    Zero balance

    Best of the best in LTL and company culture. This is a family company and when you are hired you are treated as family.

    Branch Manager (Former Employee) Oklahoma City, OK

    ProsEveryone has a voice and your opinions are valued. They promote good people quickly and pay them well. This company not only has a family envirnment, but it's employee's are a second family. Benefits are second to none. Upper management not only knows your name, but your story as well.

    ConsLong hours, but very rewarding. Nothing you do for them is ever overlooked. No micro managing. They give you a job to do and trust you will get it done.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive more consideration to bringing back former employee's that have left the company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Roadkill

    Flunkie (Current Employee) Little Rock, AR

    ProsOK for Union Employees, but they are figuring out a way to get around them

    ConsABF is now kind of like road kill. The life of the LTL trucking will be sucked out to benefit Arcbest or whatever the h*ll they changed the name of the parent. New linehaul rules with 'purchased transportation', cartage rules, Panther for Time Keeper and a host of new ideas to take away from the core LTL. In the next 10 years, the LTL segment will only be a small piece of the pie. I am sure they are trying to figure out how to get the U Pack away from the current costs and structure

    Advice to Senior ManagementI know that you are trying to be the next CONsolidated FreightWAY and siphon off your business an assets to close down the union. ConWay set the model for that, didn't they??????????

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Account Manager

    Senior Account Manager (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsBroad base of service offerings. New equipment and maintenance efficient. Good insurance package for employees. Expense account & car allowance.

    ConsHierarchy interested in numbers vs people.
    This isn't a place to start your career. It nearly ruined mine. 60 hours per week required to complete management expectations.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork with employees to aid in their success. Training should be done by management not piers. Environment is hostile and cut throat Do your job or get out! No coaching in this arena. 'Next" mentality is not conducive to a healthy sales environment.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
