    I worked at Acosta full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work independently with little face to face interaction with management and/or coworkers. Flexible if needed to be. For full timers you get A good amount of paid time off for various reason; vacation, personal, sick, etc. Off on all major holidays.

    Cons

    They like to change things up about once a year which may result in being laid off, like me for the 2nd time. Insurance benefits aren't that great. Like to assign work without any prior working knowledge of how the execute the project correctly. Always getting packages piling up on your front porch that you can't fit into your vehicle and you'll wind up throwing away because stores refuse to let you place it.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better to those who are out in the field. Stop laying everyone off only to have to rehire them again because you jumped the gun. Stop unnecessarily shaking things up.

    Pros

    Acosta is a going places company.

    Cons

    They do not pay well

    Advice to Management

    Please take more stock in your current employees who have been with Acosta for years. New hires get brought in earning more money than those who have been with Acosta for years. Acosta only gives meager raises and not on any consistent bases
