    Pros

    It is a great starting pay, you also get good commissions. They are new to the Chicago area so there is a lot of potential to grow with the company.

    Cons

    They have pretty long hours. They expect you in at 7:15am and you don't usually leave till 5:30PM.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down the work hours and have some perks ; such as free lunch. Schedule should be based around high answer volume times. Such as 7-9AM 11:30AM-1:30PM and 3-7PM.

    I worked at Reliance One full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great entry level sales job for people with no degree. But they will work you like Nike sweat shop

    Cons

    Micro Managed to death/ 12 hour days and weekends will be required if you don't meet the quota. Says there is vacation, there is some offered, but if you use it you will be fired. No work life balance at all except for upper management They will only promote the popular kids, rather than the hard workers

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting your friends and promote hard workers and maybe you will grow. Also invest in your employees and maybe you wouldn't have high turn over.

    I have been working at Reliance One full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Honestly one of the best decisions of my life was accepting my offer here, everyone here wants to see you succeed and it's like a big family here. The company and management will always help you and give you the right tools to succeed. If recruiting is your thing, Reliance One is a great place to work. (Rated top 30 places coolest places to work in Detroit).

    Cons

    Long hours, insurance is a bit pricey, some days can be hard if you're trying to fill a tough position but that's the nature of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the positive environment going and continue to focus towards growth and expanding into new markets!


  6. Provides a good part time position

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    If you like to drive for 8 to 10 hrs a day this is the job for you. New cars and trucks are provided.

    Cons

    Later starting time for start of shift would be helpful. I travel approx. 32 miles one way and starting at 5am requires me to get up at 3am.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more on site management

    I have been working at Reliance One part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is a pretty decent gravy job. Drive a car / truck / suv / van for 8-10 hours and report back what you like and don't like about that vehicle. -Great for retirees, "snowbirds", those on social security, college students, anyone looking for a job that's not McDonald's, etc. They ask that you can work a minimum of 3 days a week of your choosing. Can work either AM or PM shifts, but not both. -As long as you have a relatively clean drivers license, can pass a drug test, simple written drivers test and a regular road test, you're basically guaranteed a job. -Generally pretty stress free job, you're usually the only person in your own vehicle unless you're assigned a radio tester -Get to drive brand new production vehicles all the way from the littlest cars to the biggest trucks and vans. This may also include pre-production vehicles. A lot better of a test drive in one of these than your average 20 minute around the block dealership road course. -You may get more scheduling based on the more certifications / abilities you have e.g. CDL, Chauffeurs, stick-shift, etc. -Lead drivers and those who are driving CDL vehicles on that particular day are paid more hourly. -Help manufacturers find design problems, manufacturing defects, human factors issues and overall pros / cons on their fleet of vehicles. -Overall generally nice people to work with, many from different walks of life

    Cons

    -Tons of turnover for various reasons: low pay, low hours, no-shows, too many call-ins, terminations for stupidity / damage, people find better jobs, etc. New faces all the time. There is no moving up, promotions, perks, etc. -There are no second chances - if you're at fault for an accident or damage a vehicle while driving, you're immediately terminated. This can also include putting the wrong fuel in a vehicle. Seniority and length of employment has no importance. -You drive in all types of weather: rain, snow, wind, stupid cold, stupid hot, etc. Unless there's 6" + inches of snow or excessive ice on the road, they want you to drive. They sometimes offer you the opportunity to go home without penalty if you don't feel safe driving in the conditions. -Scheduling is all over the place. You can work anywhere from 1-5 days randomly throughout the week. Reliance One is sub-contracted through Roush - Roush drivers have priority over Reliance drivers. -Management usually schedules more drivers than vehicles available in pool. This is to ensure all available vehicles get driven and there's a safety net for no-shows or call-ins. You can be scheduled for a shift and get sent home with 2 hours pay. -Management loves to randomly text you the night before (mostly on the weekends, and if you're not scheduled the next day) and ask if you want to drive, sweep floors, wash cars, etc. -Pay rates are set in stone. $8.25 / hour regular pay, $8.75 / hour lead driver pay (if leading that day), and $12.00 / hour CDL (if driving CDL vehicle that day). Take it or leave it. -You generally always stop at fast food restaurants for breaks and lunch. You can bring your own lunch, but aren't allowed to eat or drink anything in the vehicle except bottled water. -If something is damaged / broken on a vehicle and you don't see it / mark it down / alert supervisors, management can call you at fault and terminate you at the flip of a switch

    Advice to Management

    There aren't any mysteries here as to the amount of turnover, employee performance, etc. You know every reason and way to stop the bleeding, improve your relationship with Roush, etc. Addeco is nipping at your heels for contracts.

    I worked at Reliance One full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Getting 40 hours, when more vehicles are available. Some of the people that work there are wonderful to be around. Some of the vehicles are nice.

    Cons

    Shifts get changed around every other day. No organization. Poor management. Being rewarded for lying. Constant changes and no communication. Doctor notes are not taken into consideration. (They ignore them/"lose them") No way to move forward, and if some how you do they can switch you back with a flick of a switch (Who ever their favorite person is that week) Unfair treatment between workers I could go on forever, It use to be a lot of fun to work for Reliance/Roush but when they changed all the rules and started firing people for reasons outside of work it became a miserable place to spend your day at. If you showed up a hour early to take care of some business you wouldn't be able to because you would be forced to go out early. Its sad how many wonderful employee's they have lost over pettiness.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to stand up for your workers when they are being treated poorly. Also learn to listen to those who are below you because they know what's going on when you're not there.

    Pros

    Good pay, fun job, lots of room for advancement, they hired people with little or no experience so it was a great place to go just out of college

    Cons

    management has a very military style " as in the type of haircut you have and no facial hair of any kind" can be clicky but if you work hard you will be in the inner circle

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes there was too much emphasis put on going above and beyond.
