    Pros

    good pay and benefits, lots of works

    Cons

    long hours and no overtime to salary employees, cold warehouse with no heat. unsafe to work around lift trucks on floor. they are more focus on getting product out and not looking at the quality of the product.. nobody is happy at this place always fighting each other

    take better care of the employees and treat them better

    I worked at R+L Carriers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice people, Free Coffee, Generous Vacation and sick time

    Cons

    I was an account executive for Paramount Logistics, 17.36 hourly plus bonus. Bonus was only once a quarter and they made it very hard to get to that goal, we took every call for r and l in the nation very frustrating since we just had to transfer them and the customers ended up in an endless transfer cue.

    Advice to Management

    Pay better, pay for every sale, pay commissions more often, better health benefits. Get rid of that dumb rule that the only way to wear jeans on Friday that if you wear a company shirt.

    I have been working at R+L Carriers full-time

    Pros

    offers health, disability, accident, dental, vision,life, critical illness such a cancer, and prescription insurance
    flex account offered
    4 resorts to stay at for free (daytona, pigeon forge, willmington ohio, and big bear california
    hiden benefits you find out about as you stay at these places... for instance.... you can rent a boat (speed boats, pontoons etc.) you can even rent paddle boards to take with you for a day for free when you visit their daytona location. Just talk to the front desk clerk about reservations.
    3 personal days, 1 week vacation after a year, 2 weeks after 5, 3 weeks after 10
    paid bereavement (its either 2 or 3 days)

    Cons

    The health insurance is pricey for what you get... $40 a week for their worst option... $45 copays, $2,000/$4000 deductibles... $70 a week for best option... $30 copays, $1000/$3000 deductibles....
    But I dont blame R&L for that.... It was much cheaper till obama care kicked in and we had to pay more to cover all the free loaders that wants free government hadouts. dental and vision is separate.
    No overtime pay for drivers....

    I worked at R+L Carriers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very solid company privately held organization, they have a truly defined method of providing time sensitive LTL transportation services throughout the U.S.

    Cons

    Internal operations infrastructure is constantly in a disarray, the facility management and maintenance is usually a chore keeping under control,

    Advice to Management

    Delegate more responsibilities to the dispatch staff throughout all shifts, the weight should not be held to just a few whilst the majority take absolutely no ownership.

    I worked at R+L Carriers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The terminal i worked at everyone was fairly easy to get along with. They just got a new terminal manager which is the one that hired me. He seemed stern but very fair. Just wanted the best out his employees. Get your own truck same truck every day. You never have to work the dock. The pay is fair. You start out at 21.55, goes up after 90 days to 22.55, then another dollar raise at every year mark. I cant remember what top out was, i think 25 something. The real money is in linehaul, OTR. The dispatchers were very easy to get along with. If they see you hustling, volunteering for extra work, they will like you and keep you busy. I have nothing really bad to say about R&L. I just got my experience here and took an opportunity with a bigger and more recognized company.

    Cons

    No overtime, straight pay all the way.
    Late start time for new hire.
    Great family owned company but i feel a dead end job no room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    The management personnel i experienced was good. No advice everyone seemed to be doing a fair job.

    Pros

    Pay check is there every Friday and no problems. I do not ever foresee a shortage of work in this company

    Cons

    benefits could be better to compete with other companies. There are a few other companies offering more benefits at a lower cost

    Advice to Management

    Increase benefits or costs to stay current with other companies especially vacation and sick days to stay competitive
