Not exactly honest corporate....
Driver (Former Employee), 29th and west st. south.April 12, 2015
Was laid off due to corporate not telling us they would not bid on the contract that supplied our work. This knowledge was clearly available before Christmas, but they waited to tell us that we would be laid off as of February 14th 2015 till after we all spent money on Christmas like we would have jobs.

Very Unprofessional
Lead Check In Associate (Former Employee), Lake Orion, MIJanuary 22, 2015
Pros: decent money, overtime during nov-jan
Cons: poor leaders, long hours and no breaks, forced to learn systems with no proper teaching
Typically, I arrive at 12 noon to Temp workers being bossed around by a warehouse leader who has the management wrapped around his finger.The office workers curse the managers out on a regular basis.
Coworkers are constantly on the phone. Managers have a poor way of relaying messages to their team members. Eventually i was released. I was called into the office and told It just wasn't working out and I was told to sign some random piece of paper. I refused and was told I had a bad attitude and told a guy to "F" off. basically, if you dont fit the profile, I wouldnt bother applying

Manager (Former Employee), Cedar Rapids, IASeptember 14, 2014
They like you to think they are a loving family company but how things change once you get working for them. Poor culture they can just wear a person out. Management style is to manage by intimidations and threats.

Good Pay - Poor Management
Independent Contractor (Current Employee), Eden Prarie MNDecember 1, 2013
Pros: good pay when its busy.
Cons: inconsistent work. treated like an employee, paid like a contractor.
Work is very inconsistent. As an independent contractor you have no say as to when you will or won't work. Scheduling is done the day before so very little notice if you are off or have a route. Management has some idea of how busy it will be days in advance but they have zero communication skills. When its busy you are working 50 - 60 hours plus and pay is great, when its slow you're lucky to work 4 or 5 days with light routes and barely break even. A little effort on their part would make this a decent place to work but they have a keep your mouth shut and do as your told attitude.

Horrible Employer
Past Employee (Former Employee), MNMay 10, 2013
Pros: you get paid.
Cons: no vacation
Do not let this company fool you. They offer vacation, but you are not allowed to take it. They do not believe in life outside of work and do not support employees with families.
