    Pros

    Opportunity to excel, learn and better your self if you really try. Super laid back office environment which can be good at times.

    Cons

    Benefits aren't the greatest. Drivers can be tough to deal with but that's a given. Work/life balance can be challenging especially with all that needs to be done sometimes within what can be a very distracting office environment.

    Advice to Management

    Implement better/consistent processes from start to finish to identify keys to success. Some of the tools used for this job our super outdated and could really leverage the use of new technology to make improvements.

    Pros

    Excellent facilities, friendly people, excellent pay (if you negotiate properly), convenient location.

    Cons

    Bad area, poor benefits, long hours, off-shift schedule, have to work most holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to treat employees as the enemy. A solid management system can allow subordinates to thrive. Poor management makes people want to leave.

    Pros

    Decent paycheck so far but you gotta hustle. Takes a while to get in the routine of how things work. I'm staying positive about everything.

    Cons

    Long hours. Trucks need a little love and maintenance. Insurance is a company I've never heard of. But I'm willing to see what they offer.

    Advice to Management

    Easy to communicate with.
