    I worked at United Van Lines full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Close to home has a good rep in community good pay 401K I managed a good group of people who cared what they did.

    Cons

    They offered health benefits but they where not good with a very high deductible. Upper management needs to listen to field managers who are much closer to what is really going on.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more and apply what they preach.

    Pros

    Great college job, summer is the busy season and a motivated college student can make better than average money. Full time drivers can make a lot of money and have a fair amount of independence. Driver demand is high across the industry. Once you have a CDL and experience you can work anywhere in the United States.

    Cons

    Long hours in the summer and no hours in the winter, you need to be able to save your money and budget it when work dries up. Customers can be extremely frustrating. Travel can be grueling especially when your dispatch over schedules you. The crews you work with are rarely consistent and are not usually the most trustworthy characters.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to take better care of the drivers. Too much administration by college kids who have never worked on a job and don't actually understand what's going on. The industry is not paying enough to drivers for the amount of work and responsibility they have evidenced by the fact there is a massive shortage of them.

    Pros

    United Van Lines is an amazing company that takes care of its agencies. They offer tons of support to employees for all kinds of things, have good benefits packages, and offer a wide range of resources with regard to the moving industry.

    Cons

    If you are not working for the headquarters in Missouri, than you will be working at an agency for United Van Lines. I work for a great agency, but many are not so great. I have seen some that do not offer the same kind of rewarding and supportive environment that my agency does.

    Advice to Management

    Remember to reward and empower employees so growth and success can be appropriately fostered.
