    Training was great, liked my co-workers.

    When I got a route position, I was driving almost 300 miles a day to drive all over the city to completed the route. Computer program was not useful. Was working 16+ hour days to complete a route. Not worth the pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with route drivers on a efficient route for drive time, gas and efficiencies.
