    I worked at Frozen Food Express full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some good people to work with that deserve better leadership

    Cons

    Dishonest upper management. Do NOT trust what they say.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees. Your not going to turn a profit by laying off a few office workers and dock workers. They all know the ultimate goal is to centralize all operations at the corporate facility.

    I have been working at Frozen Food Express part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay for entry-level. Meet some interesting people, hear great stories. Hour lunch break depending on the department you're in.

    Cons

    Not understanding to school schedule if you're a student. Training experience is poor, must shadow someone which isn't always the best if they're not up to teaching you. Management is out for themselves. No room for advancement unless you're a favorite.

    Advice to Management

    PLEASE update your systems and develop specific classes for areas to train in.

    I worked at Frozen Food Express full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good loads, decent miles, worked with a varied bunch of folks - it's truck driving...my driver manager was great - we got along really well.

    Cons

    Again, it's truck driving...you're away from home, pay could be better - miles tended to be taken away because others "needed hometime" but would be hard to get a load when it was my time to go home.

    Pros

    well known Temp controlled Carrier

    Cons

    well known Temp controlled Carrier

    Advice to Management

    Inconsistent Management where the employees are retaliated against for comments to the "so called" HR safe-haven. Hopefully things will change when and if the current ownership is briefed and brought up to date.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    fair equpment, decent freight,steady old line shippers still trying to maintain a good business relationship and wiling to make every attempt to remain a good business partner ship

    Cons

    new managment apparently doesn't care about old steady employees and customers only looking for a quick fix and short term profit.doesn'tthink about employee contentment or loyalty and what it takes to retain it.

    Advice to Management

    wake up and read the writing on the wall. constant change and divisevness will not help main tain employee loyalty nor help to instill confidence among shippers

    Pros

    It is close to home

    Cons

    They change employee work schedules without consideration for family
    5 or 6 paid holidays but you must work them. We used to get the day off.
    Pay is very low and not competitive
    The employees are older so that they can take advantage of them realizing that they need to work.
    Management is not knowledgeable of office but makes major changes without knowing details and how it affects the position It was much better before he was promoted.
    No 401K match and extremely high insurance. They pay about 10% and employee pays 90%

    Blatant use of obscenities in the office is allowed by Management.

    Advice to Management

    Change the current management. They may be knowledgeable in their prior job, but not in the office.

    Improve on our benefits and don't intimidate employees.
