    I worked at Landstar System full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The Training and Skills I got form my peers was pretty good. I met a lot of good people - colleagues and clients. It was good. The remarks are only relevant to the LJTSI agency

    Cons

    Everything else is horrible. I am struggling to find positive things about it. Everything there is sell, sell, sell. But then the equipment would fail (almost every week) and they expect you to use your cellphone to make sales calls.

    Advice to Management

    be honest, stop lying to people

    Pros

    This review is requesting that I place atleast 5 words for the Pros of this company. I opted out.

    Cons

    The rates for taking a load does not pay enough to break even. Very poor brokering and no room for negotiation. Put your time, money, and driver somewhere else

    Advice to Management

    Please come to the realization that owner operators are in business to make a profit; same as you. The rates are a complete insult to our industry. We are hardworking people. We are not looking to gouge the company, just trying to make a living.

    Pros

    Good benefits. If in right department most people stay forever.

    Cons

    No movement. 3rd party carrier departments are the WORST place to end up. especially in Rockford, IL office. STAY AWAY!

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to be more involved in the actual job instead of vacations and online shopping. Supervisors need to not micromanage.


  11. Nothing is up for negotiation, it's the boss's way or the highway.

    Pros

    If you get lucky, you can get some good customers that don't already use one of the thousands of Landstar agents which could result in decent $.

    Cons

    You do all the work for less than half the pay.

    Advice to Management

    Ha, like it would even be heard.
