Pros

Above average pay, Terminal to Terminal runs, No down time getting loaded or unloaded, put you up in a hotel for DOT break.

Cons

As a extra-board driver,no set schedule on-call 24-7, with only a 2 hour show-up time. long runs 11hours driving,uncomfortable old trucks,most management lack of respect for drivers or dock-workers, or they just don't care.

    Pros

    Good pay, and good benefits

    Cons

    Supervisors are yes men, throw you under the bus when they want to save their own neck, they have no respect for those that actually do the work. The managers who come in and have no idea of how a big shop runs think of it only in terms of what it looks like on paper. They need to crack a tool box. Too much envy going on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Big management needs to listen to their employees and not stick their heads in the sand like Rupert M. This too could be you.

    Pros

    Family company. Nice co-workers. Owner is very pleasant and personable.

    Cons

    Limited Advancement. Seems like some departments in corporate office do not communicate with other departments in the corporate office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish the corporate office would listen to the people in the terminals more. Things are sometimes duplicated by different departments wasting the company money. Offer employees incentive contest to come up with creative ways to save the company time and money. Most employees want to help, but are not given opportunity for input.
