Average employee satisfaction
Diesel Technician (Former Employee), Sawyer, MISeptember 8, 2014
Pros: some busy days
Cons: sent home when slow, employee satisfaction not priority
Commission-based job. Sometimes very busy but other times techs sent home from lack of work. Benefits were not the greatest to begin with, then were dropped to lower coverage, higher premiums.

Busy place to work with a diversity of people
Lead Bookkeeper/Office Manager (Former Employee), Mount Vernon, ILAugust 26, 2014
Pros: good benefits and pay at that time.
Cons: transporting the money alone.
Meet new people daily (customers). Collect money from four different operations and counting large sums of money daily was not the hardest but collecting it and transporting it was sometimes uncomfortable. Co-workers were great and my employee was good in assisting and in attitude which made the atmosphere nice and enjoyable.

Like the work, great independance.
Truck Mechanic (Current Employee), Lodi OhioAugust 21, 2014
Pros: mechanics work well together.
Cons: lengthy time in between jobs.
When you come in for the day you clock in on shop time and wait for a truck to come in that needs work done. A work order is made and the mechanic picks up that order by clocking into the truck on the computer. The mechanics rotate the jobs by who is up next on the shop clock. Once a specified dollar amount is reached then you are working on commission – more... only. We also do road calls where we go out in a service truck to repair trucks. Hardest part of the job is waiting around for jobs to come in. Most enjoyable part of the job is the independence . – less

General Manager (Former Employee), Westlake, OHAugust 1, 2014
In this Job it's "Who you know" . I worked with a great staff . Best employees ever , but higher ups were judgmental on many different levels . Dedication and hard work not so much a plus .

Training was and has always been rushed , no guideline .

Loved the GUEST . Hard working people looking for a great bite to eat .

I do wish things were different – more... with this company , I loved working there . – less

An Adventure at every turn.
CSR II (Current Employee), Candler, NCJuly 23, 2014
I am amazed everyday at the respect and patience of your average driver. Hauling freight is not glamorous or really all that lucrative. It is fraught with loneliness, unreasonable deadlines, strict regulations, and people who don't understand the tight rope that all drivers are required to walk in order to maintain their livelihoods. So when I say that – more... the customers make my job. I am speaking from the heart.To know that every-time I remember a drivers name and a little bit about his/her life makes them feel connected and respected makes my job feel worth while. – less

Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Kingsville, OHJuly 21, 2014
The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with my co-workers' and the truck drivers'.

I learned so much about the Class 8 Heavy Duty industry.

The hardest part of the job would've been the scope of service and the lack of parts' availability. As well as the inability to foster non traditional processes' to repair the trucks' and trailers',

The – more... company culture was evolving and I wish I could have more influential in making the company a stronger industry performer. – less

Poor Management and lack of support
Tsa (Former Employee), Lafayette, LAJuly 19, 2014
Pros: great pay
Cons: poor management
I worked there for a little over a year. The managers were all friends and had very poor skills and was very unprofessional. I had a manger hit on me the first day I worked along with a girl I trained. They would call you into a meeting on your day off an hour before the meeting. They were under staffed and worked workers hard with no awards. Very poor – more... team work. It was more like high school. – less

DISHWASHER (Former Employee), Ontario, CAJuly 8, 2014
Pros: discounts on everything in restarant and gas station

I'VE LEARNED WHEN YOUR WORKING HARD INDOORS TIME JUST FLY'S. CAME TO REALLY RESPECT ALL OF MY CO-WORKERS THEY SEEM LIKE GREAT PEOPLE. THATS A GREAT QUESTION BUT MY ANSWER WOULD BE TO CLOCK BACK IN FROM LUNCH,FUNNY. – more... GETTING A 30 PERCENT DISCOUNT ON MY LUNCH AT WORK. – less

Fuel Cashier (Current Employee), Boise, IDJune 27, 2014
Pros: discounts on goods and services
Cons: inability to get full time hours unless you have been an employee there for quite a few years.
The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting different people every day. We deal with a variety of different trucking companies and each one is unique in their own way. I have learned what th pass the maximum weight capacity of a truck and trailer must be in order to pass the scale house.

needs better management
Assistant General Manager (Former Employee), York, NEJune 10, 2014
Pros: the people
Cons: no breaks
Management is very poor. The assistant manager should not be left to do everything. Only getting to sleep a few hours and being called all the time after work because the other managers are not awake is not exactly fair and was above my pay grade.
