    I have been working at Red Classic Transportation Services full-time

    Pros

    Growing, Great Customer base, Good co-workers, Company usually makes the effort of supporting the employees.

    Cons

    Space is limited in shop. Problems are not met with solutions in some instances (Personal & Shop-Wide).

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support technicians by providing meals, tools, bonuses, etc. Training is always a plus. Try to make the effort to solve all problems, whether shop-wide or just on a personal level for each person.

    Pros

    Nice coworkers. The company is trying to get it together but they have a ways to go. Pay is decent. Free beverages.

    Cons

    I've worked in hectic environments, but this was daily chaos. No real training. Management hardly ever around. Employees who only worked there a few momths conducting training classes. So many emails you barely have time to answer one before 10 other people are asking for a follow-up. Unprofessional management laying on desks and using profanity by phone and email.

    Advice to Management

    This could be a good company in about a year or so. Stop taking on new business if the employees can barely handle the workload as it is. There are better methods of receiving and distributing work besides an avalanche of unread emails.

    I worked at Red Classic Transportation Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great family atmosphere. Every one was nice to work with. Some people were very helpful with team work. Also great place to work

    Cons

    A lot of manual work due to old system. Systems need a major upgrade. Very post reactive to problems. Nothing is really done in the beginning to prevent problems down the line. Need more process documentation. Will work you to death and not hire more people to assist. Always felt like more stuff was thrown on my plate, with no raise. They felt like overtime would suffice.

    Advice to Management

    Smile more and talk to the employees more to see what they are dealing with day to day. Don't just wait for them to come to you. We notice when things are stressful, but Management doesn't talk much to the employees to let them know what is going on. Also listen to the employee when they do tell you what is wrong and address it.

    I thoroughly enjoyed being a broker for this company. The compensation is great, and have consistent freight to keep you busy. This is a Coca-Cola Bottling backed company, so you have fantastic support

    Pros

    Fast growing company. Great environment. Supportive leadership. Many opportunities. Part of a larger company backed by the Coca Cola brand.

    Cons

    Needs better systems. Still trying to create efficient processes. Sometimes the growth created confusion. Really no downside other than growing pains associated with rapid growth.

    Advice to Management

    Align growth to process and systems capabilities. Keep encouraging staff. Continue to invest in staff development.

    I worked at Red Classic Transportation Services part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice equipment if your domiciled from a non end of the line location. Uniforms. Newer line haul trailers. Electronic logs.

    Cons

    Large turn over of supervisors and dispatch planners. Most new people hired to manage are inexperienced and when they begin to understand they get fired or quit. I had seven supervisors in four years. Ccbcc the parent company seems oblivious to the actions of their trucking company. Drivers work an average of two hours per trip for no pay.

    Advice to Management

    Rehire the former coca cola transport people. Some of the best people I have ever worked for. They may have been expensive but they cared about the company. The employees and customer service.
