No company can stop you from bringing your own food and eating it in your car as long as you are working more than 5 hours they give you a half an hour break so when you're not on the clock you can do what you want to do it's a free country!

The orientation took 4 hours. We met at a different location than the one I was actually going to work at. The manager spoke about the company a little bit and we watched videos. They served us sandwiches and salad and cookies but we only got a about 15 minutes to eat because she had to get back to the rest of the paper work we had to fill out before our time was up. We did all of the personal information on computer tablets that she handed out to each of us.

At the location I work at, we offer the delivery service. The first shift runs from 10:30 am to either 1:30-2:30 in the afternoon. That’s when our lunch rush hits. Dinner rush is between 5 and 7:30, sometimes 8. I’ve worked a whole day delivery shift and come out with a decent amount of money. Tuesday and Thursday are our busiest delivery days I have noticed. I flex drive so don’t actually deliver as much as you think, but as i stated before, i have worked full shifts as just a delivery driver.

Your environment is a product of your leadership. A compassionate leader who is willing to both follow and lead allows for beneficial team cohesion. While it is not always easy, the best leadership finds a way to compromise to achieve this.
