    I worked at Rush Enterprises full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Worked with some really great people, Management was flexible with work style and schedules. Seem committed to innovation and recognize (finally) the impact of technology on the markets and on business processes. Strong investment in IT currently happening under direction of new IT leadership team.

    Cons

    Bringing an older family run style business up to the 21st century in technology and processes is not without some pain. Benefits were not the best, but adequate for my needs at the time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on innovation and the future. Keep investing in your teams.

    I worked at Rush Enterprises full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, decent benefits and easy commute are what kept me here as long as I was. Challenging job. Good co-workers that felt my pain in corporate frustration.

    Cons

    No work/life balance. 70 hours a week with constant demand for more work to do. Salary was good, but not worth the loss of family time. I asked for a program to better do my job and was met with nothing but "Excel should be enough."

    Advice to Management

    Short of a 30 minute welcome video, I knew nothing about your company, its value, its culture, or where it is going. Create a new employee orientation. Please invest in your employees growth. I received no corporate training, no support for continued education, nor was shown any desire to improve employees so they could grow with the company.

    I worked at Rush Enterprises full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay is good. Other employees were helpful. Past managers were great. Rush rodeo is a definite must at least once.

    Cons

    Management has issues. Never wanting to be apart of the department. Would rather sit in the office and stare at a computer screen instead of being active in the department they are managing. Letting bad employees get away with anything they wanted. Showed favoritism to some employees. Corporate made changes for the worse. Ended up putting a bigger workload on the store employees and management at the store level didn't help with that. Employee appreciation wasn't there. Seems like all they want to care about is money. Unless you know someone don't plan on advancing much in this company.

    Advice to Management

    Show more attention to the employees and the department you are managing. Reward employees that do a great job and show they have the knowledge for the role they are in. Money isn't everything.

    Pros

    They are dedicated to provide world class trucks and service to their customers.

    Cons

    Communication between divisions and middle management is never clear and often is diluted when it reaches line workers.

    Advice to Management

    Sr Mgmt needs to talk to first line supervisors and line employees, ask how mgmt can help them become more productive.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, hours and pay are good as well! They offer many opportunities to further your learning and training. No micromanagement if you complete tasks correctly and on time. Company is made up of dedicated workers and has a family like environment.

    Cons

    None that I can think of. Great people and tons of locations!
