Great Seasonal Opportunity if you are learning just starting your trucking career or to earn extra money on the side as a Route Driver
Route Driver (Current Employee), Memphis, TN – October 4, 2014
Working with this company as a driver is about as close as you are going to get to running your own personal route. You deal directly with your clientele and create more clientele and better relationships with existing clientele everyday. If you are not good at DSD you will find out real quick.
Merchandiser (Former Employee), Kansas City, MO – August 13, 2014
Pros: they are definently not pros .
Cons: they are definently cons
Horrible job . Worked on the ISB side of the company . Terrible pay . You can make money in the summer , but when winter comes around, that's another story . Worked on horrible machines . Very unreliable . Management was confused most of the time . My boss had not one clue how the machines worked . Always tried to pass the buck to avoid work . Had some – more... cool co-workers . Hardest part of the job is dealing with the management . Most enjoyable part of the job for me was getting fired . Made my summer . Don't recommend working here at all . McDonalds is way cool compared to this circus show . – less
Long hours, the pay is good in the summer but your going to work for it.
DSD (Former Employee), Atlanta, GA – June 5, 2014
Pros: its a job.
Cons: very little time at home during the summer!
A normal day at Reddy Ice is starting out with 15 Plus stops alone! And hitting those in order according to the route which is okay. The kicker is they want you to call half-way thru the route and at the end to give you more work. Which is a little ridiculous when you been out there for 11+ hours. Poor routing. I don't thinking its the local management – more... fault but more of a corporate issue. – less
Drivers (Former Employee), Ranlo nc – May 14, 2014
Pros: parking lot has an exit
Cons: dirty filthy office
They claim to be hiring for class b Drivers and when you get there they tell you it's for class A. There is a reason they are so hard up for new hires it's because turnover there is 500% like a revolving door. There even offering $50 if you bring another lost soul in to work there. In this economy they have to pay someone to apply there. That says it – more... all. Stay far far away from reddy ice – less

Bilingual Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Dallas, TX – January 23, 2014
Pros: call volume was low enough to be able to assist every customer
Cons: it was hard to get ahold of plant managers
I had to get ETAS from the Reddy ice distributors and follow up with the clients. The hardest part of the job was having an unhappy customer and not being able to get the order out when promised. My coworkers were very supportive and helpful. What I enjoyed most about my job is that it was slow paced and I had time to breath in between calls and reply – more... to emails or complete additional tasks. – less
