    I have been working at Rush Trucking

    Pros

    It all depends on which terminal you are working for! You can have a good or terrible experience!

    Cons

    The worst experience was getting paid properly out of the Louisville Ky terminal! It all depended on having quality people in the office!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had terrible experience getting called back when my pay was wrong! It is my opinion that the owner Ms. Rush needs to have an open door department that keeps drivers like me from falling through the cracks and also to report to her!

    I have been working at Rush Trucking full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    61 mph trucks e-logs that are on reliable. Dont have to worry about getting speeding ticket on open highway and people always waiving there finger at you and mooning you!

    Cons

    Some of the butts you get to see are not sexy! Chasing down your pay from 3 weeks prior because they always try to short you on payday hoping you cant remember what you did 3 weeks earlier!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourselves!

    I have been working at Rush Trucking full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Home time. Dependable miles. Easy runs

    Cons

    Layoffs are too often. Lack of planning by head people to keep you rolling during the layoffs. Lack of communication. Won't listen to drivers about issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire every office worker and start over

    I have been working at Rush Trucking full-time

    Pros

    $17hr is some of the best pay in the area. The short shuttle runs will spoil a driver. The options for additional weekend hours is always available.

    Cons

    The layoffs are brutal if you can't or don't prepare for them. You work 3 weeks in the hole before you get the first check. During layoff there are always issues with collecting unemployment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rush prides itself on being minority owned but except for the largest minority (women) there are almost no minorities in administration who can add to diversity and insight aside from the status quo.

    I worked at Rush Trucking full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Not there long enough to see any.

    Cons

    No training. Brought in, worked a whole 5 days with no training/instruction. Walked out the door 5 days later with them citing "It's not working out"- One week there & no training will cause this (and I wasn't even supposed to ask my co-workers any questions! Their expectation is if you did the work at another company (and on another company's computer system) you should automatically know how to do it & give them exactly what they want- with no training???

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train employees so they know what to do, before letting them go because they can't do the job.

    Pros

    good start pay but no raises

    Cons

    very self centered company that doesnt follow the rules of osha and dot and employee pay and benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    go to the drivers and dispatchers of non michigan offices and ask real questions without others in the room. make sure supervisors dont find out because they will find a way to fire you so they dont have to change a thing.
