Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – October 18, 2017
General office duties from answering the phone to customer service to human resources to dispatch. Worked on everything from customer issues with pickups, to account executives issues with accounting & billing problems, maintenance invoices for our equipment as well as making sure our equipment records were kept up to date.
very stressful and not suitable for the average person
Chemical Distribution Specialist/Broker (Former Employee) – Bentonville, AR – October 15, 2017
Disorganized. Too many chiefs and not enough Indians. Never gave anyone support. It was a sink or swim scenario. No one knew how to even train the software. Company sold out to XPO and then now they are CFI again.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – South Bend, IN – October 2, 2017
If you're a yes man, you'll do awesome. If you're a free thinking person that isn't a yes man, you won't do well here. You make good money to put up with a lot of problems! Management has NO communication! The terminal manager is a liar and has no morals. For someone who talks a lot about God, he certainly doesn't walk the walk but he can talk the talk. The women in the office are so catty!
Dock Worker (Former Employee) – Parma, OH – September 28, 2017
It has a good safety culture and the people I worked with were friendly and very helpful. the hours weren't all that great I was working from 4 until 830 or 9 depending on how much freight had to be moved.
cool people, easy job, good money
odd hours, winters were exterme, management was very number orientated
Professional Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – September 28, 2017
I pulled most anything that would go in a dry van. I started off OTR, but changed to Regional to spend more time with my family. I saw and learned a lot from going to some of the out of the way places they had customers. I never had a problem with the management that a simple conversation couldn't solve. They were very driver focused. I saw parts of Canada I wold never have seen. They would try to pre-plan your next trip usually. They offered a cash advance for a trip when they dispatched you from a terminal, only company I have seem that does that to make sure their drivers aren't out on the road broke. I really enjoyed that job.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – September 23, 2017
Conway Freight was a great place to work, management was awesome. The most enjoyable part of my job was interacting with all the drivers and scanning documents from different facilities, also filing and other clerical duties.
CDL A Driver (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – September 9, 2017
As good as a company to drive for gets. I had Zero issues with management and loved the job. The driver was the boss behind the wheel if safety was an issue (weather, wind etc.) and was supported by Driver Managers. If you felt driving was dangerous you were never forced to go. Conway is a 'forced dispatch' though, so if you got a load, there's no arguing, but all my loads were almost all threat free (bad environments, safe parking spots etc.
