    Pros

    Pacer's Dublin OH facility is good and centrally located. Staff were open, friendly, and mutually supportive.

    Cons

    HR was weak during my time there but that's typical of HR in most companies: too much bureaucracy, too many rules, etc. Systems needed to be better integrated but those efforts were under way when I left.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk

    Pros

    Fast pace, keeps you on your toes. Logisitcs is an uprising industry that you will have a good experience at Pacer. Employees are friendly.

    Cons

    Very threatning environment. Tough to deal with managers and directors expecially in Finance. Mirco management and looking over your shoulders while doing any reporting or analysis. Pay is the worst in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Engage with you employees, really not only through town hall meetings where you just talk and no one contribute. Fire the directors who think that the can do whatever because they have been with the company for a century, these ones are the main cause of the problem.


  7. I loved it! Other employees were great and it was a great team atmosphere! Management was responsive; pay was good.

    Pros

    I would say one of the biggest pros is there is a great ability to educate yourself and get in-depth knowledge in a few aspects of transportation.

    Cons

    There is a fair amount of turnover and my opinion is that it would be due to lack of on-going training.
