Every business has its own style. What is the office environment and culture like at Con-way?

Are people dressed in business casual, jeans and t-shirts, or full-on suits? Do folks get together for Friday happy hours and friendly get-togethers?

What is a typical day in the life of an employee at Con-way?

Newer employees are forced to drive around all day in truck WITHOUT air conditioning.
Employees are also required to call in every morning to see what time they go in to work.

Corporation is attempting culture change emphasizing a safety conscious environment with change being driven by input from the bottom up. Granted, culture change takes time. Management is on-board with the safety message, but culture change hits a brick wall with the bottom up input concept. Suggestions or issues brought up are denied and deemed as being nonexistent, thereby eliminating need for extra effort required for problem solving. If lower level employee insists that issue needs addressing, employee is labeled as having a "bad attitude." Minneapolis region has many employees with "bad attitudes," that is, they want to implement improvements and see better efficiency, but managers do not receive monetary rewards for addressing such issues, so they dismiss them. Management reward incentives need to be adjusted for the culture change to really take effect. Otherwise, it's business as usual.

DSR (Former Employee), Rockford, IL – February 6, 2014
Pros: pay, weekends off, home daily(though only long enough to sleep)Cons: horrible treatment, cameras in cabs, no breaks
Long days without breaks, they call all their employes DSR's (Driver Sales Representative) do to a loophole in the labor laws that state labor laws do not apply to sales reps, if you work the dock all day and decide to take a break after 12 hours they can and WILL fire you for stealing company time!

Aside from being treated horribly this is a great place to make money if you cant find a driving job elsewhere, they start at $20hr (or $0.42mi for LH) and work you 60-70hrs a week whether you like it or not, If you work on linehaul plan on sitting on the side of the road for a few hours every Saturday morning because they WILL run you out of hours every Friday night.

They will hire people fresh out of driving school so this is a good place to get the 1-2 years driving experience that other companies require! –
