Pros: Great Pay, Job Security, Good co-workers
Cons: Management, Equipment, No family time
The work is not that hard. Just unloading groceries in a timed environment. Equipment is junk however. Out of 16 tractors on the yard, only one was less than 3 years old and it was the only one road worthy. During orientation, transportation preaches an entirely different way of operations than what actually happens on the yard. The ramp door on every trailer I used would not stay closed. The ramps require most of the wasted energy of the day. Hand trucks were junk. Every load I got would have turned over pallets. Product for one stop would always be in the wrong spot on pallet. Supervisor rode with me first 3 days and we got detoured off of the interstate due to a wreck and he made me work through my break to meet time schedule only to write me up my first day on my own due to clocking out for my break 4 minutes late. Upon receiving my first paycheck, they lied about what they were going to pay me during orientation and cut me entirely out of a day's pay. My first day after orientation, I rode with a gentleman(a really good dude) and I was driving the truck and when we hit a bump, the air horn stuck and would not stop blowing, which was really embarrassing and funny too. I lasted only 2 weeks here and it wasn't due to the work. I have worked for another grocery company before and they were gold compared to this place. If you like BS, this is the place for you!!
