poor management and unorganized, too long hours, paper work always changes, drivers don't stay, pay cut of 2600.00 a year. at this job you will be left on your own... to do every thing they ask its to many hours for the salary they provide

The management for Tallahassee Fl. is awful if they would get rid of the manger it would be a great job . The manger is full of himself and he thinks he know everything. Dont buy or work for Pinnacle. They wont service the customers in talllahassee. SUCKS The dispatcher dosent know how to dispatch and she is hateful. I loved delivering propane. The customers are nice and helpful.

I was disappointed in this companies compensation. The base of SALARY ¿ $ 30000 is low to begin for a truck driver within Chicago. Then to ask someone to work 10-12hrs and sleep away from home for flat salary is absurd.

You fight trough heavy traffic to either get to truck yard or even more heavy traffic to get to the off site office. Make sure you have all your equipment and the paperwork and keys. Try to find a spot to park, were your car wont get hit or broken into. Inspect and pre-trip truck. Expect to be delayed 1-3hrs (example : arrived at 5am truck not ready or serviced until 10) Expect no help or support from management. Fellow drivers are cool hardworking cats. There is way too much paperwork and no office staff. Talking with the customers.

This place I have worked for over a year and I can honestly say without a doubt that it is miserable. People there will make you sick the negativity it brings into your life is not acceptable. My manager was awesome always working with me through my roughest and sickest of days but besides that they will not hire on it took them 3 years before anyone else got hired on full time. So in conclusion I would not recommend this job even if you are in desperate measures.
no full time, no vacation, no holidays, no overtime, huge turnover rate
Administrative Specialist (Former Employee) – Gurnee, IL – March 12, 2016
As an administrative specialist, it was my job to make sure all of the drivers paperwork was completed and balanced properly. The employees complained all day long about how much they hated their job, management was in the process of continually changing one thing or another, and the organization of the office was nil. The most enjoyable part of the job was the interaction with some of the drivers - they had great personalities - and the ability to wear headphones to drown out the complaining.
Hours, free lunches
poor environment, lack of positivity, poor customer interaction
Painter/Laborer (Former Employee) – Centre, AL – March 26, 2015
The job was constant. You had to paint bottle after bottle. We weren't provided with proper safety gear/masks. For no reason at all, they dropped me from 40 hours a week to 31 hours a week, just so they no longer had to provide health insurance. Then, in December of 2013, they told us that we would only have our jobs for two more weeks. After the job was over, they were supposed to compensate me for vacation hours. They refused to do so because they said it wasn't a law in my state that they had to compensate me. It is an overall terrible place to work.
Some good coworkers
Dropped hours just so they didn't have to provide healthcare, Almost no warning before job was suddenly ended, Bad safety precautions
Route driver (Former Employee) – Marshfield, MO – March 25, 2015
The best part of the job was dealing with customers that you come in contact and your co-workers were very nice and easy to get along with. The worst part of the job was the management was difficult to work with, consistently changing daily and weekly paperwork along with other issues.
paid motels, food allowance, good benefits
route disbatch unorganized, management unknowlegeable in field, and poor work ethics
Very good company, only complaint -- hours were too long. Worked day was 13+ hours. Learned how to: manage depot, take care of problems, handle a delivery route, work with store managers, operate hand-held equipment. Management was very supportive and worked well with me. I was basically working by myself, unsupervised but reported to my superiors. The hardest part of the job was carrying filled propane tanks to the cages as I could not always park close to the tanks. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to do the job on my own with the assurance of cooperation/help from the company if needed
