    I have been working at ABF Freight full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Because of Union contract, good pay

    Cons

    Long hours from home/family
    Often fail to pay jobs completed
    Are not honest about lack of time off (3 years b4 1st wk VAC, 8 yrs to 2, 15 yrs for 3).

    Advice to Management

    Show more concern for the road drivers. Each one is a human being; most with family/children at home that they don't even see once a week.

    BENEFITS are outstanding for drivers. Teamsters pay and benfits. Home every night for local P&D

    Training for new hires could be better

    Develop a training program run by teamsters. Not management

    Pros

    The pay is very good for the industry and the bonuses are an added pro. I enjoy working for ABF freight

    Cons

    Advancement. The only negative is you have to be involved in sales if you want to be an operations manager or branch manager

    Advice to Management

    Nothing

    Pros

    it is a paycheck less 15%

    Cons

    too many METRICS..the skill and the will is a joke..mgrs cheat on service and ABF is really not a "nationwide" carrier. Deception to customers with "marketing partners" Business stinks..thank goodness for UPacks

    Advice to Management

    Better be ready when the next contact comes up! Workers took a big pay cut and THE EXECS got a large bonus...mostly due to the pay cuts...company really didn't operate well with the deceptive accounting numbers!

    Pros

    I worked with a great group of people. The office staff and dock supervisors were great to be around. I miss that place.

    Cons

    The only con that I can come up with, is they closed down the Springfield IL terminal, which had 182 doors. There was times it was so busy, there were no place to put trailers when you split them.
