    Pros

    Good place to work especially being an agent or independent broker because corporate lets u control your own business while still providing any support you need.

    Cons

    Even though they have 200+ agents all working under the same umbrella it feels like 200 individual companies because agents rarely work together mainly due to greed.

    Advice to Management

    If u want to get agents to work together and grow Greatwide as a whole then you should be willing to lose some commission as well. Instead of putting it all on the agents to work out the % split you should be willing to give a little as well.

    Pros

    Decent pay, most runs home same day. Layover runs back next day for our operation. Mostly new fleet of trucks, decently maintained. Many runs are little to no touch. Detention pay after two hours for store deliveries and backhauls. Stop pay plus mileage pay. Motels paid if you are in a daycab.

    Cons

    No bid process for runs. You don't know what you are doing the next day until dispatch calls. Many runs are driver assist, either by operating a pallet jack, or pushing while the customer operates pallet jack. Some runs are good, some are hardly worth the commute to the warehouse. Trucks are governed at 62-63 mph. Runs fluctuate when business slows, which is good if you want another day off, but bad if you want to run hard.

    Advice to Management

    Set runs, or days off for proven hard working, and safe drivers. Better communication about policy changes.

    I worked at Greatwide Logistics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Greatwide is made up of some very dedicated, hard-working individuals. The work allows a lot of autonomy to "run your business" and with that a lot of responsibility! you will learn a ton working with these folks. Pay is very competitive, you just have to negotiate.

    Cons

    Work/Life Balance does not exist. It Transportation and its a skeleton crew, so you will get the calls in all hours of the night and weekends. and Operations "owns" safety so you will have a ton of Safety duties on top of your Operations work. Cutting out a chunk of time for vacations can be difficult to impossible. and if you go, dont think you are going without your company smartphone and laptop... because you will be!

    Advice to Management

    Try and remember that your field operatives need a break now and then and actually help them to get it. Otherwise, upper management is on the right path for the most part.... just dont forget the human aspect of your teams.
