Expediter (Former Employee) – Buchanan, MI – April 10, 2015
didnt work long enough but the company is nice, it was just the owner of the cargo van that was unprofessional. You really have to understand the 60/40 split and be able to save on gas and food if you don't get paid a lot.
Clerical/Load Planner (Former Employee) – Buchanan, MI – July 28, 2014
A typical day included answering driver calls, mostly of complaints about not having a load or taking care of load issues. Instead of working together as a team, many employees from different departments would not help and got upset if assistance was needed. Managers "looked the other way" when some employees shopped online during working hours or played games on the computer, yet would write others up or even fire employees over issues more petty than games or shopping. Coworkers having affairs and harrassment were looked over. Not a good place of employment.
Owner/Operater (Former Employee) – Buchanan, MI – January 20, 2015
Express-1 is not for those who need a steady income. Even though all my deliveries were on-time and damage free, I spent most of my time sitting in a truck stop waiting for another load. Most time sitting was for 2-4 days (not making any money). Too many drivers and not enough loads. Great place for those who are retired and do not need constant work.
