    Pros

    Competitive pay, Monthly bonuses for most positions

    Cons

    The Company has changed management in the last few years. Since then it feels like they no longer care about their office employees. I used to feel valued as an employee and knew that my work was appreciated. Now I feel like they are more concerned with how much money they can make. It is like they are purposefully pushing the long term hard workers out to hire employees who will make less. When I first started they had very little turn over in the office staff. Now I have had 3 managers in 2 years. If you do not value your employees they will not stay around long term.

    Advice to Management

    Value your hard working employees more. Check that upper management is treating the office staff properly. Most people I talk to are to afraid to complain or say anything to HR because they are worried they will loose their jobs. It is a very volatile work environment right now for the non management staff. I used to love my job and coming to work. Now I go in fear of loosing my job or of being asked to do things that are not morally correct( for example over bill miles). But if you do not do them then you will be in trouble. Upper management needs to go back to treating the staff better. We should not be afraid to stand up for what is right and best for our customers.

    Pros

    Friendly dispatch and the pay was good when they had a lot of loads to move. They paid weekly. They didn’t mind when u requested days off since they had so many drivers to work. It was a pretty laid back management. I got along with management and they would hear me out if I ever wanted to complain about something they would try to help out as much as they could.

    Cons

    Would have to sit around for hours waiting for loads, they kept hiring more and more people when they already had a lot of us drivers sitting around for loads not making money. They didn’t pay us when we were sitting around waiting. It was stressful cause it got to a point where us the drivers were competing and racing trying to get to places first. Cause it was a first come first serve everyday at this job. At least for the evening drivers it was. The 2nd shift ppl. And after the holidays things would slow down a lot and I wouldn’t make a good check. Oh and the Smithfield plants stink! Plus they had pot holes and trailers would get stuck and it was such a hassle. But when I left they were doing upgrades to the Tar Heel NC Smithfield plant so hopefully the roads will b better.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring so many people when the ones you already got be sitting around for hours waiting for loads.

    which procedures on you without informing you then you get in trouble for doing something you've been taught to do, they don't properly train their staff members, you will never get off on time

    Advice to Management

    Support your staff because they are the ones who create functionality, not corporate.

    Pros

    The job is busy and the day goes by quickly. There is always a lot of things to do.The pay is not terrible.

    Cons

    No structure to management, which makes all other aspects very unorganized. Because they have no structure the way things are done is always changing, and not always for the better. You are just a number. Position or tenure do not hold any weight. You will and can be replaced. Performance is not a decision on being replaced. If you share ideas that others not agree with be careful. I️ have seen many people loose their job for doing just that.

    Advice to Management

    Find the way that you would like to manage the company and carry it out.
