    Current Employee

    Pros

    For me it was my break away from home. You also gain knowledge and to gain knowledge you gain success.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge is the time frame. Meaning the truck that drops off the papers that need to be delivered comes between the hours of 12am-2:30am and you have until 5:30am to deliver the papers. You work seven days a week no day off!
