    I have been working at Air Contact Transport

    Pros

    Easy job, good coworkers, newer trucks, paperwork easy to learn

    Cons

    No bonuses, benefits aren't that good, high turnover rate, overtime pay doesn't start until you work 50 hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start giving out bonuses. Anything to help the high turnover rate. Benefits could be better too

  2. Crapbag company

    Pros

    A steady pay check
    Co-workers
    Newer trucks

    Cons

    Little to no REAL benefits
    Upper management
    50 hours strait time before overtime kicks in (which conveniently is when your route ends.)
    No communication in Home office.
    No employee loyalty.
    EXTREMELY high turnover (300% in Lexington alone)
    Drivers properly unequipped to do the job correctly.
    Terminal is run too short staffed.
    You only get a raise after a year if you have never messed up
    You have to wear black uniforms (at night)
    Company requires you to wear black pants/shorts and only provides 60 dollars worth reimbursement (after 90 days) to be used for a set of 5 (which wont cover but like 2 pairs.)
    Required to wear black shoe (again not provided)
    Required to be clean shaving (no customer interaction)
    Only a 3rd shift option
    Company will step over you for a customer.
    Obamacare insurance
    Low pay in accordance with other companies that do the same thing.
    Owner has a false sense of reality and will fight any union interference.
    Trucks are ridiculously stickered.
    Does not know proper DOT rules.
    Run the wrong trucks for the size of the job on some routes.
    Upper management has some views that would be considered illegal.

    I have been working at Air Contact Transport full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    My Terminal Manager is always involved and promotes a team concept environment along with preaching SAFETY AT ALL TIMES

    Cons

    The hours can be challenging, but you get used to it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps some adjustments in the time off policy to avoid "burnout" The culture is team oriented, with the concept on safety 1st. Good management in terms of listening and observational skills, fair treatment with the attitude to teach and motivate.

    Pros

    nothing but cons, WOULD NOT RECOMMEND

    Cons

    Horrible interview process. Was called in for interview, weeks later got a rejection letter for a completely different position I never interviewed for. Same day of rejection letter received call to come in for same job interview. Thinking I had been reconsidered for job, called to schedule interview only to be told after explaining I have already interviewed for this mind you was told this is for same job that she just told was filled. The employee kept switching her story as to what was actually going on. This was a very disrespectful process. Was told to many hands in the pot. After the back and fourth of if the position was open or not the reply was it is but it isn't. Wow is all I can say need to get organized. I will be following up with a letter to the ceo who I was suppose to have my original interview with. I also never experienced being told before on first interview good luck we have so many people to interview and was told a number of 60 something applicants, really who does that. Oh yea they never re interview for same position then why have you called several times. ACT get your ACT together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a new human resources employee

    I worked at Air Contact Transport full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Solid company, fair treatment of employees, safety conscious, yearly increases.

    Cons

    large turnover rate, a lot of "crisis" management, due to turnover many overtime hours, only paid overtime after 50 hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire more employees then you think you need, cross train various routes, allow more positive team building experiences. Have a back up plan in case of call-offs.
