Customer Service (Former Employee) – Easton, PA – October 17, 2018
fast paced, nice atmosphere, great co-workers, great management. Hardest part when all phone lines are ringing, customer complaints are the worst when you have no control of their shipment. Most enjoyable part going to work. I never minded going into work, co-workers fun, outgoing. Manager is fair to everyone
Driver (Current Employee) – Richfield, OH – September 24, 2018
Corporate business mentality of giving 1950's ideas for men to do the freight moving , thus injuries happen all the time . Building to work out of is falling apart and is a dump . Company will put money into trucks but not the facility and pay is below average . No 401 match or percentage of ,no overtime . Health ins. out of pocket is so high , you might as well have no ins . .
Driver (Current Employee) – Philadelphia pa – October 4, 2018
They dont put money on your 401k. They don't pay overtime, you work over 60 hrs more. $2000 health insurance deductive family Linehud 60 cents mile less then 400 miles a day. Over the road , they call it know regional 68 cent no warranty on the miles you will make. is a sucker deal. 27.67 for day work
Dock Worker/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Camp Hill, PA – November 15, 2018
Never apply or suggest someone else to unless you want them to have a nervous breakdown. Terrible ideas tried. Nobody listens to valued employees. Just show up to collect a check. Loafers are rewarded True story.
Biller (Former Employee) – Bensalem, PA – November 30, 2018
Working at Ward was disappointing. The building is always dirty, everything constantly breaks down, no one listens to one another or tries to help each other out, the drivers get away with almost everything and then everything else is your fault.
Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Easton, PA – July 22, 2018
I worked line haul for this company, worst ever job. I would be on the road for 5 or 6 days without getting home. The start time was inconsistent, and depending on what terminal you started at, it was hard getting a hold of someone to find out when you were starting your night.
P&D Driver (Current Employee) – Bensalem, PA – August 30, 2018
No time and half, no retirement, seniority accounts for nothing, no room to advance, feel like just a number and lack of communication is awful, no one seems to know what’s going on in upper management
Local P&D Driver (Current Employee) – Wilkes-Barre, PA – July 13, 2018
I have only been here three months but cannot complain. The workload is good. Pay is hourly and they are giving me the hours that I need to make a decent pay check. You get a raise after 6 months then after your first year. Every once in a while it is slow and may only do 4 days instead of 5, but the fact that I can do a little over 12 hours any given day the week it does not affect me that hard. You get weekends off which is great if you have a family and want to enjoy life. So far I have not had any issues with anyone in Management. It is like a family atmosphere where they treat you with respect and are willing to work with you if you have any issues. I can not comment yet about the benefits because I just became eligible for the Medical, Dental, and Vision benefits this week so I haven't utilized them as of yet. Overall I have to say that I am enjoying working for Ward and I have over 20 years in the industry so this statement says a lot.
Good hourly pay, Family Benefits, Good Management, Friendly atmosphere, Feel appreciated
Logistics Solutions Manager (Current Employee) – Altoona, PA – March 27, 2018
I've been here almost 2 years now and it's been challenging at times, but people really listen to you and upper management is just a call away. A very forward thinking company - some stragglers stuck in the stone age, but things get done here. Seems like there is a lot of room for advancement. I didn't have the highest expectations of Ward but it's been 2 years and I couldn't be happier!
No 401K match. Do profit sharing, but I'd rather have the guaranteed match
Executive Director (Current Employee) – Altoona, PA – March 27, 2018
You are not a number here. Treated like family. Not that families don't disagree but the company is always willing to listen to both sides. The company is always recognizing employees for safety, seniority, performance, and wellness.
Family owned, in business 86 years, never missed a paycheck, profit sharing
Forklift Operator/Shipping and Receiving (Former Employee) – Easton, PA – March 2, 2018
Loved working for this company. the managment is awesome as well as your co-workers. Fast paced environment with safety first always in effect. Money was generous as is the bonuses. A place where your work is always appreiciated. Your effort will never goe unnoticed.
Non CDL Driver (Current Employee) – Easton, PA – February 10, 2018
long hours between 10-14 hours a day pay is below average with no ot offered all straight time management thinks they are above the rules some newer equipment but a lot of older stuff. dispatch cant seem to answer a phone call but will text you and tell you don't bother them.
The job work balance level was bad. I and couldn't believe , there was no 401 k match plan wow. they were unprofessional if you told you boss personal info . It will leak back to you . if you need something fix's it would take all week . the hardest part of the job is there never on time with your route getting loaded up .
Collections Specialist (Former Employee) – altoona pa – March 8, 2018
its okay place to work, low pay and everyone has at least two jobs but the people are really nice there and the hours are steady. I left due to a very long commute and low wages it no longer made sense to work there because they don't really give good raises.
Forklift Driver (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – February 10, 2018
What i learned at my job, was how to operate a forklift. Also how to load trailer trucks properly and quickly. The workplace culture there was quick paced and stressful, trucks needed to loaded in a quick a timely fashion.
