    Pros

    A great home like place to work, my terminal mgr mrs mary osborn is the greatest boss ever, she sees my revenue stays up, and hometime requirements are met. I see and hear ppl bad mouth her and talk down about her, if these sorry ppl will do their job they will never hear a word from mrs osborn she is the most fair and respectable boss i have ever had she has been my boss since i came to this company even changing terminals i followed her and will continue to do so ..so pro's are if u want benefits galore a great home to work and retire at, a stable co with freight, and the most fair boss ever then mrs osborn and greer terminal of united road is place to be if u wanna work !

    Cons

    Drama from drivers as with any trucking company, ppl from another co we jus bought out not wanting to do their job then start spreading the drama you know he said she said he did she did if these ppl would mind their own business and do their job there would be no cons to this company !

    Advice to Management

    Mgmt over the whole company get rid of the drama and if they dont wanna do their job the united road way and mind their own business they need to hit the roadway these ppl need to leave my terminal mgr mrs mary osborn alone and let her do her job the united road way other than that great job ms kathleen my ceo and mr pat riley keep it up advice to terminal mgr mrs mary osborne keep up the good work and continue to run things the way you do my dispatcher kim is awesome and terminal is home !

    Pros

    Unlimited earning potential- no commission cap and great benefits

    Cons

    Minor micro managing, you receive a designated state in which your business must stay in unless other wise referred into a different territory which limits your sales. Company cell phone keeps you available 24 hrs a day

    Advice to Management

    They've already heard what we all have to say. They will do what is best for the company not for there employees which is understandable

    long days, work comes home, super stressful, training does not provide details on how to be successful. they hand pick the employees they will help succeed. the buddy system. i busted my hump daily and watched others get things handed to them. never stopped at my desk though.

    Great management team, emphasis on safety and training. They listen to employees and offer an open door policy. The pay is the best in the industry, and they just announced a 401k match. I love it here.
