Older company not able to compete in current market
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Colorado Springs, COSeptember 29, 2018
An older union company that is struggling to maintain its position in the market.Tremendous disadvantage with non union competitors due to its extra costs due to union labor. They have created savings by reducing the number of non union jobs and pay. Non union employees are second class citizens here, the company kowtows to the union employees at the non union employees expense. Old, outdated equipment makes it hard to get the job done due to frequent breakdowns and the repair expenses are exorbitant and get taken right out of the bottom line. This affects the profit numbers which affect bonus potential. Its a negative that you can't control but is used to downrate employee performance. Management is paid once a month which I didn't even know existed anymore.
Pros
Good training
Cons
12 hour work days, required to work on your days off with no compensation.

Terrible company all around
Operations Supervisor I (Former Employee) –  United StatesSeptember 14, 2018
Do you like long hours with lazy unappreciative upper management? Do you enjoy being scapegoated after being thrust into a position you weren't prepared for? Do you like being lied to and bullied by people who could never do what you do in a thousand lifetimes? Welcome to ABF where you'll work an overnight shift where you have to work 65 hours a week. You'll find the management is "old school" which means they like to take long vacations, sit in their offices and go out on lunches every day while you handle the difficult, dirtier aspects of the job. Don't believe the hype around advancement, if you don't know someone in upper management you'll be stuck in a terrible position for upwards of two years. You'll be constantly expected to prove yourself to a group of people who don't know anything about your job but expect results. To top it off you'll be managing a union workforce that gets away with anything while you struggle to just keep your head above water.
Pros
Industry Knowledge
Cons
Long hours, Lazy incompetent management, unrealistic expectations and poor pay for the hours you work

City Driver (Current Employee) –  Columbus, OHSeptember 6, 2018
Hard work rewarded with other peoples work being dumped on you. Try to do a good job and your expected to do far more than your share. Management has no interest in addressing problems with problem employees.
Pros
Money, insurance
Cons
Everything else
