Great job, not long term.
Pre-Board Screening Officer (Current Employee), Edmonton International Airport.July 3, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: shift work
It has thus far been an amazing journey in this company. I sadly have decided to branch off into something I would more enjoy; sedimentary position.

The company has recently undergone new management revamping, and the direction that organization has taken isn't what I had initially liked about the job.

processing (Current Employee), garda paOctober 20, 2014
Pros: ok pay
Cons: no social life, they lie too much, make changes and it doesnt work, constantly chsnge work time think it would help but ut doesnt, lack of communication, lack of organization
I've been work st this place for about 2 and half years and I really dislike it here. Lack of communication on things they bs you all the time. They change people schedule thinking it will work with production but it doesn't work. They can't keep people and when we are short staff they work us to death.

No family life. They lie a lot. Most of them don't even know or follow DOT / state laws. Poor work conditions. Trucks break ALL the time. BTW overtime starts after 50 hours, not joking.

Really think about it!!!!!
Driver Messenger (Former Employee), CaliforniaSeptember 4, 2014
Cons: everybody from management to ceo
Do not stay, if you want to work there, really think about it. The hours are long, no family life, and they do lie to you. There is no morale which makes it difficult to give it 100%. The only way to move up is if you kiss a lot of butt.

X Crew Chief (Former Employee), Stratford,CTAugust 29, 2014
Pros: absolutely none
Cons: 2 many 2 list
This is the absolutely last place on the planet u want 2 work.
The depot managers pit all employees against each other, u r also under pd & over worked.
The trucks have NO heat in the winter & NO AC, not even working fans in the summer.
U have trucks where the xhaust fumes come in the truck, break down on a regular basics.
Trucks have been known 2 have – more... the entire wheel & hub come off the truck @ speeds of 60mph. This was witnessed twice & verifiable.
Truck rts make no sence @ all. U r out there until ur dun but r pulled in the office if u go over 40hrs. Employees refuse 2 stick 2gether & look out just 4 themselves there4 management always wins.
If my family was starving & living in the streets I would NOT take a job w/this co ever !!!!!!
Don't say u were NOT WARNED !!!!!! – less

coin loader/coin unloader (Current Employee), New York, NYAugust 26, 2014
Cons: lies
I work in the l.i.c branch and they treat us like slaves no a/c not even fans. They work us as if we were slaves.
They don't listen to us as individuals. They expect us to work practically for free the pay stinks and management is one sided literally. I recommend they get rid of the union cause they work with the company. .

Armed Security Officer (Current Employee), Fairfield, NJAugust 2, 2014
Pros: meet some good people
Cons: management is terrible!! don't like to pay what your worth
the Job is great!! Management is terrible!! the pay is not what you think it is. it's not a federal base job its privately owned. For a dangerous job its not worth risking your life for the rate of pay you receive.

Worst place in the world to work for
Check Imager (Former Employee), memphis tnJuly 16, 2014
Cons: too many to name
The company an whole is the worst. Management has no skills in training or helping others. The employees best interest in hand are not taken in consideration. Hr is a joke. They will not assist you nor will they come and see about the environment that you are working in if you have complaints. It is a poor excuse of a company.
