Driver (Former Employee), Loudon TN – April 15, 2014
Pros: good pay if you get the miles
Cons: almost everything
Not bad if they can keep you busy enough pay is good if you can get the miles if you don't run team then it's the worst job ever.... Medical is good but way to expensive.... Management have no clue one of the worst managers I have ever worked for... Stay away
truck driver (Former Employee), nationwide – March 27, 2014
Pros: non really
Cons: to much to mention
Everything you just read is complete bs. No detention, spotty miles. U will load and unload your trailer for 7.50 flat rate when sometimes it takes 3,4 hours to load and unload. U will scale ur load onsite but if u don't know how to load u could be hours getting your trailer loaded. U load with a forklift which u could be waiting hours for because there – more... is only one for the drivers. Dispatcher will lie in a heartbeat for no reason to save the good loads for his buddies,while,u run a team run only 400 miles. No onsite maintenance which is ridiculous for a so called trucking company. They have loads where u actually have to push 1500lb totes with wheels off the trailer yourself and if u can't ride a forklift u will be very frustrated with this job. Turnover rate is very high once drivers realize all bs u have to put up with. If 5 ppl are,hired,3,to 4 quit before 3 months. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!! – less
B cut (Current Employee), Brookhaven, MS – June 14, 2013
Cons: healthcare could be better. breaks are sufficient.
My work day begins with a team meeting and stretching exercises. I learned how to be a team worker. The management at the job is fair. My co-workers have the mind set to get the job done. Nothing is really hard just the distance. I live in Monticello and would like to find a job closer. I enjoy being around people doing the best I can on the job.
Cut Block/Operator (Former Employee), Pekin, IL – May 23, 2013
Pros: good people to work with most of the time. work keeps you in shape.
Cons: work hard and repetitive, advancement is a joke, machines aren't ran properly and are dangerous
I learned how to use a forklift and a band saw safely. Most of the co-workers are great people. The hardest part of the job was keeping up without hurting yourself. The most enjoyable part of the job is working as a team with your co-workers. Management is really bad at everything. There are about 6 people doing a one person job. Benefits are terrible – more... unless you are making as much as management. Advancement is hard, especially when they are looking for a reason to fire you. It especially doesn't look good when an employer lies to State Unemployment and the local authorities then gets caught. Also, expect to kiss a lot of butt if you are looking to advance. Seniority is said to be policy but in reality is non existent. – less
Manufacturing Manager Trainee (Former Employee), Albion, MI – March 22, 2013
CCPI can be hazardous to your wellbeing. All managers and maintenance personnel are expected to be on call 24/7/365. Holidays? What are those? Personal time? What's that? No work-life balance. Completely unqualified managers making very important decisions and if you don't play their game, you'll be lucky if you get 5 minutes notice to grab your gear – more... and get walked out. Looking to be a corporate lackey, focused on advancing your bosses' careers and becoming a true workplace sociopath? This is the place for you then. Otherwise, don't bother. You'll just get used up like tissue paper by the has-beens who run the company. – less
