    Great for the terminal you hired in at.

    I worked at Con-way Freight full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Con-way was a great place to work. The benefits and advancement opportunities were awesome. They allowed managers the freedom to make decision that impacted the business while providing support.

    Pros

    Average salary for entry level management. Bonus structure and payouts were above average for the industry. Good leadership development program.

    Cons

    It is the trucking business, so long hours and overnights are the norm. Again, it is the transportation industry so moving around to be promoted is to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Continue developing young leaders.
