    I have been working at Southern Refrigerated Transport full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good equipment. Decent miles. Dispatch folks are, in general, knowledgeable and easy to deal with. Safety dept is, like many other co's, a group of folks who enjoy making drivers squirm. Payroll? Keep your eye on them...

    Cons

    High corporate turnover rate, combined with a corporate culture that denigrates drivers makes contact with anyone other than dispatch a nightmare. Shop and breakdown dept's are in general easy to work with and serious about what they do.

    Advice to Management

    Don't simply give lip service to drivers, inculcate a REAL culture of fair and respectful relations with them. Too often msg's are sent over QC saying basicly 'we love you guys! We're here for you!' When in all honesty few if any of the drivers sense that in their communications with corporate.
