    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!

    A great place to work if you are in it for the long haul. Good benefits, wage increases, paid time off etc. Great introductory wages.

    I worked at Penske full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    401k. Great name for a resume builder. Good commission potential if you work in a busy dealership.

    Cons

    Long hour potential depending on your manager. Our service consultants worked 12 hour days regularly an did not have very good shift cuts or rotation. The main reason being was the manager knew we were all 100% commission so it cost them nothing to keep everyone there all the time. By doing this he thought it would increase customer satisfaction and decrease wait times. It can lead to feeling burnt out when you end up working a 60 hour week then work that Saturday on top of it.

    Advice to Management

    Have some checks and balances with what managers are allowed to set up for hours.
