Pros: a select few fun people you work with
Cons: too many to list
As a driver you are expected to deliver medicine to peoples homes. Sounds easy right? Scheduled M-F? Sounds nice right? Wrong. You come in at 10am and are scheduled til 6:30, but don't expect to leave at 6:30 because that will VERY rarely happen. So if you have a kid you will miss out on a lot of events and the child's life. The management could care less if you're out until 10 o'clock every night. I know this from experience. You would also think that you since you work m-f you'd have the weekend off. Wrong again. You are on call Saturday and Sunday for 24 hours each day, which means if they call you, you have to answer your phone and go take the delivery. Doesn't matter what you are doing. You have to drop whatever it is you're doing and leave to go on a delivery. Most of the deliveries are in the Cleveland, Massillon, Ashtabula, Stratton areas, but there are some places we go that are 2.5 hours away. Can you imagine if one of those come up at 5 o'clock? Terrible huh? Well be prepared for it on a daily basis. If you go home on time it calls for a celebration. And you're doing all of this for a very very poor compensation per hour. As the driver you are expected to do everything you are asked no matter how stupid of a task it is and when it could've easily been done in the time it took for that person to make you do it. So you work 10+ hours regularly, and you're on call Saturday and Sunday, all for a very small compensation. And the best part is, no one even cares that they send you out at 5 o'clock to go 3-4 hours away, as long as they get the money. A very money hungry business who don't take care of employees. That's why the average driver lasts about a year or less.
