    I worked at Forward Air full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great Freight Lanes and plenty of work

    Cons

    All freight ran overnight and the Truck Is paid very low rates. Hard to make a good living working for them.

    Advice to Management

    Change how loads are dispatched and Pay adequate rates so owner operators can survive working for your company at least $ 1.50 to 1.85 per mile.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Forest Park, GA

    I worked at Forward Air full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I can't really see any but the benefits. finally got everyone up to normal pay scale - cheap company.

    Cons

    VERY DISORGANIZED; LOT OF NEPOTISM, FAVORITISM, DIRTY WORK SPACES, REALLY LOUD PEOPLE, REAL OUTDATED EQUIPMENT, THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT THEIR EMPLOYEES unless you are related, kiss butt, managers are way too young without a clue of what they're doing, lots of turnover. not worth the pay with people like that. you are only a number,

    Advice to Management

    Get your employees under control, you are rewarding ones that don't do anything but have a title, don't hire relatives that work closely together, be fair, management has their little pets and if you're not one you lose, lots of backstabbing and gossip needs to be addressed. Atlanta is the worst terminal and even customers complained. They've gone through 3 different terminal managers in 3 years horrible company -...
