This company is for owner/ operators ( owning your own equipment.) You are your own boss here, you do not have a manager over you. We lease our equipment to Landstar.

Great Starter
Account Administrator (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 25, 2018
Great place to get experience in the industry because it is a beautiful industry. If you work hard you will learn a lot. Hardest part is drivers calling late at night but you get use to it.

Overall good Transportation/Logistics company, but a couple of areas need improvement.
eFuel Analyst (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLJuly 25, 2018
Landstar is an overall good company. However, management and the job culture need a lot of work. I worked 8-5, M-F. I learned Dispatching/Trailer Utilization, Payables, and Fuel and Miles.


Good pay, nice physical work environment, good benefits. Management and the job culture and the short-staffing, were the hardest part of the job. My jobs and my liking for Logistics/Transportation, however, were enjoyable.

I worked for Landstar for 12.5 years.
Pros
Free Thanksgiving lunch.
Cons
Management, and job culture.

O/O Company
Driver (Former Employee) –  Rexford, KSJuly 22, 2018
Cut throat business, no real way to make money. Brokers took all extras. Brokers would try to change loads, place lower than advertised RPM and no tarp fees. Had to fight for the loads between all other drivers.

Stressful
Executive Assistant to President - Logistics (Former Employee) –  Denton, TXJune 26, 2018
Landstar is like a franchise. It's a freight brokering company. I did not like my manager and he made the workplace very stressful and hard to work in for everyone. He should not have been a manager but he was also the owner of this franchise that I worked at.
Cons
bad management

Starting Job
Logistics Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXMarch 7, 2018
This was a good starting job. But no room for any development and you pretty much work for yourself. There is not much collaboration nor sense of making a significant impact. The overall management is great, but that loses luster when the income is not steady.

Landstar Fuel and Miles
eFuel Analyst (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLMarch 6, 2018
Fuel and Miles is very specific job within Landstar. It is easy to grasp the concept after training but can be stressful when overloaded. The department has less than 10 people but works well together. Great company to work for if you need entry level logistics work.

Best of luck!
