    Pros

    Great work environment, upper management really appreciates you an your work as long as you work hard. They definitely weed out the scrubs and get good hardworking individuals.

    Cons

    As a field service technician I love it, only con I can think of is working outside all day when it rains and not in a shop, but working outside is also a pro when it's a nice day out.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the phenomenal work

    Pros

    I'm home every night which is a plus. Management will treat you with absolute respect as long as you treat them the same. Good trucks well maintained equipment. Fun and easy job to do. Love going to work.

    Cons

    Pay raises and advancement is the question. No overtime for local positions. Long Hours little pay.

    Advice to Management

    Give your Drivers raises and maybe the company won't have such a high turnover rate. Promise the numbers you display online for expected pay.

    Pros

    Ok place to gain entry level experience but don't stay too long. There are some truly good leaders and if you get one count yourself lucky.

    Cons

    Hard to move up the corporate ladder. Several employees see to "fall upward" while other good employees aren't recognized for their hard work and are left sitting because leadership is afraid they would have to train new individuals or they are just to lazy to help develop their people. Several middle managers are only looking out for themselves so it makes finding a true career difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Have HR truly be separate and work for the benefit of all associates ... learn to help the leaders without becoming biased. Use the HR team to evaluate managers look at trends and perform better exit interviews to learn where problem areas exist. End micro-managers.

    Have better recognition and reward of associates work and better career paths vs. simply jobs.

    Have more flexibility for work life balance.

    Pros

    Hires rookies, time off is mostly granted. Lots of miles if you want it.

    Cons

    Low pay, office/dispatch seems to change a lot. Tons of overweight loads.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down the number of drivers per dispatcher ratio. Meaning hire more dispatchers.

    Pros

    Decent equipment, lots of terminals

    Cons

    Dispatch (DBL), trailer hunting, home time

    Advice to Management

    Should be easier to speak to your specific DBL. 9/10 times I spoke to whoever was available at your home OC. No real leadership

    Raise base salaries for sales people.
