    I have been working at Land Air Express of New England full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been working for this company over 2 years now and truly enjoy my work. The pay is excellent and I feel a sense of camaraderie with my co-workers. My supervisors are wonderful and I do feel valued as an employee. Getting time off has never been a problem. If I have a concern, I know who to speak with and have never felt 'brushed aside'. Benefits are very competitive overall. Fairly high medical deductible, but employer contributes to the HSA account on a weekly basis. Plan includes 100% coverage for some preventative health screenings and doctor visits; which includes dental. Vision plan is excellent. Health coverage for major medical expenses is excellent. Positive working environment for the most part. Owner of the company and most senior management are approachable and take time to listen. The truck I'm driving is being well maintained and the maintenance crew up in Williston Vermont is awesome! Distribution of runs is fair and many drivers have, for the most part, dedicated runs. Employer has been adding new trucks, trailers, forklifts, and other equipment on a yearly basis and the company has been, and continues to grow steadily. For people with a strong work ethic, positive attitude and team approach, this is a great company to work for.

    Cons

    No paid sick time and paid vacation time should be prorated to make it fair for all employees. The company is expanding from smallish to midsize and is experiencing some 'growing pains', which is to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Operating procedures and policies need to be followed more uniformly and should be more strictly enforced by management to ensure smoother daily operation.

    I have been working at Land Air Express of New England full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Small company compared to the big name national LTL freight carriers so your not just a number. Good hours and good pay, low top end pay but getting overtime after 40 hrs makes up for it. Lots of company's don't do overtime.

    Cons

    Trucks and trailers are falling apart on a daily basis. Shop and management at the terminal do the best they can to keep them running but they are overwhelmed and don't have time to do quality repairs it's a (hurry up and get it back on the road)

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the fleet quit using temporary fixes.

    Pros

    The people you work with are good people. The pay is so so. You get overtime often. And they don't over react to situations that happen from time to time or mistakes

    Cons

    Company doesn't care much about you. Health insurance is terrible. They take 401k away from you whenever they want to. Pay is so so. If you work mornings pay sucks if you work nights your job is easier so it is ok. Also they do not fix there trucks to dot safety standards. If you like good running trucks dont work here.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your drivers more the know more then you think.

    Pros

    fellow co-workers are good people to work with. supervisor is fair and understanding

    Cons

    everything i was told about raises, promotions and compensation were all lies. president of company thinks he's better than everyone else. spent 3 weeks without toilet paper or hand soap. cut 401K matching and didn't tell anybody, not even payroll, took away uniforms and rags, cut everyone's hours. cut off from parts suppliers for non payment of bills. all this while 6 brand new tractors sit in the yard with grass growing around them, unable to afford the registration. but his kids have their beamers and he has his half million dollar camper. company does not care about it's employees. you are replaceable and they let you know it.

    Advice to Management

    pay employees what their worth, stop lying to employees and pay your bills. you'd be surprised what kind of work you can get from happy employees


  6. Great at first but the lies became apparent real quick

    I worked at Land Air Express of New England full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Location of terminal was very easily acessible. Some great people in regards to drivers office workers and mechanics

    Cons

    Dealing with ratty equipment,low pay,and subpar management

    Advice to Management

    Should put your egos aside and realize the drivers are the backbone of the company. Stop violating dot regulations , paying certain road drivers off the books and violating labor laws. All of these things put the company at risk which in turn risks how an employee feeds his family. I guess it's possible that u could be under investigation now
