    Pros

    Great pay for what you do
    People are nice to work with and help you when you are running around

    Cons

    The exhaust from the forklifts are definitely are a problem you come back with black boogers.
    Also stat sheet is very much against you

    Advice to Management

    To get respirators or something for dock employees to wear so they don't have to breath in exhaust and dust this would provide keeping their employees safe motto real

    Pros

    Its a great atmosphere with growth potential. It seems like if you have a degree then you can really move up the ladder. I like working for Con-way, and they allow you time to learn how to pull and hook doubles.

    Cons

    The only con is that when you are a new driver you are put on the "flex" board. This is where you "start" time is flexible. They call you in everyday when they need you. Thankfully for me my call time has only varied from 1 pm to 5 pm and then ill work 8 plus hours.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and continue to learn.

    Pros

    They invest in your development and support your career goals. I wouldn't be where I am at today without them taking a chance on me and supporting my growth.

    Cons

    Expect to work Long hours, and it's never an 8-5 shift.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    Pros

    Corporate benefits and training. Work hours were steady. Good relationships between employees. Good core values.

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement. I worked hard, was given many tasks and was praised for the work I did constantly, but was never given the opportunity to advance. The AE's constantly hounded you to deliver their promises for the customer's, but failed at following through with communication.

    Advice to Management

    Promote within.

    Pros

    Great job to do if you like being on a dock out side for hours on end but besides that pay is pretty good I would say

    Cons

    Some fos don't give you the time of day and when you ask a question they just tell you I don't know and that concerns me

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere to work in - Con-way does many things to show employee appreciation.

    Cons

    Con-way does not have any formal training program whatsoever. You will learn on the job - And will go through a long process of unanswered questions before you find the right answers for the work you are doing.

    Advice to Management

    There are some really good Managers at this facility... Some are better than others. I know most Managers are quite helpful to their team of people. My Manager is very friendly - However, she is, unfortunately, not professional. She rarely answers your questions for assistance yet she will waste her team's productive time by sharing stories about her personal life. She is a lovely woman - And would make a great neighbor - But she is not Manager material.

    Pros

    Great working atmosphere as well as excellent customer service experience. Hands on LTL experience was an amazing tool for me. This is what my passion is!

    Cons

    Not really any cons to share. Management was great. Training was excellent. Short handed in operations is the only negative I would have to say.

    Advice to Management

    Great management!
