    I have been working at ABF Freight part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Shifts go fast. Workers are 99% great. Work is interesting and pay is about the best around for a part-time gig.

    Cons

    Can be a bit miserable at times when hot and humid, making midnight to 8 my preferred shift. Guess it will be worse when it is really cold. (Open air- no heat) Not flexible with shift times. midnight to 8 am, 8am to 4pm, 4pm to midnight. I asked to work 4:30pm to 12:30 am- no go.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at ABF Freight full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You learn some things about the industry

    Cons

    Long hours, Lazy, uninvolved management who sit in their offices and do nothing to help operations. Poor pay for the hours. Bad morale, unrealistic expectations

    Advice to Management

    Stop hazing new supervisor staff like it's some fraternity. You need new blood and if you keep treating your new employees like you do you'll never hold on to any new staff for more than a few months.

      Keep it up

      Co-workers are some of the best people I have worked with. Hard working and caring. Fun environment when the stress isn’t at an extreme level. Benefits are decent and insurance is fairly affordable.

      Image is everything. More important than the employees. Union environment can be very challenging at times.

      Focus on your employees, they are the business.
