Pros

The company is always getting more buisness so u do have job security.

Cons

Management is very disorganized and the work is very difficult warehouse workers often work extremely long work weeks and are rarely praised for doing well

Advice to Management

I would say to relax a little more when it comes to minor work offenses if your early everyday and u often work long days u shouldn't write someone up for being 1 or 2 minutes late and if guys are calling into work on certain days to get a long weekend if theyve worked hard for Months strait cut them some slack guys need time with there family's warehouse selectors work longer and harder then anyone in the company and besides people that have been there for years the newer employees guys that have been there more then 1 but under 5 years are definetly underpaid and overworked

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    If nothing else they do hold the best food show in food service.

    Cons

    Incompetant management, they care only about program business, street sales is more of a hobby then a business.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house, and start over. Pay a living wage to your employees, not an upstate trailer park wage.

    I worked at Maines full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Expierence. Better than OTR no touch freight. Building relationships with customers. Driving a 10 speed cascadia day cab. Money isnt too bad. No one can take the added months of accident free expierence from you.

    Cons

    Allot. No one in management whom you talk to on a regular basis have ever driven a truck. They really dont deserve their job. Its like the prerequesite is anything but the job they are managing.

    Training. Was trained by an over qualified driver. Trainer M. Tought me how to do it the way its supposed to be done. Similar product together. Nicely organized. He had plenty of CDL expierence. OTR, with company for years. Overqualified because he should be in management. Deserves the job. Period. Had to be "certified" to be on my own through trainer "A". Compareable to a security guard who thinks hes a cop. Uneducated when it comes to the equiptment hes operating. Told me i would damage the tractor using the jake brakes which he called "emergency brakes". Lol.

    Their local routes are sweet. But some routes are impossible to finish within your 14/hr clock. Not impossible every time. But lets say humans make mistakes and they dont plan for them(on some routes). They will have you work a 15/hr shift and be confused as to why you cant be there within 9 hours. "You have a 10hr reset?". Lol

    Equiptment is like fighting a pack of wolves. For dolleys. But once you get some you dont get overly fatigued.

    They have this image they like to play instead of just being honest.

    Advice to Management

    To whom? New york? Make the senior drivers managers. No managers should be anything but a former driver. The problems will fix themselves.
