    Pros

    Daily operations are morally sound. People treat each other like family. Hard work is rewarded.

    Cons

    People treat each other too much like family often sacrificing efficiency and profitability. Unclear career path for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Leaders need to begin preparing new leadership for the next generation. In an industry that is reliant on an old school profession (truck driving) skills, expertise, and ideas need to be shared and passed along not selfishly held onto for personal protection.


  2. Be ready for something every day. You have to be willing to take ownership at any given time.

    Pros

    Flexibility is ridiculous in some departments--come and go as you please
    Great company values but are they really applied?

    Cons

    Lack of promotion
    Company DOES NOT value education
    No growth opportunity

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to change.
    Being with the company for more than 15 years in the same management capacity shows the lack of growth opportunity and the mundane nature of things.

  5. It has been said by many people inside including middle management, that Bennett somehow makes money in spite of itself.

    Pros

    Family culture is alive and well. they have liberal time off policies. if you got something to do concerning your family, they let you leave with very few questions ask. you want find a place where people care about each other more.

    Cons

    limited opportunities for advancement. they pick there favroites and promote their friends or other family members. people are scared to say anything against management cause they will get rid of you if you don't agree with them or say anything against them. they have good core values but everybody dont live by them, especially integrity. its not everybody, just a few that are that away.

    Advice to Management

    none cause they wouldnt lissen anyway. Ms Marcia is real nice but people around her lie to her all the time, even the people she trusts the most

    Pros

    A company that offers above average benefits to contract drivers. Ample advance pay on loads ,no bogus damage claims, very fast settlements on loads sometimes the same day!!!! Extra incentives for a good job. Very helpful headquarters staff.

    Occasional slow load availability Other work available

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the current contract driver incentives, recruiting bonus, DOT inspection bonus, Safety meeting incentives, safe driving bonuses, Driver internet forums.

    Pros

    small company, work ended when shift was over in most cases, work did not come home, local company in decent area, most of the staff are in the same boat of just making a living

    Cons

    nepotism, no clear company wide direction, privately owned so they make their own rules, too many conflicting orders from management on a regular basis, heavy internal politics

    Advice to Management

    diverge upper management from family members, set clear goals within the organization across all companies, reduce number of middle management

    Can't think of any downsides. except some of the so called higher up managers who have their own agenda and not care about the employees who do the work.

    Advice to Management

    Need to listen to employees more.
