    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...

    I worked at Central Transport full-time

    Pros

    There are no pros, I am required to put at least 5 words. I wouldn’t recommend this company to my worst enemy.

    Cons

    Flat out..this company does not care about their employees or customers. I have never seen a company treat people like Central Transport does. You will get better benefits and basic human courtesy anywhere else but here. If you work here you can expect: No support from your manager. RDS’s are no support or help at all. Wasted layer of management. You are out on a island doing this all on your own. Sinking. If...

    This section is a joke for CT because they do not care. Do not pay attention to their form HR response. It is all talk. They have said on here contact your HR partner, wait we had those? See above on opinion of HR. And management....what a joke. They do not want to hear from anyone.

    Pros

    -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 a year

    Pros

    Pay was very good for the job. You can make a schedule of when you want to visit people. You can work 3-5 hours visiting 10-12 accounts and be home checking emails and dealing with issues by 1-2.

    Cons

    Where to start. First of all if you are a woman good luck in this role, the industry is very male dominated and even if you feel unsafe at a location management will tell you to go back for the business. The majority of upper management is all old white males who have been at the top for years. Very old fashioned and stuck in the past. They do no even have direct deposit. Upper management will follow you maybe once every...

    I have been working at Central Transport full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Central provides a TON of room for growth, if you're willing to work hard. Co-workers are great, and it's a friendly atmosphere. The company is finally putting some money into renovating the office, which is nice to see!

    Cons

    Employee benefits are not the greatest: lack of direct deposit, no 401k match offered, benefits packages are pretty expensive, vacation time low compared to other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Offer a 401k match, better PTO time, etc.

    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.
