Office (Former Employee) – Somerset, NJ – April 7, 2016
Biggest finger pointing company I have ever known. You get promoted as long as you're in the click. They claim to have any open door policy but you put your job in jeopardy if you complain about management or someone that management likes. I know someone had a frivolous claim about them and they were fired. No warning was given. But someone else had the same complaint made about them and they received a warning. They over work the employees demanding they work late with no compensation. HR dept needs a huge overhaul. The director is a liar and backstabber.

during peak seasons there was so much work and not enough people to do the work. many people worked very long hours and it still was not enough the only one who benefited from this was the owner and his family.
Budd Van Lines makes you believe that you are worthy to them, when you are not. They claim to have an "open door" policy but make you feel like you are wrong if you express your opinion. Human resources has a very tight bond with managers so if ever go to HR on an issue, you are treated differently the next day. They promote people that lack common sense to managerial positions because they know someone in upper management. Six years, one raise! They claim "salary freeze due to economy", however they are always investing in high-tech devices. I worked from home, several times one summer, after a full day of work and was never compensated. Beware, this company is not what it seems! Of course the VP of National Sales gives them a 5 star rating! I would too if I was making 6-figures a year.
co-workers, outside agents
high medical insurance, managers, staged meetings with the owner, no raises, inadequate compensation for what you do, no christmas parties, no bonuses
The company could be a great company to work work for. However they need re-organzation in the management department. They claim advancement that is far from the truth. With a week of training your are to know everything about your job and everyone else's.
If they took the time to train properly they would be able to keep people that are hard working. Also, the work environment would be much better if grown adults were not spoken to as if they were children.
There is no real team work as they would have you believe. It is who can we blame vs. how do we correct issues that repeatedly come up.
A typical work day for mw was arriving early (5:00am) to prep and fuel truck for travel and job. Management was like at anythonther place. You have your great managers and those who though they were the best and snobbish. I always smiled and said hello. The hardest part of the job was the long hours of packing houses and loading trucks. I loved the traveling and see other areas of the country.
the many friends i made
if they don't like you they found a way to get rid of you
When I started with Clearview, I was told that the company would be moving to Long Island and found the job with Budd Van Lines. Working with the payroll administrator ran a weekly payroll. Job ended after 3 months with a Layoff.
