      Pros

      Well poised to regain its position as the market leader. Company has proved the naysayers wrong for 20 years but its 100 years of successful experience cannot be over powered. It's Current strategy of one operating company as a super regional Carrier combining the strengths of all of its brands has the potential to significantly take market share back from all the young upstarts that took it from yellow and roadway in the 1st place, if they can execute it and not lose their top sales talent in the process

      Cons

      Suggest better pay for new hires to attract higher level talent also stop overly emphasizing inside virtual meetings and inside sales. True sales talent will gravitate towards companies that reward talented outside sales and sales management

      Pros

      Some of the best pay and hometime in the industry. Once great benefits

      Cons

      Yeah, it's union. But how far does that go when the union owns part of the company? And on-call, no schedule? The company owns you, and they're quick to act like it and let you know. I worked here to get us ahead and prep for our future, but being ran into a full-on mental breakdown? I love my wife and kid too much to repeat my employment here, and yet the entire terminal keeps asking me back. I was one of the best, the company itself chewed me up and spit me out. My boss was amazing. Corporate? And anybody above my boss? Forget about it. And don't look to the once-great Teamsters to have your back, they won't. Teamsters are all politics and money now. Might as well not even be union.

      Pros

      the miles / pay was decent

      Cons

      Team freight - 75% sleeper runs - they downplay this when you start. It's just as likely you'll get someone who has literally NEVER driven in snow - even in a car - and you'll be sleeping while he's driving to Denver from LA through a blizzard. That's why I quit.
