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

    Pros

    Old Dominion salaries are very competitive & MANAGEMENT team on MY SHIFT are GREAT. Co-workers are always willing to help others. Would definitely recommend this company.

    Cons

    I don't really have any BIG CONS w/ company other than SOME forklifts might not be fully operational. (Scales/Scanner)
    When I began my employment w/ OD part time we were given 15 minute breaks, they ENDED BREAKS about 2years ago for part-timers. Your first three months will make you or BREAK you.

    Advice to Management

    As I stated earlier Management on my shift are great. But, on other SHIFTS a few (2) lack interpersonal skills & show favoritism to other dock workers.

    Pros

    They have good pay, and are really approachable. I'm a linehaul driver, and they keep good equipment, also there's a really positive attitude amongst all employees.

    Cons

    If you're a line driver, the wait is extremely long to get a bid run.

    Advice to Management

    Get more linehaul runs.
