    Pros

    Good pay once you are good full time.

    Cons

    Very hard to get recognized here. Unless you are loud and joke around a lot. The ones who spend the most time taking are the ones who get recognized first.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at all your employees, and encourage and thank everyone for the hard work. Don't make empty promises.

    Pros

    Very good equipment. Day to day job was good,always very busy and time went by very quickly. Now let's get to the cons.

    Cons

    Last ten years totally down hill. Management and benifit changes,not for the better. Micro managing to the point of being ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to basics. Get out of the way and let your very dedicated employees do there job.

    Pros

    Good pay that's about it now, but comparable to other trucking companies.

    Cons

    Very demanding with very little if any positive feedback, upper management does not practice what they preach. current upper management have destroyed what once was a great company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should look back at what made Conway Central Express the most desired trucking company to work for, far from what is is now. Sad they destroyed CCX reputation in my opinion.

    Pros

    It's income with average benefits.

    Cons

    Long hours on the dock, late start times, management are not the sharpest knives in the box. Starting out will be a test of wills, It's great for a non-experienced driver looking for a start, a veteran driver will be insulted by some of the acts management pulls. You could find better keep looking and always have plan "b" in your pocket. Terminal is 75+ years old and it has seen better days. No company match on 401k.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and get qualified people on board. Match 100% of 401k like the competition.

    Pros

    time-off policies , training that is all that i can think of or that is all that the company can offer

    Cons

    They have a employee turn over rate more then any other company ive worked for.
    The truck driving is a good area of the company to work for but dock working the time and effort you have to put into it is not worth it. They have such a big turn over rate for the dock workers that you are just another head to them they say safety 1st and were so-post to intervene when something is unsafe. But when you do they say "Don't worry about the other worker you cant do your job and worry about someone else being unsafe". Also its a no tobacco zone all most of the supervisors in the (west Chester) Ohio area use tobacco on the docks and in the office. so if you are trying to quit using this is not the place for you because i assure you that you will just need to deal with it.

    Advice to Management

    don't make it safety 1st if the higher management does follow the rules their selfs. Or get to know some one before making them a supervisor, I will be finding somewhere else to work and conway is not on my list in this life time

    THERE used to be some good things about this company.. 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...

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

    Cons

    Pros

    They big on safety they will right you up for anything.

    Cons

    New hire goes to bottom of flex borde that means that there will call you every day to tell u what time to start your gonna be on that for 3 to ? Depends on how many drivers ahead of you in seniority.

    Advice to Management

    Was a good company at one time need to focus on drivers. Benefit's gotten worse no sick days no pension
