    I have been working at Atlas Van Lines full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with throughout the company and some areas of the company are growing at this time. Atlas provides community support to local nonprofits, students, military veterans, and more; offers paid volunteer time in community support to all employees. Atlas is not the largest company in the moving business, but we have earned the reputation among our customers and our competitors as the best through expertise, quality, technology and safety.

    Cons

    Compensation could be better; occasionally lose strong employees because of this.

    Pros

    casual dress code, very friendly human resources employees, nice and clean facility, and great benefits

    Cons

    very very dramatic, constantly feeling like everyone is watching for your mistakes, they expect you to learn how to do everything the first time they explain something, or sometimes they get mad about something you didn't know. Poor training within departments

    Advice to Management

    Give in depth training to new employees...

    Pros

    Laid back environment
    Friendly and helpful coworkers

    I loved interning at Atlas Van Lines. My boss is wonderful. He not only gives me good direction but also cares about me personally and how I do in the future even if it ends up being with a different company. My coworkers are also very helpful and have helped me out many times when my boss was busy or it was just a simple question. My experience has been all pros.

    Cons

    No openings.

    I love working here but there aren't any openings in my department at the moment so unfortunately I am having to find a full time position elsewhere.

    Great company to work for. Very honest and reputable.

    Cons

    On the road a lot. Dealing with different agents across the US. Some drivers don't pay well

    Advice to Management

    Have a set amount to pay the contractors instead of the whole hourly situation. Contractors don't want to work by the hr.
