Assembler (Former Employee) – Janesville, WI – March 9, 2017
A typical day at work was me starting up the line with an ATV Gator at the first station putting parts on the unit. I learned how to assemble ATV Gators. Management needs improvement. The hardest part of the job opening and closing of the racks that the Gators were on. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with good people.

A lot of false promises. Trucks are pathetically slow and under-powered. Breakdown dept is horrible. If you breakdown expect to sit on the side of the road for several hours. If you don't report mechanical issues you could get written up and suspended, but when you do report problems it takes several breakdown reports to get the mechanics to fix the problem. If you have a minor problem with your truck, breakdown usually tells you that it'll get fixed next time the truck goes into service and when it goes into service it doesn't get fixed. Then you have to waste your time and money to go back to the shop to get them to do what they should have done in the first place.
No load no miles no money they ask you to run eligle all the time if you do money is there you don't you get no loads that pay unorganized rude people and I would not refer anyone to work there just a awful company
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Ardmore, OK – July 23, 2016
I was a forklift driver in the Ardmore facility that handled Michelin products....you aren't allowed to make ANY mistakes in your learning process....if you do...it's immediate termination....I was employed 5-6 months and in that time I had an EXTREME family emergency that called for me to leave middle of my shift and miss the next day.....which I add was.the only discrepancy I had at all....upon returning next shift I was informed I had been terminated.....NO REASON,NO EXPLANATION,nothing.... the management team are completely biased and favor employees greatly....they have such a huge turnover rate....4-5 people came and went on my shift alone...I literally was worried about losing my job for every little tiny thing wrong.....
driver (Former Employee) – Spartanburg, SC – July 19, 2016
Was told $200 a day average not if you're on nights I asked for more work and there isn't any we were told we would have our own truck but I was bounced around cleaning up each truck there's no maintenance system is place for the trucks and bad communications between office people and drivers
I enjoy every day at my job. Our drivers are great to deal with. The management is great and will support you to grow in your position. Sonoco Account Manager is a great guy and a very hard worker. I'm glad to be here,
Counter associate (Former Employee) – Richmond, va – September 15, 2015
Management is poor they do not care about most employees. High turnover rate. In Richmond Virginia. Overall terrible place to work for don't waste your time with this one. Bring in friends and everyone else is left stuck in the same position.
Driver (Current Employee) – Greeneville, TN – September 2, 2015
like going home, I get up and get my load and take it to get it unloaded, or drop and hook. And I do not see the other two drivers. The most thing I like about my job is I start early and get off early, and I am salary.
The money is good, the miles are plentiful, but the equipment is complete trash.....over 30 trucks in the shop. Fleet managers are unorganized. I used to get home the day I put in for. Now I go home 1-2 AFTER I the requested home time and end up working during my home time. Won't be long before I let this go
Fleet Manager (Former Employee) – Hartsville,SC – February 23, 2015
Landair promises the world and delivers nothing.. Promise advancement but give you nothing.. Operations Manager is a trained puppet with strings being pulled by the higher ups. No respect for drivers.. Load Planners have no clue where anything is ? Sending trucks crossing paths everyday.. Lowest paying Trucking company in the area by far..
Poor Managment, No Respect, Opinion is not heard much less valued...
spotter (Former Employee) – ardmore oklahoma – September 18, 2014
I worked in ardmore oklahoma spotting trailers on receiving docks for michilen tires the work part of the job was super great the supervisors was on the other hand not very great people we're treated poorly even when they were doing a good job i had 3 checks that were shorted on hours and it would take three weeks to get paid back from mistakes they would make and know this $15 dollars an hour is max pay you will never grow in pay or position but hey if you like to punch a time clock and be home every night day after day after day this is the job for you
