    I worked at R+L Carriers full-time

    Pros

    Some departments have mandatory OT which is nice money. I heard they treat drivers well, because that's their company. Places to travel if you do get hired on.

    Cons

    awful management. low pay. bad work environment. most departments make you start through a temp agency and they abuse it, if you fulfill your hours it will still take months or years to get hired on. Wife also worked here and couldn't earn Vacation or Sick time until a year after she was hired.

    Advice to Management

    Create a more friendly work environment. Nobody wants to go to work to a hell hole. Treat the people that aren't drivers with more respect.
