Very stressful environment. Difficult to work in this environment.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Schenectady, NY – January 13, 2018
This family owned business was run by a father and son who did not get along with each other and whose management style including a lot of screaming at each other and the employees. It was very stressful to go into this office every day.
Boss was not on site every day
Whenever the father and son were in the office at the same time.
Berger Transfer An Agent (Current Employee) – Cleveland, OH – November 7, 2017
I would verbally discuss with recruiter. While Allied Van lines is a good company to be a part of, the local agencies are not customer centric. I am looking for an organization to develop and manage new clients business and be able to support to new business operationally.
CO-OWNER FRISBY TRUCKING (Former Employee) – United States – October 2, 2017
Lots of hard labor which gave a sense of personal satisfaction when the job was successfully completed. Used all my skill as an Executive Assistant to be an effective contractor for both corporate HQ and the customers.
Seeing this country and a sense of accomplishment
Long days away from home and physical exertion was a constant concern
I am actually an Allied Van Lines employee but I work for Piepho Moving and Storage which is an agent AVL. The local offices at Piepho are fantastic and the personnel are like family having known them since I first came to MN 15 years ago. Great place to work!
I loved working at Allied. It was an enjoyable experience riding in the truck each day, having many laughs with my driver and learning about the western parts of North Carolina. I was able to improve my ability to speak with customers and learn from them all while providing a valuable service. It is very difficult to transport goods and products to mountain areas and all of our customers were more than appreciative that we were able to do so.
Driver and Mover (Current Employee) – NY – January 30, 2017
Was a great experience driving for them but moving forward and growing was not something that was going to happen. The hardest part of the job is seeing people upset daily when moving them out of their childhood homes into a new location. The downside is your scheduling you do not have a set schedule you must call in a recording at night. I enjoyed the traveling you never know where you are going until you go in and get the paperwork in the morning. I've been all over NJ NY CT MASS DC PA ect
Great job to get if u would like to see the country and travel

Warehouse Staff (Former Employee) – Oak Creek, WI – March 16, 2016
A typical day at work would be loading or unloading shipments to and from the warehouse.We also gathered materials, pad wrapped furniture, and recorded inventory.My co-workers were very good team members. The hardest part of the job was moving larger shipments. The best part about the job was meeting and networking with different people, and seeing all parts of the city.
