    Pros

    Great people, high energy, and positive work environment. Hammer the phones, learn from your peers and leaders, and know how to handle situations out of your control. A very supportive work environment if you bought into the culture. You will learn how to sell, establish great relationships, and have some fun while your doing it

    Cons

    The grass is greener at other organizations and in other industries. The business is ruthless and you can lose your breadwinning account in a moments notice. Pay is well below average and it takes 3/4 years to find yourself in a under paying middle management role. Use the experiencew to grow as a sales rep and graduate to better opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    None. Leadership team was fair, supportive, and insightful during my time.

    Pros

    Safety, Maintain equipment very well

    Cons

    More concerned about making money than driver well-being. Will spend millions on oddball crap like wheel covers, orange seatbelts ect........while at the same time punishing drivers (taking bonus) for idling, installing idle sensors to prevent idling, yet won't spend the money on APU's!!. Batteries will not support C-Paps, Fans and God forbid anyway to cook, if you want your bonus, you have to sweat it!!

    Advice to Management

    They stopped talking to employees after Don Schneider died, corporate way more arrogant today, there way or else!!

    Pros

    Exercise facilities, friendly co-workers, stable company

    Cons

    Not enough time to get all done that's needed, hard workers have to pick up slack of others, depending on position can be hard to get approval to change positions

    Advice to Management

    Need to make employees responsible for completing their work- compensate those that work harder/smarter in order to keep them
