    I worked at Old Dominion Freight full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great insurance, 401K match, the people, the pay, nice equipment, customer flexibility, strong financially secure company.

    Cons

    Too many hours, no appreciation, too many "good ole boy" clubs, does not always hire from within, upper management are not honest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire from within especially when the employee has the skills and qualifications, keeps employee morale in check. Corporate office closes for holidays but makes terminals work, especially line haul... Not right! Corporate office take 1 hour lunch breaks and work 8 hour days. Terminal workers take 1/2 hour lunch breaks and work 10 plus hour days... No time to spend with family. Not a family oriented company as claimed.

    Pros

    Mostly positive. ... good money not much waiting for linehaul dispatches. Most awesome very and I mean elite equipment.

    Cons

    They have their cliques.... vacation really sucks if they allow you to take it. You are forced or coerced to run extra after you've done your bid run. Cant make plans to do anything outside of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make vacation more appealing. Let extraboard do the "extra" work.

    I worked at Old Dominion Freight part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay compared to what most places pay

    Early morning hours, so your evenings are free

    Cons

    Was treated unfairly and unprofessionally after I experienced an injury. Also, I received terrible training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked for this company for about six months and everything seemed fine at first. However, things began to change after I accidentally injured myself at home one day, and was prescribed to stay home and rest by my doctor. The company pressured me to come back to work earlier than my doctor recommended, but since I'm a kind and thoughtful person, I went ahead and decided to go back early. One morning, after an extreme amount of effort was used to drive myself to work (due to my injury), my efforts were wasted when I realized that I was locked out of the building even though I was scheduled to be there. They didn't even pay me for showing up! They acted like it was my fault for not waiting longer for someone to come unlock the door (after I had already patiently waited for an hour...). Also, I had to use the restroom very badly, so there wasn't any way that I could wait any longer. I requested to still be paid for that day since it wasn't my fault that they didn't unlock the door on time, but they said no. So I went up the ladder and started calling the corporate bosses of the company to tell them what happened and to see if they would help me. Long story short, they acted like I was completely at fault and wouldn't take any responsibility for what happened. I have never felt so taken advantage of and unappreciated by a company before in my whole life. I 1000% do not recommend working for this company. They don't care about their employees or about behaving like decent human beings...if I could give them no star, I would.

    Pros

    pay is good, that's about it.

    Cons

    The good ol boys system isn't working, morale sucks, management spends more time using it's time at work for personal agenda. Nothing is ever good enough, the daily cussing and threatened to be fired is getting old.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why are you hiring these college kids that have no idea what's going on, why not promote from within.

    Pros

    Good family atmosphere in large company. See a lot of development and modernization.

    Cons

    The pay, (unless you are a driver) is on the lower side in certain markets. It is made up from in quarterly and yearly bonuses that are based on the success of the company, which is always good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend a little less on so much renovation and technology, and spend a little more on the payroll to be relative for your workers to be compensated the same if they went and did the same job right up the road.
