    I worked at Hill Brothers Transportation as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Some of the best equipment on the road, liked the office staff in main building.

    Cons

    gave some people older equipment, had no one cleaning up their trucks after someone quit, shop was pretty messy and they only had 1 true mechanic, dispatch is chicago oriented(ever try to find a parting space) dispatch is soso

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to your drivers and have recuiters tell you the truth up front, let people know you may get stuck in a really crappy truck at first, lets face those internationals were junk and some drivers never cleaned them

    Pros

    Good people like the drivers and most of the office staff

    Cons

    I watched this company build cases against people so they could fire them. Watched them deny people employment because of hearsay information not cold hard facts. They will also deny people because of injury or if they know you had a workman's comp claim at one point. All in all they don't stand for anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to your employees instead of what you think is best, 9 times out of 10 they know better than you do.

    I worked at Hill Brothers Transportation full-time

    Pros

    Newer trucks, friendly people. Helpful at times.

    Cons

    Many old trailers, lots of sitting/ waiting without pay. Paid per Diem for a good part your wages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more office staff at nights. Better communication with drivers. Pay straight cent per mile not per Diem. Provide real health insurance.

  7.  

    No Training, No Recognition, Huge expectations for little to no pay

    Pros

    Always something going on, If your williing to stick your neck out and lose your job you can move up but if you fail like I said you can lose your job. If you learn on the go its a great place to hit the ground running.

    Cons

    Your expected to just learn by osmosis. Once your hired thats pretty much it there is no training program in order to learn your job, they lose all interest in you but yelling at you to do your job faster. The pressure is intense and everything is falling apart constantly. When you do a good job your manager wont care or give any accolades.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some interest in employess and actually train them. Pay them what they are worth and give them an actual health insurance that pays for something and doesnt' break them.

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, they will keep you busy, brand is recognized in the industry, new equipment, mental and physical health of employees is very important to company, growing, expanding, location of office is great, recruiters are very knowledgeable and tell it like it is. Honesty.

    Cons

    at times, direction is cloudy; communication needs to be improved, the leaders of the company tell it like it is (not a bad thing sometimes) workload can be sometimes stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen, discuss, value other opinions

    Pros

    At best, the company is centrally located in the city of Omaha so access is easy. And, their equipment is nicely colored in red and white.

    Cons

    If you define communicaiton as being berated through intolerable screaming, this place is for you. If you enjoy being dumped on with an impossibly daunting list of tasks because the company refuses to hire replacements for those smart enough to leave, this place is for you. If you will consider taking a reduction in pay upon your start, with the promise and anticipation of a "reasonable" increase that will never come, this place is for you. If you like to direction of the company being determined by Helen Keller, this place is for you. Let's see what CSA2010 makes of this place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make no mistake, you are as infallable as the rest of the employees. All departments need to get on the same page and upper management and owners need to keep a clear, confident and calm working environment.
