I have been working at Bear Transportation

Pros

nice facility, updated software and phones, training, my manager is laid back, as long as you work hard and make money you won't have bosses breathing down your neck. Uncapped earning potential.

Cons

benefits aren't great, if you don't know about transportation-the industry is very cut throat and makes it hard to take vacation time, takes time to build business.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It seems like the DM's are always in meetings- it would be nice to share with everyone what decisions you guys are making for the company.

    Pros

    You can make a lot of money with this company. However, it's not for everyone. Be ready to make a minimal amount of money for a while but if you put in the work, you will get the results.

    Cons

    The benefits are horrible. The company morale is not great. Since the company has grown so much, they should do more for the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get feedback on department managers and meet with your employees to see where they are from a business standpoint. Let them know directly what is to be expected.

    I worked at Bear Transportation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    My teammates were some of the greatest to work with. If work got behind, there was always someone that could help you get caught up.

    Cons

    While my teammates were a joy to work with, management was a different issue. They were only concerned with the bottom line, not losing customers, and the consumption of alcohol.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication with your employees and contractors is paramount to good business. Customers, current and potential, can hear happy workers on the phone.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
