it's a great company to work for, however with the wrong person in management it can be a nightmare
Prosgreat people to work with, relaxed atmosphere, and nice hours
Good company to work for but poor management very stressful lots of hours and dedication put in but never a thank you for all your hard work. Pay is good.
Must be very detailed oriented and able to multi-task. Ability to step in to another position at will Must be able to communicate with all types of people. A lot of one on one type of position.
ConsCould do a little better at communication with employees
Saia LTL Freight
Very little support from the corporate level or from direct management when dealing with problems or pricing issues. If business opportunities do not fit inside their business model, forget it.
I checked the dock for unmarked freight. Answer customers questions about billing, tracking shipments, billing out bill of ladings and claim issues. Set up invoices and purchase orders for accounting and maintenance departments. Scheduled drop trailers for Walmart. Dispatched drivers for deliveries and pickups. Working fast pace, multitasking and knowing my job duties were very important for the production of our office. Taking care of customers insures our success. I enjoyed working with all the employees they were hard workers and cared about the success of the company. I enjoyed the fast pace of the job I always had something to work on- I was always busy and felt I was part of a winning team. I learned something new everyday and was a better person for it.
Management hates fmla
Money is good but the management allows harassment to happen repeatedly. Imagine being on vacation and charged with calling off from work. Imagine going to the next in charge and nothing happens. There's limited chances to advance and there is very little reward for dedicated employees. Management is known for bullying and I've seen it happen too many times to count. If you just need extra cash it's good but that's about it. There's been fights on the dock after management was told before it escalated to physical. Another fight a guy tried to hit a co-worker with a broken board from a pallet.
Good place to work
Good money . Good equipment . Fast paced makes day go by faster. If I ever needed a day off for something important no problem getting it. Thay have worked it.
this is the worst place ever. supervision sucks and they dont care about you. they will use you until you have nothing left to give. they are all selfish.
Fun fast paced environment
The is the perfect job of you don't mind wearing may different hats. When I started I was in sales and then I was moved around to help out in operations. I pretty much touch all the different titles they had to offer. My days went really fast and I worked with some fun people that kept me motivated to be successful!
ProsFast paced, paid pretty decent, fun employees, and excellent advancement opportunities.
ConsNot much work live balance, pretty unorganized, things change daily, and always in the hot seat
