    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Estes Express full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay is about the only pro

    Cons

    Terrible work conditions (at least here in Ga) want salaried employees to work a crazy amount of hours. No bonus no incentives weren't even allowed to take a lunch break (which for me being on the night shift was a dinner break) terrible place to work

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better

    I worked at Estes Express full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay was comparable to union pay scale. Incentive program for work free injuries was nice. The gifts were great. Christmas gifts were cool also.

    Cons

    No tuition reimbursement. No modern technology. Dirty open dock. No overtime pay unless you work 62 hours in one pay period. (Old agriculture law of the late 1940's). Favoritism in management
