    Pros

    Three day work week and 5 paid holidays.

    Cons

    Supervisor was a horrible person. He only cared about himself. You will get nowhere with this company unless you are willing to do tile work, brake jobs or other mechanical work for the supervisor. Find somewhere else to work.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees they will tell you the truth. If the turnover rate is high there is a problem check it out. You are only as good as your weakest link.

    Pros

    Plenty of windshield time , great customer interaction, main corporation seems well organized with plenty of corporate education courses

    Cons

    DOT is always a ominous cloud for drivers getting logbook HOS fines if DOT ever got ahold of the companies GeoTab records showing far more driving hours then the mid-management has drivers put in their logbooks or manifests it would be bad for the driver.. Tend to regularly violate state law WAC 296-126-092, particularly section 2 & 3 as well

    Advice to Management

    DOT E-logs in all cube delivery vehicles as hired drivers rarely know DOT regulations to drive non-cdl CMV legally out side the state

    Pros

    Exeter warehouse. Good co workers to be around with. Good if you like overtime.

    Cons

    Exeter warehouse. Very selfish and horrible management especially from the receiving side. Very degrading place that lies to you and don't treat their employees like human beings. Wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy. Overtime is forced on people and they have really screwed over their employees a lot in the past and present. The quota is unrealistic and do not care when you try explaining yourself to them. You'll always be in the wrong and never will be right in their eyes.

    Advice to Management

    Actually show consideration to your employees and show appreciation. Give realistic goals for people to hit.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Pay wasn't bad either. If you showed interest in furthering your career in the company it seems they did their best to make it happen.

    Cons

    Usually felt overworked. Too much do do with not enough people. Company can do this backward or old school which made it seem like the work was harder than it had to be.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to expect non management employees to work overtime, take them off salary.
