    Cons

    Advice to Management

    This company does not care about their employees at all. They will lure you in with the money but as soon as they do not need you they will let you go with no remorse. It's not worth it and the job security is not there so make sure you save back the money they are paying you because you need to purchase everything with cash because your job can be cut at any moment. They have a day once every 6 months when they call everyone into the office one by one, people leave and you never see them again.

    I have been working at Saia LTL Freight full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits only

    Cons

    Most employee unfriendly place i have ever worked! You are just a number and they are looking to fire you! Saftey dept. Is out of control with the in cab camera- no Bluetooth policy and you truck drivers better not get caught talking on that cb radio. No communication policy what so ever. The guys that's not getting fired are looking for employment elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Come out of your office see how bad your employees hate working here. change your ridiculous Bluetooth and cb policies. Truck drivers need to communicate for saftey reasons and your saftey dept don't have a clue how to treat people except pound there chest and show us who is boss. You have fired and had so many quit that you now are starting to force drivers to work xtra because you can't get no drivers to come here and work. We are the laughingstock of the road.

    Pros

    Pay is high but that's only because they know that no one would work for them if it wasn't.

    Cons

    Horrible unethical management, discrimination , long hours, constant threat of being let go, no work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    There's no hope for these guys. They need a union. That is the only way things will get better.
