    Former Employee - Seasonal Driver in Charlotte, NC

    Pros

    Pay is good for seasonal work

    Cons

    Training period was too short. They need to spend more time teaching the scanner (diad) even if you pick up tech stuff fast. You don't cover all scenarios you need to have memorized to make it through an average day. Be prepared to go non-stop by yourself all day as fast as you can drive, unload and load. Very demanding job but good pay considering what other seasonal positions pay. You will be driving the small truck alone after first 3-4 days after going out with your supervisor so learn as much as you can those days so not knowing something won't slow you down or stop you to where you have to call the center when your by yourself. Mandatory hour lunch break helps and there will be hundreds of packages to pick-up and deliver per day. Be in good shape as this job will test your strengh and endurance. Be prepared for a full work-out every day! This is about 20 percent driving and majority of time is loading, unloading and delivering packages depending upon your route of course.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seasonal drivers should have drivers helpers first few weeks until they master their route and won't jeopardize their employment by getting back to the center too late

    Good Company, Great Benefits

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Most employees within the Hub, with the exception of Upper Management, are there mostly for the benefits and a paycheck. Everyone is there to get through the day, much like any other warehouse job. Within the Office is about what you'd expect, crazy customers, INSANE at Christmas time.

    Cons

    Christmas, irate customers, unreasonable goals at times.
