    Courier / Independant Contractor

    Indpendant Contractor Courier (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsIf you want to choose your own schedule and need to take time off for personal business this is a great position to hold. I was able to complete my college degree while working at Dynamex. No day is the same always something different to do.

    ConsNever know how much pay to expect for work done. Sometimes you would need to spend all day driving meaning 14 hours on the road in order to make a good day for yourself. Parking can be a hassle when in big cities exp. Chicago. Insurance is expensive and ware and tear on your own vehicle.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShow your drivers on the Dynamex mobile app expected pay for each job. So they can keep track of how much money they have made each pay period. Provide universal insurance to all drivers to cut down driver expenses.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Dead End

    Accounts Payable (Former Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsInsurance benefits were ok.

    ConsOverloaded with work with no overtime allowed. No time to take vacations. In fighting between branch managers and corporate. Low compensation for work expectations. No bonus to non-exempt workers at corporate and no compensation before acquisition by TransForce.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire more people and compensate for the work expected. Have realistic expectations and attainable goals for you employees. Give them bonus and wage increases they deserve.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I was lied to from the first meeting about what the work and compensation would be.

    Delivery Driver (Current Employee)
    Minneapolis, MN

    ProsThey have such low quality standards that even the most inept person would be able to live up to their requirements. They are so disorganized that a person looking to take advantage would have little trouble doing so.

    ConsFor those who take people at their word and have pride in their work, this is an impossible environment in which to be successful. There is no communication between the administration, so when a driver is given instructions, they will most likely be given conflicting instructions by at least three others, all of whom will claim that the others don't know what they're talking about, and the speaker is the only one who should be listened to. Additionally, since they just want bodies on the job, they will flat out lie to you about what you will be doing and how much you will be paid until you are deeply invested in both time and money.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThin out levels of management, and replace them with account representatives who handle all of the details of specific accounts. Then, hold those representatives accountable based of reviews of issues by those actually doing the work.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Worst company to work for!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsGreat staff members, Friday lunch outings with the team

    ConsLack of management skills, micro-manage, unapproachable. I feel like I am walking on egg shells everyday.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake into consideration why there is such a high employee turnover in the GL department. Employees are the human capital and they contribute to the value of the company. And be supportive of your staff in case they have a doubt/question.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Dont even think about it

    Underpaid Dispatcher (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat people to work with. Some were here forever - but they are gone now.

    ConsWe were purchased by a Canadian company that did not want the portion of our business in the US. In the last 3 or 4 years I think we must have had 4 or 5 presidents that did nothing but cut jobs and pay. My benefits are 850 a month. Our ops team is overworked and the drivers won't come to work here because they cut there pay. TERRIBLE place to work unless you like low income no direction and better than 50% chance you will walk in one day to find your boss gone or even worse your job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFigure out what business we are in and let the rest of us know when you do.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
