    I have been working at Forward Air for less than a year

    Pros

    The lease purchase program will help you get started owning a truck but dispatch will make you quit and go broke

    Cons

    If you are a new driver they will let you sitting around to much favoritism you'll be lucky to get 2500 miles a week. Trust me I work for a owner operator and I still have to fight with dispatch at time's to get me rolling.

    I have been working at Forward Air full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They have good main lines but bad dispatch

    Cons

    Dispatch lies to ya will not move you if you are single driver dispatch tends to take loads off you to much favoritism is truly in company to many short hauls no long runs

    Advice to Management

    Fire all dispatch and hire new and hire local driver for short hauls and they r only ones that should be dedicated

    I have been working at Forward Air full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very nice people and they do not micromanage you

    Cons

    You sit for hours,... example... I dropped at 3:30 on the 16th with 5.5 hrs left on my 11 and 42 left on my 70 they give me an assignment 7.6 miles from my drop but the kicker is its pick up time is 8pm the night of the 18th i sat available for over 24 hrs. They only allow you to make the min. Pay miles and if you don't make the miles they take out of the owners pocket to get you min. Guarantee pay up to where it needs...

    Advice to Management

    Fire all your planners and get people in there that cares and understands that the driver cant just live off the min. When they want to run and earn the pay they get get people who knows how to do there jobs.
