    Dispatchers try to make you run over your HOS

    Get rid of most of your dispatcher and start over

    I have been working at KLLM Transport Services full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people you work with are great and supportive, you get sick time and holiday from the start. KLLM is having growing pains since it bought FFE in November.

    Cons

    The management did not plan the merger of KLLM and FFE together very well, people were hired and thrown into jobs unprepared. People are feeling over worked and under paid, and like mangers don't care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to your employees we have some some valuable ideas, we have not had any input on the FFE merger. We feel and and are being treated like we were bought by FFE by there employees, we worry that the company we worked to rebuild is gojng to be ruined by FFE.

    great communication, they keep you busy

    Cons

    fresh express loads can be a real headache

    If the rest of the company was ran the way the Portage IN terminal was ran, it would be perfect! Get a clue Jackson and Atlanta!!!

    I have been working at KLLM Transport Services as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of freight. I had a great dispatcher. Some were not so lucky.

    Cons

    The load planners had no idea what they are doing half the time. At times I felt the load planners had never seen a map before. You almost are never preplanned.Very little dedicated freight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Preplan your loads. It would make a world of difference for your drivers.

    I worked at KLLM Transport Services full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Friendships are life long, holidays paid, team-work, terminal managers friendly, drivers friendly, good equipment,

    Cons

    Long hours, weekends, nights...There was a time when friendship was encouraged and you could walk into the owners office, not the case anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always remember a driver has a family that they sacrifice seeing on a nightly/weekly basis. They should always be treated, even by upper-management as more than a number.
