Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Decatur, GA – July 5, 2018
I enjoy the people and the work is not bad after you get caught up . However the dock side of it is another story . You ask for a dock check for a particular shipment and it is passed off several times from the upper management to anyone on the dock and it never gets returned showing where it is. Freight goes all over the place and NEVER gets manifested so its extremely hard to do your job when you have no idea where the frt is . The company does not make any Florida points but continues to take the frt. Cant manifest those shipments so you have no clue where they are either .
Management will work with you on any day you need to take off usually
30 minute lunches, healthcare is not good at all . high co pays.
Roadrunner Transportation is all about the company image as for the drivers as ICs there are too many chiefs and not enough braves. When you are an IC it only applies when convenient for the company you be one.You never see a Payday because you are always in the hole.Drivers are left with nothing to support thier familes and no one in the company cares as long as they get thie monies. They claim no forced dispatch but you only get few choices on loads or where they go. They also have to much downtime.ICs pulling linehaul sit at least 10-14hrs waiting on loads with no pay.The leases are all double talk and go against the drivers.
Omitting my family needing me home and lack of better pay rates, I would have definitely stayed!! CEO is very friendly and approachable, understanding and has best interest in his business partners and employees !
Job security, no boss
Inadequate pay, inadequate fuel discounts, high weekly fixed cost

I enjoy my job at Roadrunner. I really do. I like what I do. I feel I am underpaid based on what I have been paid in the past to work at another trucking company I am looking for another transportation job. I am afraid Roadunner is going out of business based on the reduced amount of freight on our dock
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – May 22, 2018
workplace was ok but the management was not good. People were expected to work crazy hours and were not given enough pay. They were expected to work crazy shifts with short notice and it was not optional. If you were unable to work or do what management wanted retaliation happened.
lots of work
hostile environment, no room to advance of move up

Roadrunner is constantly changing the way it operates it’s changing things every month and not always for the better leaving drivers confused at times and sudden with little to no warning and has been losing good runs
Forklift Operator (Current Employee) – Livermore, CA – April 26, 2018
It is a simple job with easy tasks. It is an overall great experience and very understanding, and team oriented. I really like that it is a Monday through Friday job. I would only ask for better set schedule. I started with a 5am - 1:30pm shift. Then it changed to 4am start time, then it went to 3am and now it is a 2am start time. Hours change very often. Management has changed, and since then there has been a lot of changes that unfortunately caused the environment to be different. overall I am thankful to have learned how to become an expert in driving a forklift.

This company will cheat you out of everything humanly possible . Such as asking you to do things that shouldn’t be done. Letting people Harass you and making you to blame for there poor planning skills

Poor management and dispatchers are lost.. if you want a job,were the office staff doesn't know how to communicate properly..then this is the place for you..seriously guys I don't give reviews normally, but this place has got to be the worst driving job I have ever had.. it all starts with the two dumb a $$ they call managers.omg no training and two faced. Low pay for the loads avg 130 to 200 a day. Weekly 800 bring home..
Decent equipment 72 avg speed
Poor managment, no communication, dispatch over worked favoritism
Driver (Current Employee) – Ignacio, CO – February 17, 2018
had a route which you did everyday. pretty relaxed day. management not too good. communication was a problem. didn't check current employees out too well. I am a perfectionist and like to get my vehicle clean and updated. don't think management cared or not.
Pricing Administrator (Former Employee) – Cudahy, WI – February 14, 2018
do not recommend, very confused management, have to have a thick skin, and very cut-throat, still using paper files, favoritism, confusion, and it was a horrible working environment, to many people in once space
Controller, Temperature Controlled Division (Current Employee) – Omaha, NE – January 14, 2018
Roadrunner Transportation Systems provides very poor work-life balance. Corporate management consists of individuals with no transportation industry experience. Their expectations are unrealistic and they refuse to listen to those in the field that actually know.
good people locally
Benefits aren't the best. Unrealistic Expectations. Poor work-life balance.
