Decent job, terrible pay and badly managed
Driver/Guard (Former Employee) – Allentown, PA – March 13, 2018
I worked here for a year, began as a driver and got my armed license within a few months. Extremely fast paced (which is actually nice) but horrendous pay considering the risk and work involved. Different routes every single week, which makes it impossible to learn the order of the route (routes are not very well laid-out, causing driver/hopper to plan the route on the fly). Most workers are excellent to work with. The branch managers do what they can, which I give them credit for, but the low pay and intense workload make for an extremely high turnover rate. 50+ stops / day usually. Most days are more than 12 hours and you will be scheduled for 5+ days / week. People will call out often and you will be double-routed or will start your route very late which will lead to a very long day. This place could be much better if some time was spent on route planning and pay was at least slightly increased.
I am a very hard worker and have no problem with strict management. This place will work you to death and probably punish you for it. No respect for good workers. I'd suggest staying away.
Fast paced, Most employees are nice
Very low pay, Badly managed, High turnover, Very long days
