Former Employee - IT Support in Lowell, AR
Former Employee - IT Support in Lowell, AR
Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Lots of empowering for individuals
People are generally good.

Cons

Horrible management, and their managers are probably even worse.
Either people have been there for less than 3 years or for over 15, usually no in betweens.
All about who you know and not what you know of-course.

Advice to Management

Really need to concentrate on your management. People leave the company because they hate their managers, not the company.

    Former Employee - Company Driver in Memphis, TN
    Former Employee - Company Driver in Memphis, TN

    Pros

    For an entry level driver, they offer some competitive pay packages. They were one of the first companies to offer regional jobs where they get you home every weekend.

    Cons

    Management is not very helpful. They always want you to do something, but when you ask for a favor the answer is always NO!!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. You are not the one out there dealing with all of the customers. Treat your employees with a little bit more respect.
