I worked at Con-way Freight

Pros

good pay for drivers to start, trucks are fairly new, they are concerned with safety, lots of training there, they care.

Cons

all drivers start on the flex board and work their way up, most of the time is spent on the dock

Advice to ManagementAdvice

need to listen to the customers, we are delivering later every day, and they don't like it. listen to your drivers

    I have been working at Con-way Freight

    Pros

    Decent place to work over all, friendly and helpful co-workers. They keep you busy with some OT for most of the year. Home nightly and you can switch between nightly linehaul and city p+d once a year. You can also bid a start time once a year. Inexpensive benefits.

    Cons

    Flex board is not that fun. You really want to get a bid. During the winter, January at least, there is little work for the flex guys. They have to sign up for partial unemployment. If you have a bid, you will usually get your 8 hours, but that is about all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to lower our prices again to get back market share and keep everyone working and the company profitable. It worked for awhile, let's do it again. There is profit in volume if you do it correctly.
