Receptionist (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – July 16, 2018
It was fun I liked working there and really got to learn a lot of new things as a receptionist. I enjoyed getting to meet new people everyday which was mostly truck drivers some where rude some where nice.

Blue Beacon is not a reliable place to work. You may be there for 2 hours you may be there for the entire day. The hours are very inconsistent if you are trying to live on the income it is not reliable enough to live.

working at bluebeacon is a fun experience but there are someday that are hard then others. Personally i think overtime bluebeacon has gone to soft and a lot of workers and managers and higher up ask for too much and demand for to much. dont expect to get 40 hours all the time like days it rains and somw time you end up with less then 30 hours. bluebeacon is good for a 2nd part time job or during high school but personally i dont think its a good career.

A day at the Blue Beacon consisted of a team meeting followed by 8 hours of hard working, fast paced, procedure based diesel truck washing! And after the trucks were finished for the day, cleanliness of the bay was the main priority! No time to just sit around!!

Blue Beacon was my very first job. This company pays a little more than minimum wage but it makes up for it with other benefits. Even though we the workers are in the climate all day this job was absolutely fun.
Meeting new people . It nice to see 17yrs old come there to work from high school. . The bad thing is that when it's raining u want work.. if work slow u get sent home .if one mess up on truck it will slow down the work

It is a very productive fast paced work environment where you are soaking wet all day. Definitely not for everyone. The best thing is making friends with your fellow employees, some of my best friends are ones I met while working there.
1 break for 8 hours, demanding work/ work schedule

Be prepared to leave work unhappy and soaked from head to toe. Pay isn’t ok not the best but ok. The other co workers are terrible. Management is ok. Day to day life was pretty much wake up go to work then go to bed be prepared to no longer have a life.

so excited to keep truck driver clean with the work that we do. We are very careful with are washes and always keep the customer with a smile the hardest part was not getting wet whenever i left the job and i like how everyone is out going and same too them and i learned alot of safety gear that was needed

Great job to start off when in need pays decent until you're able to find something more suitable. I started this job while i was still in high school and throughout college and it helped pay a lot of bills and is good that you are paid weekly.

There is opportunity to advance if you are a focused and reliable employee. The management team takes care of you to the best of their abilities to help fit your schedule and work with things that come up in life. They manage the hours the best they can during their slow time to accommodate all employees. They have a high turnout rate due to poor employee work ethics not due to the management team. They fight for competitive pay, the job is work but the people you work with can make the job fun.
Cold, wet and miserable in the winter. Went home every winter cold and soaking wet. Hot and miserable in the summer. Recommend taking a change of clothes with you every day to work and baby powder for chafing.
