    Pros

    Greatwide is made up of some very dedicated, hard-working individuals. The work allows a lot of autonomy to "run your business" and with that a lot of responsibility! you will learn a ton working with these folks. Pay is very competitive, you just have to negotiate.

    Cons

    Work/Life Balance does not exist. It Transportation and its a skeleton crew, so you will get the calls in all hours of the night and weekends. and Operations "owns" safety so you will have a ton of Safety duties on top of your Operations work. Cutting out a chunk of time for vacations can be difficult to impossible. and if you go, dont think you are going without your company smartphone and laptop... because you will be!

    Advice to Management

    Try and remember that your field operatives need a break now and then and actually help them to get it. Otherwise, upper management is on the right path for the most part.... just dont forget the human aspect of your teams.

    Pros

    Plenty of freight, fuel surcharge combined with low on-site fuel cost. Excellent accessory pay for stops, back hauls and starting trip pay. Detailed trip reports and great settlement reporting for weekly payments.

    Cons

    Management / Dispatchers overwhelmed and will forget you if you are not diligent with keeping up with them and ensuring you can pull loads on the days you want to work. Must work at least one weekend day every week.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to driver preferences and note successful work habits, better planning and route management would help ensure 100% coverage with fewer fall-offs.

    Pros

    Most runs get you home daily. Everyone was nice. Terminals are very small so you get very familiar with all the office personnel. I had a good experience. I got out of the industry or I would still work for them. If you get in good with dispatchers you can get a sweet work schedule especially if you are willing to work nights.

    Cons

    Some of the backhauls were a pain. I didn't care for the Rio Grande Valley loads. I have no major complaints. I really enjoyed my time there.

    Advice to Management

    None. Good gig.

  10. Interesting company that has gone through numerous changes
