    Pros

    great pay. laid back atmosphere. good bennies.

    Cons

    can have very long days with short turn-arounds. makes for short night if you work 13-14 hours, need to drive home, eat dinner, and then be back at work 10 hours later. Can't do much else except sleep & work during your 5 days on, forget about having hobbies as a linehaul driver.

    I have been working at Old Dominion Freight full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have the best memories of my life at work and with coworkers outside of work. Most of my really good friends are the people I work with. Great pay. Great hours. Fair work, but demanding. Great manager. Honest people and great experience. They weren't afraid to put me out on the dock as a supervisor at the age of 19. They showed me what I was doing wrong when I did it wrong and now I train all the employees on new information as we get it and I help out whoever I can when they need it. You have a boss but usually you are your own boss and they expect you hold yourself to a high standard.

    Cons

    Dock workers work split shifts. Sometimes work 14-20 hours in one day.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Great Pay, Great Employees, Old Management weeded out the bad apples and got fired for doing the right thing.

    Cons

    New Management after 30 years, want to change the culture in terrible ways.

    Stick to the old ways that made the workers proud to come into work each day, now you show up and feel afraid for your job.
