    Pros

    Always growing and many opportunities

    Cons

    Forgot the GREAT people that built this company ... Saturday Spruce up at terminals volunteered for free... 60 mph trucks , no power steering, no A/C , Made due with what we had and built a successful company ... Management forgot all about this and the sacrifices the drivers made to build this company ...

    Advice to Management

    Maybe get back to the old company values and ethics that built this company into a powerful transportation entity ... This " NEW" way is slowly but most definitely making this company an also ran ... not the elite the original men and women built !

    I worked at Con-way Freight (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pay and hours were good

    Cons

    The company had no true sense of direction, but more of a "ready, fire, aim" approach

    Advice to Management

    Quit the LEAN stuff and just stick to what works. Listen to the customer and the employee and stop giving the farm away.

    Pros

    I really can't think of one

    Cons

    Not protected from the elements enough, Winters are extremely cold, no baffles to protect you from the wind and rain, if it snows, the snow, ice will blow in through the openings between the trailers and dock doors , the winters are brutal and you are still expected to somehow keep up a pace when your fingers are ready to fall off from cold! You have to use the exhaust from the forklifts to try and keep warm. Also when the smooth concrete floor gets icy or wet, you HAVE to move at a snail's pace because the tires are as slick as racing tires, no grip at all

    Summers

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN to employees and get with shippers that try to send pipes that roll and you cannot get under them with a forklift!
