    Pros

    One you get hired on, you don't want to leave. Great community, not as stuck on metrics as other call centers are. Staff and management are all supportive and very helpful.

    Cons

    Cliques form. It's hard to get promoted if you're not one of the "cool kids".

    Pros

    The benefits are great. Pay and time off, home every night, no weekends.

    Cons

    Richfield Ohio DOES NOT LET driver take off for their planned vacations! Vacation requests GET DENIED all the time 2 to 3 months ahead of time! Instead they have extra drivers and give them 'days off' in the morning 2 hours before their shift- THAT IS then their VACATION. Somehow Saia management calls this practice a 'reduced work day' which varies with the amount of freight for that given day.

    Advice to Management

    This practice is wrong and your BEST drivers will quit and go somewhere else. It's not a matter of salary, it a matter of the drivers having 'a life'. Shame on you.

    Pros

    Grateful they me the opportunity. Benefits were good. Close to my house. The team was very united, which made the job easy. Pretty good as far as technology.

    Cons

    The long hours did not match the pay. I was hired for a 10 and a half hr shift, really worked 10 to 13hrs. We were also asked to work every other Sunday without monetary compensation. You only had loaders/stackers sometimes which I find unacceptable. Ran out of equipment constantly.

    Advice to Management

    Educate your workers, be more consistent on your expectations. Plan better, if the system is already strained why open more terminals without buying more equipment? Buy equipment first.
