    Pros

    Fast paced, unlimited hours and interesting people to work with. Great pay and benefits for the industry. Exponential growth for this company and ultimate job security for a run of the mill job.

    Cons

    The harder you work the more you do, and there is no pay incentive for working harder and more than coworkers. Management has a hard time listening and implementing great ideas from employees under them.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and implement.

    Pros

    Good pay, not micro managed, freedom and trust.

    Cons

    Long hours, usually overnights. Claims to be a family company, until you screw up once, then you're a step child and they disown you.

    Pros

    Great team, excellent product. I really enjoyed my time at OD. They are always striving to provide the absolute best service in the LTL space.

    Cons

    No company cons. My only con is the industry itself. All driven by price.

    Pros

    Pay was good and stock was great. Insurance was free for just one person. Bonus every quarter was a regular thing.

    Cons

    Outdated computer systems and dock equipment. Not enough training for employees all around. Long hours because they weren't fully staffed.

    Advice to Management

    Need to train your Supervisors better.

    Pros

    Mostly positive. ... good money not much waiting for linehaul dispatches. Most awesome very and I mean elite equipment.

    Cons

    They have their cliques.... vacation really sucks if they allow you to take it. You are forced or coerced to run extra after you've done your bid run. Cant make plans to do anything outside of work.

    Advice to Management

    Make vacation more appealing. Let extraboard do the "extra" work.

    Pros

    Good family atmosphere in large company. See a lot of development and modernization.

    Cons

    The pay, (unless you are a driver) is on the lower side in certain markets. It is made up from in quarterly and yearly bonuses that are based on the success of the company, which is always good.

    Advice to Management

    Spend a little less on so much renovation and technology, and spend a little more on the payroll to be relative for your workers to be compensated the same if they went and did the same job right up the road.
