    The compensation is competitive. Work hard and communicate well - there is plenty of opportunity to move up and around within the company.

    Pros

    Excellent opportunities, livable wage at the bottom and more money than I've ever known at the top.

    Pros

    Fairly easy job. Management is cool. Laid back atmosphere. Depending on account, you have cool co-workers.

    Cons

    Boring at times. 50+ hour weeks. Not the best work-life balance. Weak PTO, but that's mainly due to the industry. Drivers are in high demand which results in them being able to get away with a lot crap that should result in termination.

    Advice to Management

    Give better benefits to your TM's and be a little more strict to the drivers.
