    I have been working at R+L Carriers full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Paid weekly, opportunity to advance

    Cons

    Long hours, usually 12+ hrs a day, exposed to the elements and non competitive benefits. 1 week of vacation after competition of a year of employment, you don’t get 2 weeks until you complete 3 years, which is unheard of.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better by paying better and paying them overtime, turnover would probably be significantly reduced.

  4. Good starting place

    I worked at R+L Carriers for more than 6 years

    Pros

    It was a job, and it was local

    Cons

    The only employees that are taken care of, or receive exceptional treatment are drivers. Pay is horrible, too much drama in, of all places, the Human Resources Dept.

    Advice to Management

    Take training classes to learn HOW to actually "manage". The turn over rate is horrible in that company. As "management" shouldn't that issue be addressed?
