Company Culture

In the five years I worked there never did a supervisor tell me "good job"

Support from management

There is a complete breakdown of communication from upper management down to employee.

Teamwork

Most of the time a good crew gets put together where everyone knows what their job is and together accomplish the task at hand.

Freedom to work independently

Rarely do you have a choice on the workload. Alot of the time 2or3 peopleare sent where4or5 people are needed.

Internal Communication

Salesmen often make promises to the customer ie; "the guys will take care of it" That information is never passed down to the people doing the work.

Gender Equality

Women for the most part do the packing. Moving and loading household is done by only men.

Attitude towards older colleagues

That is something I can only answer for myself. I respect my elders regardless.

Career Development

As employees there are two positions, drivers and helpers. If a helper becomes a driver it is done on your own the only thing the company will do is let you use the truck for the test.

Overall compensation for your work

You don't receive enough money for the work you do. You get no benefits unless your a class A driver.

Office / Work Environment

All vehicles and equipment are outdated, some unsafe to use. Trucks should be red tagged! Vehicle inspection does not matter.

Environmental Friendliness

No

Work-Life Balance

I would work side by side with someone working 40+ hrs a week, yet was considered a part time employee until I got my C.D.L before that no benefits or vacations.

Company Image

Trucks and equipment outdated and unkept. Helpers are not dressed appropriately most of the time.

Job Security

Never

Handicapped Accessibility

Barely

Workplace Safety

There is no training you are thrown right into the mix. Sink or swim!

Challenging Work

Of course but that comes down to individual work ethic's

Inclusive / Diverse

Your opinion rarely matters

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better equipment show a little more appreciation towards your employees and offer some kind of plastic package to employees that are not Class A drivers make employees feel that they are not alone in accomplishing the goal

What I like about the company

It was a job when I needed one!
