Worst decision I have ever made! Avoid this place if your'e not desperate.
Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCMarch 6, 2016
They don't care about you. They don't pay you for the crazy amount of work expected. They are very behind in technology. I could go on, but you get the point...
Pros
I honestly, cannot think of any
Cons
Management, pay, benefits, work/life ratio

management not concerned about their workers
gas tanker driver (Former Employee) –  Rocky Mount, NCFebruary 23, 2016
The mgmt. didn't care about their drivers. The scheduling was ridiculous and most of the time it was impossible to keep to the schedule. All they cared about was getting the product delivered and didn't care how it got there.
Pros
quarterly safety bonus and free shirts and boots
Cons
the healthcare costs were ridiculous

Good place for driver to start his career. Hated to see them close.
OTR Tractor Trailer Driver (Former Employee) –  Telford, TNApril 25, 2015
This was small company with only 5 trucks. Enjoyed coming home every weekend. I would stay out if I saw I couldn't make it in. With this company I learned a lot about the cold transport of product and how good one day would be and go thru heck the next day sitting all day waiting to load then have to be 600 miles away by morning. This occurred only once in awhile.Best part of job was to get loaded and be going 2400 miles to Oregon or other western states and have sufficient time to do it in. Good little company to work. Boss was owners wife who dispatched me and was nicest lady in the world. Would work with me on what we needed to do about loads and where to go,
Pros
ok trucks to drive.
Cons
No insurance. Had trouble with fuel money, Had to wait sometimes before I could fuel.

ran off the sweat of others // like being in Cuba
who cares (Former Employee) –  north carolinaNovember 1, 2013
The upper management does not care about its employees, they allow the middle management to run each facility any way they wish. You never know if you have a job from one day to the next since the middle managements only input is who they wish to fire today. with have 11500 as an employee number and with starting at 100 a few years ago, tells you something about how they feel about employees.
their only concern is product in the ground not employees, safety, family life or anything else.
Pros
their checks dont bounce
Cons
terrible place to work - middle management does not control their terminal managers

Not to much to say about how good of a place to work at.
Truck Driver (Current Employee) –  Greensboro, NCFebruary 24, 2014
It would probably be a good place to work, if they didn't have so many messed up hours. The shifts are very difficult to keep yourself on a normal schedule. And It can be very confusing and frustrating at times due to not being able to get allocation for the loads that are dispatched. Also the rates are very low and don’t pay that well for what you do.
Pros
good equipment.
Cons
bad communication, over worked, and under paid. to many people in management, and not enough in the field.

Horrible place to work for slave wages
Transport driver (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCAugust 21, 2013
I was a driver and driver trainer at Eagle. The load pay rates are over ten years old with no increase in sight. Turn over is over 50% company wide. They will fire a man for no reason at all. People constantly quit over inferior pay. Morale is low. Management talks to you like you are a second class citizen. It is possible on many occasions to work a twelve hour shift and only make $135 dollars. Dispatch plays favortism to certain drivers with no regard for hard work and dedication. Two terminal managers in a years time. No stability. Dispatch is a revolving door as well. You don't get lunch breaks. You must as policy work all holidays including Christmas, and only given $75 extra for doing it. All new hires must work both Saturday and Sunday for one year before getting one weekend day off. Nobody including senior men get Monday thru Friday. If you have to eat it is a job, but averaging $10 to $15 dollars an hour for hauling gas isn't worth it. For instance a $30 load may take you three hours to do it. They promise you big money but it isn't there! Learn from my mistake stay away from Eagle and gas hauling period. They're all the same!

A good place to get expierence and then run !
Driver (Current Employee) –  Port Everglades, FLOctober 17, 2012
Good points are you get paid on time and you can get expierence hauling fuel. Bad points are office help (disbatchers) feel that they need to make the same amount of money as the drivers (driver envy.) Moral is low a few drivers get the gravy work not by merit or senoirity while the majority get the shaft. Basic attitude (your replacable and do not let the door hit you on your behind !) Senoir drivers are quiting as well. As the economy improves driver turn over rate is increasing. It,s like a pair of work boots, your used and thrown away when you are no longer needed.
Pros
pay roll is accurate and on time with pay.
Cons
a child nursery atmosphere like suspensions and getting sent home.

Beautiful scenary and very appreciative customers
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Santa Rosa, CAJuly 28, 2014
Typical day was delivering wine and glass to all major Sonoma county wineries.

The hardest part of the job was never knowing your start and end times as well as getting your hours cut due to excessive hiring and lack of equipment.
Pros
paid on time
Cons
inconsistent hours
