Terrible Management
Diesel Mechanic (Current Employee) –  Fort Wayne, INDecember 6, 2018
Management at the Fort Wayne Terminal is terrible. Always looking to screw you out of something, simply because it's a union shop. Worst environment I have worked in.
Pros
Insurance, no weekly cost to employee
Cons
Management, intermittent layoffs, job depends on if FWA assembly is building trucks.

Fleet Maintenance Manger (Current Employee) –  Charlton, MANovember 27, 2018
Can be challenging at times, but overall a good company to work for.
Management allows you to perform your duties, however strict accountabilities are in place.

A typical day's hours start at 6:15am and end at 4pm.
It's a flexible job that promotes a family environment.
The hardest part of the job is dealing with Union related issues.
The most enjoyable part of the job is working with great people.

Union rules

Be scared to lose your job at any minute.
Yard Employee (Former Employee) –  Liberty, MOOctober 26, 2018
If the company could focus more on getting their product out of the 2 yards they might keep their contract. Always look over your shoulder. They want to fire everybody employed from pullers, haulers and supervisors. They have no appreciation for the hard work done by the ones actually doing the work.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Pay is mediocre at best for the supervisors.

Diesel Mechanic Technician (Current Employee) –  Roanoke, INOctober 24, 2018
Before I worked here found a lot of mixed reviews, but all in all this is a great place to work! Most people who complain about this place haven’t worked anywhere else and don’t have a clue what the real world mechanic jobs consist of. Best benifits on the planet!
Pros
Pay, insurance
Cons
Waiting to get seniority

Great place to work
Driver (Current Employee) –  Flint, MISeptember 14, 2018
Jack Cooper is a great place to work. I have been working for Cooper for 10+ years. Don't fall into the mentality that some others preach do as little as possible because you don't get recognized for it, that is BS. Do a good job for your company, if they are not making any money they will close the doors. A non productive terminal will result in you not having a job, the customer will hire someone else to move their product. If you do your job and consistently do more than the daily minimum, work hard it will pay off. The harder you work the more money you will make and make your terminal more productive and result in a happy customer.

Be honest, work hard, and be the best at what you do. It's not brown nosing, it's good character.
Pros
Pay
Cons
old equipment

Demanding fast paced. Physically and mentally demanding
Truck Driver Class A CDL (Current Employee) –  Fort Wayne, INJuly 26, 2018
Too much time away from home. Requires up to 70hrs per week. Job is physically and mentally demanding and requires you to climb working off ground level. Older unreliable equipment can have a significant impact on your ability to earn wages if your equipment happens to need repairs on a constant basis
Pros
Great benefits package
Cons
Required to use older unreliable equipment. Job is physically demanding, requires climbing up and down on equipment in all weather conditions.

Great in shop management
HEAVY DUTY DIESEL MECHANIC (Current Employee) –  Flint miJune 8, 2018
JACK COOPER is a very good paying job as a mechanic. Has no room for advancement and that is very sad if there was management that had advaced from employees in my opinion it would be very successful but management trys to make it feel like we're on different teams, where in reality were all working for the same propose of having a successful career and employer. There management seems to miss the point and feel the need to disregard employee thoughts or suggestion that would help the end goal, where as other sucessful company's I've worked for promote with in and have a better understanding of what the other side struggle with.

Dispatch driver on daily tours. Checked in loads that were delivered. I learn to motivate driver ensure their safety while in route. To promote good relations with our customer. Worked with customers to resolve issues to their satisfaction. I learned payroll system. Paid employees all monies that were due. Hardest part was to reprimand employee. Best part was getting to know employees and meeting their families.
Pros
Learning new tasks.
