    Pros

    - Learn how to work in a fast paced work environment
    - Learn how to manage staff
    - Co-workers were great
    - Nice right out of college salary

    Cons

    - Extremely small office (small bedroom size for 8+ people per shift)
    - Initially told standard was to manage 10-15 people per supervisor (actual was 30-40)
    - Very long hours (Easily 10-12 hours a day 5-6 sometimes 7 days a week)
    - Rotating on-call weekends
    - Management only worries about numbers - not day to day activities (they never interact with other employees)
    - No vacation within first year
    - Extremely unnecessarily stressful environment
    - Very high turnover rate for drivers and office personnel
    - No lunch breaks
    - Impossible for certain accounts to Bonus

    Advice to Management

    - Look into why people leave and start making changes.
    - Give employees lunch breaks
    - Pin point accounts which are more stressful than others and pay those employees more
    - Allow for better work/life balance
    - Force managers to actually leave their office and see day-to-day activities

    Good company to get started in your career but not a long term play.

    Pros

    Learn a lot in a quick amount of time. You are given a lot of responsibility and have a lot of freedom in your work.

    Cons

    There is no work life balance and management runs very thin. A lot of turnover which puts a lot of pressure on every employee. Vacation time is not honored and puts the managers in position of either quitting or giving up their time. Everyone that leaves the job gets a better job making more money and working a shift that involves an actual work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Management still runs as if we are in a recession and does not take into account the economy becoming healthy again. The employees need to be paid for the work they put in and the vacation needs to be honored. Make sure the growth is sustainable before looking for additional accounts.

    Work on keeping good managers. It seems that all the good managers keep leaving the company.

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity to make good money. Most management is good. Working in corporate was an experience, I guess a good experience, still not sure.

    Cons

    Health insurance choices not great. Pick from bad or worse. Some management will create standards and then change the standards. A lot of turnover.

  7. Great experience and opportunities to learn, lead, and grow with a prestigious, well-recognized company.

    Pros

    Home time is the best pro for what I do,Income is middle range,Insurance coverage is middle range but a little high in cost

    Cons

    Company has gotten to big,They change the rules ,pay and the way the trucks run and there come back is if you dont like it you know where the door is

    Advice to Management

    Just listen to your drivers,take to heart and consider our concerns,I feel that the top people in the company forgot that its us driver doing the work,We are a trucking company its the men and women that driver that make your paychecks.We have a very high csa score and turn over rate because of the kind of drivers you hire,change the way you treat and pay your drivers and you can change the class of driver you hire

    Growing company with steady work. Good pay to qualified mechanics. Pretty good benefits except for 1. Good work hours.

    Cons

    They hire to many unqualified people just to fill openings and too many lazy employees. Health care benefits suck.

    Make health care benefits much cheaper for employees. Need to provide better training to some of the employees.
