    Pros

    Lots of free time for living your own life.

    Cons

    The company fires people all the time. They have ways of making any and all liabilities that of the driver. They have monthly "safety" meetings which seem like a monthly reminder that you can be fired at anytime. They are always hiring because they are always firing!

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up!

    Pros

    Weekends off, holidays off, pay is not too bad

    Cons

    They ended up cheating me out of my last paycheck for the simple pleasure of it. The lady that was running HR over there on Covington Pike lied to me on the phone, and then when I took the issue to the rest of the staff. Nothing. Just got transferred around everywhere. Thanks for stealing money from me. I tell everyone not to go there.

    Pros

    And good paying part-time job

    Cons

    Medical Insurance isn’t good

    Advice to Management

    Drivers should be allowed to come into the office to clock in, and not stand outside in the hot heat of the day, and wait two minutes before they are allowed to clock in..... If a driver starts to have problems.. ...like over heating because of standing outside that’s a lawsuit for Durham..
    When Raymond Ms office staff says” the twenty five are more drivers are loud when clocking in”......
    And remember the break room in the mechanic shop isn’t big enough for all drivers to sit and wait before clock in time is allowed......
