Driver (Current Employee) – Brooklyn – August 22, 2014
A typical day at MPC will vary depending on your experience, knowledge of the boroughs, and patience. Working at MPC has VASTLY increased all of the above on top of other skills I have. But, MPC will never take advantage of these skills b/c a major downside is there is 0 opportunity for advancement in this company. Supervisors and Managers for the most part are incredibly egotistical, and many of the road supervisorial positions are given to ex-law enforcement for some strange reason. Drivers are cool, generally keep to themselves, and are helpful and respectful to all-Huge Plus. That, and if your able to handle a 10hr route, means you can have a 4 day workweek with at-least 2 days straight off, that is the biggest payoff. After that its pretty much downhill. The company has VERY shady payroll practices and you will always feel/know you are being short-changed-Huge Con. The Union that represents drivers has a little-to-nonexistent presence which allows for a lot of this shadiness. (E.g. I currently make less than 14.00/hr. The current starting rate is 14.00/hr.) So, if you are like myself and just trying to get some additional, valuable experience while you plan for something bigger or if this is the type of business practice you can put up with, then by all means apply.
This was the first company i drove for after coming out driving school, A good place to start driving.

See dispatch first thing, get manifest and plan routes as best as possible,Check for vehicle safty, Pick up clients for appointments in a timely manor,using ramps,lifts,and safty devices. Communicate with dispatch if there are any kind of problem road or other wise, with the use of maps and street signs move throughout the city helping people reach there destination. I learned to utilize what school has trained me to do, and use it in the real world. Also putting my people skills to the test. As a begainer they walked me through everything until i had it down well enough to do it as second nature. Not much contact with them othere than by radio, Dealing with a unruly client that did not follow the guidelines. To help the elderly and disable to make their appointments, and sometimes get a little wisdom along the way.
