    Pros

    Great culture and great people to work around. The managers really care about their employees and will do everything to ensure you are comfortable in your position.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of upward movement. Upward movement is gained through time at the company alone, not really by performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more promotions to employees to encourage better work.

    Pros

    Professional environment with an opportunity to move up "Get Promoted" within the company.

    Cons

    Working long hours when necessary with and without rewards. Management will listen to and implement all good ideas as long as there is no safety or business conflict.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk with the average worker more and especially the new personnel.

    Pros

    Great place to work. My coworkers are cool to work with. Management does its best to liven up the atmosphere and create excitement for a position that can be extremely repetitive. They give you the tools you need to succeeded and continue training even after the 3 week training period. The company is always getting new business and new career opportunities are always becoming available. Really great benefits that are extremely helpful

    Cons

    I don't really have too many complaints. A lot of the complaints I here is the pay is low. Its definitely fair for not requiring a degree and the benefits available makes it better. Sometimes the hours can be long but that's the standard for the transportation industry. Another complaint is that sometimes politics are at play. It isn't anything that brings down morale but its noticeable that there are favorites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep up the good work and cut down on the favoritism

    Pros

    Time off is wonderful and its a company that you are able to move up in at a quick pace. They are a large company but address you on a personal level. The pay is great also.

    Cons

    This company does have some issues. They mainly involve the driving portion of the company. In that I mean that sometimes it is hard to get back for your time off but they work hard to get you back in time.
