Be ready to work like a donkey.
Driver/Operator (Former Employee) –  Allentown, PAFebruary 14, 2019
They will work you out till the clock runs down from 70 to zero in just 5 days, don't get fooled by the pay per hour, that is something u need to earn by working every single minute of your 14 hour days.
(You will eat that sandwich while working on your liftgate)
NOT worth it at all,stay away.
If you see a job looking for drivers and is a liftgate operation....RUN AWAY

Worst place to work for
Truck Driver (Current Employee) –  Windsor, WIFebruary 8, 2019
This company is worse than those big carriers people complain about.They will tell you every lie to get the work done,will force you to work in adverse and hazardous weather,make you work on your off days with no notice.dont go for that guranteed pay you will bring home 700 $ after their expensive basic health plan cuts out 120 $/week for you and your spouse (family plan is more expensive)and taxes. equipment is in bad condition .They hire too many people and then they start cutting days out of your schedule to keep new drivers running. They will send you to tight stores With 53 ft trailers and wont listen if you complain. freight falls on you when you open the trailer AS THEY USE NO LOADBARS AND LOAD HEAVY TOTES ON TOP .every driver complains about it as it is a safety issue but nothing is done about it .STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE

Unproductive waste if time
Truck Driver Class A (Former Employee) –  Joliet, ILJanuary 26, 2019
Run the other way unless you're desperate down and out or inexperienced in trucking. The loads are overweight and they know it before they assign the load to you because they have emailed the drivers and told them. Average of 43,000 pounds each day is unpredictable they changed the rules and a and procedures everyday and lie about the rules they choose the client over the drivers. NO sick days NO paid time off NO raises. Local drivers are home overnight driving Regional miles averaging 300-plus miles a day sometimes 400 High insurance costs that no one has heard of
Pros
Some accounts nearby home
Cons
No sickdays No PTO No raises

Micromanagement..., job continues to degrade, high turnover
Driver (Current Employee) –  Nazareth, PAJanuary 17, 2019
I've been at this company for a LONG time. At the moment I still work here but only until I manage to find another company. At that point I will be submitting my 2 weeks notice.

Years ago this company was awesome to work for. The trend has been a continuous fall year after year. They keep upping the pay and sign on bonus in a desperate attempt to attract and keep drivers. It's not worth the money, or the stress.

Maintenance is performed by a third party company and trucks/trailers are in a constant state of disrepair. Everything except for their new driver facing constant recording camera systems which of course are always in full working order. 4 cameras plus audio cover the truck with night vision. They will nitpick every single aspect of your driving expecting massive amounts of following distance even in NewYork city. Every stop sign, every red light, braking too hard, accelerating too quickly, turning too tight, it all gets recorded and a flashing green indicator is stuck to the window to make sure you know about it. Tractors from just about every brand and most are automatics. Peterbuilt, Freightliner, Kenworth, International. Some single axle mixed in with dual axle. Some 300,000 mile, others over 800,000. Vast majority have something wrong with them. Writing up issues accomplishes little. Many trucks have pink VCR slips going months with the same issues listed in the comments.

Slip seating only with outside contract drivers coming in to make up for their inability to retain drivers especially in winter and summer. They will destroy and smoke in the equipment,
  more... you will be questioned if that truck was last used by you. You WILL freeze and sweat your tail off unloading sometimes over 45k lbs of freight one box at a time. Stores are tight in some areas, easy in others. Some are downright unsafe and risky backs for no real reason other than store personnel don't want to push a cart more than a few feet. Speaking of stores expect anywhere from 4 to 11 stops per day with computer derived schedules near impossible to accomplish.

New drivers will start on extra board. Expect to be on call 24/7 and ready to go. Any missed dispatch results in forfeiture of the weekly guarantee. If you manage to get a bid don't get too comfortable. They will re-bid the runs at random in order of seniority. It used to be every major holiday. Now it seems to be whenever things become too out of control and need to be restructured (often). Have plans? Don't make them too far ahead. Many runs are setup under unrealistic perfect scenarios to a full 14 hours. If anything goes wrong you're laying over in a hotel.

