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

    Pros

    Co workers are very friendly and are not bad at all. If your a dock worker in Charlotte, NC you will get paid 15.00 an hr. If your a switcher for this company in Charlotte, NC you will be paid 16.00 an hr.

    Cons

    Management is horrible. Very unorganized and unprofessional. If you can as a truck driver I would advise you to make this your last resort if your looking for local work or otr work. If your a dock worker please avoid this place if you can they treat dock works and the switchers like crap. You have to be on standby to work at least 6 days a week. In which they say your off on Saturdays and Sundays if you work the pm shift....

    Advice to Management

    Get with the times get direct deposit and have respect for your workers. Without the dock workers and switchers you can't get much of anything on the dock done. Also you guys need to be on the same page and be more professional. Stop making everything difficult than what it has to be it's not that hard people.

    I have been working at Central Transport full-time

    Pros

    Competitive salary for a supervisory role if you negotiate properly. Also there are weekends off.

    Cons

    Where should I begin? The micromanaging at this company is ridiculous. Supervisors and managers have little to no control over the operation. As a supervisor I am basically a dock worker who has to answer phone calls and check emails. Any idea I come up with to help the operation is not taken into to consideration. Everything is done through corporate so if you want to simply close out a trailer you have to call corporate...

    Advice to Management

    Give some responsibility and power to your field operations management. Let the managers and supervisors at the terminals close their own trailers out. Give the employees the right tools to complete their tasks. Listen to what the employees are saying, they are the ones out there moving your freight.

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

    Pros

    The only pro I can honestly say this company has, was the other dock workers I worked with, as a group we worked like a well oiled machine and its a shame they treated us like crap

    Cons

    The company was just a mess, the dock workers were constantly being bullied by our "supervisors" who couldnt take the time to step out of there lovely office to help us address and fix a problem. Instead we were left to fend for ourselves.
