    Pros

    Good wage equipment better than others I've driven for. Would return to work if right opening comes available. Recommend as good job.

    Hours unpredictable plenty of work just hard to make plans for personal life. Dispatch needed to run routes to have better understanding of what p and d drivers are up against daily.

    Be more knowledgeable of daily struggle of dilivery drivers and appointment that cannot always be kept due to hold up at docks.

    I worked at Estes Express part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not many good things you can say about this job really. Other than pay, but even that is hard to say.

    Cons

    Very disorganized work place, you have forklifts crashing into one another. Freight being rammed into the trailers inside not properly strapped or air bagged. Damaged freight being shipped and not taken care of. I mean it's a mess! Coworkers were rude and impatient with the new guys. Absolutely horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Be more organized and careful with freight. Get rid of the workers that have a negative attitude and are careless with freight.
