      Pros

      Met some great co-workers that helped make working there fun and bearable.

      Cons

      Upper management (CEO, COO) down to middle management (supervisors) would rather stick their heads in the sand and continue about business as usual than listen to their employees that deal with drivers and accounts on a daily basis on how to improve processes and relationships to be more effective and meaningful. They set impossible goals to obtain a 'bonus' which if ever achieved in a quarter, they split in half and save the second half to give as an end of year bonus. But if you don't make all four quarters, you don't get the end of y ear bonus. This pretty much guarantees that upper management gets more money in their pockets than their employees, who actually run the company for them. Most of upper management does not know the functions of most positions of their company, nor how those positions operate. If they were to sit in a fleet managers seat or an account managers seat, they would be totally lost.

      Pros

      Atmosphere Management Decent work/life balance Decent pay Great benefits

      Cons

      Job can be stressful at times Vacation package change is unsatisfactory (hired on when you’d gain 3 weeks after 5 years but it was changed to 3 weeks after 7 years and the original package was not honored for those who were hired under the 5 year agreement)

      Not so great anymore.

      Pros

      Friendly coworkers and immediate managers are great. There are clear guidelines for job duties and responsibilities.

      Cons

      The employees are the first to make sacrifices when times are tough and the last to receive bonuses when times are good. Covenant lies about the job they're hiring you for. They claim you'll need a college degree but any high schooler can fulfill the job requirements.
