My supervisor was the best guy I ever worked for!
Gas Tech/ Commercial Driver (Former Employee) – Portland, ME – April 24, 2018
Love working for this company! A typical day at work starts at 6 a.m and ends when your finished your route or when the weather dictates. If you like to work like I do you get all the hours you want. Winter you can avg. 65 to 75 hours a week. During cold snaps 80 hours plus. You rotate in and out of on call schedule and you also do after hours calls in winter. Management is good, my relationship with my ops manager was awesome! The CSC manger is typical pro company and didn't value you or your loyalty or commitment to the organization one bit. The company as a whole deems you as just a number. Your expendable at the least little bit of property damage. i.e. running into a mail box, fence, trellis, or what have you. Very high stress, demanding, they only care about the gallons you deliver and that's it! That's where the company makes their $$. They have you drive 150-200 miles a day and will give you 30-40 stops and have you driving down goat paths in the winter, working 70-80 hours a week and want you to deliver but God forbid if you do something with the truck or do damage to something, they have no leniency whatsoever. And it doesn't matter that they can't get anyone to do the job or want to work in the industry. They can't hire anyone to work those types of hours or put up with the on call and call out. They'd rather fire the loyal guy who puts in 120% and works 80 hrs a week and hire some new guy who's not going to last and spend a year training him and $thousands to replace you!
All the hours you want, overtime, good bennies
Lower then avg. pay for the job, High stress, High expectations and demanding, Horrible driving conditions in winter
