Loader and Unloader (Former Employee) –  Norwalk, OHDecember 10, 2018
Supervisors are cool and mostly very helpful but the terminal managers are completely indifferent to any grievance you have as an employee. Don't show you are a good worker because they will expect you to pick up everyone's slack
Pros
No supervision
Cons
No overtime

OTR Driver, Operation of semi (Current Employee) –  TexasDecember 9, 2018
This company gives lots of raises. It could use some stability in the employment department. It offers a good team building environment.
Does not pay overtime. Gives you holidays off and has good benefits.

Dock Worker Lead I (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXDecember 6, 2018
In the Beginning RL Carriers Dallas was fun exciting place.to learn & grow maybe have chance for advancement. After a few years I've seen surplus of managers come & go tenure employees go on to find better employment. Drivers come and go alot of turnover in 10 years. Slowly decide maybe time to make a change after 10 yrs who wants to look another job. I definitely didn't not. Without opportunity to advance & recent manger, employee & driver turnover figured time for a change to grow professionally
Pros
Travel Resorts are free
Cons
Not always available

Class A CDL Driver (Former Employee) –  Manchester, NHDecember 4, 2018
At this company it was very hard to stay with in your 14 hour rule and would have to to take a chance and run over your log book, was a nightmare to get out of the yard on time because of lack of order on how things were done,

Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Ellenwood, GANovember 27, 2018
Upper Management good and that's all I can say about them because it did not roll down to the rest of the managers in the Southeast. Focus only on numbers and not people in this company
Pros
Weekly pay

Bad managers

Stay away . You can do better almost anywhere.
Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Seekonk, MANovember 24, 2018
Beware of the road mechanics.they work 80 plus hours a week.and think there good. They actually need the hours so they will say or do almost anything to protect it. Fleet management is rediculous.
Pros
None
Cons
About all of it.

Pros
Laid back
Cons
Lack of some structure

As Freight Carriers go, R+L Carriers has a high number of long tenured employees in all positions. The owners really are very loyal to the employees that are loyal to them.

Logistics Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Perrysburg, OHNovember 12, 2018
The position needs to be able to supervise yourself and work in a fast paced environment. You are responsible for making split second decisions. Customer service is a must.

Outbound Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, NYNovember 6, 2018
Your day can very easily turn into 12 to 13 hours depending on demands. Extremely tough managers that give you very little training and expect you to know it all afterwards. Home/work life is not good. Recommended for a single person that doesn't mind working long, long hours.

Could Be Better
Forklift Operator/Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Fontana, CAOctober 31, 2018
This company has its ups and its downs. The goods: 75 percent of the working environment is actually welcoming. The other 25 percent are lazy employees whom brown nose and lack work ethic. Management is nonexistent and lacks the proper working forklifts, tools and makes stingy decisions. Plus, instead of handling loads on Saturday, the Sunday night shift drags without proper working forklifts.
Pros
Some working individuals are welcoming and will help when asked for help
Cons
Management is terrible, Specific group of employees that are lazy and drag the shift longer

Great corporate structure trickles down to each individual Terminal
Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Wallingford, CTOctober 22, 2018
You feel a strong Corporate presence in the structure and environment. Everyone there has a job to do and the environment is very professional. Safety and Quality are both expected to be at 100%. Anything less than that is considered a failure. Daily safety meetings and group discussions are high priority for management. Overall it is a great place to work if you like 2nd or 3rd shift. All of the action is at night, Routing, stripping and loading trailers based on the router's manifest etc. If you want to work days here you are working in the corporate offices, a terminal manager, day dispatch, customer service, truck driver or sales. Inbound and Outbound operations is 2nd or 3rd shift.
Pros
Professional, safe environment
Cons
Long hours working 2nd or 3rd shifts
