    I have been working at AAA Cooper Transportation full-time (Less than a year)

    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.

    I worked at AAA Cooper Transportation full-time (More than 5 years)

    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    Outdated equipment .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

    Still family owned with good benefits

    Cons

    Pros

    I worked the last 9 months in this position. The drivers work very hard that make this job easier. All drivers are also the dock workers. Handling customers and computer skill experience makes this job easier. The pay is comparable to competitors.

    Cons

    High intensity, heavy accountability, long hours. You are also the floater driver. When short handed which is most of the time you are a P&D driver that never knows where you are going until that day.
    The equipment is old and little tolerance for mistakes.
    Insurance 2.5 stars of 5. No sick leave, no Short Term Disability.

    Advice to Management

    In Orange the Terminal Manager gets a bad rap. He carries a lot of weight and knows the business well. Sales manager is a good man too. AAA Cooper is fortunate to have both of them.

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

    Pros

    Overall - it's a bunch of hard working people that function as a team to get freight delivered and keep customers happy.

    Cons

    The overwhelming majority of policy enforcement and process adherence is based on the whims of the local management. Having a dishonest Manager kills morale.

    Advice to Management

    In order to attract/retain better SCMs and Sups, increase salary for SCMs & Sups.

    Supervisors work like machines to keep the freight moving. Lazy/apathetic Managers will sit back and let the Supervisors work 6 day weeks with little to no relief.
