    Pros

    Good miles because dispatch has to meet there monthly miles. I've given this company and honest shake.

    Cons

    Preferred fuel solutions few and far between. Dispatch does not know your name. (If you can get ahold of them) If you have to call more then once in a day they will act like you are bothering them. They will send you loads that are hardly reasonable for your legal hours then complain about it not being there on time. Basically management is pushed by the top dispatch is pushed by management then the drivers are pushed by dispatch because everyones afraid to get fired by the CEO.

    Advice to Management

    Find a new place to work.

    I worked at Navajo Express full-time

    Pros

    Very hard working down to Earth lower level employees

    Cons

    Upper Management gets the most out of you by putting you down. Worries more about making money than taking care of customers.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like they are worth more than just making you more money. Take care of your customers and you will make your money in the long run.

    I worked at Navajo Express full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent salary, not top of the line but certainly fair

    Cons

    The owner's son runs the show now. He has a horrible temper, belittles and threatens. During morning meetings, he would frequently say that he knows he has a reputation for firing people for "little things" and followed it up by saying the reputation was correct, he'll fire everyone there and hire replacements and it doesn't matter. He would further follow that up with inviting his employees to go work for his competitors. He doesn't try to understand a situation before jumping to conclusions, you just have to hope you can put a reason out there before he utters the word "fired". I wouldn't recommend anyone work here.

    Advice to Management

    Get Jr out of there. He will drag the company into the ground with him.

    Pros

    Can't think of anything.

    Cons

    The senior leadership is simply not qualified to be in their positions. They are all extremely immature and combative, which has created a culture where everyone just fights, kicks, and screams. There is absolutely no level of respect when dealing with anyone. There is a level of fear throughout the organization that the owner's son will fire them at any waking moment, which has handicapped the entire company. Also, the technology is woefully behind, and there is no customer-first mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Change the culture. Get some good leaders and there and let them lead.

    Pros

    Lots of miles. Good starter company. Free coffee also a plus.

    Cons

    Mafioso style management gets old fast. Drivers have to plan for the planners. Dispatchers are caught in the middle and terrified of upper management. This is typical of carriers these days.

    Advice to Management

    You look stupid in that golf shirt..
