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

    Pros

    Weekly pay, health insurance, 401k.

    If you have extremely thick skin, and don't mind having some co-workers that do not care about the customers experience, it's a decent job. The company is growing rapidly.

    Cons

    Disconnect between different locations, everyone on different pages, no real communication, less than helpful co-workers/terminal staff, lack of integrity, outdated systems are often inaccurate creating a horrible experience for both customers and employees.

    This industry is not for everyone; it can be very mentally draining and abrasive.

    Advice to Management

    Bridge the gaps! Terminals need to understand customer service is trying to help them, not work against them. It's supposed to be a team operation, not a war against enemies. Hire more help! Opening new locations and not adding people or equipment is a terrible decision. You are leaving your people out to the wolves. Very frustrating and part of the reason I left after many years with the company.
