Driven by team goals vs personal endeavors. Although, personal success is nonetheless heralded. Managers are held accountable and a lot of change has happened in our company within the 6 months. Glad I stuck around.
Outbound Dock Worker (Current Employee) - San Antonio, TX - January 16, 2020
The San Antonio terminal is ran very poorly. Workers get away with coming in late, no call no shows, damaging freight, breaking safety guidelines... with zero repercussions. Terminal and Operation mangers are lazy and half the time have no idea what is going on. They make things personal at work. The supervisors for the dock shifts are clueless. Dock workers run the shift.
If you're okay with zero direction, picking up others slack, doing the supervisors job for him while he doesn't show up or leaves work to go trick or treating. This job is definitely the job for you.
A scratch my back, break yours type job.
Poor management!!!! Dispatchers are on a high horse....Safety is an issue they do not follow safety regulations and when brought to their attention they ignore. Not well organized. Seniority is first. Company does not pay on time! Would not recommend to work for this company
The hardest part of my day is being expected to fix equipment without having the necessary parts. Explaining why equipment isn't being fixed in a timely manner without having necessary parts to fix tube equipment.
Pays well, five days a week, close to home, your not really hassled by dispatch or management. The down side of this job is it is hard physical labor as well as driving. Long hours, up to 14 per day. Long waiting on loads at times. The insurance is reasonably priced, but sucks. Equipment is old and in disrepair, but they are bringing in newer trucks lately.
We worked for them offered them trucks and labor we have been waiting for payment nothing yet they owe more than 85,000 in past due invoices horrible accounting department can never get a hold of whoever writes the checks and when we ask for status on payment they say "no status yet" like Im asking when are you sending our payment. Honestly I dont know how this company has not gotten sued yet
Customer Service Representative (CSR) (Former Employee) - Chesapeake, VA - November 26, 2019
My experience in a nutshell... The worse company I ever worked for.... Twice we all didn't get paid on pay day.... Management was the worse... And at the end the entire office got laid off after telling us how great we were as a new office....
Central Freight lines has to be the worst company I've for in my entire life. Bad customer accounts, lots hand freight. Employees come in hours late or skip days if not weeks and management gives them a slap on the hand as if nothing had ever happened. Most employees are convicts. The company stacks on hazmat. Prep for long hours.. Yes it's true they can't pay their bills.
They will not fire you. Everyone just leaves
Low pay, long hours, negative culture, damaged freight, old equipment, two faced people, poor accounts
Bad equipmemt lowest pay when it come to LTL and drivers get blamed for everthing. New managment is horrible. Trucks always have an issue and the mechanic is a little kid. Overtime starts after 50hr the company is rigged for you not to grow and make more money. So please be my guest and try it out.
