    Pros

    There is a family environment and everyone is very helpful and we all get along. Senior management leads by example and treat everyone with respect.

    Cons

    It is a large company and sometimes good people get lost and end up leaving. There can be a better emphasis on supervisor training that can lead to better retention.

    Advice to Management

    Keep treating everyone like a family member and continue to train on proper communication between employees and management. Continue to be visible throughout the whole company.

    Pros

    Top notch equipment, locations, and freight. On site mechanics fix issues in minutes, not hours. Dispatch answers phone, no waiting around on hold. Pay and benefits excellent, management cares about the employees.

    Cons

    Using federal transportation regulation loopholes to aviod paying local drivers overtime until you reach 12 hours a day, or 60 or more in a week. Standard practice within the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Give pickup and delivery drivers sales training across all of the services we provide, and give us bonuses for adding additional sales. Upsell!!

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. 401k excellent, and great equipment.

    Cons

    There is a buddy system at this job. Not the company as a whole, just the Richland, MS location. Rules and terms apply only to some, not everyone. Not sure why they even have a handbook.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone fairly all across the board.

    I have been working at Old Dominion Freight full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Starting pay around $17.50/hr and after a year you'll be up to about $22.50/hr. The dock supervisors are good. Most of them have been in your shoes at one point in our terminal. Best priced benefit package I've seen for health, dental, and other perks that I do not take advantage of.

    Cons

    If full time you will have 50hr work week in five 10hr days. tough hours, usually graveyard shift for new hires. You're exposed to the elements you'll have no paid time off for the first year and requesting a day off in that time can be like pulling teeth.

    Advice to Management

    more straps, only those who work here will understand
