I worked at Con-way Freight (More than a year)RecommendsNeutral OutlookRecommendsNeutral Outlook
Great trucks and very consistent freight. I love my fleet manager and she takes care of me when I need it. I have never had an issue go unaddressed, sometimes it might takes some work though. Over all, this is a fantastic starter company... key work is "starter".
This company has become a starter company since was hired on. New employees are now given a nearly endless chance to not fail. I have trained six new hires, four have made it off me truck hired and two had issues that caused me to have them removed from the truck. One hit me with the trailer during a backing exercise(I should have been paying more attention but I was making sure he didn't hit another truck), and the other nearly ran another truck off the road. Both were given second and third chances.
Home time is bad. One day for each week out and you will have to fight to get home when you want to use them.
Advice to Management
Revamp your training program. You will become Swift if you don't.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Con-way Freight (Wichita, KS) in March 2015.
Phone interview and then face to face after a couple of weeks. The terminal manager went through a list of experience questions, "describe a time" type scenarios. It was a one on one, and the terminal manager wrote down all my answers.
