    I have been working at Central Transport full-time (More than 8 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 requested numerous times to corporate that he get the job. And still he got passed over! I won't be here much longer because I see how they treat their long time employees.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN to the people that live this every day and NOT to the people who don't even know any of us!

    I have been working at Central Transport full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty of work in the city and you get a few hours working dock. If your a skilled driver then you make it easier on yourself dropping off and picking up freight. Supervisor and manager are good at what they do and you can call them at anytime for assistance. New trucks and getting more new trailers. Also good place to learn and get your driving experience. Home daily off weekends, Saturday’s volunteer work.

    Cons

    Wish I got paid by experience but they start new drivers at the same pay rate. Forklifts are beat up and not always functioning correct(some not all). Also wish we got paid per stop and for each pallet we pick up. Gotta work at least 9 to 10 hrs a day for a nice paycheck. A terminal with more space would help a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your drivers and they’ll take care of you.
