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

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

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.
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 .

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.

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.

Mandatory Wellness testing they called voluntary if you don't do it you are fined $800 if you're an individual if you're married and neither of you submit to their blood work test you would be fined $1,600. I will leave this company as I will not work for somebody who extorts money from their employees don't ever work for Ward Trucking the worst trucking company on the planet
Dock Worker (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – October 12, 2017
Managers and supervisors were cool. There is no organization what so ever. This place is a mess (Bensalem terminal) freight is damaged on a daily without a care. Trucks are loaded very dangerously and incorrectly.. coming from supervisor when he tell you to do something that you know isn't right.
