    I have been working at Ergon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy work. 3 weeks of vacation after only 5 years.

    Cons

    Very political. Medical benefits aren't great. Men are valued more than women. No room to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Don't talk about religion or politics at work. It's not good for business.

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

    Pros

    Excellent hourly wage for a truck driver. This company makes almost unbelievable profits.

    Cons

    Working over the regulated hours of service, shift work, everyone makes the same wages no matter how many loads you pull and how few they do, medical benefits are shabby at best and cost a fortune, management playing favorites (the drivers that do less are the favorites, buddy's outside of work, you know how it goes) it causes alot of friction between drivers, knowing the people in the office down the street make more than you and have a sweet 40 hour work week and easy, relaxing days with no weekend work and no shift work. High turn over rate even for what you make hourly, that should tell you something. You drive tractor trailers and tri-axles places even 4 wheel drive trucks can't go. Nerves of hardened steel are needed.

    Advice to Management

    Drivers should be some of the best paid and best treated, they bring in the products that literally make the company.

    I worked at Ergon full-time

    Pros

    Good pay. Very laid back about work schedule.

    Cons

    Very inconsistent management. Too many chiefs and not enough indians. Managers have their "chosen ones" and if you aren't one, then don't expect to be given other opportunities within the company.

    Pros

    People are knowledgeable and good to work with. The job is very challenging and you get to work on a variety of different things.

    Cons

    You won't get a promotion if you are not completely dedicated to Ergon. Salary can be competitive, but not always the best.

    Advice to Management

    Provide opportunities for employees to develop across all business segments. Make the work completed a higher priority than the hours worked.
