Like any other company, there are challenges with some management; however, the correct employees are rewarded for their talents and hard work.
Promotions are given to the most qualified and the company is headed in a positive direction. I knew this as I began as a LSO driver delivering Amazon's packages. I was recognized and promoted to a dispatcher and then promoted further to an operations manager. All this has happened within my tenure of a little over a year now. LSO is delivering packages for one of the largest companies in the world, Amazon and I am excited for where my career with LSO will take me next.
In a typical day I report to work, participate in a huddle, load my van and then head to my assigned area to deliver my packages. I've learned about the pace that is required to work in the delivery field. Management is okay. I think they make promises that they can't keep, and they're inconsistent. When the weather is great it is a very rewarding job to work at.
You get to be outside. I work four ten hour plus days, and then I'm off for four days
COURIER (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – October 27, 2016
I had fun working there I loved the people I was working with I wish I had never left believe it or not I regret leaving there because now I miss it and I wish I had listened to the supervisors there. They were right and I was wrong about my departure. I miss them alot
This company has gone from being a place I'd gladly recommend for someone to work at, to being a place that if I even start to hear the letters of the company being said I automatically yell out for them to turn around and run. They no longer care about the well being of the drivers and most of them work 10-12 hour days without any type of significant break to eat or use the restroom. They choose to coddle weak employees and then put further strain on the few drivers that they still have, then on top of it, the mangers give the drivers grief when they say that they are on burnout from having such an arduous shift. As if things couldn't be any worse, they now have a pay per piece scale where the more packages you deliver and pick up determine how much you get paid per hour. For those who are working in a populous area, making money isn't too difficult, whereas other drivers who work in remote areas where they have to go long distances between each stop doesn't help them earn much. This company is a dumpster fire that is horrible at taking care of their people, and I consider myself fortunate that I no longer work there. For as much stress and headaches as I've gotten from that place, it just isn't worth it.
I enjoyed this job and the pay that I got was really good, but I was there for a month and a half and they told me that in a week that my position was no longer available. It was VERY fast paced, but I liked that. I just wish I could have kept the job....
My experience was not good, however, I only hope the best for all people and things that want to accomplish something good. I hope LSO improves and grows to be a great place to work for "all" employees & their families.
