driver (Former Employee), colorado springs,co.April 16, 2015
Pros: some set routes
Cons: favortisim
Poor management and dispatchers are lost. All driving positions there are based on seniority, dispatch will only give you the gravy when the weather is bad and those drivers don't want to risk their driving record. So called Asst. Mgr. makes the decisions if you get any miles that week or not. 34 hr. restarts twice a week so expect to be sitting unless its blizzard conditions then you will be the first person called.

Pros: home every day, good pay, flexible management, family culture, 2 consecutive day off

A big small company, big enough to provide security small enough not to feel like a number. Home every day , can really make as much or as little as you want to work.

Long night, more work than a driver should be responseible for
Truck Driver (Current Employee), Brattleboro, VTDecember 17, 2013
Pros: boss is easy to get along with, trucks are new volvo's
Cons: long night hours, lots of delay time, runs change constantly resulting in pay cuts
Job requires driving 53' trailers with bread to depot (best part of job).
Also you unload stacks of bread with two wheeler which is hard work good exercise, and pays good. Next part after unloading you pack out. Pack out basically is breaking down bread trays into each
Each route in depot ,could anywhere from 4 to 10 route. Pay is by miles , stop pay , drop/hook , and per tray rolled off/ packed out.
You don't get paid for first drop/hook or stop per run, which means
If you do two runs in one day you lose your first drop/hook and stop for each run. Roll off is payed by amount of trays on trailer paper work has amount on it so you don't have to count them period.
Pack out is paid the same as roll of except pack out take twice as long, is a lot harder work and is rough on body need to be in good shape. Work schedule is nights anywhere from 2pm to 7pm or whenever the bakery gets the loads ready. The customer (flowers foods) has little or no consideration for the drivers. You an wait for loads to get for many hours instead of being home, however you do get paid delay. Flowers will change runs to their best advantage (saving them money) even if they have to cut runs in half therefore cutting drivers pay and they do it with as little as a days notice.
Also everything that goes wrong is the drivers fault.when loads are late distributors complain to management and make it seem like its the drivers fault even though the bakery is running 2 , 3, sometime 4
Hours late. First fleet makes sure flowers is happy at any expense.
No holiday pay except Christmas and thanksgiving flowers wanted us to work on both those days but enough employees complaint
And they change at last minute. You always work five days a week even on holiday weeks. Work week is split getting tues.and sat.

Enjoyable place to work
Driver (Former Employee), Russellville, ArNovember 30, 2013
Pros: e-logs, bosses, equipment
Cons: short runs
Wasn't there long, 6 months or so before the terminal I worked out of was closed down. Only alternative with First Fleet was to work out of a terminal 400 miles from home, elected not to go that route. Fine equipment, E-Logs, decent pay, good people.

Work hours for delivery of International Paper products was anywhere from midnight to 9 a.m. in the morning, so the start times daily varied. This was the hardest part of the job, starting at all sorts of hours..

Co-workers were great. Helpful and friendly. They were about the most enjoyable part of the job as well. Along with being home daily and the equipment we were using.. top notch.

Management was excellent
Driver (Former Employee), Murfreesboro, TNOctober 10, 2013
Pros: some short days
Cons: some long days, poor pay
Odd hours, long days, compensation was low, equipment was very good. Days would start between 1am and 7am. Learned how to connect to trailer at an odd angle. Management, my immediate supervisor was very knowledgeable. Co-workers were easy to get along with. The hardest part was going to bed at 5 or 6 pm and getting enough rest. Most enjoyable was the level of support.

Great place to work.
Fleet Manager (Former Employee), Cleveland, TNJuly 24, 2013
Pros: great drivers and managers.
Cons: weekend night shift.
A typical night would involve taking calls from drivers, customers and the shipping warehouse. I was responsible for assigning drivers loads and making sure we made on time pick ups and deliveries. On the occasion these timelines weren't met I would call the customer to let them know what was wrong and how we planned to fix it and any eta adjstment that needed to be made. I aslo set up drivers loads to be sent to payroll for processing.
