    Pros

    There is not a lot to say in the PROS. The pay structure is complicated but you can make fairly good money.

    Cons

    Scheduling is poor. Truck maintenance is very poor. There is little to no respect towards drivers. They do not pay all of the vacation pay at the time of your vacation. They top up at the end of the year.

    Pros

    Making beer for a living is pretty cool
    The opportunities are almost unlimited if you are willing to put in the hours and relocate frequently

    Cons

    Highly competitive atmosphere - managers and departments are pitted against each other. Expectations are high and days are long.

    Advice to Management

    Work on engagement at the manager and technician level. There are many highly skilled people that do great work, but are kicked more often then they are thanked.
