I worked for the company in 2016. started about 5pm, went out to mazda warehouse, picked up, returned to volkswagen warehouse where i loaded my trailer. i usually finished my day about 1:30 am. I had no problems with management. They made sure i was there and did my job, i made sure to do my job and they payed me. on occasion i was asked to pick up a second route when a diver didnt show and i was paid extra. overall the work environment was friendly, consistent and clean. if you like to work and are self motivated, its a good place. if you are not self motivated you probably wont like it. I thought the wages were fair considering i had weekends off. I wouldnt mind working for them again.
Pros
5 day work week, fair pay, good equipment
Cons
night work

I gave this company 2 years of loyal service, only to be let go after being accused of stealing less than 5$ worth of lunch meat from a fridge. With only fuzzy evidence as proof, they sided with the accuser. Management only cares about themselves, no communication with drivers, you gotta take care of yourself. The pay is good, but the hours suck.

Management has no clue what they’re doing Don’t expect to get a day off because they run with the bare minimum and have no coverage The pay is slightly higher which they believe is enough to keep you from leaving after they treat you like dirt

Never a raise, currently paying about .10 less than industry, never more than 2 weeks vaca, no sick or personal days. Management never follows through or takes care of any problems you have with pay or anything. Everything is a last min decision on there part, even when known well ahead. The only plus is new equipment with free Sirius. The driver turnover is just crazy.

Asst customers, auto parts division, perishable, division, & General merchandise. Good pay for the work that you do. Drivers are pretty much the backbone of delivering freight

If your not afraid of long hours the job can earn you a great salary. You will be delivering to two aldi grocery stores per. Shift loading unloading required.

At first, communication was quick & negative situations we're handled with a sense of urgency. Work was an enjoyment, I didn't feel like I was working. But over time it started to seem like those that complained or we're a problem well rewarded. Management stopped any kind of inclusion in solving the problem.
Pros
Hometime
Cons
Management, lack of communication, pay vs cost of living in the area.

I invested 6 yrs with this co.
2 as a driver & 4 as a Mgr. It was a total waste of time.

Expectations are to work 8-12 hrs in the office and another 10 driving @ night due to conditions your supervisor creates.

This co. upper mgmt. is unethical but good @ covering it all up.

But nothing lasts forever & eventually it will all come out ...

Not the worst company I've been employed by, but your not treated as an equal, just a person in a seat. I had plenty of attributes for advancement, but was overlooked. The lack of communication between the management and the drivers is almost non-existent.

Very high earning potential here! BUT you will not have much of a personal life. Also , you will touch the freight but it's super easy and low stress.

A few hiccups with management but you'll get that anywhere. Being close to a main domicile is the way to go. i was a state away and getting supplies or having clear communication was a set back. Other than that seemed to be a great company for anyone to stay.
