I worked at Forward Air part-time (More than a year)

Pros

During peak season, october through december, you will get hours. The harder you work the better the hours.

Cons

Only team leads, and supervisors are hired as full time. No weekly schudle. The day you work you go home and recieve a phone call late at night about what time you will work the following day, if you work the following day. Supervisors will not open all the bay doors for ventilation on days when the tempeature reaches 100 degrees. You go to the bathroom and you need a card key to get back in the security gate but that card is not given to the dock workers. i was employed here for 1 year 9 months and was not given a pay raise.

Advice to Management

Give employees a weekly schedule. a card key to enter the security gate and full time hours.

    I have been working at Forward Air as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very nice people to work with, in the office and on the floor ( warehouse), nice supervisors, understanding, knowledgeable and very helpful

    Cons

    Unfortunately there's politics at the upper management level, and helped by a biased dispatcher ultimately lead to inequality among contractors, some were unfairly favored.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everybody fairly and don't keep biased employees around, not worth it.
