    Lots of opportunities if you work hard; awesome people

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Green Bay, WI

    ProsThe company has tons of different types of roles and job opportunities. Sit-ins are encouraged to learn about other roles and move up within the company. Hard workers are noticed and promoted. The people are amazing and put their whole heart into their work

    ConsWith such a large company it's hard to know what's out there for other opportunities are out there or where to begin. While most people are awesome, some managers have been kept around due to longevity versus skill. Work/like balance can get out of hand if you don't set your own limits.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more visible! All the executives are in one wing versus spread throughout like with many employers.

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

    Good people

    Company Driver Inter-modal (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsChicago Intermodal Fleet. People are always willing to help. Pay is decent for a newer drive starting at $0.34 (+0.07 performance pay based on safety metrics). Weekly paychecks will be about 700-1000 for regional drivers who are just starting.

    ConsParking lot and Operating Center gravel lots are like land mine craters...drive slow. Much older trucks in this fleet...dented and banged up from years 2006- present of use and intermodal close quarters incidents. Newer truck coming in by end of summer 2013- they look like they do not have in-cab a/c which would mean that the truck will need to be idled in the summertime if a/c is needed while you sleep which can count against performance metrics.
    COMMUNICATE TROUGH THE QUALLCOMM MESSAGE FEATURE. It helps you as the driver have proof of what you are doing or need in writing. If calling into your leader first send a msg on th QUALLCOMM and follow up by phone (avg hold time is 15min)

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop laughing and talking to each other while I stand in the office with my cell phone on hold in your call que trying to see why it takes so long before someone answers the phone. I have done this each time I've come into the office to scan paperwork.

    Great place to get hands on experience with transporation

    Driver Business Leader (Current Employee)

    ProsHR is extremely fair and I have never felt cheated or that I have been treated unfairly.
    Leadership is grounded and understands challenges faced by drivers and office employees.

    ConsHours can be stressful to ensure proper driver support.
    OTM can be hard to learn and be time consuming for the learning curve
    High pressure environment for performance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest more in employee development and growth

    An great company that with great benifits

    Dedicated Driver (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    Pros-great miles
    -benifits
    -lots of driving postitions and options
    -work closely with dot to eliminate hassles

    Cons-they are cheap when it comes to equipment, always fix, never wanting to upgrade trucks
    -they stress safety a little too much, very strict when it comes to driving on every little aspect
    -sensors installed in truck to moniter everything gets annoying and sometime in-accurate

    Advice to Senior Managementupgrade trucks and stop stressing so much over safety, because sometimes the truck sensor goes off when it is not supposed too. it is not a perfect system
