    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Forest Park, GA

    I worked at Forward Air full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I can't really see any but the benefits. finally got everyone up to normal pay scale - cheap company.

    Cons

    VERY DISORGANIZED; LOT OF NEPOTISM, FAVORITISM, DIRTY WORK SPACES, REALLY LOUD PEOPLE, REAL OUTDATED EQUIPMENT, THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT THEIR EMPLOYEES unless you are related, kiss butt, managers are way too young without a clue of what they're doing, lots of turnover. not worth the pay with people like that. you are only a number,

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Forward Air part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great work environment Strong teamwork mentality Management that cares about you as a person, not just as an employee Competitive pay and pay increase structure (even for part time)

    Cons

    The work can be physically taxing Hours can be long (pro if you need the $$) Other terminals (Columbus) seem to care less about how freight is shipped to you

    Advice to Management

    Step up quality management among all terminals, including your hubs. I have seen so much inventory senselessly destroyed because of cut corners on the loading of trailers.
