Pros: 4 day work week, no weekends
Cons: long hours, poor management, not valued, no room for growth
What could be a great company and great job is NOT due to poor management. A typical day is labor intensive and demanding, however, with good customer relations it makes it easier. You are expected to do sales and service on a daily basis. There are salesman but they do very little after getting a company to sign a contract. The rest is on YOU. There is little room for growth in the company. Supervisors sit behind closed doors on a daily basis and take off of work very frequently to enjoy 3-5 day weekends. They are never available or willing to help, but instead always ready to turn their head in the opposite direction or point a finger when work needs to be done. There has been a very high turnover in the past couple years due to this, and as a result lots of new people on routes who are not well trained or effective. The hiring process itself is a downfall, causing the applicant to attend multiple interviews spread out among weeks and spending a day on a ride along only to find out later that they weren't chosen for the position. Base pay is low. You will rely on commission. Some people get off at 11am each day, but others are required to work until 5pm to correctly do their job. You can find better opportunity elsewhere.
