I worked at Southland Transportation part-time (Less than a year)
Great people, feel a sense of satisfaction, new equipment, lots of paid training, great safety mentality and they listen to the employees
Low pay (CBE’s fault not Southland) dealing with traffic in winter, no benefits for part time employment
