I have been working at Con-way Freight full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Pay is great, especially for unskilled labor in our area. Mileage pay when you drive linehauls. Hourly pay when you work the dock, overtime after 8 hours (almost unheard of around here). Three weeks PTO after just a couple years. Profit sharing and 401k contributions. Our terminal provides food and refreshments every couple of weeks, especially when extremely hot or cold. Regular communication meetings between drivers and management. Lots of newer trucks now, xm radios and a/c, way better than equipment used just a couple years ago. Lots of attention being focused on safety, which is generally good. Home every day, ten hours off at least. Really happy most of the time.

Cons

Dock pay is a little lower per hour than non-union conpetitors in the area. Lots of the trucks are still worn out junk. Takes a long time to move up to higher paying linehaul runs, 5 to 10 years sometimes. Freeze your but in the winter time. Not much time for family depending on job selection, especially when freight levels are high.

Advice to Management

Focus on what works and forget some of the other stuff like electronic onboard recorders (electronic logs) and

    "Too many top executives looking at numbers, not at the actual operation."

    I have been working at Con-way Freight full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is ok..I love the family feel. Get to know people personally.

    Cons

    Too much upper management. They like to micro manage by running reports. They give the same goals to alll Service Centers, regardless of size and miles that need to be traveled.

    Advice to Management

    Do away with Scorecards. I would love to go back to being praised for great profits, and talking about positive things, instead of feeling beat down everyday.
