    Almost everything, its a Exploitation job - casi todo, son unos explotadores con los empleados

    Advice to Management

    They need better management, they need to be more proffesional, more organization. They treat you like an animal, they are an exploitation company. Its gonna be 30° all day environment without knowing what time you going home. - Necesitan mejores supervisores, mejor preparacion de personas, mejor organizacion, ellos son un patrono explotador, abusan de las personas obligandolos a trabajar hasta 20 horas diarias sin descanso en un ambiente frio. Nunca sabes la hora de salida. Ellos no les importa tu salud.

    Pros

    It is a day job close to home.

    Cons

    Worked at Monterey plant in Illinois for 30 plus years. Used to be a great place to work. People were good to work with. Now people in management are very prejudice against non-Spanish people. Work environment is not very tolerable. Pay is way below what it should be for the work involved. No appreciation for their employees. Would not recommend to anyone unless you are desperate.

    Advice to Management

    Stop your prejudice against anyone who is not Hispanic.

    Pros

    Pay and Free pizza at drivers meeting

    Cons

    When your out driving your told your going to be paid for detention or what ever a week later it's not on your check and by the time you get to the office (when someone's there and not out with personal problems) it's been another week then if they say oh yeah I remember it another week before it shows on your pay check if your lucky and time hasn't went in or they don't remember. I was owed a couple of hundred and it look a month!! And it's not steady one week you may work 6 days (rare) next week 2-4 (more common) and layover is a joke they will schedule a 12 hour day and when you run out of time and can't make it home it's your fault you couldn't make it home and ran out of hours (example you get 5-6 stops in Miami fl and you can't make it back , they don't care if you sat for 4 hours at 2 stops waiting to be unloaded) considered your fault because layover is only paid if no fault of the driver. Or you go to your appointment at 9am as on your paper work guess what your appt is at 2pm get stuck out your fault no layover even though dispatch messed the appt times up. If they do say that your owed something that wasn't on your check you better hope that sticker note don't get lost I had to go back 3 weeks in a row because that forgot to get all there sticky notes entered or it was covered by another sticky note.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time in the office where they are booking loads and attend a drivers meeting!
