Great part-time job with no benefits
Dock Worker/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Sikeston, MOMay 14, 2018
Great place to work if you just want a part-time job. Nepotism is Very High in the field. I was the only dock worker that knew how to do anything in the building included office work and was over-looked when it came time to get interviewed for the office outbound supervisor. The one that got the position was someone that has never done that kind of work.
Pros
Great hourly pay
Cons
Nepotism

Dock Worker, W&R (Current Employee) –  Flint, MIFebruary 19, 2018
I have no complaints about Dayton Freight whatsoever. Dayton has a very competitive pay scale for part time and full time employees making it a nice place to work and grow at. The culture is also a very important part to Dayton and everyone treats each other as family making the work environment fast paced but relaxing at the same time.

Dock Hand (Current Employee) –  Byron Center, MIFebruary 18, 2018
This job involves working outside, and can be stressful, but the pay is good, and the people who work there are cool. The only downside is that it's part-time and the hours you work are sort of on a 3rd/1st shift split. Overall, it's a great place to work.

Part Time Dock Worker
DockWorker- part (Current Employee) –  Oak Creek, WIFebruary 14, 2018
Never can guarantee enough work hours for the week. If your look for extra cash, this is a great part time job, but if you need to work a certain amount of hours to pay the bills each week, there is no guarantee you will get a set amount every week.
