    Pros

    Good money, fast pace environment

    Cons

    Heavy workload (physically & mentally) will work a lot of hours if you want to usually around Christmas but then one day with no warning you'll be told that you will be going back to just Sundays. No benefits.

    Pros

    I only worked weekends and holidays, so there were never schedule conflictions with my classes. Workdays scaled with workload, so some shifts were shorter than others. Autonomy: A typical workday starts with loading trucks with the other drivers, then it's just you and the road. Let your supervisor know if you expect to be done early or late, and they'll never bother you.

    Cons

    Workdays scaled with workload, so some shifts were longer than others.
