Pros

Strong carrier in midst of challenging environment. Strong level of latitude for sales persons. Numerous resources. Upper management group is forward thinking with new ideas and processes. Open door policy with immediate manager.

Cons

Inconsistent. Not always able to penetrate against other more respected carriers. Limited on-the job training. Overwhelmingly dependent on 3PL contributions. Ability to negotiate at lower level sales positions virtually does not exist.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your people at the lower levels of employment. Remove barrier that exists between upper management, lower level management, and rank-and-file employees. Also, remove barrier between operations personnel and sales. Both need each other to survive, so it is critical that both communicate consistently and effectively.

    Pros

    Stable company with no debt. Company provided benefits along with 401K match. In comparison to other truck lines this company does not micro manage its employees.

    Cons

    Low pay scale. Limited upside potential. Poor response by corporate on problem resolution. Company employees are required to perform too many tasks with little or no training. Company seems to have poor vision of where it wants to go in the future. New services are added without adequate training while core services suffer from under performance. Limited input from employees on setting goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Handle complaints in a timely manner. Provide better training for lower level employees.

    Pros

    The company is family owned and run. They take great pride in offering a great service to their customers. The working envorinment is very friendly and the communication between employees is great. The company is growing everyday, so there is always something to do and work on.

    Cons

    The home office is a little old, so the AC cuts out from time to time. In addition, it's located in a part of town that floods from time to time. There is never enough Parking in either lot to allow for everyone in the company to driver to work and park a car.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job!
