The company overall isn't bad. They preach a lot about culture, but it's merely something good to talk about, but at the local level it's not practiced. If you know anything about LTL, it's your typical freight carrier. If you are a hard worker expect a heavy work load and a lot of late nights. Hard work is rewarded with more work. On the other hand, if you're lazy they will give you the easiest routes and can be assured most days to be off by 5:00 pm. The benefits are pretty good, with reasonable health insurance premiums, vacation, personal days, and off holidays. SEFL doesn't layoff so during the winter months expect to be rotated off at least once during the week, at some locations you could possibly only work three days a week but that doesn't happen very often but does happen. There is a lot of room for advancement here, I've seen dock workers throughout the years advance all the way up to terminal managers, but at the same time, the turnover rate for supervisors seem to be pretty high. Going into management at SEFL is virtually a career suicide, so just be cautious if your goal is to climb the ladder. To be successful you have to be in their "click."
Hard work seldom rewarded
