    I worked at Sterling Courier full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Money was decent at the time. Everyone made the same base pay and the difference between your pay and your coworkers pay was the quarterly bonuses.

    Cons

    When the President at the time, Glenn ran the company it was great. Everyone liked coming to work. When he left, it seemed very different. Corporate took over and laid off half their people including the ones who had been there for ten years or more and kept the ones that were new and was paid less. Their loss in my opinion. I was bitter but only because I lost eleven years of loyalty I gave them and in return didn't even get a thank you for the last eleven years of service and the many hours I put in every week over my normal 40. Sad part is I would probably still be there had they not laid me off. I was comfortable in my job and gained many friendships with customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your employees happy. Treat them as if they were making the same amount of money as you and less like you think they are worth. It may be cheaper to hire people for less money but it doesn't mean they will be as great as the employees that have the experience and have been there for years.

    Pros

    If you can deal with working in a high school environment where the adults are worse than kids, more power to you.

    Cons

    Fraternization will get you everywhere. Sleep with the supervisor, management and you can do anything you want.

    Hard work is not recognized.

    Favoritism. Only certain people are watched and reported even if you didn't do it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention and open your eyes.

    Pros

    Pay decent but the upset stomach daily is just not worth it.

    Cons

    Management is awful and makes you feel horrible about yourself. If you come in happy to face your day, you have something terribly wrong with you. It is a high school environment where there are popular people and not so popular people. If you are not liked, no matter what you do you are treated horribly and often go home in tears

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try being kind, try being human, and try not to play favorites.

    Pros

    good pay and the company offers raises almost every year. Usually the raises are about $1.00 for the year. Most desirable courier company to do dispatching for.

    Cons

    low vacation time, you hardly get vacation time. We used to work on trade days when there was a lot of overtime but nowadays forget about getting your vacation at the time you want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A good advice or feedback tot he leadership at Sterling Courier is to go independent again and not be under its parent company Quick International
