    I have been working at Dayton Freight full-time (More than 8 years)


    The culture. The family atmosphere. The generosity from the owner. The equipment. The facilities. The great management. The benefits and pay.


    I have been here for 8 years and appreciate this company everyday. I talk with other drivers from other companies and boy am I glad to be a part of the Dayton team. I have no cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and don't change a thing. This is the type of company that everyone wants to work for and you are doing it rite.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Dayton Freight (Warren, MI).


    5 interviews at 3 different Dayton Freight locations, including driving 90 minutes and 60 minutes to other locations that were not the one I applied at for interviews with managers. Process went well though from interview to interview many of the questions were repetitive. In the end I was not offered a position, though after 5 interviews I at least expected a phone call or a personalized email. Only received a form email that "They reviewed my application and have decided not to continue with a hiring process".
