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

    Pros

    Pay was good. Benefits are good. Had a great terminal manager and operations manager.

    Cons

    The hours were a bit much to me. Training seemed rushed. You're doing multiple things all at once. Only reason why I left was because of health issues.

    Advice to Management

    I had no issues with management. Training could be better and not rushed.

    I worked at Estes Express full-time

    Pros

    Reasonable pay, hard working people

    Cons

    Good old boy mentality, weak technology, lack of forward thinking, abrasive management

    Advice to Management

    Move forward, the technology is dismal compared to the competition. They need to use modern companies as benchmarks as opposed to Estes Express circa 1995 as a benchmark
