    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Interesting work, nice coworkers, stable, weekly paycheck.

    Cons

    Location, antiquated business practices, nepotism. Incompetent project management.

    Advice to Management

    Stop picking terrible locations, purge most of the upper management... They'll run your company into the ground. Give more than 3% increases.

    Pros

    Steady work and pretty relaxed place to work. They have employee resorts that all employees can stay at for free.

    Cons

    Bad management they refuse to pay over time and they only want freight they can charge extra fees for which means its a lot more work for the drivers.

    Advice to Management

    I really don't have to much advice except there is more to being a manager than being in charge and collecting a pay check.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    You stay out late and have to pick up slack of the whiners who get to go home early

    Advice to Management

    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.

    The dispatch team was hard to get along with. They were very disrespectful to the drivers.

    They need to stay on their dispatch team on how they treat their drivers.

    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 Management

    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.
