    Pros

    Single crew service is a signature for New World Van Lines. Their customer base can look forward to working with the same team of people, including the driver, from the beginning of their move to the end. This empowers the customer to build trusting relationships with people who will be handling their private and most important commodity......their family!

    Cons

    There are no cons. Building a relationship with people like Michael Marx in their Ohio location for me, was profound. New World Van Lines is made up of a team of people that includes family members founded by the father, Edward Marx, many years ago. The foundation that was built has served the people of Chicago and through the years has extended from coast to coast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to grow with the same principals as Edward Marx for the good of families and their future! Mike, I will always remember working together with you for all the days of my life. If there is ever an opening for me to work with you again, all you have to do is call and I will be there pronto!

    Pros

    They have a great starting salary & quick interview process. Some co-workers are friendly. Drivers are great to work with.

    Cons

    It's a very stressful environment to work. A lot of yelling & cursing between some co-workers, management & drivers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to treat your employees (office workers & drivers) better. My first meeting with the CEO was being yelled at! I listened to other management curse at drivers for questioning their assignments & were told they could quit if they didn't like! My boss would bring in his cocktails with him from his "liquid lunch" with no repercussion or help to address his obvious problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dear Mike Marx,
    You must be so full of yourself to write that outstanding, thought provoking review. However, to my dismay, I noticed some flaws. One of which is the biggest lie. We all know that the concept of "same crew service" is extremely flawed for various reason. The first and foremost reason is as follows; a straight truck crew loading a shipment on the East cost will not be delivering said shipment on the West coast. The shipment will get handled several times being transfered to a trailer that will undoubtedly be swapped out with several drivers before it gets to its destination. Why lie? The crews even tell the customer that they probably will not be the ones delivering. The lack of communication within New World is astonishing. Circus clowns have a better sense of what's going on. By the time information is passed through the office manager, dispatcher, move coordinator, owners two cents, and back to driver, it's a completely different entity. Keep telling yourself you rock in third person. Hopefully it keeps you feeling good about yourself. Cheers mate.

    Pros

    Family business moving up steadily. Excellent reputation for Quality service. Most drivers are employees, which is unusual & beneficial. Previously very good relationships with employees.

    Cons

    New regime in management is creating wide-spread dissatisfaction and an apparent loss of business. The environment has recently become very uncomfortable for long-term and valuable employees. The attitude seems to be that they are expendable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a few steps back. recognize that your greatest strength has always been that the company is a family, and employees a major asset.

    Pros

    I was able to get my cdl while employed there. gained a lot of experience dealing with different people . Pay was better than most moving companies ten years ago.

    Cons

    Owners and management over work there drivers and helpers , Pay has not kept up with cost of living , most helpers are not experienced so it stresses drivers. Benefits are a joke, hometime what hometime ,charges for motels, pay checks vary from week to week. the owners are very childish and hateful , i can go on an on you get the picture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up! Respect your employees . Pick up the percentage ! Train your helpers before they go out on a road trip.
