    I worked at Prime Distribution Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility was a bonus.

    Cons

    When purchased by Road Runner, the environment went from small company to corporation. Long hours, lean staff in departments that needed more, little to no support from upper management.

    I worked at Prime Distribution Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Absolutely no pros to this place! It's going under quickly! Glad I got out when I did.

    Cons

    Roadrunner does not listen when challenges are presented and proof is provided to poor management and lack of leadership. If you are a female you might as well never expect to go anywhere in the company unless you are a yes girl and buckle down to the backstabbing men that think they know everything and actually only know how to run a business in the ground!

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to customers and providing false info to just satisfy them until it comes down and then sorry sorry and sorry again is told over and over.

    Pros

    Good people and great Customer Solution

    Cons

    Senior Management talks about Leadership. There is no leadership within the Senior Managers. Company is a profit center for the shareholders and that is it. Incompetance with industry standards and failure to empower and let subject matter experts run the business. Micro Management at its finest and lack of empathy for staff has run off several talented people.

    Advice to Management

    Need to determine if the culture is to be one of turn abd burn talent to earn a large margin, or a culture of sustainable and continuous imperovement to grow the margin. Leadership has NO clue of how grow, develop, and lead a talented team. Paying people to treat like door mats is the culture and environment you ahve created. It is not sustainable.

    Company offers decent pay eventually for management only.

    President does not listen to employees. Extremely poor HR practices. No training practices. Sink or swim mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, and hire true HR team to manage multiple issues in the company. Unrealistic corporate management.

    I have been working at Prime Distribution Services full-time

    Pros

    Great people in the company working hard to keep it running. This place has a lot of potential to be great again.

    Cons

    President has little to no experience in the field and has driven almost a dozen front office employees out of their positions out of pure frustration in working with him.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who are less arrogant and not completely clueless as to what the basic functions of the business are.

    Pros

    It's a daily circus and you will be entertain to a certain point or dissapointed to why you are even here today!

    Cons

    Per an earlier post......Convicted Felons, Drug Addicts and Mental Illines at its worse!
    The managers are not much better than the employees they supervise with there lies and misdeeds to cover themselves from company reprimands. Working on the 2nd shift is not your standard 8hr shift......you may be working up to 12-13 hours without notice!
    It's also a shame active cronyism and nepotism is allowed and accepeted in a company. This is why the employees have distrust of each other and the reason why management cannot build a culture for their employess without the fear of being reprimanded or terminated without a proper warning.......It happens far too often and its accepted behaviors amongst Managers, Staffings Agency and the HR Department!!

    Advice to Management

    Grow up and take responsibility to what you have created and the path this will lead you down......2nd shift needs an overhaul with direction and maturity to what and how a job should entailed.

    In Closing.....who really wants to hear about all ******** all of the time when I have my own problems to why I come to work for this company myself!

    GROW UP AND TAKE OWNERSHIP TO WHAT YOU HAVE CREATED......

    Pros

    The pay was decent.

    Cons

    Management has run the company in the ground. I was one of 45 that got laid off. Their lack of common sense has destroyed a good company to work for. Employees no longer get any perks other than a paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. If you value your employees they will be valueable in return. Quit trying to change so many things at one time.

    Pros

    The people that are in the office and warehouse are nice. If the right changes were made it could be a good company.

    Cons

    Executives do not have a clue. The training is awful. No work life balance. From what I was told it once was a good company making a profit that was a great place to work. Then they sold it and it's gone downhill ever since. From what I saw I would believe it.

    Advice to Management

    People are afraid to say what they really want to say to try to help the company. They feel intimidated and that if they do speak up it won't matter. Ask the team that was there in the "good days" what was different about how it was ran and how they treated employees and make some changes.
