    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Branscome part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Lot's and Lot's of Paperwork, rules, Mandates, general Policies and procedures. Some fairly great hour's, and reasonable pay scale. Not much Home time --unless it rains the Jobs out. Then, there is too much Home time.

    Cons

    Supposed to report all violation's and error's of other Driver's or You will be held accountable, also.

    Advice to Management

    Need more incentives to make it a better Company to work for, and reduce the over-all cost's of the Company Health Plan.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Branscome full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    When the weather is good the work is plenty. Overtime up to 20 hours is achievable. Not so bad if you need a day off for other business to attend to.

    Cons

    Annoying because so many in upper management change their mind constantly. Many in upper management only see the bottom line and never know what is happening on a job.

    Advice to Management

    Get out in the field more.
