Owner/Operator (Former Employee), Groveport, OH – January 12, 2015
A typical work day actually starts in the evening. This company is mostly night driving. That is the hardest part of this job. Adjusting to the night driving schedule. this is a 99% drop and hook outfit. the best part of this job is you make your own schedule and the compensation is second to none. I definately fine tuned my time management here. Late deliveries are frowned upon.
I worked for an air freight forwarder at Dulles in the adjoining building to Forward Air we did many freight pick ups & local deliveries there. Very busy place seemed to be well run considering the amount of freight that flowed through there daily.probably a dozen docks & you were lucky if you found an open 1when you pulled up. Us being their neighbors we had a bit of an IN ! & a bit of preferential treatment but if you don't like fast paced and long hours air freight is not the business or career you should be in. If they weren't in a hurry for it they wouldn't be sending it by air. cant be thin skinned either no around there took sensitivety101 LOL. IAD Rocks!
Import Specialist (Former Employee), Charleston, SC – October 27, 2014
This company will challenge you in many ways, good and bad. The Charleston terminal tends to be disorganized and dysfunctional. The hardest part of the job is trying to maintain organization and keep up with the workload, amongst the many obstacles in place.
Benefits are okay.Most of the managers are morons!!!!
dock worker (Current Employee), Desplaines Illinois – October 23, 2014
Cons: the management!!!
Dock manager is an idiot that has no business being in the position he's in. He hires all his family and friends and puts them in office positions.The warehouse manager micro manages everything.The dock lead shouldve been fired ten years ago and the night managers a chain smoking psychopath with no communication skills.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee), Humble, TX – October 4, 2014
Pros: very active job moving alot
I enjoyed working here, I meet alot of new people and worked very hard. The hardest part about this job is that it was extremely hot in the warehouse and you were basically lifting very heavy boxes and or crates. You would sweat non stop. I enjoyed most about the job were the people they kept you going, very humorous.
Package Handler (Former Employee), Irving, TX – September 22, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: some job assignments require no days off
a typical day on the job would consist of receiving your job assignment according to the jobsite check in the number of temp workers assigned to you complete the task at hand with quality and in a timely manner . coworkers are great normally people who were trained with you the hardest thing would have to b keeping up with employees on big sites sometimes they get a little lost and the most enjoyable thing would have to be the work flow
Warehouse Dock Staff/Delivery (Former Employee), Lakeland, FL – September 10, 2014
Pros: fantastic pay, great overtime
Cons: zero benefits, and advancement opportunity
Standard days at work consisted of matching routes to trucks and loading freight in a timely manner. I learned the value of teamwork and how to use a handheld scanner. What little interaction with management I had was always pleasant, as were my coworkers. The hardest part of my job was learning all of the truck routes, however the most enjoyable part was how rewarding the work felt.
