AZ Driver (Former Employee), Windsor, ON – May 26, 2014
Cons: long hours
Being on the road was enjoyable but the hours can get too you. Management and co-workers will all good to work with and for. I learned a lot on the road with all kinds of suppliers and border crossing. The hours just seemed to long. Seen a lot on the road and started too worry about my safety, that is why I got off the road and went to the factory.
very laid back and cool place to work....very fun!
Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Georgetown, KY – May 27, 2014
Pros: work on your time, laid back, friendly people.
Cons: new management with an attitude towards certain individual..
transfreight is cool and i really mean that. The place has some down home people their that are straight shooters and friendly. You're pretty much your own boss throughout the day because the job is simple. the only time you'll see management is when freight comes up missing or not there. But, on the other hand no job is perfect!...be it a small thing – more... or major, my gripe was with new boss who had some ways that rubbed everybody the wrong way and people started leaving such as myself. Overall though, good place to start. You can't go wrong with an atmosphere like transfreight has. – less

forklift (Former Employee), georgetown ky – January 30, 2012
Pros: fast pace, decent pay
Cons: no leadership
It was a fast paced cross dock for Toyota, time was everything and so was atention to detail. The lack of leadership from the teamleaders made it very hard to keep the moral up. Despite that it was very challenging and always changing. not a bad job but my family grew so my income had to grow also
