Contract Airfreight Driver, Pick (Former Employee) – Jfk area – May 17, 2018
Nobody stay working for the company, salary does not compete with the market in the area, low wages, and poor management... If you on schedule and the job slow down, you have to clock out, so you might not even make your 40 hours....
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Des Plaines, IL – May 7, 2018
The work, coworkers were great and the job was enjoyable. Worked there for 8 years but a new manager took over and anything changed. Many people were let go that had many years with the company. It became impossible to satisfy the new manager.
Pay and benefits
When your pay goes up after years of service you are replaced
Dock Worker (Former Employee) – Montgomery, AL – May 7, 2018
The forward air in Montgomery, AL has no hours at all. I literally worked 2 hours every three days. I went to my manager to ask for more but I was laid off 2 days after. They have started hiring again with the same amount of hours. Do not work here in Montgomery AL, complete waste of time.

Dock Worker (Part-time) (Former Employee) – Georgia – April 7, 2018
They boost your head up during the interview but when you actually start working for them it’s a huge let down the hours are terrible and they will blame you for their mistakes everyone in the office has no clue as to what they’re doing they sent me home told me not to come back and months later they send me a letter saying I abandoned the job I wouldn’t even recommend this job to my greatest enemy
As a company driver, Forwardair soluiton will use you up. you will work about 10-14 hours a day, your pay is based off of a set zone pay.or 18% of your truck. to get the 18% you are going to have about 800-1000 boxes you are going to have to deliver by hand. This is a touch freight job, but you still want even make 300 hundred dollars for the day of work. you work quick 10, meaning you go home and come back in 10 hours no home life. all deliveres are made on window times,if you are late to them to much they will be ready to fire you. all the class B trucks have high miles they always break down.when you have a heavy case day you will not get any help they dont believe in team work. they dont have good equipment to work with to move the freight. when Christmas come they want you to work 6 days straight for three months. the dispatcher sucks there what ever the owner/operator dont want they put it on your truck and make your day longer. your start times will be 2AM-3to4 is when you will get off. mangement will not have your back, i repeat mangement will not have your back. and its a lot more ( BS) you will go through as well. so you will have to work there to see for your self. but i wouldn't recommend this company to anyone. thats on the FORWARD AIR SOLUITON side.
Management is very lax and not a lot of care given to work place culture. Continual changes make it hard to meet performance expectations. No opportunity for advancement, even when senior in department and voiced interest in more responsibility.
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Kansas City MO – March 20, 2018
If you're young with a strong back and no sense of compensation for the unbelievable amount of work you're going to do than this is the job for you. More Temps going through there than a ghetto high school. Just another company trying to pay as least as possible for a STAGGERING amount of work!!!!
(Truck Driver) Owner Operator (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – March 13, 2018
typical day would start at 10 pm eat dinner complete truck inspection and start driving. I have learned to be cautious on the highways and look for unsafe drivers. Work place is very easy to learn people are friendly and courteous. Hardest part of the job is driving in snow. Most enjoyable is driving cross country.
