    Pros

    Great company if you like no touch freight. Lots of drop and hooks, nice up to date trucks that get serviced regularly. Dispatch works hard to get you home when you really need it.

    Cons

    Trucks are slow and speed is governed down so sometimes on the open interstate it's boring watching everyone and anybody pass you up. Kind of redundant when the speed limit is 65 or 70 and you have 400 miles left to drive.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more drivers to convert over to non trucking jobs. They try to keep you driving because it's easier to hire another dispatcher than it is to find another good driver, but at some point every driver burns out. I have found it quite difficult to get a dispatch position after being here for 7 years and having a perfect driving record.

    Pros

    Very well compensated with regards to driver bonuses. Also, my management was quite good and overall inspiring.

    Cons

    It was a lot of monotony. We were required to make approx. 200 cold calls a day. Also, dealing with commission you had the good times and bad.

    Advice to Management

    I would tell the management to nurture their workers for long term employment and try to cut down on turnover.

    Pros

    Did not enjoy my time here at all

    Cons

    Lots of talk about work life balance but working 6 days a week, 10+ hrs a day doesn't leave much time for that. If your looking for career growth, start kissing you know what early. It's all about who you know and who you blow!

    Advice to Management

    Focus on retaining office employees as much as you do drivers.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, good insurance, occasionally good bonus, innovator in intermodal and dcs operations, tuition reimbursement, locker room and workout area

    Cons

    Dinky yearly raises, bonuses used in good years to keep raises low, but then used on other side when down year.... Well it's bonus, don't count on it, limited advancement, jobs don't pay til director level, poor training, long hours, lay offs and demotions in truck operations

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN to your long time employees! Question the status quo and don't frown on those that do. PAY your employees! NWA had one of highest year over year increase in salaries around 7%. Average at Hunt is usually a little under 3%. Tighten things up in regards to detention revenue. Pass that on to drivers. Stop allowing DCS operations to surge in spring and take OTR trailers. Upper management.... Try to be more caring and cordial to employees. They can tell when you're faking it. Swap ASM, OSM folks with FM and ops managers from time to time. Might get some new views and ideas.

    Pros

    Pay can be decent. It can be fun at times and there are bonus options. Insurance is pretty far.

    Cons

    Work long odd hours, eg: 7-5, 8-6, 6-4, 6-6. Lot of work life not much home. You do the task of two jobs. Upper Management communication is dicey.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more entry level managing. Cut back on the hours or up the pay.

    Relaxed, business casual environment, work is easy to learn, friendly middle/upper management, set schedule, no working once you leave the office, teamwork attitude, decent bonus structure. Cookouts/BBQs in the Summer.

    Advice to Management

    Make office employees feel as valuable as the drivers.
