    We're so happy to read your positives! There is a two week processing period for payroll to ensure a high level of quality assurance and reduce errors. Instead of thinking of it as 2 weeks behind - think of it as 2 more weeks of pay coming your way! :)

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

    Pros

    There are no pros at all.

    Cons

    OT starts after 55th hour, No direct deposit, benefits are trash, can't clock out before 7pm without permission, if you're back before that you have to unload trucks until.

    Advice to Management

    How is someone that isn't from NY and isn't a former truck driver in charge of truck drivers in NY?

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

    Pros

    Dispatcher is now at terminal and we can do face to face every day. New tractors and ownership has committed and kept their word buying new trailers every year. We have some now at home terminal in Texas. Outstanding! Always room for advancements and internal postings let us know what opportunities are available for current employees.

    Cons

    No vision benefits. Trailers old and need to make sure a thorough pre-trip and post trip is done as supposed to be. No direct deposit and 2 weeks in the hole. it is a rough financial start! PAY CAN BE MORE COMPETITIVE

    Advice to Management

    Keep caring about the drivers and making positive changes to improve service and maintain a good work environment.

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

    Pros

    Home every day, good pay if you have a good route. People are super friendly, especially corporate. No micromanagement.

    Cons

    Safety is non-existent, trailers are garbage, hours can be long, inefficient operations, paid by the load, not the mile like all the other ltl carriers.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to be some oversight at each terminal for safety and compliance. Need more people in management because current management is overworked. Terminals are old and in bad shape, need to spend some money on upkeep and have maintenance on staff. Need to pay drivers per mile based on experience level and longevity with the company.

    I worked at Central Transport full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    They don't push you too hard. Mainly because they've lost so many accounts. They have bought some new trucks. They did go to BC/BS insurance.

    Cons

    They cut everyone's hours to 40 or less. I assume to pay for the new trucks. No one gets over 45 hours and everyone starts at 9:30am.

    Advice to Management

    Return drivers hours.
