It's a good job. Only 2nd and 3rd shifts on the dock.
Dock Associate/Stacker/Hostler (Current Employee) –  Austell, GAMarch 19, 2018
It's okay but could be better. The turnover for management is high at this terminal because of the size. I've had several leaders and operational managers in my time with the company.

Good company, no big complaints.
Truck Driver Class A (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMarch 10, 2018
SEFL is a pretty good company. However, as a driver, it's not very likely that you'll ever advance. The pay was great, the work wasn't that hard and the benefits were good.
Pros
Great pay.
Cons
Very difficult for drivers to advance into management, If you get sick and go on short term disability, they fire you after six months.

Horrible management. They have this culture pyramid that shows how they value each other completely. Not the case.
Unknown (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXMarch 1, 2018
My advice is to steer clear of this company unless you want to work there 10 plus years and then they fire you for no reason other than getting rid of seniority. You give them your everything and all they do is tear you down. Constantly pushing you back from achieving higher status. They definitely like playing favorites.

Outbound Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Austell, GAFebruary 4, 2018
Long work hours with not much positive reinforcement for exemplary work. Great pay and benefits with a lot of options for advancement. CEO sets a great standard for hoe leadership should behave and truly leads by example. However, somewhere down the chain of command, that culture is lost.

Very good employer
Manager (Current Employee) –  Dallas-Fort Worth, TXJanuary 19, 2018
Southeastern is a very good employer. We are a family owned company, and they try hard to make people feel like part of the family. The freight business is fast-paced and time sensitive, so this isn't the perfect job for everyone. But if you like working with people and feeling like you have accomplished something at the end of the day, you'll be happy at SEFL. The company is very transparent about their big picture: operating costs, plans to expand, trends in the industry, etc. We have a great benefits package, very good insurance options and we have a great 401(k). A lot of my co-workers have moved up in the company, if you ask to do more, they help you achieve it. There is also a sense of security in your job. The company has never had a layoff.
Pros
Culture, no layoffs in company history, 401(k) plan
Cons
Not enough Vacation Days
