Pros

- Great team to work with.
- Management are excellent to work with. Very open to communication. Very understanding.
- Great benefits and pay. Nothing to complain there.
- Always get the avg amount of miles per week or more.
- Many helpful departments and cool staff.
- Nice equipment, nice trucks.
- Awesome terminals, showers, laundry rooms, living rooms, cafeteria's.
- Dispatcher's are awesome. Can't ask for a better team of cool people.
- Treated with respect. It goes both ways. Do not forget that!
- They care. Especially If you have a family and kids. Thanks guys!

Cons

- I'm thinking...
- To be honest, I have only worked for one transport company in my life. This one. Cannot compare to other companies..
- Trucks are not equipped with generator's. This is the only thing I dislike. I would love to have a generator to reduce Idling for A/C. For heat, we have bunk heaters.

Advice to Management

Punish the workers who constantly refuse loads or dispatch, the ones who complain all the time and have all sorts of excuses. The drivers who cause problems for management. The ones who think they are their own boss. Get rid of the very bad apples.
Compensate the hard workers. The ones who do a good job, who never say no unless they have a really good reason. The ones who don't complain and respect management. The drivers that are honest and open.
Team work is key. ;-)

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Challenger Motor Freight full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fun place to work as the people are nice.

    Cons

    Not stable as was layed off with 50 other employees. No career growth. You are pigeon holed into what you were hired for.

    Advice to Management

    Next time, make sure you lay off the people that don't deserve to be there instead of the ones that worked hard for the drivers and the company. Your left with attendance and attitude problems so good luck with that.
