Driver (Former Employee) – Palm City, FL – November 20, 2018
1. The pay for what you are doing here, is not enough, you have to drive across the country delivering to 10-20 stops per trip across different states and at every stop you are getting out and manually unloading thousands of 20-50 pound flower boxes by hand or pallet. and your pay will always be vastly different and they make mistakes on it because they calculate your pay by some pennys for every box unloaded and low cents per mile
2. They pride themselves on getting you back home, if you go out on a trip leaving from Miami and ending in New York, you will be back home before the end of the week. BUT lets say you get back on tuesday night at 11 pm. You most likely will be going back on the road the next day at noon, what kind of home time is that? what did you get to do or accomplish at home? I suppose if you have a wife and kids you could see them, but if thats the case, for the pay they give anyways, you might as well get a local trucking job
3. No route stability, the route stability is only for truckers that have been with them for 5+years. They may send you to Vermont today, Texas next week and then New York City the next. on top of this, they may call you and tell you to bring the load back and take a different load instead. or call you to tell you once you deliver your load grab a different load from somewhere and run that.

Only complaint is to many chiefs, not enough Indians other than that great place to work. Was laid back. Hardest part was dealing with 10 different people wanting you to do stuff instead of going through your supervisor.

Nothing more than a feather in your cap. Gain some time and experience behind the wheel and get out. This company cares less about there drivers. It's a job for the time being but definitely not a career. Working for Armellini is a daily grind. Drivers should easily be making 100k per year but their not.

The management was great. Very family oriented. Have to be with the company for a while in order to advance. No goals to me or performance reviews. No opportunity for pay raise. Good job for experience. Good benefits. sometimes employees can get short with you.

It's not a hard job if you're willing to work. I worked as a team driver. Drivers that can't handle this job don't like hard work and lack the ability to plan ahead and should probably get out of trucking. I have experience with other companies and this one isn't as bad. Yes, you unload. Yes, you make multiple stops. Yes, you drive all 48. Yes, I made decent home time (which I took advantage of). Pay is good for drivers who have been there a while.
weekly pay, home time is better than most otr driving jobs

Treat warehouse personnel terribly. If you just need a job while you're looking for another, go here. But keep looking because it's terrible. Training is nonexistent. Most of upper management are family and friends who have been there 20+ years. Synopsis is the job is terrible. People have quit 1 hour after working. You are just a number.
Atmosphere is good ole boys club, Upper https: is disconnected from struggles of everyday life for workers.
Dispatcher (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – October 19, 2017
Supervising 15-20 drivers (mostly men) on a daily basis to delivery and pick up both freight and flower loads. I learned to calculate freight time and fuel. My immediate supervisor was mostly fair. He always had his employees back. The workplace culture was laid back but steady. The hardest part of the job was having to stand your ground with men who mostly did not like to take orders from women. The most enjoyable part was completing every task, and getting all loads out on time without any casualties.
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – North Miami, FL – July 25, 2017
In a typical day in my last position I fulfilled management warehouse of opening and closing the facility, as well as overseeing a staff of seven individuals. Throughout the day I completed various administrative duties as well, including answering phones, drafting documents and emails, filing and greeting customers. I also provided strong customer service and resolved customer issues.
this was my first trucking job and my salary was great and the benefits were great.even when things got slow they were still very competitive in the trucking community. their service is impeccable and the training i received at this company allowed me to be more marketable when i left due to the reputation of great staffed employees
