    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, flexible schedule. Great training, there's really not much else to say about this company. They don't respect employees well

    Cons

    Management work for warehouse worker pay. Lack of employee recognition, lack of management support one mistake and it ruins your career

    Advice to Management

    Employee recognition

    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.
