What a sad excuse for an LTL company
Driver-Dockworker (Former Employee) – Sparks, NV – December 13, 2015
When I was hired last year at con-way I was told they were one of the best in the country. Bwahahaha, they are delusional. The Reno terminal is a wreck. Mis-managed and crumbling.
They make drivers literally sit around for hours after being told to come in. Then they tell you if you want to get paid you can always work the dock while you wait.mind you, this is prior to your potential 10-14 hour run. Conway works you like a dog they constantly will work you until your 16. There's no care for drivers. I can't believe they haven't unionized yet. I can't believe some drivers take it. Oh man and that great equipment, 4 breakdowns in 2 months. All the tricks have the check engine light on. Forklifts run like garbage.
Conway was recently purchased by XPO logistics. There is so much water time and money in this company XPO needs to fix this sinking ship fast. Conway (XPO) literally has the mentality of "make the freight fit." That goes a long way down the pipe of how employees are treated. Working for an fac or dock is miserable and you are treated like scum. Held to work the dock for hours.
I broke down 4 hours away from my home terminal one day. The management at the nearest location handed me the keys to their car and said a driver from your home terminal will be here in 4 hours to take you back, go nap in my car. Pathetic! Cheap!
Unless you are a glutton for punishment, I suggest you stay far away from XPO/ Conway. You will work for free and have no life of your own.
Safety first ha!
None; benefits are expensive
14-16 hour days, horrible mgmt, free labor, lies
