OPERATIONS SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – August 15, 2017
Reddaway is the least paying, yet most expensive company to work for. They punish you if you complain about being treated unfairly. Management only cares about their bonuses so the hire the worst cleaning crews, they no longer use a pest control so we used to find scorpions, rats, camel spiders, and roaches so big your could ride them!
Good learning experience, you'll learn all about trucking and you can then go to a better company
Management is horrible, they do not care about their employees.
LTL Route Driver (Current Employee) – Meridian, ID – September 8, 2017
I have worked for this company for 6 years and the management is the worst I have ever seen at the corporate and local level. They tell you safety is number one.... however when it comes to being safe they do not do it. You will never see your family do to the long tedious hours and they are unwilling to work with you if you have family emergencies. And they have been on a 15% wage cut for the last 10 years. There is absolutely no room for advancement in this company. The company is financially unstable and according to them they will go out of business unless employees take a pay cut on the last union contract.
bad management, bad hours, bad pay, no advancement
Revenue Management Customer Support (Former Employee) – Tualatin, OR – August 7, 2017
I started out at Reddaway as a temp employee, and was later hired on as a full time employee after someone in my particular department moved positions. The employee environment was very poor, no one seemed to really enjoy their job and it would show in their attitudes and work performance. On top of that, compensation was very low. I wouldn't recommend anyone to work here.
Employees very enthusiastic about doing best job possible.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Tualatin, OR – June 25, 2017
Typical day involved many phone calls from a variety of customers demanding a variety of services. I learned that quest for excellence sometimes at odds with expected time requirements per call. Leads very good at providing assistance and supervision. The higher up the management the bigger chasm between employee satisfaction and employer expectations. Culture is one of expecting more from employees as workforce is decreased. Hardest part was trying to maintain unrealistic statistical standards. Most enjoyable was working with colleagues who shared my desire for excellence. Colleagues supported each other.

Would not work for this company now. Used to be a great place to work: now it's terrible everyone Is so stressed out no one to help no one wants to stay working high high turnover no raises no nothing but wants you to work your tail off for them. Just terrible
Account Executive (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – May 11, 2017
Its a great job. Customer based relationships, paid entertainment expenses, and mileage reimbursement but the job is high stress and lots of follow up with both the customer and ops. Ops more than most of time couldnt produce in my operating terminal unfortunately.
P.M. City Dispatch/Field Linehaul Coordinator (Former Employee) – Henderson, CO – March 30, 2017
Reddaway is just like any other LTL carrier with one big exception. The pay. The hourly and salary rates are far less than anyone in the business, and it isn't even close. Not competitive in the market, higher than average turnover, and no real training provided to any new employees with the exception of the drivers.
Healthcare paid for by the company for fulltime hourly employees
You are just a number at this company and they don't care about you!
Line Haul Driver (Current Employee) – Fresno, CA – March 29, 2017
In this company all employees are underpaid compared to the rest of the industry. Workers are treated like they are a dime a dozen. You are expected to be on call 6 days a week, sitting by your phone ready to go. If there isn't any work for that night then you are told to stay home and don't get paid. Management or the safety department won't stick up for their employees.
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – February 8, 2017
They were a good company but they picked favorites over the overall quality of an employee's abilities. You can have good scores accross the board but that does not help employess. They like to push you around to a point you want to quit. They were fair in wages and benefits but as far as giving employees what they deserve.. It is something overlooked.
Line Haul Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – January 30, 2017
I was on the extra Board. So I would wait for a phone call in the morning. I they did not have a run for me in the morning I would wait for a call at night. After you know where you are going you go in and find the truck you are taking, do you pre-trip, then wait for your paper work. After getting your paper work you go hook up to your trailers, after you finish your pre-trip on trailers you are on your way to you destination.
Never know where you are going from one day to the next. No assigned trucks for extra board drivers.
Negative work enviroment and dis-jointed management
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Tualatin, OR – January 7, 2017
If you're considering working here, please turn around now. Overall, I scored this place with two stars. The work life is very stressful and regulated, very little lee-way is offered in consideration that you are a human and not a robot. The health insurance is great, but one has to wonder if that is so, because of the stress put on the employees. The company is resistant to the advancement of employees and will find any reason not to advance workers. Job Security may have been good at one time, but for data entry/customer service this is being out sourced to over seas. Management is never consistent, honest, or clear. It changes frequently. There is never a clear chain of authority, lots of power struggle because of the large over-seeing staff. Overall co-workers are kind and courteous but there is a definite cast-system at play, making the culture undesirable.
Management, unclear authority structure (too many people "in-charge", very little value of personel

Manager (Current Employee) – Tualatin, OR – August 21, 2016
The culture is terrible, as well as, the executive team. They could care less about their employees and are discriminatory. The HR team is bought out by the executives and there is no where to go if you have an issue. For those that plan on sticking up for your rights under the employment laws to protect against the abuse of companies like this, plan on being fired!
