Good place to work if you have decent local management.
Lead Dispatch Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Richmond, CADecember 12, 2018
Ruan corporate is well intentioned and they attempt to take care of their employees well. It's old school in its top down chain of command culture. While this is helpful, it does give managers so much leeway that they can be drastically different from location to location.

Good workplace
Tanker Truck Drver Cdl A (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZDecember 2, 2018
Be on time, so you don’t rush and ready to work. Fuel your tractor at the end of shift to be ready for next day. Be safe and perform duties in timely manner.
Pros
Lunch in truck, private and comfortable.
Cons
Lunch on the go.

Commercial Truck Driver (Current Employee) –  Green Bay, WINovember 21, 2018
Pay scale could be better for 3rd shift drivers. Equipment could be better maintained. I do not carry their insurance but they do have a very nice health plan

I've tried a career advancement twice and was turned down both times. They prefer to hire outside rather than promote within. Management is more ordering than leading.
Pros
Pay, bonuses
Cons
No work/life/balance, poor management, no career advancement

great company
Dispatch Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZNovember 12, 2018
A great company is as good as its leaders. Pays great but has a problem with communication.

Drivers in the union run the terminal and management get alot of push back from both union and non-union side.

Building is shared with 4 or more terminals so you see alot of negativity from other terminals.

Place can improve once Management acknowledges the problem
Pros

Management is like every other big company, not very good. They care more about their bottom line than their employees. In my experience, most of their employees were great to work with.

Driver don't stay long here
Driver (Former Employee) –  Ind.October 3, 2018
Drives move on cause of missing pay. Your missing pay will be payed bits and pieces at a time. Then it well Start over again. This company wants submisive people.
Slavery. Don't get their way, you will be punished by missing pay. And you didn't do anything wrong but ask why you have pay missing. But thats what you get when workers have no rights.
Pros
Retaliation from management
Cons
Retaliation from management
