Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Great company, management can be hit or miss as most learders are young and may have some trouble adjusting with their leadership role. Similiar to many companies, management will move on and new will come in. So there will be a chance to eventually work with good leaders and great leaders.

Pros

Great company, Good compensation

Cons

Types of hours, Lack of continuity with Management

Good pay terrible culture in shop

Good pay but no advancement. Benefits is the best part. Take care of employees in time of need. Only do things in they’re time of need. Very good at taking advantage of there employees.

Pros

All benefits

Cons

Over worked and under appreciated

Fantastic company, pay and benefits.

Made a great living. Most coworkers were great. Owners truly believe the culture they nurture. Company has grown too large and young leadership will never allow this culture to continue. Owners can no longer be hands on.

Pros

Pay and benefits.

Cons

Work/life balance, no longer employee oriented. No longer customer oriented. Everything is about the numbers.

Productive and fun work place

I’ve been to several freight companies and southeastern freight stands out the most because they care. This company is Christian own but that doesn’t means everybody else is a Christian

Pros

Cookouts, safety awards, great vacations and personal days off

Cons

Hard work, be prepared to go hard

Good People

Culture is awesome, not hard work very flexible schedule. The people are great, it's just an extremely long drive to make from where I live. Other than that not a bad place to work.

Pros

Culture Involvement

Do you enjoy working at your company?

Every work experience is unique. Tell us about yours. Rate your employer.

Good pay, good equipment.

Be extremely careful not to get hurt on the job.Company profit and preservation are number one in their eyes.Regardless of how many years you worked there, how good of a job you did, you will be discharged if you're injury is "problematic."

Pros

Good pay.

Cons

Too many spineless " yes men" in management.

good payhorrible leadership

pays well good benefits. completely unorganized. Local leadership has no Idea what their doing and it shows in how the trailers are loaded, but they still expect you to get it off. 8 hours worth of deliveries and they give you 5 or 6 hours to get it done.

Pros

pay benefits

Cons

Bad leadership that will put you in an early grave from the stress.

Great group of guys to work with

GREAT Company!! Hardest thing about the dock... ROLLS!!! Most are heavy and take a good amount of strength to manually move. Job would be easy without the rolls lol. From management to the pallet jack guys, you couldn't ask for a better group of guys to work with. Everybody gets a nickname because it's easier to remember. Management is the best I've come across in my 30+ years of working. Just in the short time I've been here, I've seen guys work a day, a week, then you don't see em again lol. It's not for everybody, very physical (again, rolls) at times. If your young and don't mind the heavy lifting at times, I'd recommend Southeastern to someone looking for a career. They have so many opportunities for advancement, just speak up and let them know what your interested in. Put your time in and move on up, the opportunity is there, it's up to you.

Pros

Great company, great pay & great co-workers

Cons

ROLLS ROLLS ROLLS... they are the enemy

Excellent place to work

This is an excellent place for employment. Management is employee and family focused taking the time to know you as an employee and also a person. I would recommend working for this company to anyone. They “practice what they preach.”

Pros

Flexible hours, great management

Cons

No breaks
Was this review helpful?

Fun place to work but upper management make it difficult at times.

Great company to work for, really don’t care about tenure when you leave. Drivers have a sense that they are the ones that run things, SCM should hold office personnel to the same standard as dock workers. Pay scale for supervisors needs to be reviewed. There should be no cap salary for supervisors that have 15+ years compared to a OPS SUP or ASCM that’s only been there for 2.

Pros

Fun group

Cons

Healthcare

Great job security but unpredictable schedule

The company has a strong culture and cares for it's people. There is opportunity for advancement if you are willing to relocate. You are paid fairly compared to other LTL carriers.

Pros

Company Culture and Job Security

Cons

Long unpredictable hours

Fast paced

Fast pasted, stressful job. You have to be willing to relocate if you want to go into leadership and move up. Always pushing for more out of everyone without support

Pros

Good pay

Cons

No chance of advancement without relocating

great company, great staff, hard work that will keep you good and busy.

days can be a bit hectic, average 18-20 deliveries a day plus 5-10 pick-ups mixed in. Deliveries made to any and all types of businesses plus residential deliveries (even in the big 53' trailers) after the normal route is done, back to yard then back out to drop and hook another trailer to a local account, average 10-11 hrs per day, some longer, some shorter depending on route. great staff and managment, great company values. overall I do recommend.

Pros

great management, staff, job security. great company

Cons

lots of work to be done in seemingly short periods of time, can be stressful, hours can be a bit long for work/life balance

Good place to work

Managers are good and work environment is alright. Has some issues but that’s to be expected working in this type of jobs but benefits out way the negative.

Great culture

Great culture, wouldn’t have left if it wasn’t for moving. Their biggest concern is safety of their employees and customers. Their second concern is employees over product which makes them a great family and employee oriented organization.

Good work

It's a job and they pay very well but at times it can be exhausting. The seniority part is what's most frustrating because it would seem like you're always at the bottom. You'll pull the short straw most days.

Pros

Pay, Easy job

Cons

Hours can be too long

Great Place to Work

The Company has really exceeded all of my expectations. They are huge on internal development. The company does care about each individual and their family. It is the trucking business so some days can be long but no worse than any other LTL.

Pros

Internal development

Cons

Transportation (long hours)

Very active work place which has been around for many years

Working with Southeastern Freightlines was lots of fun and I was able to manage my purchase as a first time home buyer. There was a lot learned from the billing.
