Great pay and benefits! Employee morale is great! Advancing your career may be a little difficult because of the numerous departments of the company and very good employee retention. There is no real downside of this job but the hours of operation could improve. Most positions are overnight shifts.
Employee Appreciation, great work enviroment, helpful co-workers
I worked for Con-way, i was working more than 55 hours a week for salary, horrible
Analyst (Former Employee) – Ann Arbor, MI – March 21, 2017
This place got me so sick, I end up at ER, my stress level was way too hight. I was never able to take a break, lunches. My manager kept gave me more and more work. They don't care about their employees. I witnessed many people leaving the company. If you want to have a life definitely this is not the place for you to work.
Driver (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – March 18, 2017
Worked there for 8 months they rarely ever got me out of the nort east despite my requests to do so, and then my wife got pregnant and it caused me to need more home time so I had to get a different job.

Commercial driver class A (Former Employee) – Hagerstown, MD – February 25, 2017
12-14 hour days, learned anyone can run an LTL company, management is inept and uninformed, hostile work environment often confrontational, hardest part is working the outside dock and you can't feel your toes, most enjoyable part is not working there anymore
Class A CDL Driver (Former Employee) – Lancaster, TX – February 17, 2017
They had a home away from home. Good about hometime. Pay is reasonable. Glad they had a management turnover because the old was ungrateful. They send their drivers to small docks and expect no scratches and dents on their equipment
Tractor Trailer Operator (Former Employee) – Danville, IL 61834 – February 13, 2017
If you like extra board this is for you, but if you don't like knowing when your going to be called in, it is horrible. Good atmosphere to work in otherwise. You would be driving and working the dock, cold winters and got summers.
I managed at the Minneapolis Terminal for 6 years. Started out on 2nd shift, working from 2pm to midnight (sometimes longer). Put in a year and moved to days, working Tuesday thru Saturday, another thankless position. Eventually moved to Morning shift, 330 am to 2pm. Do the math before you apply, as its the land of broken promises. Work\life balance is non-existent! This is a great job for a single person with no kids. They will work you to the bone, then tell you didn't work hard enough.
Dock life......Expect to freeze your butt off in the winter time, and sweat thru your clothes in the summer time. The use of a desk for paperwork is never available, and plan on picking up after the shift before you. Continuous haz mat spills will keep you plenty busy, as well as daily meetings on how to fasten your seat belt. The dock can be a very dangerous place, with 50 plus forklifts flying around. (take out extra life insurance).
The only real positive that came out of Conway for me was my 401, and a few friends I made along the way.
Senior Logistics Account Manager (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – February 3, 2017
Enjoyable work environment to show up to every day. It was an extremely positive and fun place to work until XPO bought out Con-way. Everything changed. Very unfortunate, but part of corporate life. I'm confident in my skills, and just looking for the best match.
City Driver (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – January 24, 2017
Was hired as a City Driver, but, for the 4 mo's that I worked there, I went out in the city maybe 5 times, the other time was spent on the dock. Often I wasn't able to work a full 8 hours. It was one of the worst companies I've ever worked at.
pulled freight off trucks with forklift and wrapped put it in order the day was very busy and trucks ran in per amount of product .And there where a lot of business but it was a temp job so when freight was low we where sent home
