Driver/Operator (Former Employee) – Albany, GA – January 8, 2019
They were a good company to work for as fast as pay . However I did enjoy it at first wen they gave me hour's .they just to me swapt everyone's route's out to much . And at they time I think it has changed now the dispatch and management could not work together. But overall the pay was good and the hours were decent. They had there slow times like every one else.

My direct supervisor was awesome. I enjoyed my coworkers. But my terminal manager was a disgrace. He told me that I didn’t need to come back from maternity leave with juiced still coming out of me. He told me he would have never hired me if he knew who I dated when I applied. He constantly wanted to talk negative about the father of my child. He was very rude. And deceiving.

Really expected more out of this company. Other than being established. I don't really see how they're in business. Management doesn't have a clue. All they care about is their numbers. ( which are based on false information). Keep their numbers up and you'll do good. I haven't met but a few employees that LIKE their job. Everyone else is here for benefits and a check that's it. No joke. Very disorganized.
Dock Worker (Current Employee) – Greensboro, NC – December 31, 2018
The Greensboro Terminal is very unprofessional, team members do not work with you, plus when need help or ask questions they give negative feed back and use profanity language, the training system is poorly, equipments not update, almost all the time something is broke, never get fix! Management walks around with negative attitude, I would prefer anyone to think twice before making that move. It would be a better place if they would get rid of those supervisors that just want a pay check, but don't eant to do anything else but to use bad language...... Its not ESTES, its those kind of people.
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – December 26, 2018
As a company Estes is great. Middle management (ATM /TM) is a disappointment. The owners would be very disappointed to know how their staff is being treated. They are never willing to help or assist customers. They act like you are bothering them when you ask for help. It makes your job hard and make the environment stressful.
Forklift Operator / Dock (Former Employee) – Ellenwood, GA – December 13, 2018
Estes was ok, but I had a problem with how they laid me off. I was at work every day that was scheduled to be there and worked hard. I didn't have the schedule I asked for and had to work nights instead of the day shift.
Estes is a great company to work for, I just did not get along with the terminal manager. As did most people that worked their. There has been several drivers that have come and gone for the same reason since I left.

Load and unload trailers learned how proper secure freight The terminal manager is always business first relaxed attitude between coworkers the hardest part of the job is dealing with weather Bonus checks for lack of damages
Operations Manager (Current Employee) – York, PA – November 30, 2018
Estes family is a great company but they are still working through a growing industry. So you will hear that people work long hours and extra days however it is only superficial. I see this company improving in the years to come, getting there might require some hardships on the way.
Job has good pay but the work environment leaves a lot to be desired
DOCK WORKER (Former Employee) – Pulaski, VA – November 30, 2018
The only good thing to say about the dock worker position is it has very good pay for an entry level position. Past that, the experience is not a good one. The work environment is hostile basically all the time and most all of the management is very unkind and it's usually unmerited. With the exception of a small few, the employees and management alike are hostile and demeaning every shift.
hostile work environment, unfriendly coworkers and management
