    Pros

    Modern tractors and trailers,Advanced on board computers.I enjoy some of the best working conditions in the industry,I'm home every day,treated like a prince,great benefits,generous vacation and the pay is great(105K this year) I've spent 30 years working LTL(both union and non union)and OD by far is the best company I've worked for!

    Cons

    Nothing major, they hire from the same pool of recycled hacks in middle management that our competetors also hire from,but they kind of make it up by having some really great talent in upper management ranks..

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, 5 day work week for line-haul, top of industry pay, new well maintained equipment, pleasant coworkers, excellent and affordable benefits, driver's are treated with respect.

    Cons

    I really find in difficult to have any complaints. Old Dominion is, by far, the best place i have worked as a driver. Cons are typical of any trucking job, long hours, and sometimes working in rough weather conditions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing! The small things you do go along way in contributing to morale.
