    I have been working at Gordon Trucking full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've worked for Gordon now for 13 years as OTR Driver. I've been Trucking for 29 years and Gordon Trucking has treated me right from the beginning. It's why I've been here so long. Although we have merged with Heartland Express, the company hasn't changed yet.

    Cons

    The pay may not be as high as other job markets and pay raises are long overdue. They (Gordon) need to update their pay scale to reflect the cost of living

    I worked at Gordon Trucking full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You will have a job with insurance. Don't have a time limit to fix anything. Umm uniforms. Some training for the first two weeks your there.

    Cons

    Where do I start.... This Company is totally ANTI-UNION. Pontoon Shop 12 tried to become union for LOTS of reasons and the company threatened everyone's jobs, broke labor laws left and right, I agree with a LOT of reviews here.. they don't properly train their employees.. there will be Tech's that are NOT federally Allowed to work on brakes are allowed to work on the brakes. The Company Will change Tech's Comments on the computer, Another federal Violation (tampering with maintenance records). Upper Management takes Shop GM power and Micro Manage which causes all kinds of problems. You would think thy would allow managers to do the job they hired for. Once you get on someones list you are targeted to be terminated. They will make u what ever they can. one employee was accused of sexual harassment and when that didn't fly they accused him of drug use and refused to allow him to get tested.. they put him on 3 days paid suspension and only brought him back because he went and had his on test done. and the final one he fighting now is termination for no reason. Once he started to fight this they NOW say for false maintenance records. Management lies to employees. one day its this and the next its something else. NO RAISES. Underpaid Tech's. why work for $14 a hour being a Master ASE Cert.. NO Growth for Tech's at all..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being a Mr. Fix it and liying to everyone.. when you say something stick to it..

    I worked at Gordon Trucking full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Decent hours, friendly co-workers, regularly company catered/sponsored meals & events. Company gives a lot to charity causes.

    Cons

    Zero training once past the first two weeks of employment. I worked there for over two years and still did not fully understand the operating system I used to do my job. Micro-management to the nth degree. Impossible to work with a manager who literally looks over your shoulder every ten minutes because he didn't take the time to train you properly in the first place. Health Insurance benefits were outrageously priced & had a $700.00 annual deductible that needed to be met before they would cover ANYTHING. Interdepartmental communication is non-existent unless it's to criticize or lay blame. I found no opportunity to grow professionally, despite the assurance at time of hire that I would learn about the other facets of the industry beyond my actual position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Weed out the "leaders" who are there simply because they have put it more time with the company. Stop requiring a college degree for various positions when there is no education needed beyond basic PC & phone etiquette to successfully perform the job.

    It was an okay experience but senior leadership was too involved in the day to day work.

    Pros

    Friendly people, opportunities if you're willing to move however limited if you are at a terminal. The company is financially well managed so jobs are secure. Hard working drivers.

    Cons

    Limited growth opportunities for associates at terminals. Senior management would accept freight even though planners said they couldn't move it leaving CSRs holding the bag for failures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the people do their jobs as they were hired to do. Don't over commit to customers unless you have a preplanned solution. Expand beyond dry van freight.

    Pros

    Some people have been with the company a long time.

    Cons

    The people that have been with the company 10 plus year or more have never really had any other management jobs. They are promoted to management and just stay in the positions for so long. They do not have any continuing education for management on how to better manage people. Gordon still uses the model of being there a long means your will be management!! Managers/supervisors really do not know how to deal with issues from employees. In the customer service building there was a lady that I been there 10 plus years and had so many blow outs with others employees They still kept her, never fire her. Sent a terrible message to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more current training. Don't just keep people because they have been there for awhile. And dont allow your driver managers to talk so horrible to driver, no matter the reason! Learn how to take great employees and train them for next level, sooner than later. The training program is terrible!
