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

Fast pace environment.
Truck Driver/Sales Representative (Former Employee), Windsor ONJuly 8, 2013
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.

Challenging Industry
Assistant Service Center Manager (Former Employee), Santa Fe Springs, CAJuly 17, 2014
Con-way was a good company to work for - one which provided opportunities for advancement. The work-life balance was challenged at times given the demands of the job, as well as the industry.

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

Not the best place to work unles you enjoy a negative atmosphere
Sr. Data Entry Clerk (Former Employee), North Richland Hills, TxJune 28, 2014
Pros: fun parties, activities
Cons: low work morale, awful training, not a team oriented atmosphere
The training was awful, I sat beside a girl for 3 days then she moved to a whole different dept, so I was thrown to the sharks. One of the ladies on my team was a drama queen, If you put on lotion she would put on show by coughing up a lung, she was under the impression someone made her the boss. She complained about EVERYTHING and I couldn't continue – more... to work in such a negative, unfulfilling workplace. – less

worst place to work
driver (Current Employee), PennsylvaniaJune 17, 2014
Pros: nothing!
Cons: dock worker 90% of the time not going to drive
This place starts you at a great rate but you are ether working 14+hours a day or not working at all I have worked here for 2 years and 90% of my time has been on a forklift. Through the winter don't count on working because you won't. The benefits are horrible and there management is the same you are on what they call a flex board you are on call from – more... 4 pm to 4 am or 4 am to 4 pm Monday through Saturday they tell you that you have holidays off but you work them. This is the worst job I have ever worked in my life! 99% of new hires quit within 3 months just ask them in your interview.......looking for another job now that's why I'm on this site... – less

Downhill
Freight Operations Supervisor (Current Employee), OHJune 13, 2014
Pros: steady paycheck
Cons: long hours, no creativity, no voice.
CCX the precursor to Con-way was a great place to learn and grow. However, since the branding change and growth of the company front line supervisors have no voice and are constantly forced to accept new programs that have no basis and achieve no goals.
