    I worked at Estes full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good equipment if you a young driver if not you get the junkies garbage on their lot

    Cons

    I hired on as a TRUCK DRIVER. They kept me busy in the summer months. Between Thanksgiving and after the first of the yea I was only able to work enough to keep them from having to pay unemployment. I had NO dock experience but I was FORCED to work the dock or lose my benefits they constantly complained that I wasnt working fast enough on their dock even though I told them IM A TRUCK DRIVER NOT A DOCK WORKER

    Advice to Management

    Treat ALL of your employees right. Not screw them over.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Estes full-time

    Pros

    Portland terminal has tough but fair leadership. Starting pay is very competitive on the dock and there are opportunities for dock workers to move into hostling and driver positions that pay really well. Health insurance isn't bad. They find hours for the dock workers when it's lean. I worked graveyard and that crew is really cohesive and friendly. Really good experience

    Cons

    Overtime for dock workers doesn't start until after 48 hours worked in a week.
