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

    Pros

    Awesome co-workers Great pay Family atmosphere (at my terminal, anyway) Night dispatchers are fantastic! (I've never said that before!)

    Cons

    Bad equipment Bad maintenance Lack of supplies

    Advice to Management

    Put some money into your equipment. Some trucks are slow as molasses (61 mph), and others run 70+. Standardize at 70. Less fatigue, lower risk.

    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.

    Excellent company to work for, great benefits and great pay!

    Cons

    Hours started decreasing, I wanted to work more but work was limited to employees so I had to find another job. If I were able to maintain stable work I would still be there.

    Pros

    Great environment that fosters success at so many levels. Great equipment with outstanding operators. Endless opportunity for advancement. Great pay.

    Cons

    The only disadvantage is the handheld imaging technology, But as long as you have patience it won't really get you down.

    Advice to Management

    Do away with mobile imaging and lower cube on outbound to 70% and you will see profits rise exponentially. Trust me, think outside the box. P.S Great Job #1 LTL in the business.

    I have been working at Central Transport

    Pros

    Pay is great compared to other jobs in this industry

    Cons

    Benefits lacking- no pay raises in the last 4 years. What they pay you in salary they take in benefit costs. Salary people clock in, and you are not paid for being salary.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the people you pay to do what they are paid for.
