Overall Reviews at Forward Air

2.0
Executive Assistant to Senior Vice President | Humble, TX | Mar 10, 2020
Upper management poorly motivates non-management. Respect of non-management is minimal.
I would not go to work for this company if given the opportunity again. Management is poor at doing their jobs. In some departments, "the inmates run the asylum".
ProsRare opportunities to work remotely.
ConsDisrespect; Poor management; Non-competative pay.

Housekeeper | Humble, TX | Jan 11, 2020
Be ready to work physically labor
Management is a big issue for me. Supervisor need management training etc. He lies often but let your discernment filter out the bs. Often times, you may have to go overhead to find out the truth of the matter in whatever is going on dealing with work, schedules, etc.
Pros45 mins lunch break
Consoverall typical work of unorganization workflow

Great place to work
Great place to work. Management was outstanding and showed they cared for their employees in their departments. They did things like having drawings for free stuff with attendance and fed employees when road conditions were horrible.
ProsManagement did several things to thank employees
ConsLong hours at times

Operations Associate | Groveport, OH | Sep 30, 2019
Excellent place to work
Management and fellow employees are great teachers, and pleasant to be around. Very fast paced working environment. Highly recommended this as a place to work for anyone willing to learn and work where you are challenged every day.

Truck Driver | Des Moines, IA | Sep 17, 2015
Average trucking company.
Drove for a bulk mail company, that employed quality people. Hours varied. Smaller hub out of Des Moines, Iowa. Not supportive of FMLA and helping employees through medical issues.

Forklift Operator | Denver, CO | Nov 10, 2020
Felt like working on a plantation!
Forward air is just another corporate American company that takes advantage of their workers & doesn’t compensate for the hard work & sacrifice. You basically have to play the kiss butt or be friends of management just to be considered for promotion. I would not recommend working for this company unless you enjoy being talked down to like a child, lack of leadership and being under compensated unless you’re in good with management.
ProsCan listen to music, free lunches, paid weekly
ConsNo leadership, ego & power trip’s, not compensated properly for hard work, favoritism, corporate American business, etc.
3.0
Administrative Specialist | Memphis, TN | Jan 30, 2020
Not satisfied
I've worked for this company for 4 years with minimal raises and no room to grow. I would have loved to stay and continue my career at FA but when ends don't meet, I have to look elsewhere.
5.0
Customer Service Representative | Carson, CA | Jan 24, 2017
productive and efficient
Great people and place to work at. Management has an open door policy where every employees is able to speak with the terminal manager about any concern they might have. 3
Prosvery good training, open door policy.
Consnight shift hours

Every driver has the same complaint with not getting paid our 18 percent.warehouse is told to punch out and wait when there is no work and sometimes sits there for 3 hrs waiting for the next truck. Management and the company should be ashamed of themselves.
