    I worked at Estes Express full-time

    Pros

    Get in, get the work done, and go home mentality. They are not extremely concerned about small ridiculous things such as safety. As long as you're there on time, and get your work done, you're good.

    Cons

    Management can be rude, but boo-hoo

    Advice to Management

    None
