    I have been working at Forward Air part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work environment
    Strong teamwork mentality
    Management that cares about you as a person, not just as an employee
    Competitive pay and pay increase structure (even for part time)

    Cons

    The work can be physically taxing
    Hours can be long (pro if you need the $$)
    Other terminals (Columbus) seem to care less about how freight is shipped to you

    Advice to Management

    Step up quality management among all terminals, including your hubs. I have seen so much inventory senselessly destroyed because of cut corners on the loading of trailers.
