Current Employee - Operations Supervisor says"Much too many to count"
Current Employee - Delivery Driver says"Management do not communicate and dispatch is very poor in communication"
Current Employee - Truck Driver says"Half our day is in the dock. If your a driver bring your work gloves. No pallet jacks or any equipment sent out with you. Management sits in there office and does Notting. The dispatchers are even worse. Run as fast as you can. Don't apply here."
Former Employee - Account Manager says"No training. Out dated technology. AE's do their own customer service, collections, sales, and internal learning. Horrific Management on the Sales side. You are competing against 3pls, which can offer your customer better Reddaway pricing than you are able. Drivers who hate their job."
Line Haul Driver (Former Employee) says"Company was wasting money faster than they could make it. They trained 11 drivers in my class and all three of us new drivers were immediately laid off from our jobs in anderson ca. Why pay to train us just to lay is off."
Dock Supervisor (Former Employee) says"I worked here for 90 days. It was a sweatshop. Was fired on my 89th with a blatant lie that a truck was not loaded on time (I knew it was loaded on time). As a supervisor I had to deal with extremely disrespectful teamsters who would so everything possible to get away with the minimum. Training was non-existent. It was a sweashop - so bad, I never got lunch breaks and literally had to eat a sandwich on the dock. 12 hours nights were typical. Paychecks were issued by paper! Come on - this not 1980! It was a very dirty and filthy place to work - absolutely wretched. They also FORCE you onto a 401K - which I did not need or want as I was retired military. I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy. TERRIBLE!"
Team Leader/Driver (Current Employee) says"I am still employed at Reddaway and it is a task to make it through the days. We work in Colorado Springs, CO with the bare minimum to do our jobs effectively. We work in a dirt lot at the back of YRC's yard with a trailer converted into a makeshift dock and a port-o-let. Moving up to 3,500 pounds a pallet, trailer to trailer, without the appropriate equipment. The one positive is the hard working women and men that put there heart and soul into their jobs.The people that work ReddawayManagement"
Dock Worker/Forklift Operator (Current Employee) says"Females beware of Gender discrimination as a dock worker or yard hostler.Terminal managers do whatever they want and do not know anything about transportation logistics. Management forces us to work 12+ hour shifts m-f.only good thing is med/den/vision teamster union and weekends off.Pay is only $14.94/hr and after 15 or 20 years caps out at $19/hr. NotNo commuteToo much to list"
Account Manager (Former Employee) says"Not a goiod place to work if your in sales , operations first sales dead last. lack of team work, biggest mistake evere ! Pay is a joke and micro managed.NoneSucks to work there."
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) says"place is terrible manager of the terminal is ill tempered and childish they require you to work 12 hours a day almost everyday if not more. thy dont care about trying to balance out your work and home life"
Line Haul Clerk (Current Employee) says"when I first started working at Reddaway my fellow co-workers would complain about each other behind their back and after that person had left the work place the co-workers would move on to another person to complain about."
Line driver (Current Employee) says"You are just a number. All they care about is getting one more trailer moved. Management sucks, most co-workers are ok. Hours are long and they believe they can tell you what and how to run your cdl. They want you to give them time without compensation. Their equipment would not pass inspection but you either drive it or sit and not get paid.NoneRun down equipment, terrible management."
