Pros

The upscale of this Company is they did have an orientation.

Cons

They do not pay you for your miles you drive. Operation in one of their slow trucks is worst than Swift and you really need to look at the abilities to get from pick up to delivery with this slow moving truck.
They will stab you in your back when you do a great job after you terminate.
You have to spend a lot of time sitting waiting to load and deliver another drivers freight due to the driver running out of hours trying to get a load that he sat all day on waiting.
Lies by dispatchers, and treated like you are in a human trafficking event and you are that person.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire most of your management and dispatchers, start over again or just shut down as you are better off not messing with other peoples lives then making bad DAC reports so they have problems being hired by another human trafficking company. Shame on you! Bad Company!

    Pros

    Very intimate work environment for a large company. Impressed with the management team.

    Cons

    Like everywhere else, there is less and less concern for employees and more concern for the bottom line. Great management team with good ideas, but team leaders and "mentors" responsible for training really have little experience with training. In their defense, they are expected to carry out their own normal responsibilities AND train new employees. They are spread very thin. It is a high pressure job which involves managing what are often times less than desirable employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement a "real" training program for new operations employees. Mentors and team leaders need "training" on training! Just because and employee is good at their job doesn't mean they have the skill set to train others.
