Great Company to work for.
Operations Manager (Current Employee), Columbus, OHAugust 3, 2014
A typical day at work is fast paced but rewarding.
I started as a P & D driver and work my way to management and
have learned the operation of an LTL terminal from the bottom up.
Management is good
Co-workers are great
Hardest part of the job is implementing new procedures on the dock
that have not always been tried before putting them in place.
I enjoy – more... everything about my job. – less

APPOINTMENT/MANIFEST CLERK (Current Employee), Decatur, ALJuly 20, 2014
I thoroughly enjoyed working here. The people and environment were great. It was the first company that I have ever worked for that paid its employees for their birthday. All employees received 8 hours of extra pay every year on their birthday, part-time and full-time. All employees were paid for holidays and all were offered insurance.

Load trucks on forklift neatly
Dock Worker (Former Employee), Smyrna, TNJune 3, 2014
Pros: dental and medical coverage.
Cons: lifting heavy freight all the time.
Clock in grab a truck and work it until empty and all freight loaded on designated trucks. Learned to operate forklift and load bars. Management was ok they helped when needed and were always there for you. Co-workers were amazing, we always worked together. The hardest part of the job was loading big metal piece that you had put on trucks by hand. – more... Best part of being an employee were the softball tournaments we had every year. – less

good place to work
Operations Manager (Former Employee), Ellenwood, GAMay 21, 2014
Pros: good pay, laid back work environment
Cons: still a little bit of the "good ol' boy" system in certain areas.
long days working in a break terminal, but you get compensated well monetarily for it. Great atmosphere for co-workers, management very personable, and approachable. The company hired me with no experience, and invested time, and allowed for advancement.

Central dispatch line-haul supervisor (Current Employee), Richmond, VAMay 15, 2014
Pros: our work at night was always goverened by out attitudes and knowledge and judgment
Cons: i had no beef with our inside daily routine.;.we ate our lunch between phone calls
I worked 2000 to o800 4 days a week. The terminals were the worst element in the daily chain of events to deal with. The personnel were very non-nonchalant and many uneducated as to their responsibilities. We tried to "learn" them over the phone, but that is not the same as having someone by their side to show the way.

When the terminals could finally – more... let us know what they were making, then central dispatch could function with more clarity. sometimes we chase a load that show on the screen and it disappears without notice.

The moving of many loads o ltl and especially direct loads to destination was always gratifying. – less

Terminal Clerk (Current Employee), TNApril 15, 2014
Pros: good pay. good benefits.
Cons: unfair management practices.
Good pay. Good benefits. The downside is favoritism for some employees for reasons you can't quite pinpoint. Preferred shifts and other things that should be based on seniority are not. People who do not work well with others or do all the required job duties are kept on which makes others have to do three times the work. Some (favorite) employees are – more... taught tons of new skills which will help them when promotions are available while others who ask and beg to be taught new skills are treated poorly and as if they are not intelligent enough to earn the new job skills. This could be limited to this terminal but it is extremely poor management and only hurts the company as a whole. Why hold down good people? Why not train everyone equally and fairly? – less
