    Pros

    The Terminal Managers and drivers are phenomenal, without them, this old scrooge of an owner would be bankrupt

    Cons

    Everything I just can’t even pick one thing

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is non existent, they just pack lips and forward emails around, never reaching out and just rely on the good terminal managers who have been here for a while to save them. The equipment is terrible and a lawsuit waiting to happen. Thinking about working here? Do you have a family? Well you will never see them again, you belong to Central Transport from now until the day you die. You wake up and brush...

      Pros

      If you can look passed the cons they pay well, only way to keep people.

      Cons

      Old, unsafe, damages equipment, the most basic service on trucks is barely provided; rundown facilities, run on the ragged edge with minimal staffing, qualified people were passed over for upper level positions, freight treated like soccer balls, constantly changing direction of where breakbulk locations, massive turnover, dirty bathrooms, long hours, so so medical, poor 401k, vacation standard. Knew many people that...

      I have been working at Central Transport full-time for more than a year

      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.

      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! :)
