Route Driver CDL B truck (Former Employee), Boston, MA – May 27, 2012
Pros: free beer, 4 day work week. free trip 2 europe after 5 yrs.
Cons: work extra events for free, the way the owners look down on u
as a route driver once u have that route there is nothing else for u to do. they are very CHEAP. they don't take criticism well and blame everything on the drivers. my co-workers were good but no outside contact after work. the hardest part of the job is dealing with the lazy sales reps for ur income depends totally on ur sales reps. they have several – more... events during the year and they want u to work them for FREE the company makes great money on these events and u get zilch. my customers were the best part of my job, as a driver u need to have the right personality no one wants to deal with a grumpy UN happy employees – less
