Pros

Most of the operating centers have On-Site PT, a restaurant (of some sort), Vending machines, shop services (depending on whether you've made an appointment or not 2-5 days in advance).

Cons

Company values. Division of Revenue (no dividend plan for employees based on excellent quarterly revenue), No APU Units, Maintenance is spotty in performance and timely execution of labor, upper management and associates in corporate office are concentrating more on the bottom line than the drivers, as it was the opposite several years ago. Expect to pay 100$ a week for a family of 3 when it comes to Insurance.

Advice to Management

Instead of spending money on the "Haul of Fame" or any other ridiculous additions to the corporate structure, maybe you would consider just awarding the drivers in a less 'immortal' sense. Invest in a maintenance structure that reflects the performance of Honda Service Quality or GM's service systems and outlines for execution of service. In addition, when it comes to the comfort of the driver, have a corporate representative try to sleep in a 65 degree truck with 80-100% humidity. Some drivers can't breathe when the humidity is high. I am one that has a mild issue, but not a big issue. APU units would greatly help the drivers be able to feel more like they're "At Home" and in return make the driver perform at an increased pace. Growth comes from quality, not quantity. This was something Schneider was based on years ago. DON'T issue NEW trucks to new drivers. I started in 2006 with a 2002, everyone else should do the same. If you're a driver with safety longevity, you should be entitled to newer equipment. Just sit down and look at it from the driver's perspective instead of from a dollar perspective.

    Pros

    They are very understanding especially with new drivers. they take into consideration the problems you report on the highways and so forth when they plan the loads for you.

    Cons

    not too much home time but that happens with just about any company but other than that I have no complaints about them

    A lot of talk from middle and upper managers but no action for frontline managers.

    Pros

    SNI had a good education reimbursement program for managers that have since been cut back. Working with the drivers as a team was great, working together to help them earn a good living and have a good life balance as far as a driver goes.

    Cons

    Middle Managers that constantly put out fires instead of preplanning or foreseeing the issues. Even when frontline Fleet Managers would ask questions or make suggestions they are pushed aside and bad things happen in the operation then. Communication in management is dismal at best especially in Texas Intermodal. Managers are promoted by how well they can agree with upper management, not by experience and foresight.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the Fleet Managers. The station managers are generally going to tell you what you want to hear. If you really care for the truth the Fleet Managers will tell you. Then again I'm not sure you wanted to hear the truth about inter office relations and neglect. Actually follow up on the "Core Values" you talk about. If someone utilizes the education reimbursement they probably want grow in the company, don't blockade that, use their knowledge.
