    Pros

    While most companies are challenged with development opportunities, Reddy Ice was the same for a while. Now, under the watchful eyes of CEO Bill Corbin, the company is moving in the right direction! Pay is increasing and becoming more competitive as well as greater opportunities for growth. Seasonal opportunities are good and the company also gives a returning bonus to drivers who come back each year!

    Cons

    The company is working on getting a better training program together for Drivers. With anyturnaraound of a company, things take time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the company moving forward. Great leadership at the very top!

    Pros

    Good coworkers. It is a job and a paycheck. From time to time nice perks are given to employees. Lot's of opportunity to get better. Benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Senior management encourages and in some cases expect excessively long work hours. There are managers that work all night and no one says anything so naturally employees feel obligated to do the same thing. No structured employee training development program. 401K is very poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage more work life balance.

    Pros

    THEY GOT THE OPPORTUNITY TO SAY I WORKED FOR THEM! Other than that I can't identify any other pros of this job.

    Cons

    THEY EXIST !! They are incredibly unorganized and expect you to take the blame you for their mess ups. They require mandatory 14 hour workdays even though you aren't paid hourly . Sometimes they want you to work on your off day or they'll threaten to write you up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit and sell the company to somebody who can do better. Respect your employees!!

    Pros

    Pay is good if you're desperate

    Cons

    Long, ridiculous hours. I worked almost 40 hours in 2 1/2 days. To many jobs for one route and one person. Office and management personnel go home at five while the drivers bust tail to get in at 9 to 11 pm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Control your routes and hours, organization is futile

    Pros

    A cool job in summer

    Cons

    Listening to customer complain because the have to "call in for ice" because we do not service them enough and properly. No company puts profit before customer service like this one. Poor management in OVER there head!!, underpaid, under appreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire management who care about the customers, not just there pay check! Florida

    Pros

    Nothing at all. Could care less about employees and truth. Had a manager only meeting on a Friday to, on the following Monday, escort a number of employees off the property without notice. They thought these employees were not worth keeping, no chance was given.

    Cons

    They are having us fill out mileage logs starting November 2012 til December 2013 saying it was always a Reddy Ice policy and IRS policy. No manager was aware of this even at the end of the year meeting December 2013. They are having us falsify these logs. No logs have ever been kept. If they have any, it is a lie made within days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to shut down.

    Pros

    some of the co workers are great.

    Cons

    Having to backdate mileage documents for tax purposes makes me feel uneasy. After a managers meeting the managers had to not only let people go, they had to escort them out of the building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn the business before you try to change it.

    Pros

    Medical ins. lunch, vacation if you can get it. There is really nothing else a person can say positive about this new company.

    Cons

    You can have an impeccable record for over 15 years but if you are older than 40,This new Reddy Ice Corp. Holdings owned now by Centerbridge as of Jan. 2013 eliminates your job or puts you in a position that you do not qualify for only to terminate you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your upper management, I am sure you can figure out what is coming next.
