Pay attention to the reviews about stress, bad management, low pay and long hours. Do not dismiss the comments about the treatment of employees, be very aware of sneaky, underhanded, number driven tactics by supervisors and managers. You are not an asset to them, no matter how it may appear, you are expendable! Don't plan on a lengthy career with opportunity for advancement. Not at all what I'd hoped for or expected out a company that preaches a lot but only holds drivers accountable.

Go some were else, this is a stressful work environment and customers are very unhappy because of short staff on CSRs and drivers. Work orders are way behind so customers take it out on the CSRs. It takes months to get repairs to large containers and I have found many W/O not completed. I was treated poorly about making a mistake on a W/O but the manager is far from perfect. Sad because this could be a great place to work.
