Senior level management is terrible
Former employee (Former Employee) –  WisconsinAugust 13, 2019
The senior level management is woefully out of touch with day to day reality. There is lots of talk about how "every employee matters", but if you tell the top people anything other than that they're great, you're in for it.
This company is unstable. If the current top leadership doesn't change, it's a sinking ship. If this company exists in 5 years I'll be very surprised.
There is no corporate vision. Every decision is a reaction, instead of there being a clear plan and then the company moving according to that plan.
Pros
Very few
Cons
Terrible management, Raises non-existent

Management doesn’t have a clue, or don’t care about their employees
CDL A Truck Driver (Current Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIJune 24, 2019
Entry pay is lower than competition resulting in poor productivity. High employee turnover especially in the terminal, results in poor loading and damage to freight. It seems that the company is trying to limit expenses to maximize cash flow to sell the company. 10% of the docks are unusable. Trailers are in poor conditions. Many times there are no trailers to do short line haul. All around a poorly run operation.
Pros
Flexible
Cons
Management sucks

Driver Coach (Current Employee) –  Neenah, WIMay 1, 2019
Tax Airfreight is a decent place to work. The pay and advancement however is severely lacking. If you are only looking for a place that will give you plenty of hours with no advancement tax air is for you. If you desire competitive pay and development then you will not be satisfied here
Pros
Plenty of hours
Cons
Low pay and no advancement

Straight truck driver (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIJune 18, 2018
Driver there several years...If you like to start when you punch in forget that,,,wait some times 3 hours to get loaded. They expect same work when leaving that late as if you had full day. Hard to do pick ups deliveries take so long cause of late leaving. In over 5 years one raise and that was bad as started some people at more than I was making.after many years there.. Liked to run you all over town not even in your designate area. compared to other companies low pay and bad wait times to load ( some times 3 hours sitting around) Dock people are very under trained and big turn over. If they loose
U-Line account will go under. But Drivers are great people to work with and what keeps drivers there I think.
Pros
Drivers are great people and nice to work with
Cons
Management sucks, wait to load ( sometimes 3 hours) don't care as long as can get truck stuffed with deliveries.

Fast paced and stressful at times.

Pros
Flexible

No backup

N/A (Current Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIMarch 21, 2018
All I can say this job needs major fixing. What I can say they're pushing for change, they need real stern management. To man seniors use of old structure. The hourly employees are afraid of change.

Plenty family working on same shifts, bring conflict inside the work place. Lack of communication, they brought one guy that is improving change it's a battle for him. Very strong communicator and straight forward guy.

The company has been standing for 40 years but needs a guy like who I stated.

If you want to improve Tax Air you need to fix the issues. Don't allow good people walk away.
Pros
One good management performer. Come to work watch your scanning
Cons
Hourly employees not good, communication!

Fun place/easy going
Driver (Current Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIJanuary 19, 2018
If you are willing to work and help out as a team member you will love it. They don't ride you or try to break you, and once you are loaded and on the road you are pretty much left to complete your route. Easy work and I love my customers. I get a lot of new ones and a lot of the same on a daily basis.
Pros
Easy, fun
Cons
Understaffed

Truckload Services Manager (Current Employee) –  Milwaukee, WINovember 2, 2017
Ownership is fantastic, but managerial staff could be improved. Not very efficient in some areas, long term customer relationship, but difficult situation to compete in today's LTL market. Nationwide division is strong.
Pros
Great solid ownership
Cons
ineffective management

High school Job
Dock Worker (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIOctober 27, 2017
No advancement. Short staffed. Over worked. Too many people in the office and nobody on the warehouse floor working. $13/hr is not a competitive salary compared to surrounding businesses with similar work. Job is for a high school student not an adult trying to make a living.
Pros
Work as many hours as you want
Cons
Pay sucks, stressful cause your short staffed.

Backbreaking labor
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Cudahy, WIAugust 28, 2017
Work was fatiguing, and the pay was minimal.
Started as a loader, improved to forklift driver and scanner, but still had to help out the other employees (who were mainly temps and lackadaisical) finish their work, which included shrink-wrapping pallets of freight and properly marking them so the forklift drivers can locate freight they need to load easier.
Pros
Varying work hours
Cons
Varying work hours
