    I have been working at Florida Rock and Tank Lines full-time

    Pros

    I honestly can't think of anything.

    Cons

    Low pay, understaffed in every area (but that's how the big guys at the top like it). Unprofessional atmosphere. A great company for people who have no life outside of work.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees. Act as if they mean something to you. Happy employees do good work.

    I worked at Florida Rock and Tank Lines (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It’s a job.......there nothing more than to say than that, you get experience and trust me before you walk through the door you already have the job.

    Cons

    It’s the worst job imaginable, you only get the guarantee pay if you have every single card at the port, work 6 days and all 14 hours on the clock without turning down a single load even if it puts you pass your dot regulated time! To top it off the guarantee pay is only 850 before taxes! The insurance is a joke! There’s no co pay, instead a deductible of 500 dollars that you must pay before the insurance covers any bill. The equipment breaks down constantly and terminal manager covers it up with poor mechanic work, and I almost forgot to mention that the supervisor is a foul mouth racist who is more than un-professional on a daily basis. You can apply if you think I’m lying but you will regret it in a months time.

    Advice to Management

    Quit so the terminal can become a better place

    Pros

    one of the best trucking jobs i experience. As long as you get as many fuel cards, you will be fine. Plenty of work

    Cons

    schedule remains the same, and safety hires company to follow you around while you are drive.

    Advice to Management

    have rotating weekends

    I have been working at Florida Rock and Tank Lines full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I can't think of a single good thing.

    Cons

    Bad management stating from the top. They preach about how they care, but do not care or take care of their people and they scratch their heads why turnover is so high. 3 out 4 people quit within a short period. Senior people are those over a year. McDonalds has lower turnover that this place.
    CEO only complains to us, never say anything encouraging or EVER comes to see us or treats us like we matter to him. NO accountability of management. Almost all of them are "Yes" men. Computer system crashes every other day.

    Advice to Management

    get out of your office, actually listen to those on the front lines. MAYBE... Think about what would it take to make this a great place to be instead of wondering what little detail we can cover for you today...

    I worked at Florida Rock and Tank Lines full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good medical insurance and other options

    Cons

    They do not pay their drivers what they deserve! This makes it difficult to retain and hire!

    Advice to Management

    Stop paying yourself so much and take care of the rest of your employees! Dispatchers are on call and do not have a work/life balance, so it ishard to keep good people!

    I have been working at Florida Rock and Tank Lines full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay is slightly higher than average- for a reason.

    Cons

    Upper management and Executive level adhere to no rules, no culture standards, and do very little actual work. I can only think of one exception in this group.
    So many people give up countless hours of hard work each week and are ignored so the higher ups can bring in their friends and family.

    Advice to Management

    Though advice is hardly heard within this company- listen to the people who are actually DOING the work & making the wheels turn.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain your equipment, listen to your driver needs and concerns and don't lie to them every Saftey meeting
