Student Driver (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXJanuary 21, 2017
Ok so at labatt the driver training is good. they advertise 600-1200 cases a days. its more like min 1000-1600 cases a day unless you run the baby routes but then the pay goes down for the baby routes. it's a good place to work the drivers are good guys but this is a back breaking job. Management is good the guys are really nice people. if your looking into getting into trucking this is a great start. but keep in mind its a 3am -5pm job. you get weekends off which is great but sunday is like not having off considering you gotta go to bed early (before football games start). if you have family and need to stay local to start your trucking career this is a great place. if you're not tied down to staying in town i recommend looking into other types of trucking jobs. (OTR, Regional) overall a good place to work, but dont be fooled its a very very physical job. I jumped into this and thought i would like it. Just waking up way before the sun and working 10-16 hours a days and the back breaking work wasn't a feasible long term job. But again great people there at Labatt.
Pros
Off Weekends, Home Everyday, Decent Pay, Great Trainers
Cons
Physical labor will be intense

Driver (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJuly 10, 2016
Driver management is great, schedule is great, pay could be better but work/life balance is great for a food service job. See the previous post for a good overview of the type of company your dealing with. Just filling up space to have enough to get out of this required review.

Night Freezer Selector (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 17, 2015
The company challenged its workers daily to meets quotas and deadlines. The job was heavy manual labor in a negative 20 degree freezer. Several chemical leaks had occurred and workers were told to work through the side effects unfortunately during my period of employment. I can honestly say that management is lucky that nobody has been seriously injured by ammonia fumes and heavy machinery. The coworkers were all generally hard working people, but there was a real lack of diversity. The hardest part of the job was toughing the elements. The most enjoyable was basically getting paid to work out! It was a unique change of pace from retail management and a great learning experience.
Pros
Working with heavy equipment vehicles
Cons
Hard labor

Easy going environment that never showed any sign of appreciation for hard work
Spotter (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 10, 2015
Management never showed any appreciation for working hard. It made me sad by the way I was treated by Labatt after I quit. Never did they contact me to ask why I quit after 9 years!
Pros
No management meddling with work at micro level
Cons
Graveyard shift

Challenging but little advancement
Route Driver (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXMarch 13, 2015
I was a local route driver for almost a year. To work here you must eat and sleep like an athlete. Also must be comfortable driving a semi downtown or to the border and back. 15 hour days actually lower pay for the hours you will work. The rare short days offer the most pay per hour. Always work available and management is decent but not always truthfull. Good job overall but don't expect to move up unless you are a "star player".
Pros
must stay healthy, good paycheck, performance rewarded monetarily
Cons
long hours, hard on knees, only one option for advancement

well organized and great company to work for
Route Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXJanuary 26, 2015
This company is great if you like to be active and interact with customers. It is well organized based on management and dispatchers communication. They are willing to do what ever it takes to take care of the Customers as well as the drivers. I would consider this job again if it is open. I enjoyed working for the customers and with the co-workers. I consider it a fun job for those who enjoy working out and move a lot. The equipment is always up to date and maintained. Management will always assist if needed-open door policy.
Pros
Beneifts and healty life style, great communication and management
Cons
weather

Not worth it
Delivery driver (Current Employee) –  San AntonioAugust 25, 2014
You'd figure with as many years in the business they'd have it together, but they are lacking.
If you're looking to work here as a student driver, to get your cdl, my advice don't. While you're in training you won't get paid for the routes you go out on, and you're on routes more often then not. Some how every Friday they are late loading the trucks. You don't even get to clock in till they are done either so you sit around waiting anywhere from 30 to 90+ minutes. Your route can change without any prior notice, and multiple times in less then 24 hours. Your typical route is 12 to 15 hours long, and if you run out of time you have to lay over. Trainers are more concerned with personal phone calls then doing any actual training or keeping track of it. Some of the drivers are completely nuts and drive aggressively. Trainers smoke in the trucks even though it's against company policy... Great example of what not to be.

In short, I've been there a short time and already want out, I could care less about the sign on bonus I'd get after 2 years.
Pros
Free exercise?
Cons
Over work under paid, management doesn't care, 12 to 15 hour days, insane trainers, dirty trucks, poor training, lack of communication, poor routing, only 5 days of vacation a year
