    I have been working at Buffalo Rock full-time

    Pros

    It's a free environment, if you work hard and learn quick you can easily move up the ladder, pay is enough to pay the bills and not a bad gig for the pay overall you can make a career for yourself here

    Cons

    Down side is management at particular branches, they pick very lazy people to be ASM or managers and half of them are under qualified (besides my manager) been at 2 branches and I can say that about the first branch I was at, turn over rate is extreme so it is a lot of hard and extra work at times

    Advice to Management

    Management is fair at times my current manager is great but my old one at the last branch could work on people skills and keeping in mind we are all only human not robots that are programmed to work 24/7 and fill in constantly only to get no thanks or recognition in return

    Pros

    Off on weekends, and home every night

    Cons

    Dealing with customers at foreign owned gas stations, walmart managers that have a god complex. BR managment only cares about reducing budget every year, so that means no help when you need it unless you're apart of the good ole boys club.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate management needs to look at how things "really" get done at your distribution centers... if you don't know already that is. You'll be out of business soon if you don't honor loyalty of your drivers.

    get the moral up for your employees and maybe they will not leave to find something else
