Reviews

Company Culture

Culture was not collaborative, or built with trust in upper management

Support from management

Culture was not collaborative, or built with trust in upper management

Internal Communication

Communication was poor, most was handed down through many levels and heard/interpreted differently in different departments

Gender Equality

Women were treated as well as men, no one was treated great, but it wasn't based on gender

Career Development

Career opportunities are there for those in the right 'cliques' or with the right friends at the next level

Overall compensation for your work

My personal compensation was not an issue. Other areas may be below market

Office / Work Environment

The offices are state of the art and have every convenience

Environmental Friendliness

There are reasonable efforts made to be aware of the environment

Work-Life Balance

The operations department regularly called mandatory overtime and frequently denied requests for time off

Job Security

Layoffs occur every year. No one feels stable

Handicapped Accessibility

Excellent facilities

Workplace Safety

The corporate office was a safe environment

Challenging Work

Recruiting for transportation work is not easy, but lots of people want good jobs, so the work was not terribly difficult

Suggestions for improvement

  • Emphasize fairness, equality, performance based on standards, rather than who your friends are.

What I like about the company

The facilities are excellent and the location is wonderful. Many departments strive to do the right thing for their employees.

What I dislike about the company

The overall leadership should set the example by emphasizing honesty, integrity, respect. Employees should be developed with training opportunities, succession planning, and proper performance reviews.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Invest in long-term solutions, not just quick hits that don't do anything to fix things in the long run. Also, while making money is extremely important, it's worth taking a little more of a hit up front to better retain drivers (such as buying new mattresses for the trucks, ensuring home times, and installing new washers and dryers in the terminals). It may hurt to spend money, but we'll save so much more when drivers are happy to work with us and stay with the company longer than 6 months.

What I like about the company

My direct coworkers really are a family- we support and care about each other. It's also nice to have an onsite gym and cafeteria to buy snacks. Also, because there are many challenges at USX, it provides a great learning environment (for both office and driver), that many early-career individuals would not easily find elsewhere.

What I dislike about the company

USX should become more strategic within decision-making, and move away from such intense corporate politics. Both greatly hinder the company culture and ability to be successful as a company.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would give more home time to drivers with families. I would give out sign on bonuses in full instead of quarterly. I would also extend the work mile radius for the company if employee had their own reliable transportation to the terminal.

What I like about the company

Met a lot of great people and made a lot of good connections. Awesome pay!

What I dislike about the company

Dispatch rushing driver to get back on the road after 34 hr restart. Dispatch giving wrong times for drop off.
