    I have been working at Central Transport

    Pros

    Nothing, I really can’t say anything positive about my time here and that makes me sick

    Cons

    They don’t use direct deposit and they lose paychecks every week You’re expected to put in 12-15 hours a day and not get paid past 8 They will set you up to fail

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice, this company is terrible DO NOT work for this company My advice would be use direct deposit so that you don’t have to send around the weekly “lost paychecks, anyone seen it?” List I get being efficient and cutting costs, but it comes to a point where it’s detrimental to the process and no one seems to care about that I’m legitimately about to quit and work some minimum wage job because this really...

    I worked at Central Transport full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Only 1 = pay. But that feeling wont last after all the BS they want you to swallow.

    Cons

    Too many to list, lets say everything but pay. I've worked for 40 years and Central was hands down the worst.

    Advice to Management

    Any advice would be useless. Their entire thought process is counter productive. Their hsndhelds are junk, maintenance is a joke, and the efficiency anslysts.....well they are just plain funny.

      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.

      I have been working at Central Transport full-time for less 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.
