Best place to work EVER!!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Old Dominion Freight full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat pay and benefits. Very friendly work enviroment. Great managers We are kept informed as to how our individual terminal is doing and also the company as a whole. Very family like enviroment. I like that even though it's a large company, it feels like a family run buisness.

ConsThe only con I have is the raise schedule. I don't like the "across the board" raises not merit/performance based.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone. Managers are great

Well worth the time invested.

Linehaul Driver (Current Employee)
Columbus, OH

I have been working at Old Dominion Freight full-time for more than 5 years

ProsExcellent pay, competitive benefits, great equipment, friendly atmosphere. The company also tries to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to technology to help improve both service to the customer and the employee's ability to do his/her job.

ConsNothing more than you would have in any work environment and certainly nothing on a company wide level. The only personal complaint I would have is the very low turn-over rate which makes moving up the seniority list kind of slow. But that's due to the aforementioned "Pros".

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

Best truckline to work for.

Operations Supervisor (Current Employee)

I have been working at Old Dominion Freight full-time for more than 5 years

ProsHave been very professional and care for employess.Good business model-making profits in a very hard economic market.

ConsCareer ladder non existent. No training for better job within the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed more info to employees for upcoming job openings- promote more from within first before going outside the company. Need to train your own people to fill these positions and make some type of syst em to follow to get there. To much insider only promotions.

Best place to work in the freight industry

Leadman (Former Employee)
Portland, OR

I worked at Old Dominion Freight full-time for more than a year

ProsFull time, great benefits, tons of perks, great equipment... I have worked at 6 other trucking companies and if you are a dock worker this is the best place to be.

ConsDo not pay overtime in Oregon till after 60 hours. You work a crazy schedule, rotating sundays (6 day work weeks)

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up.

Doing things O D.

P&D Driver At Old Dominion Freight Line (Current Employee)
Lansing, MI

I have been working at Old Dominion Freight full-time for less than a year

ProsAfter being in logistics/trucking for over twenty years, I can gladly say that working for this company ranks as the best, par none!

ConsSometimes the LTL aspects of their operations can be a bit much, but the job must be done.

Advice to Senior ManagementAlthough, personally, I have never been lied to, the truth gets the "beat around the bush" treatment sometimes. Be upfront about everything, and honest.

Line haul at Old Dominion

Line Haul Driver (Current Employee)

I have been working at Old Dominion Freight

ProsHigh wages(for area)good relationship with management,I can call most any senior managment and have my calls answered.One of the few freight companies that didn't cut salaries,401-k matches,or other benefits.

Conslike all freight outfit,most line driving jobs are night jobs until you reach a high level of seniority,takes 10 years of service to get three weeks of vacation,and 20 yrs to aquire four weeks of vacation.

Advice to Senior Managementhave the best freight job in my city,continue the personal touch,the anniversary and birthday cards make for a real family feel to an increasingly impersonal business.
