Overall Reviews at Forward Air
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.
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
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.
Average trucking company.
Drove for a bulk mail company, that employed quality people.
Smaller hub out of Des Moines, Iowa.
Not supportive of FMLA and helping employees through medical issues.
Great company just hard to advance. Mangement was very flexible and understanding. Ok pay, and ok benefits. Just takes forever to advance to a full time employee
good place to work and good people to work for.
It is good company and the management is great. Everyone is always ready to help.
Conssome of the company policies are somewhat strict, and not forgiving
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.
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.
