Shipping and Receiving Clerk (Current Employee) – Napoleon, OH – May 22, 2018
The hours are there and the pay is decent. I enjoy my job but the stress can be a bit much, I think there are things needing addressed that could make for a better work environment. Consistency would be one, and advancements.
Technician (Former Employee) – PA – April 24, 2018
The company has to many Chiefs and not enough Indians. They promise training but that is a joke it's just an ego booster for the main instructor. The working employees are the only thing that makes it bearable to work there. Management want you to fix equipment right away but you have to wait on the most basic parts because they don't maintain a good parts inventory.
In my experience working at AIM I seen driver's come and go all the time. Every meeting was them telling you how they are going to have to cut the driver pay only to up the pay of the dispatcher and safety personnel. I worked at AIM for four plus years and the pay kept getting worse along with the way the treat their employees when it should work the other way around. I reached my top rate at 34 cents per mile in the first year. There is no opportunity or advancement at this company.
Logistics Clerk (Current Employee) – Gainesville, GA – December 11, 2017
They hire you and create a Clerk job title to keep from paying you a decent wage. I love the people I work with but they got a bargain with me. If they would see that I am an asset they would be able to keep me. But, the men rule.
Freedom to work 40 hours by noon on Friday and clock out.
Bent over backwards for this place management are a bunch of liars and I mean a bunch of liars make things up don't have nice equipment its a lie trucks are ran down they don't have enough trucks drivers fighting over the little work they have but go there at your own risk and I'm talking about aim services they part of the company is no good they will tell you any and everything but the truth in was a driver there did everything for this company still got lied too hate all of them.
Long hours, and not paid for sitting to get loaded.
Driver (Former Employee) – Youngwood, PA – September 5, 2017
If your new your getting the old equipment. The managers office is a little trailer located inside the Firestone garage in Youngwood. You don't get paid while you wait 3-4 hours to get loaded from the Firestone company. Stay away or if your desperate go for it.
Good route to drive and company maintained new equipment for drivers to use.
Class A CDL Linehaul Driver (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – August 18, 2017
Management was very deceptive. Client was very unorganized which led to consistent lateness. Management deceptively reassured me of long term job security and stability but after 6 months I woke up one morning with a phone call from management official located a few states away advising me that my route was eliminated. Loyalty no-longer exists in today's workforce regardless of how good of a job you do to make that company money. AIM integrated logistics and other companies are abusing the "at will" law releasing workers without having to have any type of valid reasoning. You have a job on Monday but you can be terminated at any moment and for any reason and be back in the unemployment line by Wednesday and not know why. Let the potential employee BEWARE.
Truck driver (Current Employee) – Gainesville, GA – July 23, 2017
Aim overall is a good company there seems to be a difficulty getting a good competent dispatcher in place which results in waiting for loads on occasion. This is a good company if you want to be home weekends
Good place to work need some improvements give it a try I did working out so far.
Truck Driver Class A (Current Employee) – Bolingbrook, IL – July 11, 2017
This is a good job with a little work on routes and management it could become a better job. I've been here for a good time haven't had any problems except with the routes and days off but they are getting better. You don't know when you working or what routes you have until late afternoon the day of. You don't have no one breathing down your back to get stops done you just go make delivery and pick up a backhaul if assigned. Truck's are nice brand new Volvo and some late model freightliners ( not new). Most of the trailers are in good order. I would recommend this job to anyone who wanna make good money with ok benefits and a relaxed work place. Home time depends on how you run you get a 34 hour reset. They have regional runs with some local stores you are not garented to be local it's a mix of both. The routes are usually overnights home the next day some can be turned same day. There's is some slip seating (boo) probably lost half of you with that. Hope this helps you enjoy your day.
A typical work day is meet the Expectations and being Pro Active with:
Plant Manager, Plant Comptroller, Shipping Managers, Sales, Director of Accounts, Director of Operations, Director of Safety, Shop Foreman, Drivers and Carriers.
Keep the plant flowing smoothly with safety as a priority and keeping up with the loads and reports on a daily basis of scheduling, CPP and CPM.
There is a lot of multi tasking and organizing as you deal with a lot of driver paperwork from their daily trip logs. Must be able to identify customer issues with in the bill of laden and proof of deliveries with daily trailer use and units. keeping in mind of the industry changing DOT laws and regulation.
Also assist the Directors in the Quarterly Safety Meeting with the drivers in promoting the Peoples Net, Safety and Company Policies.
Everyday you are learning new challenges with in the industry or the customer demands and how to best approach different challenges.
The workplace culture is very Driver Oriented but in the end the Customer will dictate everything. The hardest part of the job is leaving the job despite the many challenges.
The most enjoyable part of the job is working with the customer, drivers and management and meeting the challenges and the friendship built over the years with the brokers/carriers.
Very flexible with your hours as long as you work hard
Career advancement and security is not there unless your a driver
Driver (Current Employee) – Bolingbrook, IL – June 12, 2017
New regional Management does not know how to run an account. Constantly not supporting employees instead of helping directly with local management. The attitude is that the company does not care about you.
CLERK (Former Employee) – Napoleon, OH – October 7, 2016
Very busy work days, checking in truck drivers for almost the full 12 hour shift. Good pay starting out, if you are willing to do the work and like to stay busy, this is a good place to do it. The management isn't always the best, but they are usually fair and helpful with any issues or complaints you might have.
I've learned a lot in a short time period . Good place to start your career learning the ropes on being a truck driver. The money is there once you get your feet wet. Typical Mon thru Fri work schedule with weekend off.
Driver (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – June 16, 2016
As a line haul driver on a dedicated account I had the same schedule every day. That was the only good point. No increase in pay at all, what your paid when you start is all that you will ever make. The equipment is horrible. In 22 years of driving I was broke down more with this company in 3 years than in the preceding 19 years combined. Absolutely no communication in this company.
