I have been working at ABF Freight System full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Top pay in the industry. Great no cost health care and a employer paid pension.

Cons

In the Dayton terminal, which operates 24 hrs a day, its difficult to get a weekend day off even if you work there 20 yrs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is more to life than a great paycheck. Find a way to give all your hourly employees at least one weekend day off a week.

    I worked at ABF Freight System full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    12 Hour Shifts 4-Days on and 4-Days off with average pay. Enjoyed working with the Union Employees.

    Cons

    Upper management did not have a clue about the proper way to handle Union Employees. Treated them as though they didn't have a brain. It was a Us (management) against them (Union employee) attitude. You can't work as a team when you have that kind of atmosphere. My definition of Team is working with the whole group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs team training on the proper way to work with Union Employees.

    Pros

    Good pay and the job is extremely easy. There is not much thought process to the job, just have to understand the systems they run.

    Cons

    Teamsters can be very insubordinate and you have no power to do much about it. There is also a lack of a team environment, where most supervisors only care about themselves. You work a minimum of 48 hours a week and be prepared to work nights, weekends and all holidays.
