I have been working at Roadrunner Transportation Systems full-time (more than an year)

Pros

- Opportunities for career growth
- aggressive acquisition strategy
- having a full line of transportation service at a competitive price
- constantly looking to improve efficencies
- Roadrunner is always looking for way to increase revenue
- great culture

Cons

RRTS has a very aggressive acquisition strategy. With that comes the challenge of creating synergies quickly and efficiently. As well with such rapid growth (acquisitions, software implementations, hiring) their are natural growing pains. In time they will work out. At the end of the day this is a good problem to have.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to pay for top level talent.

    I have been working at Roadrunner Transportation Systems full-time

    Pros

    There are opportunities for advancement, competitive pay, and a competitive benefits package. Roadrunner Transportation Systems has an incredibly flexible business model and the team work at the Corporate office is incredible.

    Cons

    The transportation industry can have it's ups and downs; it's an industry that can be very susceptible to economic swings. There are also a lot of unknown and uncontrollable variables in logistics and transportation, and I feel companies can be unfairly judged by customers or employees that have had bad experiences. I believe Roadrunner offers an incredible service and treats employees fairly, but should be asking more satisfied customers and employees to share their stories.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to support employees and their growth within the company to keep top-talent in the field.

    I have been working at Roadrunner Transportation Systems full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Corporate office has good proximity to downtown and the freeway system. The work hours can be flexible, depending upon who your boss is and the department you work for.

    Cons

    Plenty of money for promoting new directors and VPs, but nothing trickles down to the people who really keep the company afloat. HR here is a joke. The turnover rate is very high and they outsource jobs overseas and to cheaper companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review your salary and compare yourself to other transportation companies now that you have gone public!
