Suggestions for improvement

  • Keep workplaces heated comfortably. Listen for safety concerns. Pay more attention to sexist dress code policies. Work harder on having a more accepting and inclusive work space that everyone feels comfortable in.

What I like about the company

Their billing department, where I started, has a wonderful manager. She's tough, but fair and will protect any employee who shows up and works hard. She encourages ideas and pushes people to pursue their dreams. When possible, she even will give the means. The schedule in that department is exceedingly flexible and the overtime pay is amazing.

What I dislike about the company

There are sexist dress code policies in place and a lot of the men treat women very, very differently. Even after demonstrating how capable I am, I am talked down to because I'm female presenting. I have helped implement new procedures just to have the men in the company try to explain to me how they work even they they know I implemented it. The buildings are not always taken care of. They have buildings and trucking terminals across the country, but if it's not main location, how they look or function doesn't matter. You can only move up so far, but that's an issue in any company. Overtime is practically mandatory in most departments. Which isn't awful, but the holidays get hit the worst with overtime.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would focus on a cultural that looks out for employees work and work/life balance more. Little to no benefits and incentives are providing which is not good for company moral.

What I like about the company

I have had the opportunity to grow within the company and given regular raises.

What I dislike about the company

Management often does not look out for their employees. Work/ life balance is not a priority and could be improved on.

Support from management

Good support

Teamwork

5 stars

Internal Communication

Overall excellent internal communication.

Gender Equality

Obviously more females in the corporate office then in the actual terminals, however overall I would say if qualified, they are hired.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Never seen an issue, no problems, fully supportive of the employees.

Career Development

Great place to improve a resume...

Overall compensation for your work

Talented people get promotions constantly. They hire inside more then from the outside, from what I can see, unless it is a new opening in an area.

Office / Work Environment

Good environment, and the company upgrades specific needs every 5-10 years.

Environmental Friendliness

Very green friendly, company. They have LED lights on docks, that go on/off from motion sensors, etc.

Work-Life Balance

Everyday is a long day

Company Image

Company history has been rocky, with dramatic changes in the industry, the company has adapted and made dramatic changes to stay profitable. Sometimes this will create a backlash that creates a bad image, but the company is constantly making changes for the better.

Job Security

Most employees are lifers.

Handicapped Accessibility

As to be expected, accommodate if required.

Workplace Safety

Internal audit team audits every location, with a fine tooth comb, very hard to pass these audits.

Challenging Work

No worries here, plenty of daily challenges, however this is pretty standard for logistics, often think outside the box for positive results.

Inclusive / Diverse

No problems, everyone from every walk of life hired here.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Direct deposit needed, and better PTO for employees.

What I like about the company

You do the job, they leave you alone.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would not make any improvements at this time. I truly am 110% thrilled with the workplace, atmosphere, job, fellow employee's, etc.

What I like about the company

ACT is very much a family environment. I have never worked for a company that truly cares about their employees, and their work experience. The pay, work space, atmosphere, co-workers, management is all great! Having come from a huge company to a smaller company, I was shocked at how different it truly was!

What I dislike about the company

I truly do not have anything that I disapprove of.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The buildings are old and many fear about mold issues later on in life. Benefits and paid time off need to be reviewed.

What I like about the company

There is a lot of team work that goes on here. When I do get overwhelmed, like everyone can at a job, I rely on my coworkers to always cheer me up and keep me moving.

What I dislike about the company

Not enough time off given for long term employees. Benefits aren't the best. Would be nice to get some "that a boy/girl" types of comments every once in a while as well.
