I didn't mind working 14 hour days, but in a sheet metal cab on a 100 degree dsy with no A/c at 17 an hour wasn't worth it.
Residential Driver (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, KSJuly 17, 2018
Most the trucks are always in the shop making work difficult. Its a lot of glammed up talk. 15+ drivers quit while I was there and if you aren't able to finish route you typically get berated.

Disappointing
Route Driver (Former Employee) –  Tuscaloosa, ALJuly 16, 2018
very stressful due to equipment in bad condition. 5 managers and 3 human resources mgr. If you speak up about a situation or use social media you will be forced to resign. I loved my job but could not stand by and watch as incompetent employees moved up the company ladder.
Pros
good pay when manager was honest
Cons
equipment condition and incentive pay

Not very understanding and too critical of their employees.
Roll off truck driver (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXJuly 16, 2018
Management does not care how their drivers get the job done, as long as it is done. Regardless of lack of safety issues. It is a very stressful job, but safety guidelines are not always followed. Employees are blamed for mishaps or accidents on the job.
Pros
Bonuses
Cons
Lack of safety

Very cut throat
Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Biloxi, MSJuly 15, 2018
This job consisted of many 12 to 14 hour days. Very fast paced work but also a very cut throat business. The management was poor and treated the drivers like they meant nothing to the company. This is a big corporation whose main concern was how much money could be made and not the well being and safety of the drivers.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Poor management

Inbound Account Manager Team Lead (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJuly 14, 2018
The most corrupt company that I have ever worked for. I do not believe that a single employee would would recommend this company to any close friend or relative. If you are a shady person, you can excel here. It fits in with their corporate mission!
Pros
good time off plan, free coffee, and tea
Cons
Company fleeces their customers, pits everyone and every department against each other.
