    Pros

    Excellent pay, good benefits. Management was easy to get along with at the time. Although, since I have left there is a new terminal manager and a lot of changes in other upper management positions as well.

    Cons

    The terminal I worked at there wasn't really a lot negatives except with the shop. The shop manager was very difficult to deal. It would take sometimes a call to management to get anything fixed.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure dock workers are trained properly.

    Pros

    You can make a lot of money here if you are willing to work. Medical insurance is above average.

    Cons

    The vacation policy is the worst in the industry. They claim to have an open door policy, but although the door is always open, they are in no way interested in solving either their or your issues. When you walk through the door, their primary concern is how to get you out. They treat their customers the same way which makes working as a city driver an unpleasant experience. Management is, for the most part, very unprofessional and completely devoid of leadership skills. They are arrogant and condescending. I would look elsewhere for employment if I was just starting out.

    Advice to Management

    Take some leadership courses.

    Pros

    Great company to work for! They promote from within, and they give great support to sales reps. Estes is growing fast and is a very stable company. Good pay and benefits! Must be motivated to work here. if you are not self driven... you will fail!

    Cons

    Many changes happening all the time from a local to corporate level. This is not necessary a con.

    Advice to Management

    Let your employees know that they are valued (at all levels) and appreciated and continue noticing improvements. This is a great company to work for and I have no bad words to say about the company itself.
