Great place to work if you like working for free
OTR Truck Driver (Former Employee), Anderson, SCAugust 26, 2015
Pros: Great upper management
Cons: Poor attitude from dispatch
First payroll was not received until my fourth week employed even though this is a weekly paid company. Steady inquiry about my pay was met with hostile attitude from some employees, upper management did correct situation when they were finally contacted about it. Took four weeks to be paid and dispatch had an attitude because I refused to go back on the road with no money.

Was an OK company to work for, but the upper level management was constantly struggling and the turnover was about every 6 months. Lost the contract.

I very much enjoyed what I was doing with drivers and delivery challanges and was very successful, but upper management had too high a turnover and wasn't very supportive.

Worst Job You'll ever have.
Band Saw Operator (Current Employee), Ontario, CaliforniaAugust 15, 2014
Pros: lunch room was nice and air conditioned
Cons: everything
Around ninety percent of the employees do not speak English,
when the managers and supervisors have meeting with the employees they only speak in Spanish, leaving the ten percent of employees who cannot speak or understand be left out and confused.

Management is awful and unorganized i took almost two weeks working there for the manager to realized who i was and that i was working there.

Couldn't understand any of my co-workers because they did not speak English.

Hardest part of the job was figuring out what your duty is for that day because I could not understand my supervisors.

There was not a single enjoyable part of this job.

Billing Auditor (Current Employee), Dallas, TXMarch 16, 2014
A typical day at work is helping the terminal process the daily information for the drivers to be paid.

The hardest part is trying to get the drivers to turn in paper work.

The challenge
Logistical Analyst (Former Employee), Indianola, MSFebruary 20, 2014
Pros: being acknowledged for work ethic.
Cons: staff losing motivation
Researching and cold calling. I enjoyed the analytical side of numbers. Sometimes numbers make more sense to me than having a conversation. Management felt threatened when another companny was going to take over within a year of moving on the D.C property. The writing was on the wall and I came on in the last months with the company. Staff lost interest in doing their job. The most enjoyable part was being exposed supply-side economics of business.

Encouraged individual management style as long as it provided results
Safety Manager (Former Employee), Harrisburg, PAFebruary 7, 2014
Allowed to manage employees based on what worked at individual terminals and encouraged idea and SOP sharing. Standard results were required across the board, but individuality was encouraged in reaching those goals. Reaching allocated goals were more of a challenge when the territories increased in size and locations of the territories were scattered haphazardly.

I absolutely loved working for Greatwide Logistics.
Fleet Supervisor & Operations Coordinator (Former Employee), Dallas, TXDecember 31, 2013
Pros: compensation days
Cons: layoffs and merger with cardinal
The typical day at Greatwide consist of talking with drivers, assigning them to routes and tracking them as well. Manage drivers E-training, physicals, and setting them up as well. Involves a lot of paper work, that includes trip sheets and driver logs (some through peoplenet). The management at Greatwide Corporate are great communicators and manage well through positive team work. I worked the night shift for the TOC department with an awesome team. They are the best co-works I have ever worked with. The hardest part of the job are always the fast pace holiday schedule especially if we are short drivers.
