    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 a year

    Pros

    Competitive starting pay but that's about the only positive thing about this place.

    Cons

    Lies from anyone in a management position, no direct deposit, payroll likes to screw you often, their benefits communication is convoluted and confusing, the entire company is built to be a scam, NOBODY is held accountable.

    Advice to Management

    This place was a garbage heap from the start. Most of the trailers this company puts on the road are barely legel, if at all. Broken side posts? Put some trailer tape on it and let it roll. Hole in the trailer? Put some trailer tape on it and let it roll? Damaged rail and radius with aluminum ripped open? Put some trailer tape on it and let it roll. The repair standards are horrible, and doing it fast and loose gets rewarded...

    -Paycheck -Guys at the terminal are awesome

    Cons

    Where to even start. Unless you are desperate for a paycheck, steer clear. They will try and give you a large base salary to get you to work for them, and they will not deliver on anything they promise. They cycle through people like trash and do not care about the employees working for them. -No matter what they say about "trying to change the reputation of Central", they continually screw customers over.

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

    Pros

    Honestly a great pay scale. Good environment and team. If you know what LTL shipping is, this isn't a bad company at all. Come to work, do your job and you will have no issues at all.

    Cons

    No direct deposit. Technology could use improvements. Although I see why most decisions are made at the GO, I think terminal management should be able to have more control.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in new computers across the board. New handhelds that keep up with demand. Trust the terminal management more. If they can't handle running a terminal effectively send them packing.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Fair wage, advancement if willing to relocate.

    Cons

    Horrible terminal management, high turnover, equipment in poor condition, facility in poor shape, no direct deposit, long hours, schedule change with little notice, expected to work on major holiday with no holiday pay, low morale, no culture, no

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with respect. Dock workers, switchers and supervision get the job done. This allows the doors to stay open, and you to collect a check. Stop working them like dogs and treating them like numbers.

    I worked at Central Transport part-time

    Pros

    There is room for advancement if you work there long enough and show extra effort. They provide a free lunch a few times a year. There are many genuinely good “salt of the earth” people who work there.

    Cons

    As others have said, the benefits are essentially non-existent. You have to pay quite a bit to cover the health insurance premium. Paid time off is not at all generous. The company does not provide any type of retirement contribution. There is no direct deposit. It’s a family company and favoritism is rampant. Many employees in leadership positions are unprofessional and (I’m...
