I had a very good immediate manager; the company as a whole was very disorganized.

I worked at Velocity Express

Pros

I had a great immediate manager who tried her best to create a working environment that was enjoyable, with a good work/life balance. This person took most of the brunt for the disorganization of the company.

Cons

Technologically, the company is behind on their abilities to track. The independent contractors are paid very little, thus creating a very high turnover. Many of the managers treated the contractors poorly; and the contractors don't know meaning of being a contractor.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Revamp the independent contractor program, get better executive leadership, provide better customer service, and improce your technology for your logistics.

    I worked at Velocity Express

    Pros

    When I was an employee, the benefits offered were good. There was a balance between work and family life.

    Cons

    Lower level employees were poorly paid. Opportunities for advancement depended on who you knew. Upper management did not treat the lower level employees with respect. At one point it was a very stressful environment to work in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat all of your employees with respect and open the lines of communication between management and employees. Promote based on qualifications not connections.
