    I worked at AAA Cooper Transportation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Pay, Many opportunities to get lots of hours. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    I was Required to work WAY to many hours for years. Tried transferring to a different department but even then they ended up forcing us to work 60 hours every week. I and others was actually told by management that if we didn't like it we could always go flip burgers for a living. Needless to say many good employees have left the company because of this reason.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the needs of the frontline employees if you want to keep them. Stop treating them like slaves.

    Balanced company that requires focus and dedication.

    Cons

    Roll outs are not well thought out before implementation which causes several amendments afterwards.

    Pros

    Good, Stable, Flexible, Benefits, Multiple locations

    Cons

    Managers are overloaded with accounts.

    Spread work loads around. Hire more or use supervisors for dedicated accounts to share the load with SOM's.

    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
