I worked in Newark NJ it's an okay place to work when getting your Cdl - b but when you start going through their class they will make sure to tell you about other driver's business and then you got certain people in dispatch and the office also telling your business to anyone that will listen giving you a bad reputation.And don't apply to be a stand by because if you do every employee in the place wants to know why are you sitting there,they all think that they are your boss because they come and ask you why are you sitting here.And let me tell you this if you don't report to your shift they will call you which I think maybe a good Idea because ( which someone doesn't think about) even though there nasty when they call,at least you won't missing

Heavy call volume. Stressful, very rude and unprofessional supervisors and managers. Two people can work very har, one will be overly criticized and reviewed for every little thing and the second person given excellent metrics review. Favoritism.

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.

The job if helping people is great, i love assisting the clients. The management, and Metro dispatchers need to be retrained in employee relations. The employee handbook gets changed, and worded to terminate employees who are very hard working. I welcome anyone looking to work long hours, decent pay to apply. But, be mindful, you at anytime could be in jeopardy of losing your job, and unaware of the reason why.

The environment was pretty stressful for the most part due to organizational practices. Administrators could stand retraining. Can only speak for the region in which I wotked.
