    Pros

    Great trucks and very consistent freight. I love my fleet manager and she takes care of me when I need it. I have never had an issue go unaddressed, sometimes it might takes some work though. Over all, this is a fantastic starter company... key work is "starter".

    Cons

    This company has become a starter company since was hired on. New employees are now given a nearly endless chance to not fail. I have trained six new hires, four have made it off me truck hired and two had issues that caused me to have them removed from the truck. One hit me with the trailer during a backing exercise(I should have been paying more attention but I was making sure he didn't hit another truck), and the other nearly ran another truck off the road. Both were given second and third chances.
    Home time is bad. One day for each week out and you will have to fight to get home when you want to use them.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp your training program. You will become Swift if you don't.

    Pros

    health insurance is great and very inexpensive. starting pay is very descent. you have room to grow in this company.

    Cons

    the only thing negative i can say is that this company needs to work on teamwork a little more so it can be a perfect place.

    Advice to Management

    my advice would have to be to listen to problems and dont ignore them, so the good persons don't leave con-way and the wrong persons still stay there.

    Great work environment... It has its rough spots like all business but nothing sticks out so much to be an ongoing issue...

    Pros

    Continuous improvement in many areas. Good pay for our area and skill level required. Nicer trucks than other companies.

    Cons

    Long working hours for night shifts, not as bad for daytime workers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on the path you are going. Much improved place to work at than 3 or 4 years ago. Better overall than when I started.

    Pros

    Great money, great people, each day was different. Good benefits, challenging, great opportunities for advancement within the company. Opportunities abound.

    Cons

    There were many days where long hours were required. Also, weather sometimes created adverse working conditions. And occasionally, unreasonable time constraints were placed on the employees.
