    Pros

    There are a few good employees that make working there enjoyable.

    Cons

    When starting, you basically train yourself. There is an environment of heavy favoritism that is not based on skills or work ethic.

    Advice to Management

    The easiest thing to do is probably wrong, make an effort to improve at all levels of the business.

    Pros

    There were some great people there who were always willing to help. They were very understanding of your family life, and you could take off when needed.

    Cons

    Not much room to advance and have a thriving career. Training was not thorough. There was a lack of workload and often, most of the day was spent staring at the computer with nothing to do.

    Advice to Management

    Upon hiring someone, make sure there is actual work for them to do. Spend more time training and cultivating that individual for their position.

    Pros

    It's a Pay check. Holiday party.

    Cons

    The managing is run very poorly and unprofessionally. They have no idea what anyone does in the company, if you need help or have concerns then good luck you won't get any. They have no respect for their employees, do not keep employees information private and thrieve off of making you feel uncomfortable and miserable.

    Advice to Management

    Take some actual managing courses. Learn how to respect your employees. You want to know why people keep quitting? Take a look at your self and how you treat people. Stop talking down to them!

    Pros

    Working with the many and varied customers, and many and varied carriers. Satisfaction in solving difficult problems for companies and customers

    Cons

    Management was fair for the most part, but then they brought in a manager who was wholly unqualified and who got the position ty nepotism. I guess it really does pay to marry the Boss's daughter.

    Pros

    Fellow employees are hard working and always eager to help.

    Cons

    No one in upper management to go to for assistance in day to day operations. Sink or swim environment. Employees not valued and are expected to bend over backwards.

    Advice to Management

    Consider taking management courses and learn employees day to day operations so you can part of their team. Learn how to value your current employees. Owner should visit NJ operations office and make drastic changes for the benefit of the company.

    Pros

    If I had the option, I wouldn't give this company ANY stars. Trade your pride and dignity for a paycheck.

    Cons

    Poor Pay. No Bonuses. No Raises. Immature, childish management, who pick fights with employees. Building is molded with ceiling tiles falling down. Dirty office and bathrooms. One bathroom to every 15 employees. Lack of office supplies (you may need to bring your own - they don't even supply pens). Vacation days given will need to be used towards snow days because the office doesn't ever close.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up. Act your age. Recognize and compensate good employees. Watch how you speak to people, employees shouldn't be abused and spoken down to. Try promoting from outside the company rather than family members who will take advantage.

    Pros

    It was a paycheck. Met some great co-workers. Job security because they have trouble holding onto people.

    Cons

    1% pay raise every two years regardless of your performance. Uninspired, unhealthy work environment. Stress level very high for the positions offered. No room for advancement leading to high turnover rate and constantly training new employees. Lack of professionalism in management.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be more people friendly and find some positive in the work employees do for you. Get to know exactly what your employees go through on a daily basis.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance and decent hours. Opportunities to pick up overtime on weekends.
    Learn a lot about dispatching.

    Cons

    Extremely low pay. No room for career advancement. Low office morale. Did I mention extremely low pay and no room for advancement?

    Advice to Management

    Provide more positive feedback to employees instead of only talking to them when you have a complaint. You'd be surprised how far that will go for morale.
