    I have been working at Interstate Distributor

    Pros

    Some of the best equipment on the road. They push hard for safety. They have safety and mileage bonuses. For the most part, work well with drivers.

    Cons

    But...for a company always instilling safety, they are constantly pushing tight runs on you. And as any driver will tell you, when you rush, mistakes will happen. Something you'll even hear through their safety conversations. And yet...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stand completely behind your safety goals.

    Pros

    My coworkers were the best part of being there. They are the ones that keep the company going forward.

    Cons

    Too many managers who put their careers ahead of their direct reports.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time and listen to the people doing the job. They are the front line that the customer sees and deals with. There are a lot of people with good ideas who get no support from their managers.

    I have been working at Interstate Distributor

    Pros

    They (leabon TN) have good decade run but unfortunately since they don't have good planning or people skills they will be losing account here soon, (customer has already mentioned told me)

    Cons

    Horrible people skills, poor management, they miss lead you on pay, they preach safety but tell you how to keep under 5mph to deliver your load 2 in morning during your 10hr break so they can get you dispatched again...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train dispatcher on people skills (you can catch more Flys with honey than vinegar) be up front about pay don't hide behind bonus, and quit hassling driver's about idle trucks if you want to save fuel, then put APU units on your trucks, how would you like me to come and turn your AC off at your house while your trying to sleep!!!!

    Pros

    Saltchuk and new management are on the right path. Working on building more support and better processes.

    Cons

    IT Systems are slow and outdated. Significant multi-tasking and often own or cover 1-2 desks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to enhance support and provide foundation for successful growth of business, accounts and staff.

    Former Employee - Midwest Regional Driver in Mount Juliet, TN

    I worked at Interstate Distributor full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Plenty of freight to Midwest/ scheduled to allow time to deliver for the most part. Shippers do a good job of having loads ready.

    Cons

    Not enough home time. Occasionally dispatch tends to put driver on back burner with no communication when the next pick-up will be scheduled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give drivers weekend home time as promised.

    Interstate WAS a great company. They took a downward spike, but are on their way back to greatness.

    Pros

    Very customer service focused, and cares about their employees. Work friendly environment, team atmosphere.

    Cons

    IDC does not promote from within. They also do not make the tough decisions until it may be too late.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate the talent level of the employees. Give respect to those who have dedicated their lives to the organization, but also look at the mid level jobs. You need more depth of quality personnel.
