    Pleasant and challenging. Good benefits.

    Worker (Former Employee)
    Sioux Falls, SD

    ProsA fair wage can be earned with Old Dominion Freight with opportunity to advance your career in an open-door environment.

    ConsNo Cons for the company in general. Did not agree with certain perspectives and practices of management at the particular location I was employed, though the company as a whole is a great place to work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more open-minded and engaged with the employees. Hold regular meetings for review over general and specific matters allowing a deeper relationship and opportunity to exchange ideas, goals and growth for both the employee and management.

    A great family environment

    WAN Administrator (Current Employee)
    Thomasville, NC

    ProsClear guidance is given from the various levels of management which all work towards the same goals
    Free reign for creative solutions is given so that projects are able to absorb change more readily
    Close family type of team environments where colleagues and management are friendly
    Good communication from top down as well as laterally. It is a case where both hands know exactly what the other is doing and they work together to get it done.

    ConsWork from home option is available but discouraged
    Really though, there is not much bad to say about Old Dominion. They are a company on the rise, led by great people and staffed by knowledgeable personnel. I greatly enjoy working here.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pretty good company as long as you adhere to antiquated policies

    Developer (Former Employee)

    ProsWorked in IT. Majority of the employees are friendly and easy to have a conversation with. Allowed to work on a project autonomously.

    ConsArbitrary employee review. Good ol' boy values and policies are too antiquated for my taste. Don't like spending extra money for employee perks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLose the antiquated policies. Take more interest into what your employees are requesting.

    Good place to work.

    P&D Driver (Current Employee)
    Edwardsville, KS

    ProsGood equipment, good pay, good people. The managemant is easy to talk to and answers if you are willing to talk to them.

    ConsWhile there are some opportunities to move up in the company there seems to be a long way wait to get to that point. That tells me that people in upper management are happy where they are.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
