Good place to work
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABMarch 12, 2014
Pros: good hours, great managment
Cons: only a temporary position
Con-way was a great place to work. A typical day was always busy, as there was freight coming in from US and all over Canada. All co-workers were awesome, everyone had all work assessed accordingly. The hardest part was learning to deal with the US side of the business being a Canadian. The best part of the job the data entry, as always.

Exciting place to learn the industry
CITY DRIVER PICKUP AND DELIVERY / LINEHAUL (Former Employee), Calgary, ABSeptember 20, 2013
Pros: friendliest team and excellent management
Cons: wages could increase in the ltl industry
A typical day at work would include loading LTL freight into the trailers, hooking up a set of 3 trailers and driving it to a meet and turn
i.e.) Sweet grass, MT from Calgary, AB and Back.
I have learned quite a bit from this company including how to deal with customs documents and learning how to handle different types of freight being handled especially – more... the dangerous goods.
The hardest part of the job is the long hours.
Most enjoyable part would definitely be getting to know your customers and establishing a bond with them to maintain a good image for your company and yourself. – less

Pros: profit sharing.
Cons: sometimes work was overwhelming.
Unload incoming freight, and re-load for local deliveries.
Each day was different.
Some co-worker a pleasure to work with, others were more difficult.
Hardest part of the job was trying to maneuver a 48' trailer in downtown streets.
Management was there for support.

Driver (Current Employee), Oklahoma City, OKAugust 17, 2014
Pros: when you get high on the seniority list you will be able to go in early
Cons: have to drive 8 plus hours then have to work on the dock for a few hours.
A typical day at Conway start after you are called in.. Everyday you have wait to be on call in. They call drivers in according to how much freight is ready to be delivered. Conway calls drivers in off a seniority list. the higher you are on the seniority list the earlier you will be able to come into work. I have learns lots of driving maneuvers how – more... to parallel park a semi and how to maneuver a tracker and trailer in tight space and in closed quarters. New Station manager is cleaning up the station trying to make it a better work environment for everybody. I enjoy all my co-workers it like my second family.The hardest part of this job is when you are at the bottom of the seniority list and getting called in late and then just to get hours you have to stay all night. The most enjoyable part of the job for me is when im driving. – less

DSR-Driver Sales Rep (Current Employee), Cartersville, GAAugust 17, 2014
Pros: drivers i work with.
Cons: management
Questionable ethics and integrity. When I first started out at Con-Way it was by far the best paying job I had ever had, and as a female
it allowed me to provide a great income for my family. As the years have pasted this company has improved on work conditions, meaning
better equipment, safe stack trailers and newer forklifts. However, management has – more... changed and changed and changed. Since I started back in 2005 I have seen the decline in the hiring competent and skilled dock operations management. They hire and continually hire college kids who know nothing about the freight business or the trucking industry. This is a disasters combination, lack of knowledge and skills. If Con-Way does not do something about this, within 3 to 6 years the doors will close on Con-Way. Customers and drivers are the backbone to LTL carriers, without drivers, Con-Way will fold. – less

Dock Worker(Tem-hire) (Former Employee), Aurora, ILAugust 7, 2014
Pros: great environment.
Cons: job ended after two days classroom work and 1 hour on dock next day.
They lied and told the agency I worked for that I was not productive and all I was doing was following regular employees around on forklift learning dock procedures. A lot of con is what I think they have with them besides all the damage claims I saw.

Accounting (Current Employee), Joplin, MOJuly 30, 2014
Pros: very ethical and committed to continual improvement within truckload.
Cons: advancement opportunities are limited.
Education is under valued at Truckload and talent often leaves as a result. However the culture is shifting but I'm not sure it will advance in time to keep me either.

Billing Clerk (Former Employee), Rolla, MOJuly 30, 2014
A typical day at work included organizing freight bills and entering them into the system. I learned the organizational structure of this company and it was pleasant to work for such an organized friendly crew of employees.

The hardest part of the job would have been often having to work and hour or two later than orginally intended.

Overall a great – more... company with a highly organized friendly supervisor. – less

no sense of teamwork or training
dock worker (Former Employee), san antonioJuly 14, 2014
Pros: good starting pay
Cons: no teamwork or leadership
The supposed training they gave me was telling me alright this is what we do now go do it. Then other workers who I thought were helping me train by teaching me the ropes were actually taking credit for my scans/motor moves, so their numbers looked good while mine looked like i was doing nothing all night. This led to me being written up for performance – more... after just 2 weeks on the dock, still in my probation period. – less

Outstanding trucking company
Truck Driver (Former Employee), Joplin, MOJuly 10, 2014
Pros: late model trucks, expertly maintained equipment, steady freight and miles
Cons: being away from home, slightly lower than average per mile pay
Con-Way Truckload is one of the few large trucking companies that actually cares about their drivers and treats them with respect. Any issues that ever arose were handled swiftly and to my satisfaction. They pay slightly less than some companies, but the other benefits they offer (pet, rider policy, home time, etc.) more than make up for that. They – more... always got me home within 7 days of requesting time off, was allowed to drive the truck home, and could take as many consecutive days off as you earned. They run you as hard as you want and I was able to average 2,200 miles a week with some weeks hitting as high as 4,000 miles. – less
