    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.

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

        Pros

        Starting pay and garunteed hours. Overtime is likely.

        Cons

        Management/Directors are very rude, act like they are better than everyone else. And when you try to talk to your so called “manager/supervisor” they are ALWAYS too busy and the issues are never handled correctly. Insurance is horrible.

        Advice to Management

        Try talking TO your employees, not AT them. TEACH them, instead of belittling them when a mistake is made. Give adequate time for training.

        I worked at Central Transport full-time for more than 6 years

        Pros

        Pay initially but after realize you are hourly as a sales employee. Some people work 40 hours, some work 45 hours and a bonus structure where you will absolutely never know what you will make. You should be considered “lucky” if you have a bonus on your check, and if not then expect that.

        Cons

        Toxic Environment Poor Communicaion Poor working conditions Incompetent leadership Little employee appreciation Impossible longevity working within the team This department internally is most poorly ran department in the company. You are essentially a peon in the pecking order. As the companies biggest money makers, the expectations are rediculous compared to how you are treated and affirmed. There is ZERO and...

        Advice to Management

        If you reward hard working employees, they will feel rewarded, and in turn will reward you with more hard work. If you continue to not listen to what most of your employees are crying out for, you will continue to see reviews like this one.

        I have been working at Central Transport full-time

        Pros

        $1200-$1300/wk on average for night drivers. The work is really easy. You make your nightly run and then work the dock for a few hours after you return. You get paid more for working the dock than the dock workers. They currently have a hiring bonus.

        Cons

        You are paid per run and it depends where you have to drive to. You have an eta that they expect you to stick to. Not much room for advancement. I have been an employee for less than 2 years and make practically the same pay as an employee that has worked for the company for 14 years. Benefits sucks. Newer employees get one paid day off after working for two months but after your 90 day probationary period. If you are...

        Pros

        Competitive starting pay but that's about the only positive thing about this place.

        Cons

        Lies from anyone in a management position, no direct deposit, payroll likes to screw you often, their benefits communication is convoluted and confusing, the entire company is built to be a scam, NOBODY is held accountable.

        Advice to Management

        This place was a garbage heap from the start. Most of the trailers this company puts on the road are barely legel, if at all. Broken side posts? Put some trailer tape on it and let it roll. Hole in the trailer? Put some trailer tape on it and let it roll? Damaged rail and radius with aluminum ripped open? Put some trailer tape on it and let it roll. The repair standards are horrible, and doing it fast and loose gets rewarded...

        Cons

        Where to even begin. You have egotistical leaders who seem great face to face then spread lies behind your back. Not to mention when moving on they canceled health insurance without even telling me, (i didn’t even know i wasn’t covered anymore until i went to the doctor) but they still continue to take it out of the checks they owe you (charged for full amount when you didn’t get covered for a full week). Never received...
