Good Pay for Physical Work

Every house will vary in regards to loads, routes, treatment of drivers. Work is physical and requires patience when dealing with customers and with the load itself.

Not impressed
Accountant I (Current Employee) –  Cypress, TXJuly 15, 2016
Does not pay well, but expects a lot of hours put in. Benefits are pretty bad, commute is great (Cypress location). Overall, the commute and casual dress code are not worth the poor pay, benefits and work/life balance. Plus, they are constantly making changes in their processes/procedures, and moving their employees into different roles. Lots of meetings but nothing gets done.
Pros
Commute, casual dress code, 9/80 schedule offered
Cons
Pay, benefits, work/life, management, constant changes

Marketing Associate (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PANovember 7, 2016
Really one of the worst places i have every worked in my career. The management is not strong and caters to larger pieces of business, and does appear to care about the small business owner in the industry.
Pros
none

Get out what you put in
Marketing Associate (Current Employee) –  Denver, COJuly 9, 2016
At times, during busier periods, be prepared to correct issues as they occur from 4 am to 8 pm. Holidays are the busiest times for your clients so availability around holidays is key to success, taking vacations have led to loss in business. If you work hard and produce above expectation the compensation can be wonderful. Benefits and 401k match is as high as I have seen it. Huge company, lot's of potential for advancement.
Pros
Benefits, Compensation, Opportunity
Cons

Fun workplace
Order Selector (Former Employee) –  New Orleans, LAOctober 31, 2016
Long hours interfere with personal life. It will distance you from your family and friends. But you will have an opportunity to make a lot of money if you don't over work yourself.
Pros
Free lunch
Cons
Short brakes
