    Pros

    If you work Hard and follow the Policy you can work your self fast up to a better Position. the nice thing is you are guarantied 40hour pay with benefits. the other nice thing is two weeks paid vacation and 1 week paid sick leave. Now of course it depends on what type of Boss you get. So long you stay out of trouble privately and be on time at work you will have a Job

    Cons

    Crappy Upper Management what pays them self there Bonuses but tells there Managers you cant get your Raise even that you have a contract with them for the raise. Crappy Trucks and faults promises that you will get new Trucks 250 New truck divided by 184 Branches. The Person that Calculated that should be fired and if investors would invest in new Trucks you would get your Money back instead patching up trucks and sending people out without A/C. saving on the wrong end and giving the investors there Cut instead thinking on the people that risk there lives Daily. Any Owner knows if you keep your Employees Happy you will have less Theft and Less turnaround
