Probably not the worst, but definitely not the best either.

Pros

The majority of deliveries are drop and hook/swapping of trailers. Live deliveries are all "no touch". Local work. (Deliveries out of Tracy, CA are to Home Depot stores throughout the central valley of California, the bay area, and Reno/Carson City, NV.) Home nightly.

Cons

In February, 2010, Estenson Logistics, LLC (ELC), switched from an hourly rate of pay with overtime after 8 hours, to a pay per mile system. The pay per mile system has flaws. For example, a delivery to Bakersfield takes 11 hours and you get paid for 450 miles. Two bay area deliveries may take the same amount of hours, yet you get paid for only 300 miles.

Advice to Management

Seek out driver input on decisions that affect them, especially decisions that have an adverse affect on driver compensation. Make a better effort to get drivers involved in the decision making process. Promote drivers, or at least give them the opportunity to grow with the company.

    I have been working at Estenson Logistics LLC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Because the company is smaller they listen to your ideas. Dash cams installed helps drivers defend themselves against crazies out on the road. Benefits changing in 2015 definitely a plus!! They have people net which is great. New equipment!

    Cons

    Need a bigger safety department. If you have questions it is difficult to get these questions answered. They use temps which I am not in favor of. Temps tend to destroy trucks, trailers, and product.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Get more people in your departments (IT, safety, HR, etc)


  2. Good until they went crazy with dash cameras
