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.

Hostler (Former Employee), Portland, ORMarch 30, 2014
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.

Pick up and delivery driver,Dock worker,dispatcher (Former Employee), Wichita Falls, TXSeptember 13, 2012
Pros: above average pay for this area.
Cons: no real management or sales team, and the benefits were'nt very good.
I worked about 12 hours a day delivering and picking up all kinds of freight.I learned about the freight business and worked in office some too.I had the best boss I've ever had at Central Freight Lines,I suppose that's why I spent 11 years of my life there.They laid off all management and started managing our terminal out of Fort Worth,Texas so the – more... company really went downhill after that.My co-workers at Central Freight Lines were like an extended family,we all got along great.The hardest part of the job was the long hours.The best thing about this job was the pay and the people I worked with. – less

Dock Supervisor (Former Employee), Mira Loma, CAAugust 2, 2012
Pros: the good attitudes the my co-workers would bring to work everyday.
Cons: health insurance, long hours and split days.
A typical day for me is about 13 to 15 hrs.
I learned alot, how to manage people with respect.
Management was a little rough but we came together and we worked everything out.
The hardest part of my job was to put everthing together and make my daily goals and inprove the goals that were given to me.
The most enjoyable part of my job was to watch me – more... and my co-workers grow within the company. – less
