Management is horrible,shop is very cutthroat...
Diesel Technician (Current Employee) –  Roaring Spring, PAApril 25, 2018
I've worked in the Roaring Spring shop for over a decade. And I have seen a lot of good people come and go,this is due to management not doing there job. There is no appreciation for all the effort and hard work you do and laziness seems to get rewarded. But it all starts at the top,if you don't have to do your job why would others think they should....
Pros
Tool program and a few good honest hard working people...
Cons
Cutthroat no leadership corrupt management...

It's a trucking company
OTR Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Roaring Spring, PAMarch 2, 2018
Driving a truck is a life that many people can't do because of the demand it places on your life as well as your family's life. Smith try's its best to blend the two together but it does not always work out. I felt that Smith was good to me as a driver and if they wanted me back I would come back.
Pros
They do there best for the driver
Cons
Safety is not always fair or right.

Stressful Workplace
Order Entry Clerk (Former Employee) –  Roaring Spring, PAFebruary 21, 2018
Typical day is pretty slow place. Coworkers aren't friendly. Not much room for advancement. Management was helpful. The job wasn't hard, the workplace culture just wasn't enjoyable and stressful.

Stressful environment
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Roaring Spring, PAFebruary 16, 2018
Poor management, stressful environment. There is no job/home balance. They do not care about office staff at all. Push employees to do unethical work or risk termination.

Full time work ,but low pay.
Material Handler (Current Employee) –  Roaring Spring, PAFebruary 15, 2018
The only positive thing about this is that it's a full time job with 40
+ hours a week.The downside is the pay is low.
It's all straight time,even weekends.Most of us haven't seen a pay increase in the last eight years,but our work load increases.Management is a joke anymore. They just don't care.Overall this is just another one of Blair county's poverty employers.I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone unless they were very desperate for work.

A nice workplace and nice trucks to drive
Truck Driver (OTR) (Former Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAFebruary 5, 2018
Smith transport was a decent place to work but the management was poor,they give you long miles then turn around and take them away. And give you 2 or 3 hundred mile runs,there trucks are very nice,they do inspection's on them everyday.

Not a family oriented business
Shift supervisor (Current Employee) –  Springs, PAJanuary 8, 2018
The warehousing division of Smith transporting is a fast paced work environment. The company tends to hire people with mental health issues!, criminal backgrounds, former drug/alcohol issues or learning disabilities intentionally. For the sole reason of taking advantage of there situation. The company can treat them poorly. Pay them poorly. Make them work for years and years without an increase in wages. All the while convincing them they have the rite to treat them that way as no one else would want to hire them

Nice looking equipment

lack of advancement opportunity with low pay.
Parts and Warranty (Current Employee) –  Roaring Spring, PASeptember 21, 2017
slow paced working conditions, low pay with a lack of premium management material in all departments. there is relatively no opportunity for advancement throughout company. business is family owned and operated and all major positions are filled by family members creating problems with all the issues I mentioned. there is a huge lack of emphasis on employees working in the shop and office next door, the truck drivers are constantly being awarded and constantly reminded how important they are which is true but all other employees are NEVER mentions and overlooked.
Pros
job security
Cons
low pay

Wonderful Company
Executive Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Roaring Spring, PAMay 26, 2017
Working at Smith Transport was the greatest. They were all like family. You would have drivers come in off the road after a week and they would still have a huge smile on face. This company goes beyond GREAT. Leaving Smith due to the transportation 2 hours one way was the hardest thing I had to do. It was like leaving my second family. I still keep in contact with them.
Pros
Always treated as you are family
Cons
nothing
