Pros: driving cars
Cons: no overtime, compensation, work load, staffing
New structure for ABM's is awful. They used to pay us on our personal sales and branch bonus. Not the case anymore. Pay is hourly with no chance of overtime and if your branch gets a bonus, you get under half of what the branch manager (who's usually no where to be found) makes. So basically, you're renting all the cars, generating all of the revenue, and getting under half of what the bm makes. Stick with being an MT. You have less responsibility, get paid off of what you bring in, and you have better work life balance. As an ABM, you still have reports to complete, fleet to capitalize on, and customer service issues to resolve, but aren't allowed any overtime so you must do your part in under 40 hours.
