Nice Place To Work
Scheduling / Routing Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Aston PAFebruary 8, 2019
It was a nice place to work, not a lot of room for advancement though. Could be boring at times and dealing with the general public for deliveries could be hard
Pros
Supportive Managers
Cons
Could be slow at times

Bad contracted workers i.e.UNION SCUM
Driver (Former Employee) –  Omaha, NEJanuary 3, 2019
Benefits are great, pay is great, management is limited in employee structure. You work with the bottom of the barrel workers. What happen's when you can't get fired? Lazy,apathetic, ungrateful work force with no bar for how low you can go.

Need a career? This is the place.
Road Driver (Former Employee) –  Carlisle, PAJanuary 2, 2019
ABF gave me the tools and education I needed to perform my job.
Management is willing to work with, and help you perform your job.
The hours are long, and performed mostly at night.
Overall, if you don't mind working long hours away from family, this is not a bad job. The benefits and salary will more than compensate.
Pros
Set own goals. No one staring over your shoulder while you work.
Cons
Long hours, mostly overnight. Time away from family.

Sales Representative
Inside Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLDecember 20, 2018
I was very fortunate to begin my logistics career at ABF Freight. The Jacksonville office VP was a positive presence onsite. I still remember her saying, "When you're ripe, you rot, and when you're green, you grow." Meaning the team members should always strive to keep learning and bettering ourselves. Mistakes are expected as long as we grow from them.
My direct manager always took time to explain operational info and personally help team members with customer issues, which allowed us to understand how to handle those in the future. Her knowledge of LTL tariffs, Rules tariffs, and Accessorials was instrumental in building my career into an operational one after the ABF Jacksonville office closed.
Pros
Leadership and Management, Training, Culture
Cons
Compensation, growth opportunities

Unions are great for slackers,but if you are a good worker,Abf is not for you
Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Sauk Village, ILDecember 2, 2018
l worked 28 years for Abf as a mechanic in the shop.The management sucked! For the future mechanics out there,if you're a slacker,Abf is the place for you.The more you do the more they give you to do.Instead of getting after the slackers they would over work the guys that worked. I would never refer anyone to work there,even if they bribed me with their 750 dollar finders fee!

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.

more goal driven then customer service
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Aston, PASeptember 22, 2018
not afraid to let people go if unrealistic goals weren't met. Put people in management roles that are not qualified. Customers were not put first. Company as a whole was a good place to work for.
Pros
good salary
Cons
unrealistic goals

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
