    I have been working at Con-way Freight

    Pros

    The pay is good, the co workers are very friendly and are willing to help new recruits with anything, and the equipment is top notch!

    Cons

    The only thing that is bad is that if you are a new driver, you will be on the bottom of the seniority list for years. Which means, you will not have a schedule and you might work the dock, do pick up and deliveries, linehaul, or hostle (moving trailers in the yard). You never know what your going to do... for years!!! You will be on extra board.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.

    Pay. Other drivers. Decent benfits

    Cons

    Terrible leadership. No excuses driver is always at fault.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your employees. I understand ridding those that need it but do not treat all the same. This the management is horrible and unions WILL move in easily.

    Pros

    Most drivers are good hard working people I enjoyed working with. Quality corporate training given to all new supervisors in Ann Arbor. Did not have to work weekends

    Cons

    Unreasonable expectations with available resources. Managers were extremely unprofessional. The hours were terrible. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice, you can't tell these guys anything.

    Pros

    Decent pay for driving a fork lift. They work with hours and let you take off if need be.

    Cons

    There is no set in stone schedule for dock workers at my terminal. We either call in to find out our hours or they tell us the day before.
