Company doesnt balance the recognition of efforts
Multiple Locations Manager (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLAugust 16, 2017
The hardest part of the job is not having enough time to spend with family. As manager you basically have to work 7 days a week. You have to be available late evening hours.
Pros
Expenses refunded inmediatly
Cons
Stressful job

More than just a job
Location Manager (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCAugust 2, 2017
I have worked "jobs" at many companies in the past, but UST was different. The opportunities presented were something that I could work at and grow into a career.

UST provides a fast paced challenging career. You will get out of it what you put into it.
Pros
Fast Paced, Time off including sick days and family days, family environment
Cons
Because things move so quickly sometimes in this business proper communication is constant work

Right Idea, Poorly Executed
Anonymous (Former Employee) –  AnonymousJuly 17, 2017
Try spending a little more money and intentionality with your people; it might help the number of people you turn over. Good leadership mixed with poor leadership never balances out positively.

Terrible company to work for!
Location Manger (Current Employee) –  Daytona Beach, FLJune 29, 2017
Take a job with UST and you give up your home life. Expectation is 12-14 hours a day, 6 days a week. Micro managed to the smallest detail. They don't let you manage. In my interview, I was told that UST cares about the time you spend with family. So not true.
Cons
Micro managed, no family time.

Three Ring Circus
Location Manager (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAMarch 30, 2017
This place is a joke. The advertisement as well as the interview is packaged really well which makes it very very mis-leading. The turnover for the Location Manager position is outrageous. Don't waste your time if you know you are of high quality and caliber. The salary alone is insulting. However, you have to try things for yourself to really know what the inside is like. $65,000 should be the minimum to deal with this setup. 12 to 14 hour days to include Saturdays is normal. That's the only way to get it all done and manage the processes properly.
Pros
Only 4 to 5 trucks
Cons
Poor training, Tossed in to see if you can handle

Would not recommend to my worst enemy!!!
Routing Specialist (Former Employee) –  Greenville, SCDecember 8, 2016
The management here is absolutely horrific; they are lazy and unmotivated, not to mention incredibly ungrateful. They will frequently make promises that they never intend to keep. There is an extreme amount of favoritism in their office and most likely, you'll be treated as though you're entirely dispensable. All the while, listening to management complain about their turnover rate and wondering why they can't keep employees. The CEO is a good guy but, he definitely needs to re-evaluate his staff.

Good ole Boy System
Location Manager (Former Employee) –  Greensboro, NCNovember 14, 2016
UST is a company that does not care about their employees. The experience as far as the work itself is very laid back. I learned a lot about DOT regulations. Your coworkers all spread rumors about what they think they know. The hardest part of the job is maintaining the CSAT scores. The most enjoyable part is easy work overall.
Pros
Easy work, great advancement opportunities
Cons
Benefits aren't good, The company doesn't want to pay you what you are worth, You have to be apart of the good ole boy system to move up, They do not notify you when there is a layoff.

Horrible Company
Dispatcher (Current Employee) –  Beaumont, TXSeptember 20, 2016
I've been with UST for almost a year and in that time I've gotten looked over for numerous positions. All of which they've given to a man after mysteriously deleting some and then placing me in the other just to get it started... I would only recommend this job to a man with low self esteem, who's coughing and doesn't have or doesn't plan to have a family EVER. You are always on call, never enjoy your off days and goodness forbid that you not response in a timely manner on your personal time. No matter which position you choose, it's stressful and very time consuming

Ability to run my business as my own with an outstanding support network.
Location Manager (Former Employee) –  Asheville, NCMarch 27, 2016
Working with a team of dedicated individuals made for a great work environment. The key to success within the company was to own your decisions and run your business like it was yours. If you are a self starter that doesn't need to be told what to do and how to do it and you want to succeed in the transportation industry then UST is a great place to work. Every day is different and the owner of the company is a true hands on kind of guy that values your input and recognizes performance and success.
Pros
Flexible schedule and a good balance of work/family time.
Cons
In order to truly succeed you should be able to relocate.

Run Away fast!
delivery supervisor (Former Employee) –  Avondale, AZMarch 22, 2016
This company is requires you to work on and off clock. You will sacrifice your own life so that your manager can have a life. The management is very lazy and plays favorites constantly all the while gossiping and making jokes at the expense of their employees. The Avondale location is the worse. It is a very high school type of enviroment. The women in managment want to push you around so that they dont have to work.
Pros
none
Cons
no lunches, no breaks, no weekends ever, gossiping co-workers, etx

Always on the clock
Location Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Harrisburg, PAMarch 7, 2016
If you enjoy family time, this is not the job for you. Always on call and on the clock and if you don't answer, the emails will start filling your inbox. No support from regional managers on up. If you want to hate your job on a daily basis, apply here.
Pros
Decent pay
Cons
Always on call, No upper management support

Every day I take incoming calls from delivery teams with delivery issues to be resolved. I ensure that they complete each delivery with in the time frame.
