Fun place

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Great pay. Great people. Linehaul driver. Consistent route. Dispatch was no problem at all. Had to leave for medical reason. Night hauls were hard to adjust to. Extra runs on weekends were there if you wanted them for the extra money. Could help on dock if they needed it. All and all a very good place to work. Terminal manager was great. On board cameras took getting used to. Trucks could be better hut libehaul usually

Quit after one day the place was too chaotic.

The job took long to get back me. when they did get to back about my start date it was at a different location than the one I sign up for and a different time. The place too crowded and to chaotic to their. The manager that hired me quit before I started. No training and prison bars that prevent you from leaving the facility. Do yourself a favor and avoid at all cost.


good pay good people


no training, bad technology

Good benefits not organized at all

Treat people like robots don’t care about employees… former employees have died and they didn’t care …. In order for you not get disciplined absent point you have to die it can be a very extreme emergency like car accident or death in family doesn’t matter to them


A guaranteed paycheck


Don’t care about employees … inhumane

Demanding work

Management treats new information like secrets. Place seems to be held together by the seams. I would recommend this place for easy/great pay and benefits, but sucks not knowing when you will get off work.

Decent pay, great benefits, didn’t like the hours

It was a good place to work. Managers were cool and tried to work with you if you need some time off. Pay was pretty decent. Benefits were great and really cheap. Only reason I left was because I needed an earlier start time so I could finish earlier. Would recommend working here to anyone.

Great pay decent benefits demanding work

Will make lots of money but have to drive a day cab and still stay in hotels a lot unless you are lucky with when you get hired because routes are given out 1000% on seniority to the day no exceptions. Trucks are governed at 68 on cruise and 65 on pedal a lot of routes will have you running all night long 500 plus miles cameras in and out facing are annoying but being disciplined on setting off the cam highly has to do with your manager

Health benefits awesome! Great pay rate! Lost business recently!

SAIA was a pretty good place to work. Pay rate was .775 cents per mile Fall 2022. But they had recently raised rates on customers and lost alot of business. They've had to reduce hours and milage considerably on most drivers with no rebound in business in site and no solution to drivers to help make up for it. Benefits were excellent and cost was pretty low compared to ANY other carrier around! I wouldn't recommend going there until they get there stuff under control or you'll be sitting at home a couple days per week like others!Line haul drivers ALL worked night shift. When you first started, you used to be sent out all week and home on weekends, but with recent reductions, you're out and back basically daily... But wont get many miles!!

Okay work for okay pay

It's okay to work here. Like most jobs the top dogs get the most part while the little guys get peed on. Wish they would pay a little more when it comes to raises.

Not a bad place to work

The pay is good and hours are good especially during spring and summer. Only thing overtime is paid after 45 hours but being outside isn’t the best but it’s manageable. Advancement opportunities are slow but can happen when doing the job correct

Fast paced

Fast paced and decent pay long hours cold during the winter night shift sucks some of the coworkers are nice and some aren't not a very friendly atmosphere

This is a repetitive, production-based data entry position that requires you to process a certain number of bills per hour while maintaining a high level of accuracy. I enjoyed that it was a position that did not require me to be on the phone at all. Great job for introverts!

Great place to work

This company was probably the best job I have had in years. The management in Jacksonville was great. The system is real easy and no one micro manages you as far as doing the job. They just monitor those cameras to much. At times I didn’t know if I was a driver or a movie star. Overall great home time and great pay.


Not micro managed


They monitor in cab cameras to much
