    I have been working at Con-way Freight

    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.

    I have been working at Con-way Freight full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    if your an owner or leasing its ok.

    Cons

    if your a company driver they dont run you enough to make much over 40k a year

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    40k a year isn't much when you have to eat out all the time, a 35k a year being at home you make more more savings just in food, not to mention have a life. 40k is not worth otr driveing

    Pros

    Good pay and good opportunities such as the driving school but they make you sign an agreement to work for them for 2yrs after the school is complete otherwise you owe them $7,000

    Cons

    The corporate side seems really uninvolved and don't really make realistic goals for the individual terminals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They could care about their employees a lil more and not play favorites

    I worked at Con-way Freight full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a very laid back environment and there wasn't any mirco managing. They did keep in touch with what the employees needed as far as personally.

    Cons

    The pay was not competitive at all. and benefits in comparison to other major companies I've worked for was the worst I have ever seen. There wasn't a training class to new employees. We did side by sides for 2 days and then were on our own. Even with experience you need to know more about what your expected to do as an employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a competitive pay rate and it shouldn't take a year for you to get dental and vision benefits. That's ridiculous. Have a training class for new employees.
