OPERATIONS CLERK (Current Employee) – Kent, WA – February 14, 2019
Saia offers great jobs that are set at good wages, however work environment can sometimes be difficult. The hardest part of the job would be working with a variety of personalities from customers to fellow employees, however the most enjoyable part would be wages as well as benefits.
Operations Clerk II (Current Employee) – Henderson, CO – February 11, 2019
I always feel like I have a target on my back and people in other departments say that people before me who had this position felt the same way. The office manager is one of the worst that I have ever worked for.
dockworker, loading and unloading trailers (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – January 26, 2019
Money is good but the management allows harassment to happen repeatedly. Imagine being on vacation and charged with calling off from work. Imagine going to the next in charge and nothing happens. There's limited chances to advance and there is very little reward for dedicated employees. Management is known for bullying and I've seen it happen too many times to count. If you just need extra cash it's good but that's about it. There's been fights on the dock after management was told before it escalated to physical. Another fight a guy tried to hit a co-worker with a broken board from a pallet.
Dock Worker/ Hostler (Former Employee) – San Leandro, CA – January 21, 2019
I liked working at saia LTL.. But communication from dock worker to supervisor is very poor.. Training was pretty much getting thrown to the wolves. And you learn by errors after getting warnings or write ups. The point system is a little crazy.. They say call of your gonna be late so that you dont get a point. But you get one anyway. Trying to get them to overturn the point is a hassle in itself. The pay is good. Just dealing with management is the real issue. Kind of feel like they Dont really care. You get stuck with a write up to cover themselves, After they ask you to look out for them to get the job done.
Time clock, lunches, going the extra mile can get you written up
Linehaul Driver (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – January 21, 2019
From the local level all the way to Vice Presidents in Atlanta, the management of this company is terrible. It's a good old boy system where you can't get fired and they stock up for each other, not the employee.
RPG Programmer (Former Employee) – Johns Creek, GA – January 12, 2019
Saia was, several years ago, a good place to work. Now with a new CIO it has become an intolerable place to work. If you enjoy stress, being treated like a child, and low income then this job is for you.
A typical day was very fast paced and I learned to pace myself to last through a shift and the management was fair and easy to work for the hardest part came at the end of a shift and the most enjoyable part of the job was the people I worked with.

Operations Specialist (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – November 29, 2018
I worked for Saia for over 9 years and was the best job I ever had, I did not intend to leave but we had a management change at the same time I was returning from maternity leave and I returned to work before my leave was up, I ended up needing extended leave and the new TM let me go as a direct result
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 26, 2018
