Driver (Former Employee) – Missouri – November 22, 2018
These people are hung up on the must have one year over the road experience. Regional experience p e r recruiter doesn't count. Even if you stay out a month and your loads are 1400 miles. They appear to be okay with certain felons though. Go figure guess I should have been a felon.
Agent/Dispatcher (Former Employee) – Remote – November 13, 2018
Posting loads and working with Landstar drivers,searching for the loads and making connection with customers. Very stressful job but I enjoy working in transportation . Landstar is a great company but have to have better agency managers and must sign contract .
can work from home
poor agency management, giving Landstar bad picture.
I was an independent agent and operations manager for Landstar/Inway
Sales Agent/Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Reading, PA – November 6, 2018
Begin with answering calls from customers and drivers. Posted shipments and matched available equipment for customer needs. Communicated instructions for pick up and delivery of commodities. Completed any paperwork necessary to finalize shipments. I learned that customer service & safety was priority. I understood "just in time" delivery. The hardest part of the job was finding good administrative back up staff. I enjoyed keeping my word to both customer and driver, because I was providing a service and earning trust.
Truck Driver Class A (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – October 23, 2018
Productive good place to work I drove for a owner opperater so no bennefits and old truck and equipment that was the bad part and reason for leaving all things connsidered a good companny to drive for except the trucks were in bad shape
This company American Frieght services by Landstar is nothing short of a scam. First off, We wasted the first week and another agent gave us the MC number we needed to even start approaching shippers. Every shipper I called said that they would no longer deal with landstar. They say that Landstar is double brokering. By the second week, only 4 people remained. The broker changed the game and said that no we only have to worry about getting loads, well word quickly spreads and with the landstar name you won't even be able to get the first load. After that, you still won't be able to get a driver for your load as was my case. The shippers are low balling LANDSTAR agents and the drivers are HIGH PITCHING, so that you won't make anything. The drivers always have an excuse as to why they cannot take your load and the BCO's are the worst. Its a company on its last legs. The industry has changed for the worst and Landstar has been BLACK BALLED, but now instead of them scamming the shippers, they are now scamming their own AGENTS! run run run away and don't waste anymore than a day in their class. If you have a job, don't leave it for this!!! That's what they encourage you to do. Because they KNOW its a scam and your screwing yourself over. Don't do it. You'll be very sorry you did! Oh and he sent us an email at the end threatening us that if we don't show up for training tommorow morning at 8, that we will NEVER BE ABLE TO WORK IN THE INDUSTRY AGAIN... I'm gonna forward this email to EVERYONE so that they can see what kind of people Landstar has. THEY MAKE YOU MARKmore... UP THE LOAD BY 30% AND WONDER WHY THEY CAN'T GET THAT OUT OF THE SHIPPERS!!! STUPID!less
never did a background check, never asked for banking info because they knew it was nothing to be made anyway!
scam, waste of time, won't give you the whole story, untruthful, lack of ethics, threatening
Fast pace, stressful, never the same thing every day
Customer Service Rep/Dispatcher Assistant (Former Employee) – Denton, TX – August 22, 2018
The company as a whole is great. Just make sure you work for one of the good and drama free cites. Since its a brokerage firm, every office is individualy owned and not a true part of the Landstar corporation.
Securement Advisor/LCV Instructor (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – August 14, 2018
Good place to work if you are in Jacksonville, no room for advancement if in Ft Worth, Good Benefits and most of the people are easy to work with. Exception is current supervisor in Ft Worth. Very stressful as Ft Worth does not have enough employees to cover the jobs.
Unknown (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – August 6, 2018
Micromanaging, too much politics, no recognition for hard work, you have to be buddy with Vice Presidents or Directors to advance. They do not like nor support diversity. Unhealthy work environment and company.
