Supervisor (Former Employee) – Humble, TX – June 21, 2017
My job duties were to arrive an hour early before my crew did to set up all equipment necessary to complete the task of that day. I had to motivate my crew to make sure that we met every quota that was given to us which was prone to change on a day to day basis. While also keeping my crew happy and dealing with the personal problems of my employees to ensure every worker is working at their fullest potential. I learned how to communicate with my employees and make a personal relationship with each of them. This allowed me to have a happier crew which led to a more productive one.
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Kent, WA – June 18, 2017
A typical day at Forward Air starts with a safety meeting and stretching. The daily responsibilities include unloading and scanning each piece of freight for destination and damage. Each piece would be staged until the end of the shift when all outbound trucks were loaded.
Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Des Plaines, IL – June 15, 2017
The day to day environment was normal for the most part, always busy loading and unloading trucks and taking care of customers. But management didn't seem to care for their associates only to look out for themselves as a corporation and not the people who made it what it is.

Customer Service Representative / Operations (Current Employee) – Elk Grove Village, IL – May 31, 2017
Understaffed demanding environment with no room to advance. Management expects the world of the little guys. Certain management plays favorites. If you can't work the hours they want you to, then oh well you may be out of a job. Small pay raises.
overtime due to shortstaffed
extended hours, not enough employees, some management isn't fair or understanding.
Driver and P&D (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – May 25, 2017
Company as a whole would be nice but the San Antonio,Tx division is run poorly. Office mgr disrespects and cast fear into employees. Their word is worthless you must get something in writing or you won't be honored.
management does'nt know how to treat employees, thats why theres a big turn over in dock workers and drivers
Horrible job. No training.. seemed more like a work release program than anything else. The supposed trainer basically insulted me and made me feel like I was an idiot. It was my first day and my next to last.
over just not a good company... just tear the freight all up
Dock Worker (Former Employee) – Grapevine, TX – May 18, 2017
Very very bad place to work.the management don't know what's going on. Office people don't know what's going on drivers don't know what's going on which convinced me to think I didn't know what was going on
some of the girls were cute
it's the only freight forwarding company in DFW that services more destinations than others
