    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 for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Really none to speak of.

    Cons

    Absolute disgusting working conditions. Terminals are falling apart and they do not repair anything. They are not only disgusting but also are In violation of osha requirements. They will fly you out to Michigan and spin very detailed stories of how they are changing the company , so on and so on.... it is all a very calculated and well articulated act to sell you on central. Once you get to your terminal, forget it......

    I worked at Central Transport full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Was not micromanaged. Had down time between shifts since everything is controlled at the home office. My regional director was good to work for.

    Cons

    You have no say in how to operate. Everything is controlled through the home office in Detroit, MI. 401k is not matched for managers. Benefits suck, company owns the insurance company. Not much training except in the first week of orientation.

    Advice to Management

    It doesn't matter, ownership doesn't take advice.

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

    Pros

    No pros at all for this company, ownership is awful, demeaning, no brains at all. Only decent thing is pay but the costly benefits eats away the money quickly

    Cons

    Everything! Ownership allows IT people that know nothing of the trucking industry to set policy and procedure. Most have never even seen a dock let alone work on one to know what it takes to run an operation. Being a terminal manager I know what it takes to run a terminal but I am regulated to a glorified clerical staff member with no operational control at all. This is a place LTL people go to die!

    Advice to Management

    Let your managers manage and get out of the way of the people that now what needs to be done.
