    Pros

    This was a great place to work. People friendly, work/life flexibility, everyone worked great as a team.

    Cons

    Once management changed everything went down hill. The new controller is very controlling, rude, unprofessional, actor and plays with employees' minds. Very hostile. Upper management ignores what is going on within the departments.

    Advice to Management

    They need to think more about they employees and the environment the workplace.

    Pros

    There are none. This company sucks

    Cons

    They want you to take on ALL the expense as an independent contractor but have control over you like you are an hourly employee. They screw you over on your check and you have to see a 3rd party to discuss it. Then if you quit they screw u on your last check as in you will not get it. If u don't do what they want you to do like work the weekend or take a route u don't want. You are on their crap list and will get every crappy job possible. I took Martin Luther King Day off and they got pissed and took away my gas card and incentives. My check was $300 not even enough to pay my rent. This company sucks. If you want to work for free then fill out an app at Priority Express

    Advice to Management

    Stop acting like you pay your drivers by the hour and give up some more money.

    Pros

    3 $50 gas cards to start, but see cons.

    Cons

    Decent route pay, if you get one. If not, expect to get 72 or 73 cents per LOADED mile. That means if you have to drive an hour to J'Pipp to pick up an order, drive 5 miles to drop it off then drive an hour from J'Pipp to get home, CONGRATULATIONS, you just made less than $4 for about 2 and a half hours work. Oh, and don't forget, that driving could be in any kind of weather. If you have a route, count on working a 12 hour day...every day. Oh, they expect you to work weekends AFTER you've beaten your body and your car to crap all week. There are no sick days, no benefits and if you or your car goes down, SCREW YOU! As far as the gas cards go, they will drive you for every drop...and then some. And the gas allowance? A very bad joke in extremely poor taste. BTW...tolls and parking are on you. So that $4 may have dropped to $1, unless you get a ticket. Then your paying for the privilege of driving for them. Welcome to the global economy.

    Advice to Management

    Pick up parking and tolls. Pay more for per mile. Have a minimum per run to offset getting paid for only loaded miles.

    I worked at Priority Express full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Close to home ok work environment. Office people are friendly and helpful. Stressful environment at times as the majority of office personnel are dispatchers. Office manager was a clown. He is now long gone and one look at his LinkedIn profile reflects his self appraisal yet inability to stay with one company. Avoid working for "VE".....

    Cons

    Was hired as an outside sales rep yet was literally put into an empty office by myself with a list of customers to harass/call while the troll office manager sat in the other room listening to my calls. This went on every single day. Finally he left early one Friday afternoon of a holiday weekend and had a fellow outside rep tell me I was no longer needed. Quite the guy.

    Advice to Management

    If you hire someone for OUTSIDE sales but really intend to make it an INSIDE sales/marketing position, just say so and stop wasting people's time. This perhaps may explain the high turnover rate at this position????

    Pros

    I am not yet aware of a single pro. Probably won't stay long enough to find out that there ARE any pros

    Cons

    Pay structure gets you about $6 per hour. That is significantly below minimum wage. They tell you you can make $400-$1200 per week. Maybe, MAYBE if you drive 15 hours per day. But then, if you drive 15 hours per day, you may have spent as much as $75-$95 on gas each day. Plus maintenance on your vehicle, parking, tolls, taxes will eventually have to be paid, plus all of the other fees. What gives?? Managers pretend they don't know how long routes are, and they seem to assume that their vendors are dumber than posts.

    Advice to Management

    How do you sleep at night?
