    I worked at Southeastern Freight Lines

    Pros

    Pay is good starting out.

    Cons

    They don't value their workers. Very petty and bully environment in training. Hard to get past training. Trainers make their own rules, lie, bully, and talk badly about trainees if they don't like them personally. So getting hired isn't based off performance.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the trainers and bring people in that like training and aren't petty. Also make sure all the trainers are on the same page.

    I worked at Southeastern Freight Lines

    Pros

    Good people, Good Pay and decent benefits, and Good CEO

    Cons

    No vacation 1st year. At 2 years get 2 weeks and can’t get 3 weeks until 8 years of employment. No sick or personal days. Long hours. hard work and integrity does not pay off. Company has no structured way to promote people, its all left to the judgement of the service center managers. This definitely leads to discrimination unintentionally for minorities are being (Adversely Impacted) by the hiring and promoting practices...

If you don’t honor it then no one will. And HR has got to do better for salary employees as far as benefits and vacation days. That’s why its so hard for this company to retain good talent. People aren’t settling for long working hours with barely...
