great place for fellow employees - too much micro management
National Account Director (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAApril 4, 2018
they have a good culture but the daily micro management gives you the impression that they do not trust anyone- they seem to be looking how far they can stress someone to make them break at times

Very frustrating place to work
Driver (Current Employee) –  Fresno, CAMarch 31, 2018
No work/life balance. The company doesn’t plan anything, just reacts. The equipment is junk and pooly maintained! Management is never around, and doesn’t return phone calls or voice/text messages. You will not feel secure with with your job, You are just a number and very replaceable. Very few opportunities for growth and advancement within the company. Too many drivers just park broken equipment without writing it up, and just leave it for the next driver.
Overall, not a very good place to work. If you have other options, don’t work here!
Pros
Pay and benefits. Weekends off
Cons
Poor communication. Junk equipment. No appreciation for drivers. Work/life balance

Great LTL Company
City Driver (Current Employee) –  Waunakee, WIMarch 31, 2018
Like any LTL company, It is a highly competitive, fast paced company.
Most people that complain about the job really don't understand this.
I entered into this job knowing this and love working here. The money is great, the equipment is great and the opportunity is here to make a great living.
Is the job stressful and hard? Yes it is. But it is a great job.
Pros
Money. Good equipment. Uniforms.
Cons
None

Line driver (Current Employee) –  Fresno, CAMarch 14, 2018
No assign tractors Get you out of the yard late expected to do the impossible every day in a short amount of time The company's technology sucks outdated. Management will write you up for any little thing If your on their bad side favoritism runs rampant etc..etc Would not recommend this company. Management will serve you Little Caesars Pizza for driver appreciation

Great place to work as a driver, few opportunities for dock workers
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  New Haven, INFebruary 22, 2018
Never enough hours for dock workers to make the job worthwhile. The pay is great, but the lack of hours undermines this. Okay place to work if you have a second job.

Forklift Operator (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZFebruary 13, 2018
Heavy lifting, rewrap unload load trailers
good pay for hard work
bad management
their is some racism and special preference towards other workers
the favorites can get away from almost anything no matter how hard worker you could be,
the turn around on this company is high people come and go as soon as they see those and lots more issues.
Pros
good pay, good benefits
Cons
bad management, supervisor does not have good communication skills to keep the workers motivated.

Very stressful.
Local Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OHFebruary 5, 2018
Saia was very stressful job dispatch gave you pickups then when you was on your way to that pick up take it off of you and send you somewhere else. They couldn't get you out of yard till 1030 or 1110 almost every mourning. Give you delivers in housings plates where you shouldn't have a 48ft Simi to start with.
Pros
Pay. Equipment
Cons
