      Excellent benefits, good pay, friendly coworkers

      Good ole boy mentality, promotions or employment aren't necessarily based on skill but who you know or personal relationships. Charges department procedures weekly.

      Pros

      Great pay. Good employee relations. Nice staff.

      Cons

      Many of the vehicles are in disrepair, and should not be on the road. CDOT should investigate. Taped up steering wheels? Warning alerts on dash, some trucks have no AC. Routes that require dirt roads. No liftgates, when required. Sometimes, loads are not organized.

      Pros

      Good pay Good benefits Easy but high paced shifts

      Cons

      Upper management doesn’t communicate well. Employees are not held to policies and are not disciplined. Limited amount of management during shifts causes late schedules and rough communication. Bad equipment and outdated technology. Horrible work life balance.
