Great company but Teamster Union is a drag on revenue.

I have been working at Arkansas Best full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great company with a lot of very sharp people to work with. Generally everyone does a good job of putting the company first and politics second. Some departments are growing and so there is room for advancement.

Cons

Really the only downside to the company is the union that places ABF in a very difficult competitive position. It is a testament to the capabilities of management and the non-union employees that ABF has survived this long.

Advice to Management

Keep the employees informed of ongoing developments. Let them know the Vision.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great pay for the industry, great health and welfare coverage also. Financially stable company that focuses on growing slowly and steadily so not to over inflate the workforce.

    Cons

    Here in Portland the upper management is never at fault for anything. If you need time off for family matters it means nothing to them. Saving money seems to be the main goal and safety takes a second to that. Shifts are at all times of the day and night and 2 hours is all the time you have for advance notice for a shift. Set schedules come after you have been at the company for about 8 years.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your drivers. They work the job day in and day out and know what tools are really needed to complete the jobs given.
