    I have been working at R+L Carriers

    Pros

    Great hourly pay, equally great benefits (a lil expensive though) 3 free vacation resorts & off weekends unless you want to work or are asked to.

    Cons

    No overtime pay, if you work over 40hrs it's all straight time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying overtime. The overtime could be paid for all hours worked over 50 like some other companies do.

    Plenty of hours, free vacation resorts, decent pay, awesome crew to work with. Constant work even in slow times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work everyone equally even though you gotta deal with their crying. Newbees should have to do their job too

    The work was steady and they listen to the drivers needs.

    Former Employee - Dock Freight Handler in Montgomery, NY

    I worked at R+L Carriers part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    A paycheck and designated hours were alright overall.

    Cons

    Co-workers on the dock became extremely hostile and unfriendly simply because if you make mistakes or still trying to learn about how it works overall. Being accused of things I was trying to do, no moral support or small talk to break the ice for the most part, and being threatened with termination if taking a sick day or anything else like that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Operations Supervisors seriously need to evaluate how the treat those working under them and not be offensive or disrespectful that could cause further problems or confrontations.

    Pros

    Good pay, some of the people are really good people.

    Cons

    very cold in winter. They provide a heated trailer to warm up between jobs, but one of the leads will imply you are slacking if you use it. Old equipment. Nothing is done to create a "happy" workplace. If a person is a "producer" he is held to a different standard. Creating animosity. Work schedule not regular.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote more of a work together environment, and make sure it is never turned into a contest. We are supposed to be on the same team.
