RTG has the worst company culture I’ve ever seen in a company with respect to its drivers. They force the drivers to carry $10 million in coverage. That’s $180 a week in insurance taken out of your check. Your deductible is $2500. They take $100 a week for a bond until it reaches $2k for shuttle drivers and $4k for home delivery drivers. For shuttle drivers they pay $1.25 per mile but nothing for unloading the trailers. They only pay $.06 cents per mile fuel surcharge and eliminate it when fuel cost drop. They will push all drivers constantly to work over there DOT hours. There is no accountability accept towards the drivers. The trucks are ancient high mileage trucks, if you decided to lease. The trucks have been leased over and over. There are no benefits. RTG aka Southeast Independent Delivery Service Inc doesn’t care about the drivers. You are all expendable. Highest turnover I’ve seen in any job I’ve ever held. Avoid at all cost.

No Life! Working EVERY weekend, working Holidays, losing days off for last minute meetings, restructured their commissions to make less money for the employees(corporate greed). They do close for 3 holidays, although the next day you are required to be at work. If you don't live near your family, kiss holiday family time goodbye. Ridiculous amount of hours trapped with 15ish other sales people on slow days when they could easily let people go home early. Losing money for doing your job. Example, you sell a living room(you are not paid until after delivery). If delivery is damaged(once or through multiple deliveries) the customer can cancel or refuse their order due to damages. Which means you just lost your commission for doing your job as a salesperson.

The managers I have had have been good. It's all the higher ups. The guys that stare at a computer and tell you you're not doing enough. The guys that get to enjoy weekends and holidays. This company forgets that their employees are human. You are a six digit number at the end of the day!

Depends on the region. I went from RTG dress code to a stricter "regional" dress code.

Find a way to incorporate some weekend time off without using a personal day. Maybe give some of the people with families a chance to see their kids play in a game!!! Don't cut commissions to give management and the owner more money. They aren't the ones doing the real work that keeps the company going.
