    I worked at Linfox full-time

    Pros

    Spent 20 years working in managerial position Looked after managing all the trucks parts services and deliveries

    Cons

    The downside of working for Linfox was that they were so far behind with technology that we were still using whiteboards and writing everything down by hand compare to other companies I work for working with phone screens and computers

    I worked at Linfox (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You will find a handful of decent and respectful people - not many

    Cons

    *Disgraceful management skill within Truck Driver job allocating section NDC & CDC

    *Extremely poor communication

    *Not very thorough training prior to letting you out on the job

    *Double standards - where some drivers are treated with respect and others are not. Particularly if you came from an agency

    *Spoken to in a rude and unprofessional manner, particularly by Mel & Matt at NDC

    *Some shift allocater's have very little empathy when it comes to understanding or appreciating the time required when unloading at Coles - especially when you have numerous trucks attempting to do so

    *Racism is prevalent, but ignored

    *Not a very happy environment between management and staff - only a chosen few are spoken to with any respect

    Advice to Management

    Clean up your act with regards to improving communication between shift allocators and drivers.
    Improve the unprofessional and rude manner in which shift allocators speak to drivers
    Practice what you preach - "LIFT" (Loyalty - Integrity - Fairness - Trust) values are a complete joke if they are NOT put into practice, particularly Integrity, Fairness and Trust

    I worked at Linfox full-time

    Pros

    Nothing to speak of.

    Cons

    Expectations of 12+ hour days, only salaried for 7.6. The expectation that salaried staff need to make up shortfalls in operational staffing. A culture of incompetence. KPIs not based in reality; completely un- achievable.

    Advice to Management

    Management need to be able to accept the fact that people cannot control the weather. State level management and client services would do well to have a basic understanding of geography; they could also learn a thing or two about space and time considerations. Also should realise an employee cannot physically move an entire city to cut their overtime...
