    Estes

    Terminal Manager (Current Employee)
    Auburn, WA

    ProsEstes has allowed me to set my sights on my goals and as long as I perform I have accomplished every one

    ConsNothing out of the ordinary. It is freight and a service industry. There will always be ups and downs because of it.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Estes has been one of the best companies that I have worked for in 23 years in the LTL industry.

    Truck Driver (Current Employee)

    ProsEstes is family oriented. I work long hours and rewarded for it. I am happy with this company and would recomment to anyone. Very nice equipment to drive and they are kept clean.

    ConsThere are not many downsides that I have seen within this company, except there is room for growth and we need to take advantage of it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt is all about working together as a team to make the company more successful in the day- to- day operations. Estes has the opportunity for growth and we must grow the company more to make this company one of the most successful companies in the LTL industry.

    Average company with average pay.

    Outbound Supervisor Second Shift (Current Employee)

    ProsPromotions are given to employees willing to work and learn new areas. The majority of employees are friendly and willing to help when asked. Benefits are good.

    ConsIf you are a hard worker, you will be worked harder and then expected to work harder than employees who just sit back on cruse control. The hours are not typical 9-5.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you do not know an answer don't pretend to know and spew out some rant that makes you sound more ridiculous, just ask. If you say you're going to do something, do it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Low pay and little room for advancement

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsManagement varied on the ground by location, each location largely autonomous. Decent benefits that started to dwindle as sales tanked...

    ConsCorporate management was secretive - employees were viewed as an expense to be minimized. Leadership drove things in the ground.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShould have had more interaction with employees, offered paths to advancement, and training / education opportunities for employees (and maybe not let the board erode their ability to manage the company).

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Unprofessional

    Human Resources (Current Employee)

    ProsFlexible
    There is nothing else that is a pro about this company. Its management continues to move in the same dirrection.

    ConsWork ethic
    Communication
    Employee Relation
    Advancement
    Pay
    This is company is not consistent. It makes rules and procedures on the fly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBecome more consistent and provide better benefits and pay. You are no longer competitive and we have a high retention rate because of this.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
