    Pros

    Pay is awesome, benefits are decent. If you need something, they get it done for you

    Cons

    Management...nepitism. Not a lot of room for growth. Nothing very bad, just your normal corporate politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Level the playing field, don't favor some and not others

    I have been working at Old Dominion Freight full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Very friendly work enviroment. Great managers We are kept informed as to how our individual terminal is doing and also the company as a whole. Very family like enviroment. I like that even though it's a large company, it feels like a family run buisness.

    Cons

    The only con I have is the raise schedule. I don't like the "across the board" raises not merit/performance based.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. Managers are great

    I have been working at Old Dominion Freight full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent pay, competitive benefits, great equipment, friendly atmosphere. The company also tries to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to technology to help improve both service to the customer and the employee's ability to do his/her job.

    Cons

    Nothing more than you would have in any work environment and certainly nothing on a company wide level. The only personal complaint I would have is the very low turn-over rate which makes moving up the seniority list kind of slow. But that's due to the aforementioned "Pros".

    I have been working at Old Dominion Freight full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Have been very professional and care for employess.Good business model-making profits in a very hard economic market.

    Cons

    Career ladder non existent. No training for better job within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more info to employees for upcoming job openings- promote more from within first before going outside the company. Need to train your own people to fill these positions and make some type of syst em to follow to get there. To much insider only promotions.
