    Former Employee - Customer Service Associate 
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Penske full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Penske as a whole is great. Company pay. Company benefits. Opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Entry level for Dearborn location is horrible. Petty write ups. No real training employees will be training you . Messy manager. Instead of having a coaching opportunity when you do wrong they will write you up. Show a lot of favoritism towards certain employees. You can wrote up for a mistake you made on a load and get wrote up, someone else can make the same mistake and won’t get wrote up. Some managers will email... other managers forcing them to write you up if it’s a error on a load. You can forget to clock in and a manager will mention you can will get wrote up yet clock another employee in when they forget.

    Advice to Management

    Entry level department can be a toxic environment... large turnover and they wonder why. If employees do good give them compliments and actually show that they are appreciated. If a employee do something wrong on a load consider it as a coaching activity considering other employees were their trainers. Actually want to see employees improve instead of writing them up for the most petty things. Stop showing... favoritism if it apply to one employee let it apply to all employees.
