    I worked at Old Dominion Freight full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay,decent dispatchers except for rampant favoritism

    Cons

    On call for years,doing exactly what your asked to do, no complaining, perfect safety, 0%ROI,and they over ran a bunch of rookies off the doc&ran them through their driving school, put them in linehaul&over hired pre Covid, then layed off quality experienced drivers& kept the rookies on for post Covid & let the good drivers with lots of experience go. It’s a great job for sheeple people.lots of favoritism shown to dock workers training to drive. Or family members get priority.

    I have been working at Old Dominion Freight full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    When you work pay is good, benefits are OK and equipment is newer.

    Cons

    Management in Columbus is not up to par, they over hired and under appreciate. expect you just to hang onto whatever they give you as an explanation. when COVID-19 hit they furloughed over 30 employees telling them that we will come back after 90 days. And they had no communication after the furlough we had to call them to find out all the details. if any questions came up they would not contact us, we had to contact them . we even had to contact them to know that we were getting laid off permanently. We were told they were gonna bring us back after 90 days and we would keep our seniority. they cut us all free early and told us we could reapply for our jobs in the future and also took guys off the dock train them even though they have less experience and kept them all on they don’t treat you the way you deserve look somewhere else.
