Used to be a good place to work
Driver (Current Employee) –  Springfield, MOApril 25, 2018
This used to be a great company to work for. The loads have gotten worse and the drivers are making less money. Management seems to be ok with it and have the attitude that we should be happy to be working here. Looking at taking a $10,000 cut this year compared to last year. No thanks!

Standard cooperate warehouse job
Driver Check-In (Current Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIFebruary 21, 2018
Work is tolerable and at times enjoyable. Most people are friendly to each other. Great benefits. Upper management does not communicate down the line. Change in rules left people without raises they were promised. Union dispute still lingers and brings uncertainty of the future.
Pros
Benefits (401k stock purchase plan)
Cons
Lack of communication from upper management

Works you to death
Driver (Former Employee) –  Denver, COJuly 5, 2017
They work you harder then you are expecting but they have no problem paying you for it
Very patient with new drivers
Extremely hard to get a good route because it's based on seniority and some of those guys have been there for 30+ years

Long hours, hard work
Driver (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNMay 3, 2017
Get plenty of rest and eat your Weaties. 12 to 16 hr days. Lack of communication in upper management.Rules are being made and changed on a daily. If your a new driver you will be put on different routes daily with little assistance. Most trailers are loaded to the gills. On the flip side great group of coworkers and lots of teamwork.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
Long hours no breaks
