All work, No play

During the interview process, they told me it was a rotating schedule, 3 on 3 off 4 on 4 off. They said every once in a while I might have to give up one of my off days to come in and help work over time.. we had two weeks of training where I actually worked my shift. Immediately following training I worked a minimum of 6 days a week, 12+ hours each day. I joined the company, thinking I was going to be able to spend more time with my family. That is the furthest thing from the truth. These guys run through so many people, that they end up telling you whatever it is you want to hear just to get you to take the job, so that they can work you like a mule until you physically can’t any more. Then they get rid of you and replace you with the next person to do the same thing to

Pros

Plenty of overtime if that’s what you’re looking for

Cons

Everything else

Compensation

The pay is good. The training is HORRIBLE! They will write you up quickly for LMS! Which is the number one reason for 90% accidents and near death experiences. This company will do better if they listen to the production workers instead of management. The variety of schedules are AWESOME!

Pros

Pay

Cons

Lms and management

Alright place to work.

It is a alright place to work overall. Pay and benefits are good. Drivers have a bad attitude but if you can ignore that your good. Management is good a lot better than what is was.

Has its up and downs

It's a job. They pay decent, but overtime can be horrible. Only certain people get away with things. Others get in trouble over the little stuff. It can be a joke. You show up and work then leave.

Pros

It's a job

Cons

Long days

The overtime is always on. The worst part is the employees that complain about the same things all the time..... The work hasn't changed in the five years I work here, and yet they make the environment a hard place to keep a good attitude.

Pros

Pay, pto, and overtime (when you need it)

Cons

Overtime!!!!! All the time!!!! Other employees, always at work, them putting up with useless employees.

The place kinda sucked

It was a feast or famine job . I went from working 6-12’s to about 30 hours a week . The pay is ok but the insurance is very expensive & it isn’t all that good .I was paying $240 per month for my insurance with no defendants. My suggestion is if you’re going to work here stay on the lookout for a better job .

Pros

Easy work

Cons

A lot of Trump lovers

Fast pased, long hours, decent pay

Week days can have mandatory overtime. Weekend workers arent required overtime but you can get as much as you want. Weekends will send you home early if there is no work.

The environment is what you make of it just stay positive

No job is perfect, everything and place has its ups and down, me personally I've been around to understand this I control myself and the energy I create, I signed on to come in a do a job so that's what I do, I dont sit around and complain about petty things, alot of people don't have jobs so in my opinion just be Grateful that you have one to support you and your family. Peace and Love God Bless!

Pros

Pay

People complaining

Straight To The Point

I feel like the effort put in vs compensation received is very fair. Come to work, get the job done, and go home. Not a lot of extra/unnecessary stuff

Pros

Rotating schedule

Cons

Some mandatory OT

Just a number

HR and management don't really care about the workers. They can find out a person has covid and won't let anyone know. So you can take it home. Just pass! They took away the covid pay but still get the incentives from the government. So not paying you they keep. Always having to clean up others mess, and the ones making the mess just sits around and plays on their phones. Management is a joke. Totally

Pros

Leaving work

Cons

Returning to work

Poor management

Upper management doesn't care about the workers. Way to much overtime and its 99% mandatory. Including being forced to work every holiday the last 2 years. If it wasn't for this pandemic I'm sure we would have worked every holiday this year as well

Pros

None

Cons

Was decent at first

Until management decided that coddling lazy employees was more important than actually getting the job done. Pay was decent, but factoring in doing the work of three people maybe not so much.
