    Pros

    The company has great benefits. I learned a lot about OSHA and Dot regulations. I learned a lot about what requirements are needed to become a driver. Gained a lot of knowledge.

    Cons

    The drivers that I had to keep track of to make sure they were complying with regulations didn't care about following the rules.

    Advice to Management

    my advice would be to stay on top of the driver's logs and ver VCR reports to keep them qualified to drive so that they can you keep drivers

    Pros

    The Pay and the benifits are great. Good over time hours. I need 20 words filler words blah blah blah

    Cons

    Co workers lazy, always helping the next guy, managment is struggling to be in charge, managements book knows how to do it better than the men who do it

    Advice to Management

    Step up listen to the drivers. Punish those who slack off all day. Reward them guys who do their part. And know their getting tired and they feel punished for getting done to just be told to go do more.
