      Pros

      High pay relative to industry. Modern equipment an technology. Good benefits package

      Cons

      Ruthless industry, high pressure on management. Understaffed for peak season resulting in overwork and morale issues. Bonus only achievable if weather cooperates. No vacation time during winter season. Company frequently acquires local competitors and modifies operational footprint. Frequent layoffs of personnel, including management.

      Service Center Manager

      Dec 30, 2016 - Customer Service Center Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Decent pay, good benefits. Outside plant staff (drivers & techs) were hard working. Safety focused. Phone training for office staff was useful and effective.

      Cons

      Micromanaged to death by region management team. Region distribution center increased delivery runouts by 200% in multiple markets which in turn increased customer complaints. High market pricing also increased customer complaints, although that had improved over the past 24 months. Unreliable computer systems frustrate both employees and customers. No raises for multiple years. Minimal input on annual budget - numbers just backed into.

      Pros

      Full time, over time in the busy season. Good benefits. Do your job and fo home. Nice people it could be a lot worse.

      Cons

      Share holders are the concern, Not the customer. Management seems to try to fly under the radar of upper management. Thats not my job is a very popular answer from everyone. No one wants to work as a team. Very frustrating.

      Pros

      Good benefits and vacation time. Best part is the employees you work with. Very understanding general manager. Lots of busy work.

      Cons

      Pay is horrible. You will never get a raise or bonus. Better get what you want from the beginning because that will be it as long as you work there no matter how much work they pile on you.
