    Current Employee - Freight Operations Supervisor

    I have been working at Con-way Freight full-time

    Pros

    Pay is good
    Job security is pretty good
    Military friendly
    Great benefits including health, dental, vision, and a 401k.
    Focus on safety in the work place.

    Cons

    Long hours

    Poor shifts

    This company has little to no reward for the hard work you put in. And by reward, I mean the attitude towards employees. Management is not encouraging…they do not provide a team atmosphere like they make you think. Instead they create a consequence environment where it's about how bad you did, not how good you did some things and could improve on others.

    Ability to advance is limited for drivers and management. If you're management, you must be willing to relocate.

    I was also lied to when I was hired about the shifts I'd work and the pay raises I'd receive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a thorough review of your regional management. See if they're actually putting in their part….and producing this "change" in culture that Con-Way preaches. Provide encouragement to employees, not consequence.

    Current Contractor - Senior Project Manager in Portland, OR

    I have been working at Con-way Freight as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    HR provides behavior training to the employees that helps them improve their skills in integrity, transparency, ethics and communications. The office behavior is very considerate and respectful. This makes it a pleasant and happy environment to work in.

    Cons

    Needs maturity in demand management, resource balancing and vendor accountability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Each department should have a roadmap of the goals they want to achieve that is refreshed on a quarterly basis. The department leaders should meet quarterly to review the roadmaps and prioritize them based on capabilities and dependencies. Resource planning should follow this process.

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

    Pros

    Most of the techniques I use today I learned at Con-Way. Some of the best professional drivers I've ever worked with were there. When I get in a difficult dock, day etc, I fall back on my conway experience.

    Cons

    Sometimes feeling what we did was never enough. Too concerned about the union. Rather than just focusing on the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your guys know when they did a good job. A pat on the back really does matter. If guys are paid fair, treated as the professionals they are, and made to feel that the company is their home, then they could care less about any union or going anywhere else.
