    Pros

    Great wages and benefits. Friendly staff.

    Although the company itself is outstanding, if your immediate supervisor is a jerk your life can be a nightmare. Vacation policy is confusing.

    I worked at Estes Express full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good place to start growing experience when new to the industry, learn from other fellow mechanics, to get along you got to go along.

    Cons

    Not union, overtime after 55 hours which never happens. Need stricter management, favoritism is real, bonuses aren’t much plus it gets taxed. Raises aren’t big, no discipline actions when needed.

    I have been working at Estes Express full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good pay depending on your job. Not a lot of pros to speak of. The ceo sounds like he cares.

    Cons

    The management here is the worst I've ever seen. In the military you are not treated this bad. They don't go by years of service, but by if you are well liked or not.

    I worked at Estes Express

    Pros

    Half the guys you'll work with are actually decent humans. You'll get 50 or more hours a week and unless upper management is in town it's pretty laid back.

    Cons

    The other half are brain dead idiots. You won't ever see overtime pay. When upper management is in town everybody in the shop walks around puckering, in more ways than one.
