      There Is A Reason For The Constant High Turnover Rate (Night Shift)

      Pros

      In the beginning stages of the 2 week training period, you feel welcomed, not pressured, appreciated and have a sense that management cares about their employees. However, things change for the worst once you go live (typically starting the 3rd week). You are given a talk, to provide expectations of speed weekly, with zero errors. The problem is, you are NOT given the chance, opportunity nor time to actually reach that goal. Instead, the night time higher up only cares about numbers and expects you to already be at 21+ bills per hour, prior to you even going live. Not to mention, that person not taking into consideration the different learning curve(s) that everyone has. It's a do as I say or you're gone type of environment. I've heard so many good things about this company in the beginning. However, it clearly was not about the data entry department. Suggestion: Instead of treating people like they are expendable, robots and not allowed to make mistakes....treat them like human beings and actually give people a chance. You might be surprised at the decrease of people who leave and increase in those who stay. As well as staff encouraging others to apply.

      Pros

      The pay is great but you will be worked to the bone.

      Cons

      It’s a set pay chart and you get raises for how long you have been employed. There are guys who have been there for years earning top pay but they don’t work hard.

      Pros

      Pay was great, but newest upper management has not stayed competitive in wages and now drivers are leaving in droves.

      Cons

      Don't get injured on the job, if you go out for medical leave you have to jump through tons of hoopes after doctor releases you back to full time no restrictions have to do another DOT physical even if you just had it done before injury. And also have a physical ability test taken because they don't trust your professional Doctor.

      Good pay, 12 days vacation to start, 100% 401k match up to 6%, can transfer anywhere in the US that has an opening, company will train you and pay for your class A cdl

      Cons

      Overtime is after 60 hours, no end time (hope you like to see the sun rise), company invests less and less into people and facilities every year despite record breaking profits, management is hit and miss, freight is always dumped or super heavy for hand freight, you will get hurt
