    "WHERE ARE THE DRIVER'S REVIEWS"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Versailles, OH
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Versailles, OH

    Pros

    Two driver reviews is all???

    Cons

    As a driver, I could care less what an anonymous employee or recruiter or account mngr. had to say. Why are all the reviews with the exception of two, anything but drivers? We don't want to see what management thinks about its own, we want to see what DRIVERS say!

    Advice to Management

    Have your drivers put more reviews out there! Even if anonymous, we want to know what we're getting into before applying for driving positions. I want l/o information but also want to know things like: turnover rate, lease op completion rates since 2011 (economy tank year). And I want to know how warm, fuzzy and cared for your management is going to make me, as I invest thousands and make your company thousands, as I drive for you. That's all...thanks!
    =)

    I have been working at Roadrunner Transportation Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My experience has been challenging which has propelled me into management with the company. In about 4.5 years working for Roadrunner at the corporate office, I have grown as a leader both in title and on a professional level. Some of the pros have been:
    - Fast paced and changing environment which makes work interesting and provides continuous learning opportunities
    - Corporate headquarters is nicely located making it easy to get to from downtown/surrounding suburbs
    - Access to all levels of management, visibility to executive level management

    Cons

    The company has been growing fast for the past few years (both through acquisitions and organically) and has been playing catch-up with streamlining the various operating entities. A few cons in my view are/have been:
    - Missed revenue and bottom line targets in 2015 causing concerns/uncertainties with investors
    - Opportunities to cross-sell additional services to existing customers offset by downtrend in oil prices/ seems to be behind peers even though the entire transportation industry is down
    - Noticing a reactionary mindset by management, although the company's vision appears to be highlighted recently and communicated to employees

    Advice to Management

    Continue to execute vision and communicate exciting changes to boast employee optimism and view of company and management.

    Pros

    Good company. Has pros and cons same as other companies. Needs to concentrate on service and keep it as their daily focus. Give employees attainable incentive and reward programs.

    Cons

    All companies have cons, RR is no different. If you are a good worker your manager will see that. Employees have longevity and that says something about RR.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on service to retain customers. Take care of your employees and RR will benefit from it.

    Pros

    Plenty of LTL freight. Just have to learn the lanes. The pay is decent compared to other O/O Outfits. They treat you with respect.

    Cons

    They only help you to a certain degree. I/C Coordinators are a joke. They really are useless because they just call upper for the ok on anything.

    Become more personalized with your drivers. After all, they are the reason why your in business.
