Not very organized
Semi- truck driver (Former Employee), Grand Rapids, MIOctober 9, 2013
no one knows what they are doing, the dispatcher don't care about the drivers, the company has no safety rules, all they care about is that the freight gets out there.

Forklift operator (Former Employee), Elk Grove Village, ILJuly 3, 2013
Pros: good pay, good hours, great people
Cons: job security
A typical day at work for Towne air freight consisted of obtaining labels and papers that detailed the contents of the truck. The contents of that truck are then labeled and transferred to another trailer where it will be transported to its intended destination. Co-workers were decent guys. The hardest part about this job is trying to maintain a fast – more... pace in dealing with freight. The most enjoyable part of this job was the camaraderie between fellow co-workers. – less

Loading Operator (Former Employee), Houston, TXApril 19, 2013
A typical day at work is generally okay until things begin to fall apart due to poor manaement decisions. Co-Workers were not so friendly so that for me was the most difficult part of the job. The best part to me was the rate of pay and driving my forklift.

Weekend Dispatcher / Dock Worker (Current Employee), Eagan, MNMarch 19, 2013
The people are good to work with. Typical day is lading trailers with a forklift. After so many years of loading is it seems to be easy and enjoying work. Loading a trailer is like putting a puzzle together.
