      Pros

      Pays well and weekly 7% 401k match Two weeks vacation after first year(first year 1) progressive technology to make are jobs easier Good people for the most part.

      Cons

      If your a truck driver or dock worker overtime isn't counted until your over 52 hours. Medical is Cigna and not best insurance in world Six day work weeks are mandatory random and some time not necessary If you get hurt or sick long-term they Basically fire you no matter how long you've been with the company and if you are able to come back you have to start your service sonority all over. Moving up in the company takes a high level of butt kissing or knowing the right behind to put your nose into.

      Management does not seem to care about their employees. Only when they do something that doesn’t quite meet their standard. Hard work seems to often go unnoticed

      Pros

      Great pay, regular small raises, great culture, coworkers (mostly) and benefits for full-time employees. The pay makes up for most of the complaints.

      Cons

      It's hot in the summer, and cold in the winter. You work 4am-10am, or 6pm-11pm, sometimes both back to back for several days. It can be very hard to adjust to a freight schedule, and its very hot/cold/dirty.
