.Overall it is a great company but the pay could be better and the employee appreciation needs to be more noticeable. We need to have more interaction with fellow employees.

High Stress/little to no work/home life balance
Area Service Manager (Current Employee) –  Lowell, AROctober 23, 2017
A typical day is from 5am-5pm, and it is go go go from the minute I clock in.
Little to no help from others, but always asked to help in other areas as well.
Being asked to come in on days off (I don't mind most days)
The hardest part about the job is the management style is not very good and the managers do not care for their employees the way they should. As well as the compensation is not what it should be AT ALL.

Overall company great, Specific accounts not so much
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Joliet, ILOctober 22, 2017
Specific account I worked for had toxic company culture that zapped employees of drive and energy. Blatant favoritism and lack of professionalism makes it difficult to focus on getting the job done at times.

It was not uncommon to be talked down to by superiors, and it is very clear there is a general lack of trust between middle and lower management.

Outside of that, the job can be very rewarding on the driver relationship side. I would look forward every day to talking with and helping my drivers.
Pros
Free lunches when metrics are met, great benefits, great pay, meet a lot of new people
Cons
Toxic culture, high stress environment, no lunch breaks (lunch always at desk)

not having fun very stressful
Truck Driver (Current Employee) –  Channahon, ILOctober 22, 2017
i plan to leave real soon very physically demanding lifting 700 pound refrigerators through a small ramp by myself. Look for another job instead of wasting your time. money will not add up. especially if you have a family you need to take care of. Disrespectful managers to was what turned me off about this company.
Pros
people ( your peers) are awesome to work with
Cons
pay does not add up very long hours for morning time, physically demanding

Pros
PTO and understanding on sicknesses

Pay, lack of good management

Very fast paced industry
Fleet Manager (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAOctober 14, 2017
Everyday something new happens, and a new issue arises that you may not be familiar with. You are in charge of a certain amount of drivers that you watch over throughout the day. Your main duty is to make sure the drivers are making OTD (On time delivery). During the drivers tour of duty you are to alleviate any issues that may arise and to make strategic business decisions that don't affect the efficiency and time sensitive day to day business operations.

Truck Driver Class (Current Employee) –  Lowell, AROctober 13, 2017
They want to manage your pockets the way they want you to believe you suppose you to make. Pretty much its a starting place for new drivers. They make sure they work you for the little money they give you.
