    Pros

    Company car and gas card. Salary

    Cons

    Micromanaged by KPIs. KPIs not in tune with current market conditions. Capacity issues. Service failures. Constant fight with operations to get anything done. The majority of my time was spent fixing issues opposed to selling. Management is not supportive and offers very little help

    Advice to Management

    Re evaluate the KPIs. Management needs to be more supportive.

    I worked at Saia LTL Freight full-time

    Pros

    Solid pay, benefits and room for growth

    Cons

    The company has an "I gotcha" culture, every department (safety, dispatching, claims, operations management) will throw anyone under the bus.

    Advice to Management

    Reinforce a teaching culture rather than a culture of reprimands. So much emphasis is placed on production at the loss of actual gainful training and education.

    The fontana, ca location only hires mexicans this is racist hiring practice, the company talks about diversity but only hires mexicans and their family members. This location turns down blacks and other races even if they have forklift license.
