I have been working at Con-way Freight

Pros

Fortune 500 company, but with the feel of a smaller company.

Cons

More veteran employees are afraid of change and tend to resort to "we've already tried that and it doesn't work here" mentality.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Foster forward momentum and forward thinking.

    Pros

    Used to be a an ok Place...christmas partys, cook-outs, employee appreciation, pension plan....all the is gone now

    Cons

    Still havent got our 401K and paycut back after two years, claim they not making enough money but found money to sponsor a NASCAR, purchase and implement 30,000 handheld computers and SAFESTACK trailers. If their pockets are not overflowing they not happy. Highest freight rates but lowest paid drivers. They blow so much smoke up ur butt and do something completly different. Employees are really getting fed up. Im gone as soon as I can find something better

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at FedEx and UPS...take some pointers

    Pros

    The only good thing about this job is the pay. Which is only good compared to the other few jobs in this small town.

    Cons

    Biggest problem is the way management runs the company. They believe in lying and bullying employees. Always threatning our jobs if we voice our opinion to them. The hours are so hard it makes con-way ur entire life sometimes. If you go above and beyond you are rarely to never noticed for it , but as soon as you make a mistake they know all about it and go after you with full steam ahead attitude. They keep taking away from benefits and pay and employee bonuses , but upgraded the race team they sponser. The company is clearly doing just fine in the economy but used the economy to take away all of the things that made con-way a good place to work. I have worked for con-way for three years and wish the company would go back to the way the veteran employees said it used to be. Conway needs to learn to give respect to get it!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire all the upper management. And then train new ones to be leaders that we need. Not bullys and liars like we have now.
