not a lot of home time
CDL A Driver (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TXMay 18, 2015
If you are looking for home time this is not your place 34 hours is literally all you will get and that includes the time you arrive at your hub as they will tell you that you have to log out immediately so you can start your 34 hours even though you need to unload fuel and do paperwork etc.

Friendly atmosphere with a demanding, set, pace and goals.
Procurement Analyst (Current Employee), Rocky Mount, NCMay 13, 2015
Pros: The benefits are nice.
Cons: Its hard to catch up once you leave your desk.
There's no such thing as a typical day at MBM. Almost every day is a different kind of fire to put out, but that's part of its appeal.
Its fast paced, demanding, competitive, and sometimes there's so much to do that you take your work home with you and finish it there.
The hardest part about the job is learning the job, it takes so long to learn every aspect of it and the only way to do it is through experience, but the best part is once you've learned it and you apply what you've learned every single day then you're golden.
Management varies from person to person, everyone is different, and your co workers are the same way.
Over all its a good place to work as long as you can handle the demand.

Horrible horrible horrible
Warehouse associate (distribution operator) (Former Employee), Rocky mount NCApril 21, 2015
Pros: You get a lot of hours
Cons: You get a lot of hours, not enough money, zero respect, they can careless about you
Not enough money for what they have you do. People quit every other day and there work just gets added on to the hard workers there, I feel bad for the people that stay. instead of having more employes come in and work to together they have just 4 or 5 people work in each job position doing the job at least
(10-15)people should be doing TOGETHER !!. And after people quit every other day they hire another person back fast through unemployment agency and online. and it all becomes a cycle I've worked there for 1 month and never seen so many people quit and get hired then quit and someone else get hired all the time , management sees these but DOESN'T care because they see everyone else lower then them. Whelp Someone has to do it is what they always say and give you extra work when some quits .People pull and hurt there backs working 13-14 hours straight for 5days in a row and get fired because they can't pull 1400 cases anymore? we are people just like you not robots,slaves or stupid

Do a favor to yourself, staw away
Picker (Former Employee), Columbus, OHDecember 27, 2014
Cons: benefits, life style, slavery, no life at all
Money is pretty good, $1500-$2000 every 2 weeks. Looonng hours, 10-13 every day. You get days off during the week, no weekends. No matter who you are, you get CERO respect from managements or supervisor. Benefits are ok, not good but extremely expensive. Unsecure job. Warehouse's system is useless. Minutes go up every day, cause every day someone quit or get fired. Again, Stay away from this place.

low pay. over work. poor management
driver representative (Current Employee), fort worthSeptember 1, 2014
Cons: dont look for anything
.38 is what they pay. 15$ a stop. You work 6 days a week. All shifts. No home time. You only 1500 every two weeks. No perks. No days off if you needed .Truck not stacked right. Dolly unloading. Always late. No help. Short staffed ,guys quit weekly. Its the worst. You wont make it here. All trucks are 39000 lbs or more. You have to unload by yourself. Fast or your fired. You gotta put away the product and build your own pallets. You take a risk every time you work for them. All equipment is broken ,used. Not enough trailers. Trucks governor at 65. You will work 168 hours. You have to wait 90 days for health insurance. Paper logs. You have to stop at all scales. Hand pallet jack. You gonna work like never have in your life, then your check wont be close to what you deserve. Bad news

Toxic Work Environment
Former applicant (Former Employee), Columbus, OhioSeptember 27, 2013
Pros: experience
Cons: work environment, no holidays, long hours without compensation
Typical day 12-14 hours. Senior Management displays an overall lack of concern for its employees, from mid level management to the hourly employee. MBM Senior Management is driven by greed and coercion. The Transportation Group is expected to conduct their portion of the business through unethical and sometimes illegal measures. The Warehouse Manager position is a scapegoat for poor decisions made by members of Senior Facility and Regional management. The work environment can be described as hostile in nature, and apathy among the employees is very high. Not recommended as a place of employment for long term.

Archaic management style = Poor work environment
Manager (Former Employee), OhioSeptember 8, 2013
Pros: competitive pay and benefits
Cons: lack of concern for employee welfare
Senior management shows little concern for employees. Employees work excessive hours for thankless staff of senior management. Senior management style is by threat of punishment rather than being supportive and encouraging.

Average employer with average values and philosophy.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Orlando, FLJune 14, 2012
Average business mentality. Not an overly upbeat place. There were some challenging projects, but mostly it was the same thing day to day. Not horrible, just a little boring.

Excellent Pay bad loads
Driver Representative (Current Employee), Rocky Mount, NCSeptember 4, 2011
Pros: home time
Cons: micro-mangaged
If you don't mind being micro-managed, then this is the place for you. The problems with MBM are as follows: They have several checks in place to make sure their drivers are on the route and on time. Only one is needed and that works half the time. The warehouse personnel don't know or are to lazy to T-stack the pallets so they don't fall over and damage product. Collapsable items on the bottom with heavy items on top. They don't secure the load like recommended. Shrink wrap is on with a single wrap. When you bring it to the attention of management they either ignore it or pass the buck so the next person can ignore it. No consequences are given to those loaders that cannot do the job properly. The load rates are out of range for these guys from my personal opinion. On the delivery end they give you an unload time that is the same for each stop. This is not conceivable considering each stop is different from personnel to amount of product needing to be unloaded.
The equipment you drive and pull is newer but has been severely damaged by misuse and neglect by drivers and lease companies.
So if you can deal with all that, then you can work for this company. The per mile rate is .38, they pay for each stop, each piece, and backhaul and Wait pay. I make good money and am home every night. I get one day off a week. Drivers needed.
