    I have been working at Penske full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A fairly hands-off atmosphere that allows one to figure your own way to get things done.

    Good entry level positions here, whether in the office or in the shop.

    $8 gift cards given as a yearly bonus

    Cons

    Management is very unorganized, and disconnected from employees. Low morale currently, regarding the amount of work and wage stagnation.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your employees and look for real talent within your own group. Do not make hasty appointments. Ease up on the continually increasing workload, especially when there appears to be no incentive after years of loyalty.

    Pros

    You didn't need to waste your time planning what to do in your spare time. Because you had no spare time.

    Cons

    The rules and regulations imposed on the drivers, prevented you from preforming your task to the best of your abilities.

    Advice to Management

    Quit imposing on your employees all the ever increasing burdens of unreasonably acountability standards. Truck drivers are not robots, they must be allowed to used personality, their emotions and their ability to reason as to preform their task in a safe and sucessful manner.

    Pros

    Paid holidays. Great people to work with. Love the hours. Love the benefits. Very interesting, learn something new everyday.

    Cons

    Competing with the drivers, they get so much more. No raise, been there for 8 months and I don't see one either.

    Advice to Management

    Stop catering to the drivers, they are not the only ones working there. Keep telling us specifically what we are doing right!
