    I worked at Forward Air full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Solid pay with very good benefits and incentive programs; good opportunity to move up within the organization as they continue to grow; top-notch, seasoned middle and senior management professionals who provide an opportunity for employees to learn and develop as professionals. Great culture and great people.

    Cons

    One of the FA mantra's is "Work hard, play hard; but work always comes first" As a FA employee you will have good opportunity to go above and beyond and advance within the company, but be prepared to work long hours and pay your dues to the company first as that is how the leaders of the company got to where they are today: with many years of hard work beginning at the ground level.

    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.
