    Pros

    The best reason is that your on your own schedule. no one looking over your shoulder all day, you take care of the customer and they will take care of you. ( even tho the company is making it harder and harder to do this.

    Cons

    Lack of comunacation between management and customes and drivers. changing policies and rules to suit them and thinking about employees ans customers.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about bonuses and bottom line, and take care of the customers, stop raising there prices without warning and doing it for no reason, even to the point of violating the contract. Stop adding in new charges and raising them at will. and most important stop making them wait for thier linen, by running enough linen so that there isn't any shortage. there is NO reason for drivers to wait for the days linen to be produced, you knew what was needed for each driver 5-7 days in advance.
    The old way of trying to cut expences to the bare bone doen"t work anymore, grow customers, inprove customer satisfaction and the profits will grow. Also get back to quality, We focus to much on getting the work out and don't pay attention to quailty. and for gods sake get out of the paper and restroom business. lets do linen and do it right for a change.
