I have been working at New Penn Motor Express part-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

You don't need a whole lotta edumacation, or experience (lol). They will train you. Pay is better than the min wage. You can be late for work - every day if you like - with no recourse - you can call off - several times a month - with no recourse - which is good for people with young children. They proviide an anonymous hotline if you're being harassed or have a problem with mgmt or other workers. This is for office only . Drivers are to adhere to teamster rules and reg.

Cons

You can get passed over for full time whether you qualify for position or not. It is a male favored environment. Raises have been few and far between. Not based on performance. Everyone gets the same, whether you have earned it or not. If you have a problem and use hotline ph # to report problem, it falls on deaf ears and eventually select people will know who you are and who / what you complained about. Gossip travels fast. If you do move from pt to ft, you lose all vacation time previously earned and start as if you were a new hire . Benefits are available full time employees only, but not very good.

    Former Employee - Weights and Inspection Coordinator in Neville Island, PA
    Former Employee - Weights and Inspection Coordinator in Neville Island, PA

    I worked at New Penn Motor Express part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Inspecting freight was a great way to learn about the freight industry from the inside and also a great way to see the daily grind that a city and a road trucker face. The pay was good, the atmosphere was relaxed because the terminal is small, and interaction was professional with truckers and managers.

    Cons

    Company was bought by YRC in past years and was hurting because of that. No chance of a pay raise in any near future as a result. Management is relaxed and afraid to take hold of their positions. I found instruction slim to none from the managers and had to rely on calling other terminals for support and criticism.
