Poor work environment. No communication between management.
Driver (Former Employee) – Albany, New York – January 16, 2014
I work at this company for roughly six months. Only got two days training and was told to do the best you could. I saw other drivers get the two weeks as promised. Constant turn over rate. I saw about 10 drivers come and go. Either quit or got fired. Even saw the transportation director get canned. Poorly taken care of equipment and out of date tractors. Mine hardly ever started and I never knew where I was going from day to day. The union is a joke also. Hopefully if you don't mind working 60-70 hours a week than maybe you will last as long as I did. A typical day was between 800 to 1000 cases and 12-16,stops. Also the trucks only do 60mph.
mangement (Former Employee) – clifton park – October 22, 2013
By far the worst company you can ever work for. The mangement is horrible and treat you like a whipping boy. If you dont mind working 70 hours a week and getting paid for 40 then this job is for you. If you also like to work in a enviroment that you always have to watch you back and cover your own butt then apply. If you want to work for a compant that has no clue what teamwork is between management then apply. Also if you like being sold paradise during a interview, then once your hired you realize everything they told you was complete BS then apply.
Fleet Maintenance Coordinator (Former Employee) – Halfmoon, NY – April 10, 2013
Fast paced with varied job duties. A typical day revolved around ordering truck parts; scheduling warranty work; updating vehicle information; listing vehicles for sale. Working in an all male environment requires a thicker exterior.
Loved the job and was terminated without reason or warning
Class A CDL Driver (Former Employee) – Halfmoon, NY – September 21, 2012
Had only 2 training days, watched others get 3 weeks training.
Early start, different route every day, heavy lifting, 12+hrs. a day.
Learned roads in different cities and states. In a union environment there is no cohesion between management and labor. I expected this going in having worked in a union shop before and can usually avoid their issues by working hard. As a driver there was not much co-worker interaction.
The hardest part of the job, was the equipment(trucks) was sub-standard for new drivers, directly leading to my termination, Company did not provide GPS, and was terminated using my own GPS. Constantly being sent to other states and new area GPS was a necessity.
The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing new places, meeting new people, and knowing that I went above and beyond to help the customers and they appreciated that. Strong sense of accomplishment at the end of the day.
money was good
pay union dues and still no union representation or refund.
