I worked at Forward Air full-time
Pros of working there was the pay, hours, and teamwork. We all work hard together to get things done there.
The cons would have to be the early shifts, late nights, and long days. I would expect this from any job though.
Advice to Management
More organization and better attitudes would be my advice to the management.

- Declined OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Forward Air (Greeneville, TN) in May 2014.
