    I worked at Oak Harbor Freight Lines full-time

    Pros

    great benefits, pay is good if you have the opportunity to advance

    Cons

    long time employees do not want competition, be careful who you make friends with, other employees will stab you in the back

    Advice to Management

    be more open minded

    I have been working at Oak Harbor Freight Lines (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people are friendly and the salaries are decent.

    Cons

    Yearly reviews are not given to every employee. It is hard to advance up the structured pay tier without approaching management for a review.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees (full time and part time) the same.

    I have been working at Oak Harbor Freight Lines full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits. Overtime pay after 8 hours. Working with good coworkers. Home every night. A paycheck and benefits.

    Cons

    Equipment is horrible. Customer service reps are rude to customers. Human resources ignores complaints even with serious accusations of discrimination. Getting paid bi-monthly sucks.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your equipment and employees. If you hire terminal managers make sure they know what they're doing. Just because they have a degree doesn't mean the know the business! And change the pay periods to every two weeks because the current way is horrible.

    Pros

    none, none, none, none, none, none

    Cons

    two co-owners never there and don't care, lots of drama, upper management won't train you, and if you complain you get in trouble. Very unprofessional company and claiming they are a company with christian values is an insult to christians. pretty eye opening when all the local headhunter agencies ask what is going on at Oak Harbor we have people coming in for interviews by the truckload.

    Advice to Management

    try training your employees and helping when they ask for it instead of writing them up, quit allowing all the drama, and owners...try showing up to work once in awhile.

    Pros

    Decent pay.. But not enough for what you are expected to do

    Cons

    They hire as a part time. Then they quickly change their minds and expect you to work during the hours that you aren't even able to work. Most of the time I put in almost 12 hrs and that was with no break except lunch. Yea by law you are required to take additional breaks but then you get yelled at if the phones aren't being answered. This management is nuts. They want to take a failing office and make it produce better but they aren't willing to provide the personal for it. To top it all off they pay so badly to nonunion drivers that they can't get decent drivers. Half of our drivers couldn't even park their trailers to do pick ups or deliveries. This in turn made for very pissed off customers. Every time that we weren't able to deliver I was asked to lie to the customers, which just pissed them off more. Then I was told to transfer the pissed off customers to the manager and when I did they yelled and got pissed off too.... Don't work here unless you want to feel like a failure at your job!!!

    Advice to Management

    Take another look at how your business is run. It just seems like the business is just too big for its own good.

    Pros

    Some people there were very friendly and others would do and say things to get you in trouble with higher personnel.

    Cons

    To much laughing and messy around in the customer service department, ladies dressy unprofessional then or knows now.

    Advice to Management

    Please do not fire anyone that the supervisors do not like because they are the ones that work the hardest. Make sure you do not hire friends to work in the same facility because work lacks professional appearance.
