Pros

Insurance is fairly good although premiums are higher than average

Cons

No clearly defined job expectations or direction. Does not promote from within. No communication between management and employees about ways to improve operations. Your work is your life - in operations you are expected to be on call and available 24hrs a day all 5 days of your work week. Being on-call on a rotating basis means your 2 days off a week you are not on call.

Advice to Management

Be honest with your employees up front. Think about what is a reasonable work schedule and what is unreasonable. If you still expect employees to live their job - pay them for it. Company as a whole needs to move into the 21st century.

    Health insurance plan needs help

    Advice to Management

    KEEP your attitude towards the people who work for you positive. Don't make the same mistakes other big companies have.

    Pros

    Fair pay(for a fair days work -do your job everyday!)
    Good Insurance Program (Best I have had in years.)
    Drivers & Management know their responsibilities.
    Corporate folks are eager to help.
    Owners appreciate their employees.

    Cons

    Hours are long but look this is trucking - either you can handle it or you cant! I have done this for over 40 years & not complaining. Having a few gray hairs means I have seen people come & go! If you want a 9 to 5 job, trucking is not where you need to be either as a driver or supervisor.

    Advice to Management

    None
