    Pros

    Very friendly people, great corporate office and decent pay for starting out.

    Cons

    Hard to grow there, opportunities are slim unless someone leaves their position, not very cutting edge with their material and lack of proper training

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more of a system when hiring new people. After all of the paperwork, the responsibility of the position is a blur.

    Great Company, Great Benefits, Wages are Lower End

    Current Employee - Supervisor/Management in Pittsburgh, PA
    Current Employee - Supervisor/Management in Pittsburgh, PA

    I have been working at Pitt Ohio Express full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people are great, the benefits are fantastic and I would recommend other people to work at Pitt Ohio Express.

    Cons

    Low wages are not competitive in the region or across the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to get together and see one vision on the growth and success to move the company forward. There is too much bickering and not enough getting along. If they could come together as a team, Pitt Ohio Express would be unstoppable in the transportation industry.

    I worked at Pitt Ohio Express as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company truly adopts a family atmosphere and is staffed with employees who are willing to help. The environment is very relaxed and uses and "open door" policy. Weekly pay instead of bi-weekly is a plus.

    Cons

    An apparent disconnect/communication issue between departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to adopt PITT OHIOs current company culture.

    I have been working at Pitt Ohio Express

    Pros

    Decent wages
    Growing company with very stable work flow
    Excellent benefits
    Getting fired is next to impossible (???)
    Company will bend for you a little if you need it

    Cons

    Company is tired and entrenched in "the old way"
    Cognitive resources are extremely limited
    If your not a Hammel (owner) or know him you'll find it irrationally difficult to move up
    Family/friends move up
    Most decisions are emotionally motivated and entirely reactive
    management communication mostly resembles siblings at the dinner table

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you seriously wish to compete with the "big boys" I would suggest a complete change in culture, top down restructuring of management philosophy along with the personnel that perpetuates this inequitable and archaic management style, and a complete redesigning of the current labor model. Pitt-Ohio is a fine example of a company blinded by it's own success.
