    I have been working at American Central Transport full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company is a family owned buisness. It makes you feel at home. They have an awesome recruiting staff. Freight is always moving sometimes it does slow down but its normally in the winter months.

    Cons

    I dont have anything negative to say.

    Advice to Management

    I know that theres a new CEO. My advice is dont change anything at all. The kretsinger family has made this buisness the way it should be run. If you want to keep drivers dont change a good thing.

    Pros

    Excellent leadership. Benefits are very good. People are top quality. Company looks out for the best interest of the employees while leading the business. Company manages to metrics and shares this information with everyone. Employees have input into some of the decisions.

    Cons

    Older building but plans for new one being built. Nothing much to say about Cons. Maybe the road in front of the building.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing

    I worked at American Central Transport full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I really gotta say there ain't any

    Cons

    Fire you over minor incident. Try using every camera trigger against you to make you look like an unsafe driver. Say you were fired for misconduct. Just really a bunch of LIARS. They talk about being driver friendly but don't even follow their own policy book or FMCSR but preach about safety.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with drivers. Follow your policies and FMCSR because your company ain't above them and those rules are there for safety. Something your management preaches but don't really follow as long as the freight moves without incident.

    Pros

    They have a really good people skill set open door policy along with really nice staff. they have a nice maintenance shop.

    Cons

    they don't offer enough dedicated routes for lease they offer them to there company drivers not there lease drivers. so not enough routes get you through the house in my area and i end up eating the cost to come home.

    Advice to Management

    I really don't have any advice for management that is not my area of expertise they will eventually get the things they need done like i said they are a really good place to work for i just need home a lot more now..

    Pros

    The core values, Safety, Accountability, Integrity, Respect, and Family are more than just words on a poster... the are ACT's very being.

    Cons

    No negatives but if I had to come up with something, I would say improvement would be made if the corporate office and maintenance facility shared a building or were at least closer together.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on!!
