    I worked at Celadon Trucking Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    On site cafe (no need to ever leave for lunch - there's pretty good quality food served daily on site. Pay was competitive.

    Cons

    Nearly everything else other than the two factors above, that a person would value in the workplace, is sub-par at Celadon. The culture there is terrible (they blame it on finances and "challenging times" but the people in leadership roles there would be who they are regardless of the state of the business), there is no work/life balance as far as they're concerned (not for YOU, anyway - they're okay with doing whatever...

    Advice to Management

    "The patient is running the clinic" here, and many of the tenured people you've got are not useful. You're doing things that the company did once before in the past and found them to be COSTLY failures, and these actions are impacting peoples' lives directly -- immediately. Choosing to fail again expensively is not a hallmark of quality leadership. Either develop a winning culture and act like you value those who...

    Former Employee - Logistics Analyst 

    I worked at Celadon Trucking Services full-time

    Pros

    You will get to know the people you work with very well. Overall, there is not a super strict HR policy on the floor. You are able to be yourself.

    Cons

    Too many senior managers, policies changing every day. Failure to pay out on incentive initiatives

    Pros

    Co workers, onsite gym cafe and clinic, non traditional schedule options, pay

    Cons

    Very high stress long hours and the morale is awful. Walking in feels like attending a funeral. Just oppressive. Managers that micro manage but don't actually pitch in to help when things are overwhelming. Running on a skeleton crew and everything good gas been sucked out the culture to focus on a phone systems percentage report card. The drivers are unprofessional and treat staff like trash do as they please cuss and...

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing your time on the numbers in Salesforce and start listening to your people. Rather than take away every single thing like the ability to listen to music so people can focus, try to find a way to spread the work load out. Offer some praise to your people every now and then. At this critical time you want to keep your good staff. The rumblings are everyone is looking for a way out. Give us a reason to want...

    "Management is unaware"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Celadon Trucking Services

    Pros

    Mid level managers are great. Coworkers try to be friendly.

    Cons

    Upper management claims to be trying to “go back to basics” but they are forgetting rule 1: know your employees. Steve Russell recognized many people, even if he didn’t remember their name. Employees were not just a means to an ends for him.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to who is actually a loyal and dedicated employee and stop promoting ones who do nothing.
