FAF, Inc. is not ready to support 'Company Driver' positions.
Cons: poorly maintained, and or old company trucks assigned to new company drivers.
1) "a typical day at work": When, and if the manager(s) decided that assigned Truck would or would not be repaired, the wait to get into the assigned repair shop was ridiculous.
2) "what you learned": My time was wasted at Forward Air, Inc.; the company was definitely not ready to take on a 'Company Driver' operation; based on the age, and or condition of the Trucks offered to this Driver. Those Trucks should have either been repaired or traded in.
3) "management": Management appears to have long term job security with the company.
4) "your co-workers": That would be Dispatchers; Yard-workers; Truck, and Trailer Maintenance Department personnel; other office personnel, all appear to have secure long term employment.
5) "the hardest part of the job": Waiting for maintenance, and or for management to decide whether or not to have the maintenance performed on the assigned Trucks. Trying to contact personnel, within various departments by phone; long wait times, too much voice mail with no return calls. Being terminated from my job for doing the job right.
6) "the most enjoyable part of the job": Knowing that I gave my very best efforts when doing my job, and hoping that the employees, and or management would take the appropriate measures to turn the situation around resulting in a better outcome for those involved.
