    I worked at SYGMA Network full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and great benefits. Once you get used to the job every route you go on gets easier and easier.

    Cons

    Although you have the opportunity to be home every night/day, some routes do not permit that. It's better than being OTR but some weeks you are not able to spend quality time with your family. Seniority drivers have it made while new hire drivers, out of training, are sent on long/layover routes. You feel more like a number than a valued employee.

    Advice to Management

    Although it's easy to blame management for all the problems it's not always their fault. They have a job as well as you do. If there was enough employees for the amount of work, many issues would be solved. Until that happens many employees are overworked. Getting the route out is all that matters to the management.

    Pros

    The pay was on the lower side, even for the location.

    Managers completely lacked management experience. Training for new employees are minimal, and there is a disregard for time management.

    Please make sure that HR is experienced, and informed in regards to California law.

    Pros

    Excellent team and management that respect all company employees regardless of position. The managers take the time to get to know every employee and offer incentives to work safe and give good bonuses for producing results.

    Cons

    Management and Supervisor pay is lower than the area averages and minimal chance for increases. The will not counter offer other companies to keep good and loyal employees and the benefits costs are higher than other companies that are smaller.

    Advice to Management

    Review area salaries and work to match so that good employees do not leave for greener pasture. You have a great environment but money drives employees not just friendships.
