Celadon is an ok company to work for most terminals are not very clean or driver friendly
Truck Driver (Former Employee), Indianapolis, IndianaAugust 12, 2015
Pros: Dedicated Petsmart Pays the best
Cons: Needs better training
Celadon has many changes happening with them purchasing other companies Also adding to their fleet with flatbeds and refer division.
most of the terminals are not up to standard as for showers, relaxing or TV rooms. Like most companies you have good and bad DM's some will keep drivers moving and others will leave drivers stranded.

Truck Driver (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INJuly 24, 2015
Pros: nice trucks and truck wash at headquaters
Cons: short miles and plays favortism alot
Not to bad if you want to sit a lot and take other people's loads cause they can't to do it themselves . Cause they don't know how to manage their drive time. so for that you have to give them your load that has better miles -n- pay rate -n- take their 50 mile or 25 mile pay rate -n- load. The company doesn't give you anything for taking a pay cut for doing it.

Good Company
Class A Driver (Former Employee), Fontana, CAJuly 23, 2015
This company was easy to work for. The job consisted of picking up overseas containers and delivering them to various states. Reason for leaving is that they eliminated my position and went to contract hire.

Outside Recruiter/Human Resources (Current Employee), Indianapolis, IndianaJuly 21, 2015
Pros: Bankers hours
Cons: dont care for drivers, they are a number
This is a fun and exciting place to work but if you are over 50 years old then you will not get promoted and more then likely not fit in
They promote people that are barely out of college.
This is a great place to launch a career once your promoted and get a fancy title.

Promises aren't kept, and they keep you in the dark.
Professional Driver (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INJune 17, 2015
Pros: They will pay for most everything as a company driver.
Cons: You have to threaten them to even get reimbursed for anything.
They seem very secretive, almost like there's always a worrisome motive behind decisions. The wage is very low for industry standards, especially for solo company drivers. Their lease program is the biggest joke. They are literally growing too fast and don't know how to run a bigger business yet. The people whom run the company have only money in mind. They care not who they hire or keep happy as far as drivers. From day one in their driving school, until the end, I had to beg for answers and then they were always a runaround reply.

Productive and a good place to start off
Company OTR Driver (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INMay 27, 2015
Everywhere is the same when you work as a company driver. For this company they're not that bad. You can run as much as you can or willing to work. Of course the longer you stay out the more miles and the more money... This company allow to run and they treat you right... Of course depend on the dispatch.

Only a Stepping Stone in Your Career
Accounts Receivable Specialist (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INApril 29, 2015
Too many acquisitions for every department to handle- not enough staffing

Notorious for underpaying employees

Employees are treated like a number

Most Directors, VP's, Presidents ect are all either family or college buddies

Bonus structures are not equally achievable. In the AR Department, the three minorities were not "eligible" even though they had the same responsibilities and titles as their peers.

Learned a lot about acquisitions because Celadon does them backwards

Difficult job with too much stress
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Butler, INApril 10, 2015
Pros: Pay
Cons: hours, stress, chaos
Very chaotic work environment. No clear cut training in the terminal that I was in. At times could be considered a hostile work environment. Phones ringing non-stop, very hard to concentrate on doing things the right way.

Coworkers are over whelmed and struggle to have time to train you. Hardest part of job is learning all the details, and focusing on meeting expectations.

Corporate will say its a 40hr week job but your operations manager will say its at least 45 but they prefer 50hr.

OTR/dedicated/local/owner-op , driver (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INFebruary 19, 2015
Pros: open door policy, on site dorm and cafateria excellent equipment
Cons: transparency regarding lease options and language
for company drivers there is a positive workplace environment whereas the "lease-less" truck lease program leaves a lot to be considered , it is recommended that one should do their homework if considering such a venture.
It is recommended that a applicant look into OOIDA and ask them to evaluate said lease options with Celadon Trucking.
