    Pros

    You definitely get pushed to be better.. constantly, but most of time without much reason.
    You will learn how staffing works and all the other career paths you can take when you leave, so there's that.

    Cons

    Stuck in the 90's. Low pay, long hours. If you work 50 hours a week that is considered part time in management's eyes. Everything looks great and wonderful until a few weeks in when you start putting things together.

    The average day..
    "Go ahead, you cant break anything!
    IS THAT A TYPO IN YOUR EMAIL OMG THIS IS A DISASTER"
    - Says 8 different people

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the power trips. Listen to your employees, and not just the one or two that agree with everything you say because they want a promotion. Good luck!

    I worked at Reliance One (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Starting pay for someone fresh out of college isn't bad

    Cons

    No work-life balance
    Constant employee turnover
    Account Managers have no idea what they are doing or how to manage people
    Long hours
    Culture is awful - everyone is miserable
    Time goes so slow
    3 months to get commission checks
    Boring
    Work on low-level positions
    Expected to work weekends if you don't hit your numbers
    Management tries to brainwash you into believing in the company but it doesn't work
    If you are a recruiter you basically sit behind a computer screen for 55+ hours a week, this place sucks the life out of you

    I worked at Reliance One full-time

    Pros

    just don't do it. If you've been called by somebody or you're thinking about making a move, don't let it be to this place. You'll never see so much arrogance, stupidity and sleaziness in one place like you will here.

    Cons

    Just so much dumb. If you are desperate enough and choose to join this weird cult like place, you will see and hear some of the dumbest things you have ever seen/heard in your entire life. You will be exhausted from it. Just trust me, it's not worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Start over. You guys are actually really good guys, but you've empowered some of the worst and most unintelligent people to be the faces of your business. The people you see as the brightest in your company are gutting it from the inside out because nobody can stand these people. Not their recruiters and certainly not the managers they deal with. You have one good account manager and if you don't change and you keep on the same path you're on, eventually she will wise up and she'll leave. When she does, she'll take the only good thing about your company (and all of the business) with her. Fix it before it's too late.

    Pros

    Great way to get your foot in the door to the staffing industry. Gives you the opportunity to help people improve their lives

    Cons

    9 hour work days with the expectation to work mostly every weekend. Constant micro-managing by most of the leadership. Expectation to be able stomach getting along with all of these said managers, in order to be promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize when a manager is just awful at his/her job and take steps to correct this. Instead of having morning recruiter meetings centering around topics such as "the correct way to wash hands after using the bathroom", maybe focus on more meaningful subjects.

    I worked at Reliance One full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great entry level sales job for people with no degree. But they will work you like Nike sweat shop

    Cons

    Micro Managed to death/ 12 hour days and weekends will be required if you don't meet the quota.
    Says there is vacation, there is some offered, but if you use it you will be fired.
    No work life balance at all except for upper management
    They will only promote the popular kids, rather than the hard workers

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting your friends and promote hard workers and maybe you will grow. Also invest in your employees and maybe you wouldn't have high turn over.

    I have been working at Reliance One part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is a pretty decent gravy job. Drive a car / truck / suv / van for 8-10 hours and report back what you like and don't like about that vehicle.

    -Great for retirees, "snowbirds", those on social security, college students, anyone looking for a job that's not McDonald's, etc. They ask that you can work a minimum of 3 days a week of your choosing. Can work either AM or PM shifts, but not both.
    -As long as you have a relatively clean drivers license, can pass a drug test, simple written drivers test and a regular road test, you're basically guaranteed a job.
    -Generally pretty stress free job, you're usually the only person in your own vehicle unless you're assigned a radio tester
    -Get to drive brand new production vehicles all the way from the littlest cars to the biggest trucks and vans. This may also include pre-production vehicles. A lot better of a test drive in one of these than your average 20 minute around the block dealership road course.
    -You may get more scheduling based on the more certifications / abilities you have e.g. CDL, Chauffeurs, stick-shift, etc.
    -Lead drivers and those who are driving CDL vehicles on that particular day are paid more hourly.
    -Help manufacturers find design problems, manufacturing defects, human factors issues and overall pros / cons on their fleet of vehicles.
    -Overall generally nice people to work with, many from different walks of life

    Cons

    -Tons of turnover for various reasons: low pay, low hours, no-shows, too many call-ins, terminations for stupidity / damage, people find better jobs, etc. New faces all the time. There is no moving up, promotions, perks, etc.
    -There are no second chances - if you're at fault for an accident or damage a vehicle while driving, you're immediately terminated. This can also include putting the wrong fuel in a vehicle. Seniority and length of employment has no importance.
    -You drive in all types of weather: rain, snow, wind, stupid cold, stupid hot, etc. Unless there's 6" + inches of snow or excessive ice on the road, they want you to drive. They sometimes offer you the opportunity to go home without penalty if you don't feel safe driving in the conditions.
    -Scheduling is all over the place. You can work anywhere from 1-5 days randomly throughout the week. Reliance One is sub-contracted through Roush - Roush drivers have priority over Reliance drivers.
    -Management usually schedules more drivers than vehicles available in pool. This is to ensure all available vehicles get driven and there's a safety net for no-shows or call-ins. You can be scheduled for a shift and get sent home with 2 hours pay.
    -Management loves to randomly text you the night before (mostly on the weekends, and if you're not scheduled the next day) and ask if you want to drive, sweep floors, wash cars, etc.
    -Pay rates are set in stone. $8.25 / hour regular pay, $8.75 / hour lead driver pay (if leading that day), and $12.00 / hour CDL (if driving CDL vehicle that day). Take it or leave it.
    -You generally always stop at fast food restaurants for breaks and lunch. You can bring your own lunch, but aren't allowed to eat or drink anything in the vehicle except bottled water.
    -If something is damaged / broken on a vehicle and you don't see it / mark it down / alert supervisors, management can call you at fault and terminate you at the flip of a switch

    Advice to Management

    There aren't any mysteries here as to the amount of turnover, employee performance, etc. You know every reason and way to stop the bleeding, improve your relationship with Roush, etc. Addeco is nipping at your heels for contracts.

    I worked at Reliance One full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Getting 40 hours, when more vehicles are available.
    Some of the people that work there are wonderful to be around.
    Some of the vehicles are nice.

    Cons

    Shifts get changed around every other day.
    No organization.
    Poor management.
    Being rewarded for lying.
    Constant changes and no communication.
    Doctor notes are not taken into consideration. (They ignore them/"lose them")
    No way to move forward, and if some how you do they can switch you back with a flick of a switch (Who ever their favorite person is that week)
    Unfair treatment between workers
    I could go on forever, It use to be a lot of fun to work for Reliance/Roush but when they changed all the rules and started firing people for reasons outside of work it became a miserable place to spend your day at. If you showed up a hour early to take care of some business you wouldn't be able to because you would be forced to go out early. Its sad how many wonderful employee's they have lost over pettiness.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to stand up for your workers when they are being treated poorly. Also learn to listen to those who are below you because they know what's going on when you're not there.
