    I have been working at Alliance Shippers full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Advancement opportunities for individuals that are patient and willing to work hard. Stable environment. Open minded and able to voice ideas, suggestions,concerns without fear of reprisal. Loyal and Committed to its employees and customers. The company does not oversell which enables success with customers. The company has built a reputation in the market for being a solid partner to its customers, vendors, and employees which is something staff can be proud of. Traditional business environment which is a plus in today's market as customers fall victim to being a number versus a partner.

    Cons

    Long term may want to put additional emphasis on systems support to provide operating efficiencies to staff.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be open minded toward change in this ever-changing transportation environment.

    Pros

    Great place to gain professional experience and learn about the transportation industry. I was able to gain an extensive amount of professional and corporate experience during my 8 year employment with Alliance Shippers. Management was always helpful when I had questions and was able to guide me through some difficult tasks. They put a lot of confidence in their employees.

    Cons

    Vending machine needs some healthier snacks!

    I worked at Alliance Shippers (More than a year)

    Pros

    Laid back, free meals from vendors. Good food at the holidays.

    Cons

    Management has favorites, no room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Take classes on ethics. Owner needs to do an undercover boss. But thats impossible, everyone knows him and what hisc son look like.

    Pros

    There are a few good employees that make working there enjoyable.

    Cons

    When starting, you basically train yourself. There is an environment of heavy favoritism that is not based on skills or work ethic.

    Advice to Management

    The easiest thing to do is probably wrong, make an effort to improve at all levels of the business.

    Pros

    There were some great people there who were always willing to help. They were very understanding of your family life, and you could take off when needed.

    Cons

    Not much room to advance and have a thriving career. Training was not thorough. There was a lack of workload and often, most of the day was spent staring at the computer with nothing to do.

    Advice to Management

    Upon hiring someone, make sure there is actual work for them to do. Spend more time training and cultivating that individual for their position.

    Pros

    Fellow employees are hard working and always eager to help.

    Cons

    No one in upper management to go to for assistance in day to day operations. Sink or swim environment. Employees not valued and are expected to bend over backwards.

    Advice to Management

    Consider taking management courses and learn employees day to day operations so you can part of their team. Learn how to value your current employees. Owner should visit NJ operations office and make drastic changes for the benefit of the company.
