    I worked at Saia LTL Freight full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good pay Good benefits Easy but high paced shifts

    Cons

    Upper management doesn’t communicate well. Employees are not held to policies and are not disciplined. Limited amount of management during shifts causes late schedules and rough communication. Bad equipment and outdated technology. Horrible work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly, stop being cheap.

    I worked at Saia LTL Freight full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent salaries for managers and good benefits

    Cons

    Trucking industry mentality and the core management team is a Good Old Boys Club. Prima-donas that do not believe in feedback from one level below.

    Advice to Management

    This is 2019! You are no longer peddling fruit and moving it from market to market like in 1924. Treat you personnel with respect and come off your pedestals!

    I worked at Saia LTL Freight full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Has good pay and good benefits

    Cons

    As a driver you will be watched constantly, there are cameras and mics. in all of the trucks, you will written up or fired for doing something as simple as talking on the CB. The cameras are facing the driver, as well as what is in front of you.Very stressful working conditions. Moral at this company is awful, and mgt. is not concerned, at the end of the day all they care about is the numbers looking good.

    Advice to Management

    They need to focus more on the employees.
