    I worked at Saia LTL Freight full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Has good pay and good benefits

    Cons

    As a driver you will be watched constantly, there are cameras and mics. in all of the trucks, you will written up or fired for doing something as simple as talking on the CB. The cameras are facing the driver, as well as what is in front of you.Very stressful working conditions. Moral at this company is awful, and mgt. is not concerned, at the end of the day all they care about is the numbers looking good.

    Advice to Management

    They need to focus more on the employees.

    Pros

    Fairly good pay, Nice Building/Break Room, Fun activities throughout the year, great benefits. Idaho's best trainers!

    Cons

    Not many advancements opportunities, treat you like children with their attendance policies, very very busy, management is very a huge clique, if you aren't their friend, you get different treatment.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people more as people and not just a number in your attendance pool. Stop the cliques, its not fair to others who work so hard and go unnoticed or don't get the same opportunities because they aren't in your clique.

    I have been working at Saia LTL Freight part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I came into this job skeptical but have been here a year and have been pleasantly surprised. I find it to be a positive, professional work environment with fun people. Pay is better than I've ever had and love the guaranteed bi-annual raises. My schedule is AWESOME, as I get off at 12:30 p.m. daily. Regular amount of p.t.o. time for part-time employees. Regular potluck meals and they make an effort for employee appreciation day/week, which is nice! Jean day on Fridays. I've been watching to see if people are getting fired or quitting regularly and that is just not the case. The turnover at this office is low.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of any.

    Advice to Management

    You're awesome!
