    "Good company, but the "good ol boy" buddy system is in play. Don't expect promotions unless you're in the click."

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

    Pros

    Good Wages. The owner (Family Owned) is a good Christian man and is too trusting in who he has let run the regions under him. Got some real disappointing VPs.

    Cons

    Resources, Upper Management , Buddy System. Management has ridiculous expectations and you'd think they have never worked in the business before with the requests. Completely unaware of what it really takes to operate.

    Advice to Management

    They won't take advice. Any information you bring them is simply an excuse. I would not recommend anyone take an operational position with this company in this region.

    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

    Disapproves of CEO

    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
