    I worked at West Side Transport full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some hard working people care about the others.

    Cons

    Owner is not loyal to his employees. Times get tough he only thinks of himself and lays off long term employees selecting the oldest who make the most money. Promises bonuses but doesn't pay them. Poorly run small company.

    Pros

    Westside is good as far as time home especially local hub and pay is ok. In my opinion I think all company drivers should make over a $1,000 AT LEAST after taxes.

    Cons

    Not uch Cons just hate I was a great driver for them and everything that I did great has been discredited due to a rollover that wasn't my fault. They waited a week to see if I was ok, letting me to believe in false hope that I still had my job. but canned me soon as their medical staff said I was ok. Now I' m still struggling to find work to take care of y family. Family Oriented huh!

    Advice to Management

    Need to invest in their own insurance so drivers like me who wasn't in the wrong; can still have a chance with the same company in which they grew to like a lot.

    Pros

    I worked for West side for 5 years and I can honestly say it is one of the better company's out there.Its the only company where the owner still drives.The pay is decent and if you want to work you WILL make money.They cater to the needs of drivers which I've never seen before.

    Cons

    Like all company's they have issues like over catering to drivers.if you need time off you will get it but don't expect anyone to pay for it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working. On it till you find what works.
