    I have been working at Forward Air as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very nice people to work with, in the office and on the floor ( warehouse), nice supervisors, understanding, knowledgeable and very helpful

    Cons

    Unfortunately there's politics at the upper management level, and helped by a biased dispatcher ultimately lead to inequality among contractors, some were unfairly favored.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everybody fairly and don't keep biased employees around, not worth it.
