Route Driver (Current Employee) – Memphis, TN – June 14, 2015
This can be a great job or even a career, but the amount of work you put in on a day to day basis with the pay it is not even worth it. You start when they tell you to start, they want you to run the route the way they want you to run it, you got to explain everything that throws a flag. The pay is almost entry level pay, but want experience drivers. Route Manager is not the title anymore, it is route driver, simply because "manager" is a title in which you have power & control of your route and they want that power & control. Many changes have been made due to them saving money for their stock investors & s_ _t on the customers & employees that put in the dirty work. Your immediate supervisors are scared to fight for you fearing that they get replaced & the roadnet (mapping system) they spend millions for have NO doggone clue just numbers and a path they see that has less miles. Now with that said of roadnet I'm not sure it's a truckers GPS or just a car GPS, but when ask all they tell you is that "trucks can go through this way". Greed is overtaking this company & they don't really give a doggone about the boots on the ground, just NUMBERS NUMBERS NUMBERS!!! They had a creed... "CUSTOMERS 1st" then it was "EMPLOYEES 1st". Well they don't show this anymore it's all about SAVING MONEY 1ST is now their creed!!!!
Pay is not up to par for the labor & responsibilities, management too scared of their bosses, greed of this company is destroying the comfortable work environment.
