When starting they do not tell you that you are mandated to work OT. Expect to work anywhere from 10-12hrs/day. Sometimes with or without a lunch break.

The job itself was great, driving all over Houston, meeting new people. Many who seemed very appreciative of the transportation provided. The equipment was very nice, also. The starters are always friendly, you have to understand their position. If a driver calls in, the route still has to go out. My issue is more with HR, Safety Manager, Dispatch, and Corporate. You all make this a very stressful environment, and it doesn't have to be. I understand, you may feel like it's just my opinion. But when a large number of your drivers feel the same, who's to blame, should really be looked at. I spoke with a guy in the higher offices about may concerns, and issues. And out of respect for him, i will not be negative in this post. You have alot of good drivers, treat them with more respect. Would someone from Corp go down, and investigate the allegations of your employees. If a driver dedicates 10 to 13 per day, to driving in Houston traffic, 7 days a week perfectly. Why are they deemed unsafe, you should try it.
