    Pros

    Drivers are generally treated with respect, the equipment is kept in good condition, lots of small perks like the ability to choose your own routing or bank days off, etc. There are still many employees who take pride in their work.

    Cons

    Company thinks 10,000 miles/month is good for an over the road driver. Pay rates lag industry as well. Driver turnover used to be lowest in the industry, but it is rapidly rising as the brass focuses their attention on attracting lower-cost employees (new hires and those with little experience). As a result, the company is no longer positioned as the premium service offering the drivers could take pride in.

    Con-way is very organized in their general business practices. Their fleets are well-maintained.

    Pros

    Fleets are well maintained and the they do emphasize safety.

    Cons

    They're not considerate about getting you home on time. You really have no control over your own personal schedule at all.

    Pros

    Always having full availability to our fleet manager. Ran a dedicated run from Santa Fe Springs to Newtown Pennsylvania every week.

    Cons

    Other than not being home, really no cons. But that goes with the job of being an OTR driver

    Pros

    Truck fleet is well maintained.

    Cons

    I have never worked with a larger group of deceptive individuals in my life. I started working for this company over a year ago and not one time in that year have they got me home on time. Not once in an entire year. Load planners and dispatchers are constantly lying to you the entire time you are trying to make it home. They have posters hanging up all over the terminals talking about Integrity, Communication, and making drivers feel as though they are apart of a team and not just a number. At the end of the day your are just that, another number. If you had an on time performance that matched theirs you wouldn't have a job,but its okay if they do it to you and your family. THEY DO NOT CARE!! I for one am tired of being lied to. I was told this was a great company to work for. What a complete disappointment.
