    Pros

    Company's overall culture is good. Work is fast paced, so I never find myself looking at the clock. We have fun and work hard.

    Cons

    Poor benefits offered. 401K match is sub par, they could easily double what the currently offer. There are a few people with big egos that need to go or at least taken down a notch. Top management needs to be more forthcoming.

    Advice to Management

    ATS needs more communication from top management down. Not everything needs to be so close to the vest.

    Pros

    Friendly corporate employees. Nice brand new tractors. Beautiful granite corporate building.

    Cons

    Stress to make lease payment. Not being able to choose loads from other load boards. Dishonesty in passing on defective tractors for first year lease drivers.

    Advice to Management

    Promote true integrity. Stop the scam of passing on defective trucks for first year lease drivers. Raise the percentage of pay in the lease. Please be fair and stop the passive deception of taking hard earned money from dedicated drivers.

    Pros

    None but because I have to they use rental cars for the suckers they get in there.

    Cons

    No pay ! Charged me to repair there equipment and make there payroll with nothing left for the driver.
    Sent us ( my wife and I ) home broke and homeless !
    It seems to be a scam that alot of these companies are doing now days. ie, western express and crst malone.
    The culmination of which left me losing my home, car and having issues with my children directly as a result of no pay !

    Advice to Management

    Pay your drivers the correct amount !

    Co. has great potential, but is run by a lot of young, unprofessional people that lack integrity, drive and imagination.

    Pros

    Still have some decent paying loads and decent power equipment. Payroll has been fairly accurate.

    Cons

    1. Trailers are in poor condition. Shops at all terminals are undermanned and under equipped. Getting repairs can be slow if they can even do the work.

    Advice to Management

    Have a limit for how many days fleet managers can call off. Have all management understand that if a driver calls them with a concern that the driver should get a response back from that manager, not the fleet manager.

    Pros

    Everyone is nice and helpful.
    A lot of divisions that have different needs so there is room to do new things.
    Lunch has a vendors that come in each week with some good $3/$5 meal options.

    Cons

    Tech stack is limited, not very advanced and probably isn't going to change much.
    Relatively low paying.
    No defined development methodology (eg. agile, waterfall).

    Pros

    Specialized Hauling takes someone with some common sence as the responsibility to properly secure loads was always changing as the freight is uncommon or i should say specialized in a manner that takes thinking to ensure the freight arrives at the destination in good shape.

    Cons

    like any other truck driving job, being away from home for extended periods really stinks, but that is what it takes to suceede in the trucking industry.

    Advice to Management

    in the 9 1/2 years there i never had a conversation with Rollie, how ever i did meet his father the first time i was hired in 94 unknown to me at the time as i was in the shop and this guy in bib overhauls came over to me and struck up a conversation, as i thought it was another truck driver, come to find out at a later date it was Harold. seniority there does not mean much but i would recommend some sort of seniority awards as some of the drivers feel unappreciated for their hard work and sacrifices.

    Pros

    Supportive culture, great career path, great pay, a hidden gem in the midwest and the transportation industry. Very rewarding work.

    Cons

    Hard work is rewarded at this company, if that means that you stay after to get the work done that's what it will take.
