    Pros

    You have a job for life - if you can tolerate the atmosphere

    Cons

    Upper management is horrendous - no management skills and too much in-fighting.

    Advice to Management

    hire skilled managers with college degrees - but that means you will have to pay a living wage to managers.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, holidays off, hours when you need them. Dispatch staff at depot experienced and capable - made the effort to support drivers during trouble and emergencies. Friendly and caring staff all around.

    Cons

    Medical benefits were way too expensive for a union job. Competition between company depots sometimes could lead one depot lacking necessary equipment for the route requirements.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication from and to HQ. Staff at main office needs to be more timely with time-sensitive paperwork (such as notifying health insurance of the end date of employment in a timely enough manner to apply for COBRA)

    Pros

    WE Transport is a family run company and therefore working in the office has become a family-like atmosphere. Many of my co-workers are willng and able to help others when times are busy regardless of what department they are in. Coming from a company that required overtime during the holidays, I enjoy that this office is closed for school holidays. I have not had a problem requesting time off or missing days when my children are ill. WE Transport also has a number of company outings throughout the year which allow us to have a break from work and enjoy each other as "family."

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    More Responsibilities should equal More Money.
