    I worked at Central Transport full-time for more than 4 years

    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.

    Advice to Management

    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

    Descent pay package. New trucks

    Rude dispatchers. Trailers are in bad shape. Hand helds are really complicated at times.no direct deposit. Slow 62 mph trucks.

    I worked at Central Transport full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Easily clear $1,000 every week (whether you want to or not) Average paycheck was $1,100 and that’s after tax, med, dental, 401k

    Cons

    You will work 14 hour nights. Doesn’t matter how long or short your day is, you will spend 14 hours either driving or working the dock.

    Advice to Management

    Pssh, right.

    Pros

    Decent trucks. Terminal manager nice.

    Cons

    Line haul dispatch treats drivers like trash. Constantly puts you in a 40 minute loop, places you on hold without greeting you. Some trucks go 10 mph faster than others. Company needs a union.

    Advice to Management

    Drivers need to be able to rate line haul dispatch service. It's horrible. Does HR even have a phone number.

    I have been working at Central Transport full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    management takes care of issues as quick as they can. health insurance "big upgrade" to blue cross blue shield. the pay is real good compare to other companies around

    Cons

    long hours and weekend work. trailelers not in very good shape but they have mechanic available to get them repair quick and get you on the go. no direct deposit even though checks are always on time. no training given, they look for experience employees but reasonable with production as long production from everyone improves daily.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to interact more and continue to care about us employees
