    Pros

    Saia is a pretty darn good employer, I've been with them for almost twenty years and are as good as the top tier LTL companies. I'm still here because so far no other companies can compete with what saia has to offer for bennies. I love working with my coworkers and other staff. Terminal manager's that I have worked with are the best.

    Cons

    There are no coffee and donuts provided for night time driver's😂😂

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

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, I have been at saia 5 years. Love my job until well here comes the cons

    Cons

    New Freightline trucks with driver cams in all trucks by 2018. Writing drivers up for ridiculous stuff. Like taking a drink of water. The people reviewing these videos have never seen the inside of a truck so they have no idea what we deal with. Also putting Bose Ride System seats in new trucks. They adjust to your weight and you can not let air out. They are very uncomfortable to myself and a lot of drives I have talked to

    Advice to Management

    Let experienced drivers review driver cam videos. Save the money that you spend on over priced seat and return it to the employees

    I worked at Saia LTL Freight full-time

    Pros

    The weekly Wednesday payroll is the best.

    Cons

    Customer Service is very stressful as they take the brunt of all mistakes whether made by them or the terminals or management. Also terminals lie a lot about info when you call to track shipments, therefore making you look bad because you are the one actually interacting with the customer and Management lets them get away with it.

    Advice to Management

    Watch the terminals more closely & stop micromanaging customer service when they only try to resolve issues. Listen to your reps, they know firsthand.

    Pros

    Very good pay, but tough job. Wonderful atmosphere and great people. The best supervisors very understanding and want you to succeed. I do love my bosses which I have never said that about any other job i have ever had.

    Cons

    There is a lot of multi tasking and the job can be very stressful but again when you are just starting out there is a lot of help for you. They want you to succeed and be good at the job. They do not give enough vacation time is my only complaint.

    Advice to Management

    i really don't have any advice, i like the way that they are doing things right now and I do like my job!
