Great Pay /Terrible Work Life Balance

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
OTR Drivers start their “Night” pre tripping and setting up Doubles for their overnight destination/ typical shift M-F night is 11=14 hours. You must be able to sleep during the night or fatigue of driving throughout the night against your biological clock could become a major issue/ If you lime being paid handsomely for your work as a Driver SAIA is a great place/although Work life balance is non existent whenever you’re home you will spend a majority of your time resting or sleep

Pros

Great Pay

Cons

You sleep through Holidays and vacations, it’s extremely hard to enjoy life away from work, most of the time if you are not at work you are too tired to enjoy life

Horrible work environment

Would not recommend to any one the management is rude and stuck up. They have no respect towards any of the new workers and treat the workers that have been there for years not much better.

Very unorganized, you wil get on hired one shift and start another shift.

This could be great company. The communication between management and the dock worker lacks 100%. Don’t find nothing to last minute. The supervisor do not come to work. No ops managers. Work conditions is not up to par. You have to do everything yourself when comes to finding out who you supposed to answer to

Not a bad company, room to make money , good benefits

Long hours…good pay, company is organized when it comes to getting freight off…benefits aren’t expensive…room to make good money as long as you work the hours, safety meetings and mechanics usually get problems fixed immediately depending on the issue

Somewhat decent equipment, no mechanics on site

You stay busy when running but you also do a lot of unnecessary unpaid waiting. Northeast dispatcher changes run while you are in mid run without notification and constantly changing stops.. i want to say night dispatcher is biased towards certain individuals... alot of favoritism at the terminals with terminal manager and certain employees, benefits are ok.. high deductible and co-pays

Pros

Very decent pay. Decent equipment when kept up...

Cons

Biased Northeast central dispatcher. constant changing runs while in the middle of it, and hard to get a set run

They management rush you all the time.

They will curse at you move you around, the trucks from other terminals are never workable. It takes a long time for them to fix equipment. Always running out of propane and Always trying to say you are stealing companies time. They try to bullie you out of your last break.

Pros

High pay but you won't last long do to the stress. In the last 7 months 30 people walked off

Cons

You can never finish one assignment at a time.

You cannot grow with this company.

The company pays well. The management is horrible. They are not supportive. There is no communication. This is by far the worst. You cannot advise corporate managers that the supervisors are doing wrong. They will side with the men within the company. Treated poorly. Wasn’t even invited to the bbq for employee appreciation week. Had a leaf blower blown in my face by a regional manager. After lung surgery. This company could care less if your well being.

Pros

The pay is good.

Cons

Good benefits.

The Good: The people I work with directly.The Bad: My position was closed

Overall, all work days were fun and challenging. I learned more about the LTL industry. The training I had was one of the best I have ever had. Covered more than expected. The workplace was safe and fun. I enjoyed the camaraderie in the work place.

Pros

Good healthecare & benefit package.

Cons

None for me.

it's a good job but you don't get much in terms of hours

I has fun and would work here again if it was necessary, it's hard to go full time but a good company to work for, it's good for getting your foot in the door regarding forklift experience

Pros

paid good for short hours

Cons

no full time readily available

Don't be blinded by the money

Have no delusions the pay is excellent, the benefits is great, the catch of the matter is, that you basically have to sell your soul to enjoy any of it. You think that you're going to be working an 8 hour day, in reality, you will be working 12 hour days 6 days a week in busy season, they will grind you to the nub. Then they will wait until slow season(winter), to find a way to weed out the non butt kissing/non "top" performers. The supervisors don't talk to people well at all, they'd rather scream at you, then talk to you like a human, they have zero respect, you're just a number. The place is perfect for you if you only care about money, but if you want to be treated like a human being with an ounce of respect, don't apply here.

Pros

The pay, the benefits

Cons

Terminal is filthy, you will come home covered in black soot nightly, management only cares about themselves

Excellent pay, management is horrible

I really liked working here, but the longer I have been here the worse management has started treating me. One supervisor here is the worst of the worst and has had many formal complaints put in on him, and they do not care at all. Management is like a high school click, they all cover each others you know what, and god forbid you are disliked by one of them, especially the aforementioned, because they/he will push you into absolutely hating your job and look for a way to get rid of you, they're really heartless in this area. You very rarely ever work under a 10 hour shift, even in the colder months when it supposedly "slows down". 50+ work hours when it's really busy, 5 days a week. They do not run any heat or a/c in the warehouse at all, except in management offices, so prepare for extreme temperatures. They draw people in with the high pay, but do not truly care about there employees at all unless you kiss you know what or are a " top performer".

Pros

Pay

Cons

Management is savage make you hate coming to work

Just another name on the door

Just another name on the door. They are no different than any other trucking company. They will make your promises and have you go above and beyond your duties. Then when the time comes for advancement they will keep dangling the carrot in front of you. You won’t realize you will never eat the carrot until it’s too late. If being disappointed is high on your priority list then so be it work for Saia LTL.

Pros

The pay is decent

Cons

No room for advancement

Dockworker at Saia

Overall good company pay is really good for the job you do. Easy as long you don’t get complacent. Decent benefits and 401k not the best but I’ve seen worse. The pay makes up for it all. If you want OT you definitely will get it here. Just show up to work and you’ll make good money.

Pros

Pay job advancement to become driver or supervisor within

Cons

10hr shifts mandatory and some weekends when busy

not a good place to work

if you wish to be at work and not with yor family it is a great place to call home. more overtime than you could possibly want or be forced to work which is why I left
Was this review helpful?

Don't expect a pleasant work experience.

• Antiquated equipment and facilities. • Predatory management practices• Management has no respect for subordinates. • 0 concern for employees wellbeing or needs. • Warehouse workers hours cut arbitrarily, or for disciplinary reasons.
