    I worked at Reddy Ice full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay day was the only thing.

    Cons

    Worked there almost 3 months and took only 3 days off. All kinds of safety issues that are finable by state government agencies that were never addressed. The VP is at this location and knows it all. The VP refuses to do the work because it takes away from his bonus.

    I have been working at Reddy Ice full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you want to no life the summer and get 70 hours a week this is for you.

    Cons

    Pay is low, only receive raises when they think you'll quit. Managment/corporate openly state they want to replace all drivers with 3rd party distributors. Turnover is incredibly high due to burnout, poor planning, and unrealistic expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Stop axing positions and listen to your drivers.

    Work From home. Software is updated

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your operation part of the business cause it’s costing you to loose customers. Service will be what causes this company to fold once again. Own the responsibility of neglecting employees an opportunity to be successful.

    Pros

    -DSD experience -Food industry experience -Costumer/Retail relations experience

    Cons

    Will work you to the bone. I worked here from August 2008-February 2013. Worked along side some very great people. Company went through an acquisition and 3 CEOs. Pay was stagnant, there were no increases because of the acquisition. I recall working 14 consecutive days 12-16 hours a day, during the 4th of July holiday. HOS were violated regularly and there was even less care and consideration for safety.

    I have been working at Reddy Ice full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Reddy Ice has several pros - The company generally hires and promotes from within, the company has a lot of technically opportunities, and the headquarters are generally relaxed with fairly flexible hours. Fairly small company with about 90 people at OCS allows you to make a meaningful impact on the business (if your department has any resources to do so).

    Cons

    The cons stem primarily from being owned by private equity. The company has an absolute laser focus on always cutting costs, to the point where certain VPs might "joke" that they pay lower level employees too much. Additionally, and perhaps most importantly, the company is rarely straight forward with its own employees when it comes to their livelihood. Questions about merit raises or 401k (company matches 10 cents to...

    Advice to Management

    -Take a long term approach to employee retention and benefits -Give straight forward answers when questions about monetary benefits arise. Don't say, "maybe merit raises next month... Maybe the next month... Maybe next quarter". Commit, or don't, and let everyone know so people can budget accordingly. -Solve the good ol' boy culture -Value employees that are honest and open
