    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Colonial Freight Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great equipment provided, Great pet policy, Allowed to be independent. Shop was fantastic and very safety oriented.

    Cons

    Routing was ill planned. Could not keep busy enough. Always doing favors for other drivers,resulting in lost monies. Senior management seems to not know what is going on day to day. Absolutely clueless dispatcher and disconnected dispatch manager.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire teams if you can't keep them busy enough. Drivers should not have to beg for miles.
