Great astomsphere
Truck Driver (Current Employee) –  Ypsilanti, MIJuly 25, 2017
The company is a great place to learn time management, and see different environments during your route travels.The training is awesome. You will be able to develop your own style for loading, unloading and delivery products to clients.
Pros
plenty of downtime, depending on the route and the driver.
Cons
Sometime holiday breaks can be hectic. You might encounter unfriendly clients at dilevery sites, who may or may not make it difficult to remain calm in very tense situations.

Full of ex-cons
dockworker (Former Employee) –  Ypsilanti, MIMarch 8, 2015
Its a bare-bones warehouse, so don't ecpet much.

All you get is thestart time of your next day of work, not an end time,. So depending on workload, you might work 4 hours or 14.

Work/life balance an budgeting is nearly imossible.

A lot of my cowrkers were released felons when I was there.
Pros
Its a good workout in the summer.
Cons
Might get robbed by a co-worker.

Hard work, Long hours, minimal management interaction
Manager/Driver (Current Employee) –  Ypsilanti, MINovember 9, 2014
Retail distribution = mall stores (Bath & body works, Victoria secret, Old Navy, Gap, Barnes & Noble, shoe stores). Dedicated route, but the volume of the next day's route is unknown until the end of the day. Peak season is the holidays and sales times of the year (i.e. Back to school, Christmas (Oct. through Dec.), 4th of July, etc.). No involvement with Senior Management, but mid management is interactive and helpful. A large cultural divide between dock workers and drivers.

Not a fun place to work
WAREHOUSE ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) –  MIFebruary 19, 2014
The work you do is not worth what you are making. You have to work at a really fast pace for 8 to 12 hours without really getting a chance to relax. You only make $9 an hour and the work you have to do it worth a lot more than that. You only have so much time to get a trailer loaded and stacked correctly and if you slow down just a little bit you get yelled at. Even when you are new you get trained for a day maybe two then you are on your own if you make a mistake they make you feel like you are an idiot. DO NOT APPLY HERE.
Pros
None
Cons
Not enough pay, management is a nightmare

Terrible
Dock Worker (Former Employee) –  Ypsilanti, MIDecember 6, 2013
A typical day at work consisted of 10+ hours of back breaking labor for $9 an hour and being REALLY FREAKING FAST or you would get yelled at. The supervisors would yell and complain if you went slow and not help out at all!! The co workers were jerks and you'd be unloading and sorting about 10,000 boxes or more PER DAY (at 6 days a week in peak season) for all, but what, only $9 am hour and we were lucky to get $13.50 when we hit 40+ hours at the end of the week
Pros
None
Cons
Extremely Fast Paced (or get fired), Heavy Lifting, Jerk Supervisors
