Great employees!
Route Sales Driver (Former Employee) –  West Sacramento, CAJune 4, 2016
Fellow drivers and dock staff work very hard to help each other out in order to deliver on the promise to customers. Just need to have the company replace the local West Sacramento Terminal Manager. Sadly lacks social skills with employee base and has anger issues.
Other management is outstanding!!
Bob Zimmerman is a man of character and taking this company to greater heights....
I would strongly recommend RL Carriers to those in the industry.
Pros
Hard working employees
Cons
Local TM

great work environment and camaraderie
Evening Dock Worker (part-time) (Current Employee) –  South Bend, INMay 24, 2016
The most enjoyable part of the job is the fast-paced, "team work" oriented work environment. The hardest part of the job is the unpredictable hours at times-especially around the holidays- but it's good being busy and not watching the clock.

Fast paced workplace that makes the time fly
Forklift Operator/Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Syracuse, NYMay 17, 2016
I typically work a 5 hour shift and it feels like it goes by very quick because we are usually very busy at work. I work a small outbound operation with 1 other guy and a dock supervisor who I enjoy working with. We dont communicate much unless it has to do with something on the dock, but we are too busy to stop and talk for the most part. The hardest part of my job is getting pieces to fit on trailers that wont or will just barely fit and making sure they are secure. The most enjoyable part is sitting on my lift and pulling freight off the back of a trailer, it is easy and not physically challenging in any way.
Pros
Pays well hourly
Cons
No full time or insurance benefits offered

dim view of change, don't rock the boat
Dock Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Miami, FLMay 10, 2016
The company frowns on change and innovation. If you are looking for a static position with little room to grow this is for you.
Management is not loyal to it,s supervisors.

CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDMay 10, 2016
A typical day at work with a lot of backstabbing. Some of the supervisors talk down to you and their drivers as well as customers

No training, no rules enforced, sucking up is good
Supervisor (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOApril 21, 2016
If you like kissing but to get to where you want to end up in the company this is the company for you. They demand a lot out of every employee and if you are willing to work harder than expect to be fully exploited for your ability and then watch inadequate coworkers do as they choose to w no recourse.
Pros
Free resorts.
Cons
Healthcare is poor, pay is average for industry.

High Pressure Sales Environment
ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXApril 20, 2016
Office out of your home. It is a high pressure, results oriented atmosphere, but lacks leadership at the director and executive levels. We mostly work independently, so there is limited interaction with other sales reps. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the incompetence of the operations. The most enjoyable part is the flexibility of the work day.

Very Fast paced poor training
Freight Handler (Former Employee) –  Sauget, ILApril 10, 2016
Management pushes you very hard , upper management are sh t talkers no breaks for part time 6 hours shift ,
you unload your trailer ( DUMP IT ) just to get one piece of HOT freight (DUMB) they still use paper manifest for each trailer WOW
Very poorly ran , high turn around , very under staffed ,people quit every day , very stressful work place .
Every man for himself mentality on the floor , you run out of gas you walk and get your on tank ( pathetic )
Hourly pay isn't bad $ 12.98 to start , but they can't keep employees , I made it six weeks , your clothes are filthy , plus theirs a click with some employees
, if you take the job stay part time no part time employees want a full time positions their
because there is no overtime pay at all no matter what you work in a week even anything over 40 hours you just get straight pay . Starting pay is $ 11.70 hour for full time because of insurance benefits . If you call off they want you to make it up in that week , but you only work 30 hours a week part time . If you can drive a forklift , they'll hire you , they don't do drug test either . Guarantee work thought no layoffs , if you need a job , give them a try , maybe your experience will be better than mine
Pros
Decent pay
Cons
No break poor working conditions poorly managed

Stone Age company
Forklift operator (Former Employee) –  Lebanon, PAApril 5, 2016
This is a very poorly run company .managers/ supervisors never know what they're doing. equipment is outdated, no health insurance .they will work you to the last second to kick you out just to not pay for your health insurance. This company is still stuck in the Stone Age. In the short time that I was there a month has seen more than 10 people come and go in a short period of time this tells you a lot.

Horrible Place To Work
Driver (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXMarch 24, 2016
Currently work for company as line haul driver. No one communicates. They assign you a truck but when you come in to start your shift that truck has been assigned to some driver from the temp service. They force you to do swaps which take you about 2 hours to do because of traffic which by the way is not hourly. It pays $29. Then you have to sit around up to 5 hours if not longer for your load (which is always late) and you don't get paid for waiting. Don't let the pay rate confuse you. We are the lowest paid in the freight business.
Pros
Equipment
Cons
Pay and Route Pay
