    Pros

    Pay is good but some of the routes are very demanding.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges are functionality of the docks. Equipment shortages. A lot of difficult customers due to some bad experiences with other drivers/company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk with employees about what's needed/any problems every morning during an employee meeting.

    Pros

    The pay is not to bad for what you have to do even though it is some of the lowest for LTL freight.

    Cons

    Unless you are at a hub, the up keep on trl and tractor are not that great . It is hard to sometimes get parts or even oil for trucks. Just keep telling people that they will fix terminal, docks and doors broken and never fixed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the out dates metrics. It is bad for moral if every day the employee shows a loss. It might help with direct deposit instead of paper checks.

    Pros

    Some nice people work at the G.O. If you a hard worker but don't like being compensated for it, you'll love it!

    Cons

    Where to start!? Owner also owns sister company for health benefits, they are a joke and VERY costly to employee. Salary employees are required to work 45 hours a week, but your salary is based on only a 40 hour week. No OT for salary, work the bare minimum of 45 or less hours a week you'll quickly be placed under the "radar". No direct deposit, management has their favorites all others be on alert to get back stabbed. No loyalty to hard working employees, step on the wrong toes by questioning somethjng or offer an opinion to improve a process and look out, you'll soon be out the door. Poor pay, poor benefits all around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Knock yourself down a few pegs.

    Pros

    Vacations, when manager is absent, when your on night crew you dont have to see hardly any one so you can do your work.

    Cons

    Equipment should not be on the road. Doors are falling off the trailers. Manager is always trying to get you to run with the doors open or half shut. Most doors you have to strap closed. Manager will lie to you to get you to do anything. Manager is always tell stories to other employees about the pepole that come in to fill out applications.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you cant manage to clean up a hazardous spill and leave it there for a week leaking thats a failure on your part. You should re think being a manager and let someone come in and realy manage.
