    Pros

    Terminals are everywhere. I had one 12 miles from my house. You can find a place to park in most big cities

    Cons

    Red uniform was itchy. I washed it at home still itchy. If you started your week driving in the day by Wednesday even if you sit all day Tuesday you will be working at night and trying to get enough sleep during the day

    Advice to Management

    Now that logs can’t cheat maybe you will do better with safety

    Advice to Management

    Typically, you're stuck cleaning up someone else's mess. If you're a hard-worker, you'll realize that 85% of the people you work with are lazy and inconsiderate to the next person. You can pretty much get anyone hired here that has a clean record and can work, meaning that you can probably get your lazy friends hired here. Management is toxic, they will let anyone be a manager who strokes their.. back.. the right way. A lot of favoritism.. A LOT.. If you decide to call them out on something completely wrong, be prepared to have them try and fire you. You can write all of the complaints you want against management, or even other employees, but they will some how end up in the garbage. Eventually, you'll notice that the place is toxic and that the pay and benefits are definitely not worth all of the drama.
