High pressure work environment with solid benefits.
Driver (Former Employee) – Greensboro, NC – June 30, 2014
A typical day at Mutual Distributing is fairly straight-forward, you come in, get your route (which is roughly 10-13 stops) and make your run. I learned a great deal about working in a stressful environment as well as how to maximize time and efficiency. The management at Mutual is your typical run of the mill management, but it isn't necessarily a "I won't ask you to do something I wouldn't do." mentality. You will be asked to do things by supervisors that they generally would not do. Very hard to respect your superiors in that situation, even though they are decent people.
Co-workers were great, not a single complaint towards them, they were all fun and energetic to be around. Especially at company events.
Hardest part of this job was developing the amount of patience required to function on the job, but once you conquer that, the job is a breeze and very enjoyable.
Best thing about the job to me was the job itself, and by that I mean being able to hold myself accountable for my work. A driver at Mutual has to be able to work independently.
Fun company events, cookouts, Christmas party, etc...
Some days 12+ hours. Can hurt your private and family life.
