Typical day as driver, you go in, get assignment, work dock, leave on route, work your butt off, take half a break if you're lucky, come back and work dock. That is after you spent a year on the dock, working whenever they told you to, or not to. First year is tough. Don't bother to try this if you are not going to stick up for yourself or you are anything but a white guy.
Benefits and pay are good. Many co-workers are good. Some won't like you no matter what you do or say. There is so much back-stabbing and back-biting from other drivers. The scars you will have after one month will make you wonder if the job is worth it.
Working in the office is good if you get a day job, unless you make a mistake. If that happens, the office manager will call you out in front of everyone and humiliate you. If you are fast, you can do your work and then sell stuff while on the clock or look for houses.
The weights and inspections people do the least amount of work as anyone there. One guy smokes for about 3 hours during his shift. Another gal has a photography business that she concentrates on more than her job. A third guy spends more time playing words with friends or looking at houses while on his shift. This would be the job to get.
Safety is the number one core value, unless it gets in the way of you actually doing a pre-trip or getting down the road. Don't be stopping. They monitor you for everything and unless you are one of the favorites, you will not get away with it.
Their policy should be "be tough, get good or get out" and don't question anything that management does.
unfair treatment of some employees, especially women and minorities.
