Organized and very sociable environment to help complete given duties
Dock Loader (Former Employee), Westampton NJJuly 28, 2014
Overall, the job was pretty easy to accomplish the given tasks that I received. The management wasn't the best, but everyone took pride in their work. I've learned a great deal of patience working at New Century. My only dislike is the unfair treatment of dedicated workers who lost their job due to the poor management decisions which led to filing chapter – more... 7. – less

This was most times an enjoyable place to work. There were also sometimes that could be a little stressful.
Load Planner (Former Employee), Westampton, NJJuly 11, 2014
I enjoyed going to work everyday. I would start by trying to set all the work up for other load planners. I would plan the loads for delivery, manifest the loads. We sometimes had relays for some of the loads and I would set up the drivers for the relay. We also had shuttles that we would interline with another company and I would have to communicate – more... with these people daily. My co-workers were all friendly and we would help each other out when we could. – less

Worked there for 10 years and loved the job.
Cartage Supervisor (Former Employee), Westampton, NJJune 25, 2014
Pros: working with a good group of people
Cons: issues with other departments that had an impact on the cartage dept.
Worked there for many years, helped to develop the Cartage department and process the daily functions, I.e.: Reports, tracking and related customer details, including rates and billing functions.

Management and the workers were all a good team of dedicated people.

The hardest part of the job keeping up with the tons of emails.

The most enjoyable – more... part of the job was getting situations solved. – less

Once was a dream job
Dock Worker (Former Employee), Westampton, NJJune 25, 2014
Pros: appreciation, compensation
Cons: investment firm owned
When I started at New Century it was a dream job. Great pay good mgmt and lots of work. It was a fun place to work and the people were a joy to work with we definitely had our A game going and could handle anything.Our pay continued to grow with the companies success and we always felt appreciated. We continually worked 12+ hours a day for several years – more... in the beginning to get the job done.Hardest part of the job must have been making some of the loads work they were difficult to say the least at times. It was common to be loading 60 or more pallets on one load and throw a couple large crates in there for good measure. We stacked and packed all road loads to maximize use of trailer space. We were very good at what we did! After several years of loving this company things changed, and investment firm took control of the company and everything changed it became all about the bottom line and making profit for the share holders. It was the downfall of a great company. It is a shame I actually was looking forward to retiring from here.As of now the company no longer exist due to the investment firm pulling out and banckrupting the company. – less

What doesn't suck about working for New Century? I can't think of a thing!
Office (Current Employee), Westampton, NJJanuary 24, 2014
Cons: everything
Nothing good about it - low pay - benefits are not good unless you consider $70/wk for health cov good, management is poor - no raises in a long time and they do not forsee it happening anytime soon - no respect given. Most people here are in the same boat and do not want to be here. I am just riding the clock! YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR NEW CENTURY!!

Hectic around dispatch windows in and outbound.TV lounge and showers available. Food delivery to terminal with variety to choose from.
OTR Truck Driver (Former Employee), Westampton, NJJanuary 24, 2014
Pros: occasional pizza weekend pizza lunch from dispatch. sometimes doughnuts.
Cons: some office people in posistions that had no clue as to the operations of trucking, just paper pushers.
Spent a lot of time away from home. Some dispatchers were great other had no clue. Management didn't care about the drivers only that they made money.Pay was good benefits okay not the best. Too many, rumors of closing or speculation on people being fired or quitting. But that is life as an OTR driver.

Very poor IT Department
Developer (Former Employee), WestamptonJanuary 23, 2014
Cons: long hours, poor pay, poor benefits, and even poorer management.
Company was purchased by an equity company and installed rather dubious management.
Seems like they are trying to squeeze every dollar from anywhere.
The IT department is headed by people who are in way over their heads.
I would strongly recommend staying away from this company.
