    I worked at Forward Air full-time

    Pros

    Pros of working there was the pay, hours, and teamwork. We all work hard together to get things done there.

    Cons

    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.

    Application

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

    Interview

    I knew the manager through a friend, and they told me the company was hiring, so I contacted the manager by email and phone to discuss the position. We set up an interview with the other managers and director. I was contacted a few days after that with a job offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked me what kind of coaching I received at my current job/what I most needed to improve on.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I gave some thought to the company policies at Forward Air which I did not know about until signing forms, such as the routine substance abuse testing, and no pay for preparatory work (i.e. clocking in 7 minutes early to prepare the workspace and computer and not being paid until the scheduled shift begins). While I am positive that Forward Air is a great company to work for as far as growth and mobility, I do find these things to represent an environment of micro-management on part of the corporation, as the policies show mistrust of the employees.
