    I have been working at Estes Express full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay is good. Line haul gets the lions share but that's the same at all ltl companies

    Cons

    Equipment sucks. They run the trucks to long. Not uncommon to see tractors with more than a million miles.

    Advice to Management

    Your company do whatever you want to do. It's not like a single review would change thi gs anyways

    I worked at Estes Express part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good Salary for the Area

    Cons

    Bad management and very unprofessional environment. Hostile working environment and different rules for male and female employees.

    Advice to Management

    Don't only pay attention to numbers. First priority should be customer service. Good employees are being chased out by bad ones. There should not be a different set of rules for certain employees.

    I have been working at Estes Express full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits package, 401k, competitive salaries overall. Definitely a driver's company to work for. Laid back to a point that remains professional but you don't feel on edge constantly. Management is very understanding and will work with you on family needs or emergency time off. The company is constantly updating some aspect of its technology each year. Like any LTL line, its is crazy when it gets busy but it makes...

    Cons

    Lack of communication between management. Lack of up to date equipment.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the toxic employees that are making it hard on the one's who care to do the right thing for the company. Reward the one's who really commit and not abuse them because they are good at what they do.
