Laid-back workplace
Data Entry (Current Employee) –  Tempe, AZMay 12, 2017
The centralized billing job in Tempe, AZ for Dayton Freight Lines is great. If you're the type of person that needs daily interaction with fellow employees, this job is not for you. This position requires you to zone in and go to work. You will quickly learn that patience is your best friend, as the software takes a few months to fully grasp. Overall, there is no manager constantly heckling employees but they do, however, monitor everyone's work closely from afar.
Pros
paid breaks, no manager constantly on your back, comfortable, great location
Cons
REQUIRED 30 min lunch break, very minimal communication between coworkers

Billing department needs serious work
Billing Specialist (Former Employee) –  Tempe, AZApril 2, 2017
I loved working with people in other departments, but the work culture in centralized billing was toxic, with systemic problems with employee development from management to trainers to auditors. It only seemed like 2 people ever made themselves available to people. The long hours and late shifts and lack of advancement in the AZ office make this a dead end job.
Pros
Benefits, pay/pay scale
Cons
Time off, management, work culture, training, developement, advancement opportunities

Dock Worker/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYMarch 29, 2017
As a part time dock worker you don't get benefits but the pay is excellent for what you do and the job itself is not that challenging.

Loved the culture and people there. Job was stressful at times but far and few between. Highly recommend to others. The only reason I stopped was due to academics and driving.

Work on the dock moving freight daily in difficult conditions. Not a lot of variety but the pay is decent for the work you are doing. Shift work can be difficult.

Best ltl company to work for!
City Driver (Current Employee) –  Tomah, WIMarch 11, 2017
I have been working for Dayton for 10 yrs. and every year it keeps getting better. The benefits, pay, facilities, and equipment are top notch. But most impressive is the culture here at Dayton. You are treated with respect and are reminded in many ways how important you are to the company. This really is a unique company in this industry.What I mean by that is, they really care about you having a quality life at work and home. This all starts at the top with the best ownership in the business. Finally an owner that operates with high standards, good morals, and the understanding of treating employees good results in success!
Pros
Profit sharing, yearly raises, 401k is awesome
Cons
Conditions in winter can b tuff.

Pros
Good hours, great pay

Dock Worker (Current Employee) –  Warren, MIJanuary 29, 2017
I have enjoyed everything about working at Dayton, from the management, to the modern equipment, to my fellow dock workers. The pay is excellent. Some people may not like working on the open air dock, and it would be better if they had more full time positions. You'll have to be patient being capped at 27 hours per week, indefinitely.
Pros
Almost everything
Cons
Cold working conditions, part time work

A typical day was answering phones assisting customers and drivers. Routing freight and entering bill of ladings into the computer. Dispatching line haul drivers and making sure they had all their needed mail and paperwork for their route.I learned how to multitask and wear many hats and dig to find answers that needed to be found to help the dock workers, drivers, etc... I also faxed, filed, entered paper work etc...
Pros
great management and good company to work for
Cons
worked night shift

Workhorse type of job
CENTRALIZED BILLING ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) –  Tempe, AZJanuary 20, 2017
This job was very fast paced and all about the numbers each and every night. The sooner the team got through all the bills, the sooner you could go home. Lots of OT but some very late nights 2am-4am then back to work at 12:30-1:00 to do it all over again. Overall not a bad job if you like processing bills and like I said the OT was nice when you had a chance to spend it.
