    Pros

    Great pay, benefits, and decent hours. Home in the evening and on weekends.

    Pros

    Great benefits, nice pay. And now the rest of this is just filler to get to the minimum amount of words needed.

    Cons

    Schedule can be brutal until you either make it off the FAC or into a dispatch position somewhere in a nice location. Avoid Texas and the unions.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    Pros

    Fast-paced, challenging environment that has many opportunities for promotion if you are willing to relocate. Safety and family centred culture that strives for high employee engagement.

    Cons

    Company is playing catch up with the other LTL carriers right now. 50 hour work weeks are expected for management.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on Lean and SWI's... they make a difference if everyone can buy-in
