  1. They should follow their suggestions… Having worked there under terrible conditions I can say they do not ascribe to their own “formula” for a “happy employee”. They are insensitive, non-supportive (at least at the regional level) management who mislead those hired into alluring benefits that they rescind. Promises are made such as stating that they would not send you further than a certain number of miles and then “putting it to you” that you have to travel way further at times… It’s a terrible company to work for…trust me.
