    I have been working at Saia LTL Freight full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great pay...benefits...great management...great people to work around. It's been great for me so far....my worst day here doesn't even compare to other companies I've worked for. The training is great in my opinion. Everyone that I've encountered seems to be very helpful and kind. There will be bad days but nothing that cant be sucked up. I plan to retire here if nothing goes wrong.

    Cons

    No cell phone use but I'm starting to adjust. You may not like being gone...but the pay is worth it.

    Pros

    Excellent salaries for managers and good benefits

    Cons

    Trucking industry mentality and the core management team is a Good Old Boys Club. Prima-donas that do not believe in feedback from one level below.

    Advice to Management

    This is 2019! You are no longer peddling fruit and moving it from market to market like in 1924. Treat you personnel with respect and come off your pedestals!

    I have been working at Saia LTL Freight full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    In my day to day situation it could be worse.

    Cons

    Unable to remote work, while others are under preferential treatment. Pay is on the extreme low end of the industry. Company inclusion is nonexistent between upper, lower and off site, despite years of employ. Must be in Atlanta to climb the ladder.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of avoiding annual reviews, be proactive. With the economy being strong and shouting from the mountain top how good we are.. How about following through with the people that keep your company afloat.

    I worked at Saia LTL Freight full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    It's a paycheck that's about it

    Cons

    Drivers are treated horrible, management is on egg shells, they boast that they pay overtime but you will be cut to 4 days a week sometimes 3 days a week. Trucks have a driver facing camera. No real retirement plan. It's a decent job if you don't have one but don't get comfortable.. Quit before they fire you first.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your hard working people better and they won't all be looking for jobs everyday when they get off
