Senior Supplier Relationship Management Specialist (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – January 12, 2017
I would not recommend Con-way. I am not surprised they were bought out by XPO Logistics. Con-way embraced employees of hateful natures. Disrespect and sub-par skills were the standard. Most days were spent trying to circumvent sabotage of peers and manager. Spent many nights and weekends completing positive work without indignant interruptions.

typical day was going in early AM get on a hilo, do inspection of hilo. Then i was in charge of getting freight over from staged trailers to the trailers that were supposed to go.Management was not great but not terrible, some of the guys in management were decent people.Coworkers made the day fun, always laughing. hardest part was had loading or unloading trailers.I really enjoyed the guys i worked with .

Con-way was a great place to work! I loved having my own truck, and I loved going to the Laredo (TX) facility. With Con-way, I drove to nearly all 48 states, in a 10 month period. I highly recommend Con-way as a place of employment.
Professional Truck Driver/ Trainer (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – December 21, 2016
Excellent pay once you are out of the training periods required for all new hire employees. Poor management however they tend to leave you alone if you do your job properly. No home life, they rarely can get you home on the days you request.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Duluth, MN – December 13, 2016
I did many different roles including customer service, dispatching drivers and figuring out where lost freight belonged. I learned more keyboarding skills as well as billing for the company. My coworkers were amazing and always willing to go the extra mile for the team and the customer.
Trailer Mechanic (Current Employee) – Santa Fe Springs, CA – December 3, 2016
Conway is a good company but management in the shop needs to be retrained. Lack of people skills are a major problem. I enjoy working with my felow co workers but there needs to be major changes in operation.
The job that I had was enjoyable due to the fact that everyday was different that your typical job in a corporate environment. With classifying freight on a daily basis, it was a good experience knowing that you were making a positive impact on the bottom dollar due to the fact that we were making the company money by simply just reclassifying freight making the company over $150 million a year.
