    I have been working at Forward Air full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They have good main lines but bad dispatch

    Cons

    Dispatch lies to ya will not move you if you are single driver dispatch tends to take loads off you to much favoritism is truly in company to many short hauls no long runs

    Advice to Management

    Fire all dispatch and hire new and hire local driver for short hauls and they r only ones that should be dedicated

    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.
