    Pros

    consistent work, home every night, weekends off ,holidays off, a scheduled route area , you make top pay in 1 year insurance is Ok no great..

    Cons

    they will work you to the breaking point. you will not get off early, you will work 10 to 12 hours pretty much everyday ,if your in the good ol boy network you may go home earlier. IF you never done LTL freight you start at very low pay here. they will try to have you driving the truck like its a race car to each stop to make deadlines, they stack freight on top of other freight which causes damages . you will spend most of the day waisting time calling in claims because they want to overload a 53 foot trailer everyday. you have to stay employed 1 year before you get a vacation which sux no sick time pay which sux, no match 401k profit sharing which sux you come to work early you may have to run extra freight out before you run you normal run, which will put you behind schedule. and you don't get any extra money for that,.no time in a half which sucks ,top pay is like 22 and some change in South Carolina . which is low compared to other LTL carriers in SC. DID I mention THEY WILL BREAK YOU!! you will be wore out by the end of the week , if you don't wanna work hard and break your body don't come here they will try to kill ya. its not worth it just to be home everyday.

    Advice to Management

    STOP over working your drivers IF IT CANT BE DONE IT CANT BE DONE!!!! were are only people there's always tomorrow.

    Pros

    Friendly people, Great tech team, When you find the right people who know how to do things keep their contact info.

    Cons

    Confusion about policies and procedures. Communication is lacking. No two offices are run the same. Hard to reach certain terminals and when you do people can be less than helpful.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your employees suggestions including your drivers. Stop worrying about what the company looks like from the outside looking in and focus on empowering your employees. The companies image will improve just from empowered and happy employees. Stop cutting corners.

    Pros

    This company accepts new CDL drivers.

    Cons

    Low pay, poor management relations. Work hard with low pay, $3 below the pay scale!

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better. Raise the pay scale. Lower the amount of hours for Hostlers.

    Pros

    none really,Long hours,push you to 70hr if they can,NO overtime pay. The Health Insurance as of 2014 was glorified obamacare.

    Cons

    Was a Decent Company,that cared about its employees during the Mack Dove days. Now in the 3rd generation Reid Dove days-they will cut 10 throats to save a Dollar. An LTL trucking company that Outsources its Line haul runs to Independent owner operators. I was a 19 year employee,terminated after i exhausted 12 weeks FMLA due to any injury.

    Pros

    Besides the benefits, none whatsoever

    Cons

    Low pay, no backup meaning you can't get sick or have an family emergency that causes you to miss work. Absolutely the worst job ever.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. Stop thinking just because you have a degree, you know to run an operation. Get out on the frontlines then try and run the operation.

    Pros

    Willing to work with your schedule if your part time.

    Cons

    Part time workers top out at $15. Been here 2yrs and full time workers are the only 1 getting raises. Makes u kinda feel left out.

    Advice to Management

    Look out for your part time workers. Make them feel appreciative.

    Pros

    Ummm...the pay is good, kinda. If your full time you get about 18-22$/hr.

    Cons

    The employees are super friendly...not. Pretty much everyone at company is trying to get over on someone else. Witnessed it many times. The management used to be decent, but in past 2-3yrs it has REALLY started going downhill. Management brushes you off most of time or ignores you. Company not very flexible with changing of shifts. Place has priorities in wrong place BIG time. New terminal, yay. How about some quality workers to get productivity back up, huh? On the dock, you have to work Sundays, which stinks big time. When they lay people off, they go by seniority, so they are stuck with same sorry workers. Also, NO OVERTIME. So dumb.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep employees for more than a few weeks (lol), treat them a little better. Doing a "Driver Appreciation Day" once a month is kinda a start, but too little too late. Rehire almost all of management (Terminal Manager too), as they are some of the most unhappy people that work there, and it shows. Company really needs to start taking employees gripes and concerns in account, instead of ignoring them. Also get rid of the CEO, Mack was much better than Reid is.
