I worked at Con-way Freight

Pros

Good history and culture, managed well financially, decent consistent pay - no union

Cons

Th brutal exposure to weather extremes and hazardous chemicals made me unhealthy. I had to work very long shifts which compromised safety and as a manager I was never allowed to redeem a sick day. We lost valuable employees to a very strict attendance policy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It would have helped to have walls in my facility because the winter wind chill whipping across the dock was terrible and made me sick and I couldn't get a sick day.

    Pros

    Many of the jobs you can work from home and they have flex hours

    Cons

    If you are driven for success you will not be liked here. They thrive static process and you cannot shine or you will pay dearly for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your management teams before putting them into management rolls. Also learn to listen to your customer more than the complaints of other lesser employees.
