I worked at Celadon Trucking Services full-time for more than a year

Pros

Work ethic, Family first, Concerned about the family life.

Cons

Communications. The upper office seem to not care about the lower offices. They just do what they think will work to say a dollar where in the real world of Transportatiopn it is making like harder for the driver. The upper office puts themselfs on a petistal where they need to put their drivers and driver managers on a pedistal ...they are the ones taking care of the drivers. Driver are the once that make it possible for them to have a trucking company. Dont lose sight of the real people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate with every one . the ones on the bottom of the latter are the ones holding the latter up,

    Pros

    Great coworkers on the floor.

    Cons

    Upper management is a tight circle of friends, can't question them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit hiring friends, family, and yes men. The people making decisions only have financial backgrounds, and have no true idea what happens on the floor. Quit reading reports, charts, and bottom line numbers and talk to people about what could improve things.

    Pros

    They offer good opportunities for employees to engage in community activities. They have many very intelligent people working there even though only some of them are recognized and promoted appropriately.

    Cons

    Expansion is too rapid with not enough consideration of the potential consequences. Cart before the horse should be their slogan. They make decisions at the upper level then react to the impact it has on the business after they're already committed. Management style is too hierarchical, top-down. There seems to be a lot of nepotism and fraternalism going on. Not much chance of advancing or being meaningfully involved unless you're related to or went to school with the "right" people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down and look at what you're doing, especially with acquisitions. Treat all of your employees - not just your drivers, relatives and fraternity brothers - as your most valuable assets. It would help to have more direct interaction and communication from senior management with the people who are getting the work done. Think about your management style. It's very 1980s. There are much better ways to manage teams with a flatter organizational structure. You will not retain your youthful workforce for the long-term with your current approach.
