    Pros

    In my day to day situation it could be worse.

    Cons

    Unable to remote work, while others are under preferential treatment.
    Pay is on the extreme low end of the industry.
    Company inclusion is nonexistent between upper, lower and off site, despite years of employ.
    Must be in Atlanta to climb the ladder.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of avoiding annual reviews, be proactive. With the economy being strong and shouting from the mountain top how good we are.. How about following through with the people that keep your company afloat.

    Pros

    It's a paycheck that's about it

    Cons

    Drivers are treated horrible, management is on egg shells, they boast that they pay overtime but you will be cut to 4 days a week sometimes 3 days a week. Trucks have a driver facing camera. No real retirement plan. It's a decent job if you don't have one but don't get comfortable.. Quit before they fire you first.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your hard working people better and they won't all be looking for jobs everyday when they get off

    Pros

    Weekly pay, casual dress code. I actually liked the work. You clock in, listen to music while you work and your shift goes by quickly. Decent pay too.

    Cons

    Management, management and management. If you are not a favorite you’re yelled at and spoken down to like a child. Constant threats of losing your job. One day you’re doing things correctly and the next you’re told by another manager you’ve been doing it wrong which counts against you. The auditors are not consistent when checking your work and how well you did that day depends on the auditors who checked. You have to constantly dispute your errors during your break because if you do it while on the clock it affects your bills per minute which goes back to being threatened to lose your job. There’s a very high turnover rate for a reason. Most people do not make it past their 90-day probation.

    Advice to Management

    There are people who actually enjoy/enjoyed working for you. Hire managers who actually care about the employees instead of making it a negative experience where it’s a lose-lose situation.

    Pros

    Benifits are good, drivers are nice

    Cons

    Management is really bad it's all about the numbers, treat drivers poorly, lots of favoritism, will pad your file with stuff that's not true, when they want to get rid of you they go to your file witch is full of lies

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your drivers badly
