    I have been working at Central Transport full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Requires less than 1 yr experience to get hired. You will start your day no later than 8:30 and end your day typically no later than 6:30. Consistant route. Decent trucks.Good work/home balance.

    Cons

    The terminal is in terrible condition. Most of the trailers are in terrible condition. Only 1 week of vacation/ if you take off after that, you don’t get paid. You have to work the dock once your day is done(Not that bad)

    Advice to Management

    1.Give more vacation/sick days 2. Invest money into trucks/terminal 3. Hire dock workers to help off load trailers at the end of the day 4. Make sure that management isn’t manipulating employees to do more than possible.

      I have been working at Central Transport full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      No shortage of work, even in the slow seasons. You can work as much as you like, even volunteer for Saturday line runs. Good people all around you. General team spirit.

      Cons

      Processes and methods are archaic with every minuscule issue requiring management or corporate intervention. One small problem can ruin your whole day. Barebones approach to maintenance and equipment. Drivers are also dock workers.

      Advice to Management

      Mentor more and yell less. Employees may make childish errors at times, but they are not your children. Corporate needs to back out of micromanaging the terminals.

      I have been working at Central Transport full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Central provides a TON of room for growth, if you're willing to work hard. Co-workers are great, and it's a friendly atmosphere. The company is finally putting some money into renovating the office, which is nice to see!

      Cons

      Employee benefits are not the greatest: lack of direct deposit, no 401k match offered, benefits packages are pretty expensive, vacation time low compared to other companies.

      Advice to Management

      Offer a 401k match, better PTO time, etc.

      Approves of CEO

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

      Pros

      I was at a driving job, that paid 900 per week, and they called me off every other day. Central hired me on in Cincinnati. I really love working night, and running to South Bend, where I unload my trailer. This is a really good job, and my pay is almost double. No complaints, and this terminal is really clean and organized.

      Cons

      Work me on the weekends more, I want to take extra loads.

      Advice to Management

      good managers, good peeps
