Dockworker (Former Employee) – Valley View, OH – June 13, 2016
I took this job as a way to pay down debt, the hourly rate is great and for the most part management was great. Dockworkers are part-time in afternoon and evening shifts and was easy to work into a hectic schedule.
day at work is basically come in get on your forklift log into pda find what trailer is next to be open and broke down freight to either place on dock for later loading or if freight is put directly on trailer shown on pda ....Ive learned different ways of loading to correctly fit as much freight on trailer as possible without sacrificing safety of freight ......for most part management is laid back and relaxed long as work is getting done employees are staying busy till work is finished ...co-workers are easy going and willing to help if your not sure on certain things in work place or how to load trucks correctly and how to use pda ...... really not much hard about job only thing that gives anyone trouble is learning pda and if freight should be loaded or placed on docks .... the most enjoyable part is the atmosphere on the dock between the employees and how we all get along and joke and help each other or any new employee that needs help without hesitation
Been on the dock now just over 3.5yrs and I enjoy working for the company v

I hate the winters but that's to be expected. But Dayton is one the best companies I've ever worked for. There advancements options are slim but the is pay great and it sort of makes up for it. They are very fair and equal. My terminal is a real fun place to work at we all get along joke and what have you but still do our jobs and get business done and get the trucks on the road ASAP.

If you have a problem, you are usually on your own because co-workers keep doing THEIR jobs. This attitude is not helped by company wanting more and more freight moved per hour. This Go-Go mandate for speed is contradicted when freight is damaged and supervisor tells the employee "You should drive slower and be more careful."
No benefits for part time worker and difficult to become full time
Dock Worker/Forklift Driver (Current Employee) – MI – January 21, 2016
I Told you Its Like family, the hard part of the day is the rush when the last shipment arrives. The begin of the day when everyone goes over the load plans/ and safety fact of the day. While your working you can easily communicate with each person(s) via radio hand held.
Office Manager/Payroll Specialist (Current Employee) – Crest Hill, IL – September 15, 2015
A great place to work if you are just looking for a job to go to everyday. The culture is wonderful and the management is very understanding and welcoming. The only downside is there is only so much room for advancement.
