    I have been working at Eagle Transport full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    New equipment. But you out all day in it, making very little.

    Cons

    Bad company to work for in its current state.only thing management cares about is gas in ground.period. if you not making any money, so be it. They'll even tell you to run a crappy load because of customer. And you will not be compensated for it.
    They are just bad and a lot of confusion with dispatch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually do something monetary for the drivers. If thongs don't change, and I doubt they will, it will continue to be a bad bad place.

    Satisfying - for the most part.

    I have been working at Eagle Transport

    Pros

    Better than average equipment, average pay, above average benefits. Average interest in drivers and office staff. Squeaky wheel will get the grease.

    Cons

    A paid by the load company, most runs pay below the competition as far as miles per rate goes. Getting any adjustments to that rate is slow going.

    Current Employee - Delivery Driver in Selma, NC

    I have been working at Eagle Transport full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Plenty of work
    Equipment
    Customer base
    Hard working people trying to make a living
    Home every day or night for at least 10 hours

    Cons

    Plenty of work not enough employees
    Home every day or night for at least 10 hours
    Changing schedule days off with out a notice or compassion of what going on in a person life
    This was actually said to an employee (It was your choice to have kids not mine)
    Pay rate well off the pace
    Upper Management out of touch
    Middle Management spreading rumors about money and raises to keep employees
    Destroying your home life do to lack of quality people to do the job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop telling people you our replaceable and then you cant find quality people to replace the people you let leave over money expecting the ones left behind to pick up your slack leaving them with less home time
    Stop lying about money
    Management should Stop saying a truck drivers are a dime a dozen (Guess if you're in Selma they ran out of dimes to hire quality drivers)
    Bring pay rate to cost of living for 2000 or better
    be nice if it was a least 2010 cost of living wages
    Stop dumping everything on the drivers and not compensating them in return
    Help dispatch by paying the right wages so they could have enough people to do the job
    Upper management could really listen to people instead of pretending to care about problems
    Middle management needs to get a clue on life

    I worked at Eagle Transport full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Made some life long friends.

    Cons

    This company is absolutely terrible to work for. The pay is measly considering the hours required to work and management does not consider the well being of their employees. If you are considering working for this company, run far and fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat women with respect and use employees for feedback on what's going on at the terminal level.

    I worked at Eagle Transport full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    your paycheck always cashes other then that a very stress place

    Cons

    upper management has no clue as to what goes on at the terminal level nor do they care. They succeed off the sweat of others with the only care is to get product in ground. safety, drivers well being, family life, mismanagement, ran like third world county does not matter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    try listening to your employee's not just your good old boys club. you might find out some interesting facts on how your terminals are ran and how you are lied to on a daily basis.

    I have been working at Eagle Transport full-time

    Pros

    Small company means you know most of the management. The company seems to be successful as a whole.

    Cons

    High turn over. Office personnel are not treated equal to the drivers they manage. Pay is poor compared to the drivers and other companies. The hardest workers seem to make the least in the office, as it should NOT be. The hardest working drivers make the most driving, as it should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat office employees with much more respect. Do not allow drivers to be so disrespectful. You will only keep good personnel if you treat and pay them accordingly. It will cost you less money treating and paying a good employee well, vs. consistantly retraining. Come up with a better universal training system.

    Pros

    They have decent pay and benefits. Lot's of owners family and friends working at the top. There seems to be a good 'o boys network going. If you play the game, you can move up the ladder. Overall, a good place to work.

    Cons

    If you aren't part of the "good 'o boy network, you can easily be on the outside looking in.
