    I have been working at DPI Midwest full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good hours, pay and benefits,

    Cons

    NEVER ANY HELP!! As a sales rep you work by yourself, but with no help you cannot even call in sick, you have to work with your stores and tell them the load will not get thrown that day because of your illness

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so cheap, and hire some help in the field and in the office. Also, it wouldn't hurt to remind the people in the office what it is like to work in the field, there is one person in particular I could think of the Rocky Mountain district

    I worked at DPI Midwest full-time

    Pros

    CDL A class drivers have opportunity to make decent pay and receive okay benefits. You also have good co-drivers at this location with good work ethic and sense of team work at times of need. The equipment is really nice and fairly new.

    Cons

    There are absolutely NO company ethics nor values here. They will work your mind and body to the edge. They will have taken all family life / personal balance away from you and will not accommodate. You'll get the notion your set up to fail soon after being hired. Drug and alcohol abuse is evident.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have created a horrible work environment from your inexperience in transportation. You should focus on restoring company values. Focusing on the employees and their family/personal life balance should be important. Fact #1 : Happy employees create a healthy and productive work place.

    Good job. Good dedicated group of co workers with possibilities of a long term future in dedicated logistics, retail or food industry delivery.

    Unstable account future. Mismanagement. To many chiefs and not enough Indians"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your job correctly and follow through. Respect your front line (drivers) Without them you lose your account.

    I have been working at DPI Midwest full-time

    Pros

    Great people to work with, lots of opportunities to learn about the market place. Local management is friendly and easy to work both for and with.

    Cons

    Workers got moved around too much, so wrong people ended up in important positions. Company is going out of business due to poor upper-management decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think long-term, before other branches close too.
