    Pros

    Management give you ample time to get comfortable and learn the company's policies and procedures. Open to training first timers.

    Cons

    None really, great Team to work for!

    Advice to Management

    Should start new TM's with lists of leads instead of throwing them to the wolves.

    Pros

    This company had great benefits and wonderful people who work there. I was able to move up the ladder when I first started with the company which was a great benefit. Most of my supervisors were easy to work with and we got along well.

    Cons

    This is a large company and I felt it was easy to get lost among all the other employees. I felt like more like a number instead of a person. I did feel at some times in my employment that my thoughts and ideas on how to do my job were not important.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to listen to those who are actually doing the job, they have good insight and can tell you what is really going on out there. Remember what works in one part of the company will not necessarily work in another part of the company.

    Pros

    People and most people desires to do the right things.

    Cons

    Once it went private things began to change and then it stopped being about people and all about the bottom line. I understand the bottom line focus but you can't throw out the baby with the bath water.

    Pros

    Stable work environment. Decent equipment. Co-workers are great people. Pay for delivery drivers is competitive with the rest of the industry and probably exceeds that of some non-food related LTL companies.

    Cons

    Lack of upward mobility within the company for drivers. Pay for relay drivers is not competitive. On average, relay drivers earn from $10K -$20K less than delivery drivers. Shortage of drivers at the Charlotte division means securing time off outside of scheduled vacation is next to impossible. Transportation management is wholly unconcerned with the concerns of drivers that work out of the smaller drop-sites.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to communicate with the drivers in a more effective manner. Instead of telling a driver that he or she doesn't know what they're talking about, listen to their concerns and offer constructive dialogue and work together toward a solution that benefits not just the driver, but customers as well.
