But with Doug the digger and his pal Greg the robot.. taking everything from there employees to put more and more in there pockets it's turned to corporate greed... Vote union for a better life people these thugs are bullying u everyday and living large on your blood and sweat...

CON WAY C E O AND PRESIDENT THINK U SHOULD THINK ABOUT IT OR ASK A RETIRED DRIVER HOW WELL HIS HAS IT..

    Cons

    I worked at Con-way Freight full-time

    Pros

    in the beginning great people, most of them were lost when a new service center manager was brought in, loved the company and wanted to advance and stay that happened but didn't last

    Cons

    people in office are very inconsiderate of other people, they want to push their duties off on other people and get away with it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you can advance if you work for it but then you are not trained like you should be and held accountable for more than what you were trained in

    Pros

    I liked what I did just most people were backstabbers and lairs! Pay okay... But they can not keep drivers so they up the pay quickly and forget about the rest!

    Cons

    Too much to list! No support at terminals even HR was harassed!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Departments need to play nice! I would never tell anyone to work there!!!! They don't encourage friendships among co-workers... go figure keep to your self and you will have a job yes job that is all group of good ole boys!!

    Pros

    Many Locations compared to some other transportation companies which gives you more options on where to live other than typical urban centers, though most smaller locations are treated poorly.

    Cons

    Most of management talks to drivers like they are 2 inches tall and made of dog feces, they seem to think that federal hours of service laws aren't applicable if drivers need to make up for short comings of incompetent supervisors. In 2012 they decided to hack away A majority of the dedicated start times for the 2013 year leaving a majority of drivers as "flex" in which they expect you to start calling in at 6 or 7 am for a time they want you to come to work and that does not mean they won't decide to put you on a night shift completely out of the blue. What they claim to be core values like "Safety" and "Integrity" are only slogans, you have to fight with supervisors all the time to be legal and safe and "Integrity" is a joke, they will intentionally miss appointments because it doesn't fit with what they want to do that day and you're left holding the bag trying to politely make up some story to A residential delivery or warehouse as to why you've COMPLETELY missed your appointment. They require us to wear uniforms which they used to launder and mend for us, that's gone. Now you're stuck with low quality uniforms that wear out faster than they replace them and are VERY over-priced if you're to spend your own money on extras and it's up to you to find someone to mend them. As if all that wasn't enough they recently decided to introduce multiple pay scales in which certain service centers get paid more than others based on criteria that was completely pulled out of thin air. If you're looking for a driving job I do not recommend Con-Way Freight, they used to be great but they are in bad times now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop acting like nobody is ever going to leave and that experienced vs inexperienced employees can't make or break a company. Hot Market Pay scales? What a joke!!! Dumbest move in the history of management

    Pros

    Pay is VERY good, benefits were continuously reduced but better than most, company core values were solid...

    Cons

    You soon realize that regardless how much they pay you, it isn't enough! Company doesn't value the hard workers so the mediocre ones prevail, poor morale, high-stress job (company induced), underpaid management created disdain and disrespect with the core employees (the drivers)...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to the principles the company was founded upon. Treat the drivers with respect and you'll receive it in return.
