    Empty Promises

    Pros

    The pay is decent enough for the operations staff and the benefits seem like they'd be good if you last to the point where you can use them.

    Cons

    Was hired on for a subsidiary of Celadon and was told at time of hiring that the company was growing so quickly that they couldn't hire enough operations staff quickly enough. The second or third week on the job, layoffs began at this subsidiary and an entire terminal was closed. Right before my medical insurance was to kick in, I was laid off, citing driver attrition. Was told that my board was among the smallest and that it was easiest for them to redistribute my drivers to other boards. This company doesn't seem to care about its people.

    Will screw you over, the SEC is investigating, best to keep your head down and say nothing.

    Pros

    There are a lot of good lower level people here. Apparently working upstairs is better than operations or customer service (sales).

    Cons

    They routinely change things with little plan and almost always turns out badly. Senior management is all friends from college, or buddies from frats/sororities. There are almost routine cleansings, where lots of mid-senior people are just sent packing because of the fact they have no clue what they are doing. Multiple senior leaders (VP's senior Directors) are under 30 or very low 30's, with ZERO experience in their jobs or even the industry prior to be hired. They nearly universally have no clue what they are doing. Training is okay, but you will have no clue who to report to, what you are supposed to do to take time off (HAHAHAHA), or who is in charge of you/responsible for any decisions. The pay is not good even for the industry, and they will not give you a raise. They have very shady business practices, the SEC has investigated a couple times and there is a current investigation going on about illegal accounting practices. (Just interview employees, we can tell you things are wrong) There are often conflicting messages from the multiple people who are in charge of you. Micromanaging can be terrible, depending on what department you are in. They will promise advancement, take your ideas for improving the department and then promote their friend and give him all your ideas. If you point things out that are crazy, losing money, don't make business sense, etc. They will fire you for any BS they can come up with. (Bunch of friends made the mistake of trying to point out problems) one was let go for not being a team player for taking a day off for a family funeral! Another for attitude issues... despite never having any issues/attitude problems and no write ups. In Operations they will expect you to work over hours, take calls 24/7 and have zero interest in work life balance, 60+ hour work weeks are common, and then you should expect to work from home for another 10+ hours/week.

    Pros

    Big company with lots of opportunity.

    Cons

    No concern for the employee's. If you are not in front of them everyday you are invisible and get no support being out of their view.
