    We're so happy to read your positives! There is a two week processing period for payroll to ensure a high level of quality assurance and reduce errors. Instead of thinking of it as 2 weeks behind - think of it as 2 more weeks of pay coming your way! :)

    Pros

    Good money, Brand new tractors

    Cons

    Home life, horrible trailers, long hours, overworked, well below average benefits

    Advice to Management

    Invest in new trailers. I've been driving for 19 years, and have never seen a company operating so many old, dilapidated trailers as this company. Hire some more drivers and get more adequate dock space before trying to expand. Last but not least, get some real benefits for your employees. This is by far the worst insurance I've ever had at any trucking company I've worked for.

    Pros

    Decent hours Home every day Good Pay

    Cons

    Terminal Mangers are rude and very hard to get along with. Dont even think of calling drivers relation they will sale you out. No help for drivers even when your trying to do whats right.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating drivers like humans and robots. Drivers Relation start holding the managers accountable for their actions.

    To middle management, get out well you can and do it without making too many waves. To the overlords in warren mi, when people make complaints maybe lesion a little.

    Pros

    Awesome co-workers Great pay Family atmosphere (at my terminal, anyway) Night dispatchers are fantastic! (I've never said that before!)

    Cons

    Bad equipment Bad maintenance Lack of supplies

    Advice to Management

    Put some money into your equipment. Some trucks are slow as molasses (61 mph), and others run 70+. Standardize at 70. Less fatigue, lower risk.

    I have been working at Central Transport full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    pay is decent but too long hours

    Cons

    Their website is a huge lie, they do NOT hire from within no matter how qualified the person is. I watched our most experienced man there get passed over for a job not once, but twice! First time for a "kid" from outside the company who knew nothing about freight and the second time for our "latest terminal manager's" friend, also from outside the company. Both times we all wanted this guy to get the job and other managers...
