    Pros

    Family oriented. Great work environment and pay. Upper management is approachable and cares about you. There is a lot of room for growth and career advancement.

    Cons

    It is the trucking industry so long odd hours are to be expected. Nights and weekends are normal as well as some holidays.

    Keep up the great work as OD excels to even greater levels!

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. I worked there 20 years and was treated with respect until I was injured. Then they were looking for any reason to let me go.

    Cons

    VERY click oriented company. They look after who ever is willing to sell their soul to O.D. and bleed green and white. If you want to work for a company all day every day you will be their favorite employee. Although if you EVER get hurt and can't perform like you did your gone!

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget who made that company what they are today. Because you guys firing all your old timers for stuff YOU allowed us to do for so long is wrong and you know it.
