If you're willing to work, Great Place

Owner Operator (Former Employee)
Temple, TX

I worked at Greatwide Logistics as a contractor for more than a year

ProsMost 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.

ConsSome 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 Senior ManagementNone. Good gig.

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

Good pay and good home time, but no set runs/days off. Scratch their backs and they scratch yours.

Truck Driver (Current Employee)
Southaven, MS

I have been working at Greatwide Logistics

ProsDecent pay, most runs home same day. Layover runs back next day for our operation. Mostly new fleet of trucks, decently maintained. Many runs are little to no touch. Detention pay after two hours for store deliveries and backhauls. Stop pay plus mileage pay. Motels paid if you are in a daycab.

ConsNo bid process for runs. You don't know what you are doing the next day until dispatch calls. Many runs are driver assist, either by operating a pallet jack, or pushing while the customer operates pallet jack. Some runs are good, some are hardly worth the commute to the warehouse. Trucks are governed at 62-63 mph. Runs fluctuate when business slows, which is good if you want another day off, but bad if you want to run hard.

Advice to Senior ManagementSet runs, or days off for proven hard working, and safe drivers. Better communication about policy changes.

Greatwide changes management like I change underwear.....daily!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Greatwide Logistics

ProsSalary is excellent, peers are excellent

ConsWhen I would come to work I never knew who my manager would be. Upper management changes daily also. Layoffs and bankruptcies are out of control. You're bound to end up with a manger with less education and experience than you whose biggest concerns are the type of chairs and not moving freight or taking care of the customer and guess who takes the heat for their inabilities.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop moving people in and out of positions. We are not reinventing the wheel here we are moving freight. Treat your drivers and your dispatchers with respect. They are the ones saving your butts on a daily basis.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
