This company has been one of the worst companies I've worked with. Poorly managed, drivers dropping like flies, pay cuts, alot of old equipment. It has potential, but it won't be any time soon that they turn this one around.
Pros
Do whatever you want at Central Freight
Cons
Pay, equipment, incompetent inbreds running the place

Working there was fine, it isn't the job, however they employ people who do whatever they want with no repercussions, upper management is a joke, would not recommend working here to anyone.

Not worth any Owner Operator’s time. Just a worthless company to work for. Low pay, bad communication, the company drivers take loads from O/O’s that they were assigned. Stay away from this place.

Management in the shop is great, shop manager and maintenance manager both get things done and are tough when they need to be. We started with MANY units down and our team was able to crack down, work together, and put a plan together to get equipment back in service. At times it seems like higher management is never pleased with the progress made. They don’t credit our team in the slightest. Our mechanics and shop management work hard but it continues to go unnoticed.This job is not easy. It is a job for those who have a desire to work and can handle constructive criticism well. However, the environment and the people make it an enjoyable work place.
Pros
Great friendships and skills

I was on a HEAVY route that apparently no other driver wanted..the plus side of having a route you know what your start time is and you know what areas you will be doing P&D. Senior drivers swear they own the newer trucks, good luck finding a decent truck or a truck at all..no radios in any of them..OLD trailers, un patched holes in trailer floors..not enough pallet jacks to offload your freight..lift gate is dangerously small make it difficult to get a pallet on without hanging halfway off. No direct deposit!!! And bi weekly pay..with all of this being said, I worked through all the headaches up until the company cut the pay by nearly 3.00 and blamed it on covid...I went out with a trailer full of deliveries and returned at the end of my shift with almost the same amount of picked up freight...covid didn't effect that route!!
Pros
A route if you get one
Cons
Pay cut, equipment

Things have been rough; not going to lie. You'll read things on here that are probably true. But there's new management now and they are turning the ship around. Give it a chance.

It was nice working there for the 1st couple years, but then it really went downhill. Management is the worse and the folks in Waco, TX are no good either. They took a new direction and started treating LineHaul and company drivers bad. Even started giving contract drivers seniority over company drivers. Then they lay people off and turn around and put out an ad for workers and drivers. They deduct your pay while other companies are given bonuses out and hazard pay. They have favoritism throughout the company and if your on vacation/family leave, you will be left out of the loop and come back having your route taken away or demoted. It was great working the first 2 years, but the other 4, I don't know how I managed to stay. Their equipment is a joke, trailers look like scrap metal, holes in floors, doors rotted out and other drivers just take everyone else's assigned truck to do their pickups/deliveries and routes, leaving you sit in the yard with like 10 other drivers waiting for your truck cause it was taken or because they don't have enough trucks, trailers or gears. They built a new terminal and not even a mechanics bay so the mechanic can't do anything but change tires. So if your truck breaks down, you won't get it back for weeks or months. Central wouldn't be my first pick if I had to do it all over again
Pros
Nice fairly new terminal
Cons
The whole place, management

Unless this is your first mechanic job and you're just trying to get experience, do not work there. Horrible management. The Regional Manager will lie straight to your face and then blame you for having the wrong information. He will micromanage and is only out to make himself look good. Management will absolutely throw you under the bus when you did exactly what they asked you to do the way they asked, if somebody higher up the ladder didn't approve. The pay scale there is completely horrendous. People have been working there 20 yrs making less money than brands new mechanics that have 0 experience.
Pros
The mechanics
Cons
Management, low pay.

Employees have literally went decades without a pay raise. They have no problem invoking pay cuts, though. The company only cares for upper management. Direct manager was great, above that....terrible. Money management is terrible, services constantly being turned off due to non-payment. I would not recommend this company to my worst enemy.
Pros
None.
Cons
Everything.