Vacation is impossible. Once a year vacation time is bid on in order of seniority. Max of 3 drivers per day can have off out of 50+. Good luck ever getting time off when you want it. I was high in seniority and STILL couldn't get time off. Btw they blackout Oct-Nov (peak season).

It's disappointing and sad that the need to write this review exists. I and many other drivers on this account who hoped these things would be addressed by management stayed as long as we could and repeatedly made our concerns known at safety meeting after safety meeting. CPC used to be the company to work for. The place drivers went to once they put in their time at a big box carrier and had the skills to get hired here. Now anyone with 6 months experience and a safety certificate can run a high paying account with backing maneuvers no one that fresh out of school should be attempting. There's a reason they have fallen from the old requirement of 3 years experience to a mere 6 months. Some of those reasons are listed above.

Maybe you'll be the lucky one who gets hired after management realizes why driver retention is so low and makes significant changes. I can't speak for every location so perhaps yours will be better than the ones I operated from. All I can say is be prepared and good luck.

Poor management
CDL Class A Driver (Former Employee) –  Windsor WisDecember 23, 2018
Management at cpc is more worried about their customer Walgreens, than the drivers that keep their customers frieght moving. Put in three years did all of what was asked of me and Walgreens dispatch threw me under bus for asking questions and labeled me a trouble maker. Cut my hours and miles to a minimum till I couldn't take care of my family. When they say guarantee of pay they should say less than $700 a week. Insurance coverage was horrible for amount of money that was being paid on a weekly basis. $145.00 a week for a family of 3 and they covered nothing. Have a stack of bills to prove it.
RUN AWAY RUN FAST!!!

Job total drag on your life. Management works for Walgreens only.
Delivery Driver for Walgreens (Former Employee) –  Windsor, CTNovember 12, 2018
You have two sets of mangers bearing down; from Walgreens and Cpc. From Walgreens your just a number as they aren't involved in hiring, paying, days off, firing, ect.. Plus, equipment often is sorry shape; expect to get hurt regularly. Trailers too big for area, snow mostly in the way. PLASTIC BUMPERS! Family irrelevant! No directions given in NYC where GPS not helpful and maps don't show traffic. EXPECT NYC to slam You! If your walking and have your CDL upon return! Your happiness is short lived. Cpc mgt. Only listens to Walgreens. Cpc will mistreat you at any cost to maintain there marriage to Walgreens!

Driver (Former Employee) –  Woodridge, ILOctober 7, 2018
Dishonest operations Manager. He will Say anything to get you to say you will take the job. Horrendous starting salary. Blood and hair screen for drugs prior to job offer , then when you say no thanks to the low ball job offer He complains, “why didn’t you tell me before I was charged for the tests”? The Answer is because You didn’t tell me about the specific job assignment until after all the tests. THIS PLACE IS ALWAYS LOOKING FOR DRIVERS ! That is a bad sign. No one sticks around. Run don’t walk away from this disaster.

Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Windsor, CTSeptember 30, 2018
Its just bad work. No fun. Your Happy for brief moment when you get back with your license and walking. Your work each day is totally unpredictable, if your good they give you the most hazardous drive [Bronx, Queens, Jersey City, ect.]. No regard for seniority. Often trailer is too big for delivery: hope luck is on your side. Unrealistic timetables. Never off cameras watching you; witch involves you in a point system. You are always being watch and recorded. Management builds a file on drivers: Alway's filled with exaggerations, distortion, and complete lies, Management is completely selfserving, selfish, and confident that your easily expendable. PLease don't trust them with your life. Dwight

Non-Stressful Environment
Dispatcher/Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLJune 17, 2018
The people that I work with are great. I actually work at the customers location, we are a contractor that supplies their drivers. It's really stress free, and not hard work at all. My manager is awesome. My only complaint would be the pay and benefits are really low and if you live alone an have any type of bills this job won't do it alone. And yes it's considered full time
Cons
Pay is really low and lunch is really short
