Pros

Good place to obtain entry level management experience. Regional Manager is very skilled and knowledgeable. Really not a lot of pros about working for Central.

Cons

Working 60 hours a week. Always hiring new drivers to replace drivers that couldn't take being screwed over anymore. No raises after 5 years with the company. When promoted don't expect much of any jump in an already below average competitive salary. One of the worst companies to work for.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay your employees what they deserve and maybe you will be able to keep them around.

    Pros

    There are some extraordinarily talented people working there who desire to take the company to a higher level. The take-home pay is just enough to keep you from ever leaving; a manager can make between 40-60k per year depending on position.

    Cons

    Base pay seems decent until you realize salaried employees are basically just low-wage hourly employees forced to give free overtime, and lots of it. Example- salaried workers absolutely must work a minimum of 50 hours per week and frequently more with or without notice. Their expense reimbursement system actually penalizes the employees. They deceptively charge or pass costs to employees in every sneaky way they can think of, such as creating elaborate vacation systems that ultimately screw the recipient. Their benefits are laughably bad--you can get better prices on health insurance by branching out on your own, and there is absolutely no loyalty to employees or customers, no matter how long they have survived there or how talented they are. If you make a wrong step politically (and it is all politics at CT), you will be let go swiftly, dramatically, and painfully.
