    Pros

    Great pay for miles and dock pay

    Cons

    Poor management and no freight.

    Advice to Management

    Set a standard on how freight is loaded and hold the same standard on all freight terminals as others. We are loosing freight to other companies because of dead beats that destroy freight

    Pros

    When and if you get to full time status, the benefits are good. Not great, but good.

    Cons

    Shady management, no one really knows what's going on, and it's rare that someone above shift supervisor is honest with you about anything.

    Advice to Management

    Be upfront and honest with your employees.

    Pros

    It's a job. Benefits are good. There's really nothing else I can say here. Trying to fill up the 20 word minimum.

    Cons

    Forget steady work. They screw the clerical staff over. No such thing as 40 hours a week anymore. They depend on loyalty and screw you over.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bragging about your yearly profits and take care of the staff who is the backbone of your operation. Yes, the drivers are your bread and butter but without capable office staff your terminals will fail.

    You can go to another terminal, to work, if your terminal doesnt have anough work for you.

    Cons

    Dedicated doesn't make as much as LTL Drivers

    Advice to Management

    Raise pay for Dedicated Drivers

    The people you work with at individual terminals

    Pros

    They work workers to death and let the lazy people slide. They have no employee loyalty but hey we will work you all the hours you want and more.

    Cons

    Sick pay doesn't start till you've been out 5 days.
    You are part time for 8 weeks and this doesn't mean you work part time hours it mean you will work 60 - 70 hours until week number 7 when they cut you to under 35 hours so you can do your 8 weeks all over again.
    Outdated equipment .
    Not a family friendly company in the least.
    Pay scale below other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Get caught up with the other companies in pay and employee loyalty if you wish to retain good people.

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are great. On dedicated I'm home everyday, and my hours are close to the same everyday, I leave out at the same time everyday, but as most driving jobs go, I get back when I'm done, which is usually within an hour of the same time.

    Cons

    At my branch, there isn't back up trucks, so if yours breaks down you have to wait for them to find you a truck. All dedicated is slip seat. It's hard to get on daytime routes.
