Drayage Clerk & Linehaul Driver (Current Employee) –  Memphis, TNSeptember 19, 2017
I started off in an office position and then became a driver. The hours are extremely difficult as a driver, constantly switching from days to nights and only one day off a week. Driving is not the life for me, but kudos to those that love to drive.
Pros
Good management
Cons

Pickup and Delivery Clerk (Current Employee) –  Saint Charles, MOSeptember 18, 2017
I love the job I do. Would like to have better pay and a little more time off but the benefits are pretty good. Management is willing to work with the individual on private matters and they have an open door policy. They do their best to keep the property clean and safe. They keep up on maintenance on the truck, trailers and dollies. They do their best to help the world keep promises

Operations (Former Employee) –  WisconsinAugust 31, 2017
Loved working for OD for the most part. Was there for years with promises of getting a promotion. Never happened. Excuses were made as to why. Management had clear favorites. Very clicky and lots of drama. If you ignore those things, it is a wonderful company.
Pros
Great hours, benefits, company culture
Cons
Poor management

SVC Dockworker/Stacker (Former Employee) –  White Pine, TNAugust 23, 2017
Company talked a good game about the balance of work and home life but did not live up to it. Very poor management and work hours were terrible. Would not recommend working there if you have a family.

Not A Driver Friendly Environment
Truck Driver Class A (Former Employee) –  Lansing, MIAugust 14, 2017
My start-time could vary up to 6 hours daily. Never knowing when you were going to start till the night before. Equipment (tractor/trailer, pallet jacks, etc.) was in terrible condition. Optical/dental insurance was awful. Health insurance was mediocre at best. They don't pay OT, and require you to work a minimal of 45 hours, most weeks much more. Was not a driver friendly company...
Pros
Your first 40 hours of compensation
Cons
Everything else

Decent company
Diesel Mechanic Technician (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXAugust 10, 2017
Most coworkers were very good to work with.
Management was good hardly ever bothered you.
Pay was decent. Mid to high twentys.
Could easily settle in for long time.
Would be excellent company for less experienced techs lots of prevetive matainance.
Minor repairs running repairs.
If your diesel mechanic or journeyman. Might not be enough advanced diesel repair and troubleshooting.
Over all for most a great place to work. Don't need any tools a small tool cart or very small rollaway all you'd ever need.
Pros
Would be perfect for techs 1yrs to 5yrs experience get yout feet wet.
Cons
To many shift supervisors no overtime just striaght hourly
