    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Forward Air

    Pros

    Good benefits. For some workers it was decent pay. Drivers you work with are mostly awesome to deal with. Some co-workers were great.

    Cons

    Company only cares about the bottom line. Lazy employees that hide to avoid work. Working with equipment that didn't work properly or not at all. Hours are not set. You work til done. No acknowledgement for coming in early and staying late to make sure things get done.

    Advice to Management

    Employees make the company. Its not only about the bottom line. Take care of the people that make your company what it is.

    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.
