    I have been working at Room & Board full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits exceed the industry standard. Co-workers really strive to help each other out on the job. Equipment is new, and the company provides uniforms etc. Drivers are salaried employees, with OT.
    Trucks are new, all automatic. No need to worry about driving a manual transmission. Room & Board does a good job of scheduling maintenance to make sure trucks are running well.
    Three weeks of vacation and insurance benefits from day 1 are a nice perk. Strong 401k match and a new profit sharing program insure that all employees have an opportunity to prepare for the future.

    Cons

    The work can be hard some days. Lots of heavy lifting involved in all types of weather. Colder days aren’t fun.
    Not much movement within the company.

    I have been working at Room & Board full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Truly grounded in principles that extend to each and every location - retail, delivery/distribution centers and central office - unlike anywhere I've worked before. Staff are happy, connected and love their work.

    Cons

    They know their core business and stick to it, so for some it may not be broad enough.

    Advice to Management

    Keep grounded as you continue to grow.

    Supportive team and culture. Freedom to grow and make decisions. Real commitment to work life balance. Ability to problem solve independently. Great opportunity to lead and develop your team.

    Nothing beyond the usual challenges of delivery anywhere-weather, challenging buildings, challenging customers, etc
