I have been working at Forward Air full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Such a great atmosphere Always a positive energy in the air along with a good vibe which makes the work day go so much smoother and its rare to see that in a warehouse environment

Cons

Supervisors are so quick to point out the little things that need improvement, that's because the more important things like load factor and cut off times for certain destinations have never been a problem, and when we ask for a raise they never give us a straight answer. I don't mind going another year without a raise all I'm asking for is an explanation on why raises won't be given this year. We deserve that much at least

Advice to Management

In the few years I been working here I've seen a lot of people come and go most of them being the best dockworkers this terminal has ever seen and little by little they keep losing great employees. if corporate approved on decent raises then maybe people will stop quitting. But there to busy buying out there competitors so it must've slipped there mind. Good Job Guys

    I worked at Forward Air full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Really, the only aspect I liked at FAS was the handful of decent employees. But, that was the 5%. Definitely not enough to keep me.

    Cons

    OMG...too many to list. Employee to employee violence. Unsafe conditions. I reported into an employer who does not empower the Management team. I was constantly undermined and never awarded the authority/autonomy to make this a great place to work. We never gave any employees a raise. We dangled FT employment as a carrot to get "more" out of employees but rarely rewarded. Top performers were given more hours, but still at a low pay rate. The supervisory staff were assigned based on "best available option" rather than actually seeking out the most qualified employees. I have never been associated with a Company so morally deplorable. I truly wish I had NEVER accepted this position.

    Advice to Management

    Really, I could give tons of advice. But, FAS is very clear that they are not interested.
