    Pros

    Cool logistics, you work with awesome people in your department, the company’s successful, a lot to explore in the building, some flexibility,

    Cons

    You can tell the Managers and Directors try to make work better and fun but the senior management is really disconnected and good ole boy. Lots of turnover sometimes even in management. Dealing with drivers every day can get tough and not everyone understands that. Be ready to be on the phone a lot. Pay isn’t that good. Other people not in driver management can be hard to work with. They offer bonuses and incentives but won’t do much to your normal salary.

    Pros

    I've worked in the corporate offices of Covenant Transport for over two years now, and I have to say that as far as the people, management, and culture are concerned it's one of the best places I've ever worked.

    Cons

    Possibly due to the people-focused culture, the business processes and productivity standards can be lacking.