OS&D Clerk/ Office (Former Employee) says"My 2nd day on the job the manager said to just sit and look pretty and read , 3rd day rolled around and I was still there sitting and looking pretty and reading , by the time 1st week was up I still had no training, no guidance, nothing !!! . Management gave me a desk and said I can rearrange it that would suit the way I work , and not to worry about the evening gal since we had to share the desk, he was more concerned I settle in since I would be working closely with the supervisor in getting trucks out, I did arrange the desk but the next day the evening gal rearranged it back to what she wanted and plastered her name all over the desk , management attitude was oh well. They are so far behind in technology in the trucking business, none of their procedures made sense, I was surprised on how day to day operations were so backwards, and how much the office was not up to current guidelines. At first I thought I could make a difference since I been in the trucking business for quite a few years and it was so close to where I lived, but I was really really happy when I was offered another job at another company that paid twice as much money . This place will go down as a twilight zone job.close to homeno training, low pay, flip flop instructions, very high turnover"
Driver (Former Employee) says"This is a dying company! No investment in workers. No investment in management. This leads to a backstabbing work environment where doing your job well is overlooked because everyone including management is trying to claw ahead. Management has no clue what is actually required to accomplish the services they have sold. Promises are constantly made to customers with no way to fulfill them. Worked there for eight years and it just got worse every year. It’s sad because it was once the best company in the LTL industry.NonEverything"
Driver (Current Employee) says"They don't care about you. They pretend to care but play it off very bad. This place only cares about numbers and I understand about the bottom line but you could still hit those numbers and treat people with respect.NoneToo many"
Line Haul Driver (Former Employee) says"Cut throat back stabbers.You will get screwed Poor management. They will find a way to fire you. If they cant they will make something up. I got shafted by the managers.No prosManny"
LTL Route Driver (Current Employee) says"I have worked for this company for 6 years and the management is the worst I have ever seen at the corporate and local level. They tell you safety is number one.... however when it comes to being safe they do not do it. You will never see your family do to the long tedious hours and they are unwilling to work with you if you have family emergencies. And they have been on a 15% wage cut for the last 10 years. There is absolutely no room for advancement in this company. The company is financially unstable and according to them they will go out of business unless employees take a pay cut on the last union contract.nonebad management, bad hours, bad pay, no advancement"
Manager (Current Employee) says"The culture is terrible, as well as, the executive team. They could care less about their employees and are discriminatory. The HR team is bought out by the executives and there is no where to go if you have an issue. For those that plan on sticking up for your rights under the employment laws to protect against the abuse of companies like this, plan on being fired! Would not recommendNoneTo many to count"
Dock worker (Former Employee) says"DO NOT EVER accept a job here. The freight gets treated with more respect than the employees do. The wages suck, there's no advancement, the terminal manager doesn't know wtf he's doing. The worthless teamsters ain't worth a you know what. They say they care about you, but when you have a problem they won't lift a finger to help you. All they do is steal your money, oh I'm sorry they call it union dues. Working here was like walking into a jail cell every day. I wasted 3 years of my life here, & every time I asked for a raise they pretty much told me to go f@"k myself. They wanna work you to the bone, but they don't want to pay you. They pretty much expect you to work for free. I'm so glad that I got another job, & I'm finally out of reddaway state pen.Can't think of any. Except great co workersLousy pay, lousy hours, worthless teamsters union"
Driver (Former Employee) says"a typical day at work: getting to work at 9am inspecting my tractor and performing a pre trip inspection once done i head to the dock and check out my route and my trailer. what you learned: to come in and do what is asked of you. management: unorganized no sense of direction and treats there employees bad. your co-workers: only thinks of themselves will back stab you in a heart beat the hardest part of the job: there is none. the most enjoyable part of the job: clocking out and going home.It was a Job.management the way the company is ran."
City Dispatcher (Former Employee) says"This place is like the wild west. The dock runs 3 hours late daily and everyone on the dock could care less.The dispatch is like a revolving door. They cant keep anyone decent because the one dispatcher has grown roots to the ground and fears anyone coming in. The terminal manager and his assistant drink coffee and swap stories all day, do nothing productive. The drivers do what they want for the most part. The drivets were the best part of the job."
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) says"Reddaway is publicly held, so the objective is to make money for the shareholders. Some companies can do this while having a heart and good management, but this is not one of those companies."
Local Driver (Former Employee) says"Benefits are nice Everything else is sh**. Management doesnt care. The hours arent there. The money is terrible, especially when theres been no work to even get 40 hours. You get sent to bs locations out of state to help other terminals, pretty much sets you up for failure.BenefitsEverything else"
CDL Class A Driver (Former Employee) says"Told I was going to make deliveries to their work site's, be home daily, show up for work and asked me if I'm ready to stay out of town the whole week, they need to communicate with their employeesNoneAll"
