  • Health Insurance(214 comments)

    If you can afford it, that's great! But the options I were given were unaffordable and with no coverage. There were NO doctors within 100 miles of me that were "in-network"

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off(116 comments)

    All FT employees get vacation. You get more weeks the longer you're employed.

  • Job Training(105 comments)

    Easy and breezy. The CDL’s take awhile

They at least offer it, but unless you're shelling out your entire paycheck, health insurance doesn't cover much. Vacation time is given to all full time employees. You get more weeks the longer you're there.

The best place to work. Especially if you’d like to move up the ladder quickly and become manager with the best pay. It’s a job so it’s stressful of course. Above all else, my favorite place of employment so far.
