    Got to work with prominent clients such as Toyota and Bosch.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Erlanger, KY

    ProsOwned by Mitsui of Japan, a financially strong/conservative international company. Transfreight had offices in USA, Canada, and Mexico. Learned a lot about kaizen (continuous improvement). Most people have a sense of humor.

    ConsWas often slow on decision-making and had a culture of micromanagement at one time (maybe both of these have changed with new management).

    Advice to Senior ManagementAccelerate calculated risk-taking and growth (maybe they have by now).

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A lot of hard work

    Shunt Driver (Current Employee)
    Princeton, IN

    ProsKeeps you busy, fast paced. chance for advancement after one year. not much else to say as a pro. other than to say its a job.

    ConsOld equipment the shunt truck I'm using is 8 years old and poorly maintained. Little to no training on the job your assigned. Pay is way below what it should be, if there is a mistake in your pay it takes a long time to get it fixed. If one of the shunt drivers has a day off, management waits until the last min to try to get someone to fill in, leaving the other shunt driver to do the extra work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to drivers suggestions better,we're the ones out there doing the job and things look a lot different behind the wheel of the trucks than behind a desk.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A good job for problem-solvers

    Traffic Coordinator (Former Employee)
    Tipp City, OH

    ProsTransfreight is a good place to work for anyone interested in logistics and analyzing problems. The company generally promotes from within whenever possible, and tries to be as responsive as possible by adopting Toyota's kaizen philosophy.

    ConsSome of the supervisors are not particularly respectful of their employees. Furthermore, traffic coordinators are expected to change shifts every few months, which makes it difficult to schedule any personal activities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire people to work specific shifts instead of constantly changing shifts, and provide employees with more positive feedback when they excel.
