forklift operator (Former Employee), McAllen, TXApril 17, 2015
Go in at 7 am immediately get on forklift and start my day which is also one way to keep me busy and not stand around waiting for someone to tell me what to do. at this job I learned how to drive a tractor trailer and was never able to drive standard trucks, however they helped me learn as I went on I got more and more hang of what I was doing and quicker than I was before. I received my spotter certificate for backing up trailers to the dock that needed to be unloaded. co-workers were fun to talk and hang with made friends with everyone. hardest part of job was getting up every Monday at 3 am to go to work due trailers getting in early. Most enjoyable part of job was having somewhere I could say I was happy working at and waking up in the mornings to go to work. I need to stay busy and love to stay productive at any workplace no matter what.

City Driver (Current Employee), Lafayette, LAFebruary 11, 2015
My day at work consist of me loading up my truck with freight in morning then get started on my route. Also throughout the day I get pickups while also doing deliveries. Working for Central I learned that good customer service means everything in the freight business. My co workers and supervisor are great people always willing to help when needed.

Very Interesting!
Human Resources Generalist (Former Employee), Dallas, TXJanuary 15, 2015
I found Human Resources very rewarding, able to apply organizational skills, public relations and communication skills with applicants and employees. Management was always available for guidance, co-workers always willing to help if necessary. The hardest part of the job was learning the guidelines and the most enjoyable part of the job was always learning and meeting people.

Driver
Driver (Former Employee), Hayward, CASeptember 23, 2014
Cons: why?
I was a Driver at Central Freight, and they fired me after 8 months for a minor accident. I have been a driver my entire life, and the way the they got rid of me was like they needed a sacrifice. I wonder if they are ruled by the devil.

Customer Service Lead (Former Employee), Waco, TXAugust 18, 2014
A typical day at work is fast pasted. I didn't learn much, you have to teach your self. Supervisor very knowledgeable but also rude and run people off. Manager doesn't know much. Co-workers cool but most are old and messy. The hardest past of my job was actually going to work. I hated the atmosphere. I don't think I enjoyed anything. I worker there for 3yrs as a customer service rep that was part time. I think Central Freight needs new management. The team leaders are lazy. All of them accept one. They want help or don't know, very true. Supervisor tries to do everyone's job but her owns.They start you off at $11.00, which isn't bad. but it will never go up is the catch and you will only work a few hours.Bottom line they don't care about there employees, and people who work for them don't care and they never fight to keep good workers.If you interview and don't get, GREAT

Outbound Supervisor (Former Employee), Houston TexasJuly 23, 2014
Pros: the benefits
Cons: not knowing when you were getting off
A typical day was unloading freight from inbound truck and placing freight in proper location for distribution. Ensure all freight was loaded in correct trailers and load was secured. Ensured co-workers were using proper safety procedures unloading trailers hardest part was not knowing when you would be getting off. I enjoyed working with all of my co-workers

Ever changing workplace
Driver/Dock Worker (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXJuly 11, 2014
Pros: good pay, decent hours
Cons: short to no breaks
Unless assigned a set route, freight hauled and destinations are ever changing. This affords the driver the opportunity to learn multiple ways around the city or various other towns and cities delivered to. Work is primarily done alone.

A day at work would be moving semi trailers in and out of the bays so that they could be loaded and unloaded. Management was all right, hardest part of the job would have been the weather.
