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

    Pros

    Plenty of work in the city and you get a few hours working dock. If your a skilled driver then you make it easier on yourself dropping off and picking up freight. Supervisor and manager are good at what they do and you can call them at anytime for assistance. New trucks and getting more new trailers. Also good place to learn and get your driving experience. Home daily off weekends, Saturday’s volunteer work.

    Cons

    Wish I got paid by experience but they start new drivers at the same pay rate. Forklifts are beat up and not always functioning correct(some not all). Also wish we got paid per stop and for each pallet we pick up. Gotta work at least 9 to 10 hrs a day for a nice paycheck. A terminal with more space would help a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your drivers and they’ll take care of you.

    Pros

    Descent pay package. New trucks

    Cons

    Rude dispatchers. Trailers are in bad shape. Hand helds are really complicated at times.no direct deposit. Slow 62 mph trucks.

    No opinion of CEO

    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.

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

    Pros

    Good pay and new trucks.

    Cons

    They change policies about every month, so there is never any consistency. Drivers have to unload their own trailers and the dock manager can make you work other trailers that aren't yours whenever they feel like it. Mandatory Saturday and Sunday dock shifts that are announced 1 or 2 days beforehand. Management across the board is terrible. The open dock makes for cold days working 8-12 hour dock shifts in the winter....

    Show some consistency and some respect to the drivers. Fight to get direct deposit for your employees.
