    I worked at McCollisters Transportation Systems full-time

    Pros

    Company has some very talented transportation professionals and most everyone is great to work with. You have to want to work hard to be successful here. When management is focused on a project or account they can do an excellent job.

    Cons

    Not sure where the direction of the company is going. Management seems to be losing touch with its core business. Hopefully the ship gets corrected soon. To much great history and people here.

    Pros

    Great family small to medium business culture, flexbility, nimble and quick to react to market and economic conditions - this far exceeds desire to meet customers needs , what ever they are, as quickly and safely as possible. From warehouse to transport and logistics, the incredible staff at all locations get it. We only succeed when we all succeed, from sales to drivers and warehouse, to operations to customer service, to billing and accounting. All work together

    Cons

    Changing volatile economy always means churn and change, just reality to keep a company profitable for over 75 years. Sad reality

    Advice to Management

    Continue to empower and recruit young incredible and strong leaders. Great future when current leaders pass on the knowledge to the young leaders.

    Pros

    Above average pay with decent benefits. Hard working employees outside of upper management.

    Cons

    Nepotism runs wild. SVP fires quality people and replaces them with his untrained and unqualified family. Wake up Dan McCollister, fools are ruining your business.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of people dedicated their lives to this company and were thrown aside when the board of UVL became more important. Don't let SVP's with their own agenda destroy what took many years to build. It took many people to help build this company, not just a few liars behind Dan's back.

    I worked at McCollisters Transportation Systems full-time

    Pros

    I had a great GM, and co-workers. The crews were so very nice and polite. I was able to do my job without anyone looking over my shoulder. When my husband was recovering from a major operation I was able to work from home during his home recovery. People in all branches had some amazing people.

    Cons

    Upper management should ask advise from key people from each department on where improvements could be made.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let go of your good people. Meet with staff in a more informal way. Keep working o your communication.

    Pros

    Some of the people are nice and helpful, they provide good insurance benefits and occasionally a free lunch.

    Cons

    Management is not consistent, Micro-managers in areas where they do not belong, many managers involved in the same jobs, each have a different approach and instruct to do something different. Some management is not qualified to be in their position. Good old boys club!

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate who is managing and their qualifications.
