    Work from home. Good benefits

    Company went from local Idaho customers to merging with a National call center. Just a number and no longer a family environment that it once was. Leadership is awful.

    Poor Management and Communication

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Extensive Training, experienced drivers, newer model equipment

    Cons

    Very poor communication between Managers/Dispatchers and Drivers. Targeted actions in place to discourage & remove female drivers from certain positions. Company Safety slogan and actions unaligned compromising Driver Safety and causing high turn over rate. Speaking up for yourself will lead to severe consequences.

    Great Resume Starter

    May 5, 2022 - Associate Account Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I didn’t need much experience to land the position. Starting pay was good and commission goals are fairly obtainable. Training/Onboarding was at a good pace It is a work from home position. Managers are helpful and available to assist with issues.

    Cons

    You’re more of a customer service rep then an account manager. I would think of it has an advanced customer service rep. Most of the things you deal with are customers upset about price, overage fees, and missed pick ups. You have so many accounts in your book of business you don’t get to build relationships with customers. Also you don’t necessarily do much selling. Usually 1 new account will get you to your new business goal.

    Empty promises, Bad Management

    Apr 12, 2022 - Residential Driver in Campbell, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Feels good to clean up the trash in the city. Being outdoors and having the convince to go to stores around the route if need be. Uniforms provided and they try to bring in food and perks on occasion.

    Cons

    No room to grow within the company. If you try to move up, the managers get worse and harder to work with. Benefits are extremely expensive and the pay isn’t that great for what you do. Constantly over-worked and having to pick up slack of other drivers/helpers. Frustrating to come to work everyday.

    Pros

    paid decently. Workers were great.

    Cons

    Bonuses were not given fairly, some got higher raises while others were offered under 10 cents. If supervisors do not like you most likely they will find a reason for you not to get a bonus.
