    Pros

    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.

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

    Pros

    The only pro I can think of is......this is tough.....scratch that, I can’t think of a pro.

    Cons

    Where to begin.... 1. Savage work environment. Corporate policy creates hostile work environments at the terminal level. 2. Zero compassion or concern for humans. I watched them (and to my regret assisted them as a result of being forced) in screwing over some incredibly good guys (and women). Death in your family? Don’t care. Sick? Don’t care. Your child have a special need? Don’t care. As a terminal manager...

    I worked at Central Transport full-time

    Pros

    There are no pros, I am required to put at least 5 words. I wouldn’t recommend this company to my worst enemy.

    Cons

    Flat out..this company does not care about their employees or customers. I have never seen a company treat people like Central Transport does. You will get better benefits and basic human courtesy anywhere else but here. If you work here you can expect: No support from your manager. RDS’s are no support or help at all. Wasted layer of management. You are out on a island doing this all on your own. Sinking. If...

    Advice to Management

    This section is a joke for CT because they do not care. Do not pay attention to their form HR response. It is all talk. They have said on here contact your HR partner, wait we had those? See above on opinion of HR. And management....what a joke. They do not want to hear from anyone.

    I have been working at Central Transport full-time

    Pros

    -Paycheck -Guys at the terminal are awesome

    Cons

    Where to even start. Unless you are desperate for a paycheck, steer clear. They will try and give you a large base salary to get you to work for them, and they will not deliver on anything they promise. They cycle through people like trash and do not care about the employees working for them. -No matter what they say about "trying to change the reputation of Central", they continually screw customers over. Your job...

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

    Pros

    Awesome co-workers Great pay Family atmosphere (at my terminal, anyway) Night dispatchers are fantastic! (I've never said that before!)

    Cons

    Bad equipment Bad maintenance Lack of supplies

    Advice to Management

    Put some money into your equipment. Some trucks are slow as molasses (61 mph), and others run 70+. Standardize at 70. Less fatigue, lower risk.

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

    Pros

    Pay was very good for the job. You can make a schedule of when you want to visit people. You can work 3-5 hours visiting 10-12 accounts and be home checking emails and dealing with issues by 1-2.

    Cons

    Where to start. First of all if you are a woman good luck in this role, the industry is very male dominated and even if you feel unsafe at a location management will tell you to go back for the business. The majority of upper management is all old white males who have been at the top for years. Very old fashioned and stuck in the past. They do no even have direct deposit. Upper management will follow you maybe once every...
