Classic Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Refreshing Recruitment Classic Consulting delivers industry-leading levels of service to clients and candidates.

A former employee mentioned in a review, "I worked at Classic Consulting full-time. Too much to write, Please do yourself a favour and steer clear, all you have to do is find out how many staff they have been through. Long standing staff have left due to ill-treatment to put it nicely, All these reviews are untrue as there aren't that many staff who work there."

Current Employee - Class A Local Driver says

"I have been working at Red Classic full-time for more than a year Cons: extremely low pay, extremely low miles. Big brother Bendix systems not calibrated properly (way to sensitive) leading to various "conversations" in the office (lol). Long wait times at customers and they never pay all of your wait time even though its agreed to in official company pay policy. Ive seen 100% turnover with my own eyes since i started working here."

Current Employee - Class A Truck Driver says

"I have been working at Red Classic full-time for more than 5 years Cons: Just another low baller job"

Current Employee - Procurement says

"I have been working at Red Classic full-time for more than a year Cons: BIG ISSUE. Employees sit like you are in high school chemistry, side by side, close in a row. You have NO social distancing here. An employee will sit 4 feet on either side of you in a row and behind you. Then there is a 2 ft. barrier in front of you with the same on the other side. Very dangerous in the current situation."

Former Employee - OTR Truck Driver says

"I worked at Red Classic full-time for less than a year Cons: Everything you sit more than you drive and don’t get paid for it. They say $1100-$1500 a week I made more for orientation ($560) than I did driving"

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I have been working at Red Classic full-time for more than 3 years Cons: Not worthing working for ever"

Current Employee - Broker says

"I have been working at Red Classic full-time for more than a year Cons: All of it was bad"

Former Employee - Planner says

"I worked at Red Classic full-time for more than a year Cons: This was just a weird place to work. Everything seemed SO secretive. All day long people are going in and out of managers offices, unscheduled meetings. It was just WEIRD. I've never been at a place where this goes on. Almost cult like. Very unorganized, and a long way before there will be any order. I question the ability of a lot of people that have manager or above in their title."

Former Employee - Corporate says

"I worked at Red Classic full-time for more than 5 years Cons: There are a ton so sit back and enjoy -absolutely no communication between departments or even between executive management and employees. They said for years they were trying to fix this yet every year it never happens. -execs do not care about their employees at all, they will screw you over at a moments notice if it benefits their pockets. Also execs never talk to employees on the floor Even though you see them walking around many times a day. I guess they are all too full from their free lunches they get almost everyday in their meetings. This money could be spent elsewhere to benefit employees. -only way to advance in this company is you have to have been here the longest. They do not promote based on credentials rather only by length of employment at the company -when you come to interview look at how miserable everyone actually is and wonder if you want that to be your life? -might be some of the worst management I’ve had ever been a part of -management are also hypocrites, they have rules for employees to follow yet do not follow these rules themselves -the brokerage department will not last more than 2-5 yrs the way it is being run. -company is more looking to go back to just be assets only but can’t keep drivers because of the bad management, pay, etc. -inexperienced sales staff leads to no freight which will lead to the downfall"

Former Employee - Driver says

"I worked at Red Classic full-time for more than 5 years Cons: Out of touch with reality."

Former Employee - Manager says

"I worked at Red Classic full-time for more than a year Cons: This is they type of place where you come for your first job out of school, get a few months experience, then more on to better company with better pay and compensation. This company has quite a few issues that make it an unattractive career choice. It is extremely management heavy. I have worked at places with too many managers, but at Red Classic I would say there is 1 manager for every 2 employees. There are even managers that don’t manage anything or anyone. This seems to have created an environment of non-transparency and extremely “clickish” groups with emphasis on narcissism, instead of creating one strong company. There are good managers at Red Classic, but they are few and far between. Red Classic does not care if an employee has a “out of the box” idea, because it was not the manager that came up with it. They do not value employees or their input or ideas. You are not treated as a professional. Also, the common business language you hear is “YoYo, What Up” and “Cool”, just to give you and idea of the level of sophistication at Red Classic. There is a lot of animosity towards the Parent company, Coke Consolidated. You constantly hear, “Consolidated does not know what they are doing!”. This is just a recipe for disaster."

Driver (Former Employee) says

"Ladies and gentlemen beware of red classic they won’t compensate you for anything. Coworkers will snitch on management sucks just don’t come you will be disappointed the only way you will get paid if you train and they don’t make that much Cons: Pay sucks"

CDL Class A Driver (Former Employee) says

"Don’t work here. It’s just a terrible place to work. The pay isn’t great the management is real bad. They don’t care do u as a person your just a number and they will use you."

Representative (Current Employee) says

"I would not trust the "leadership" in this outfit to run a bake sale or lemonade stand. They refuse more revenue and growth opportunities than they allow to happen. Cons: benefits are a joke"

Diesel Technician/Mechanic (Former Employee) says

"Maybe part time, but you work hard out in the sun and rain and don't get advances. Trucks are always in poor locations, with no help or backup. Pay is promised to go up but stays the same for everyone Cons: Pay, managment"

Local Truck Driver (Former Employee) says

"I will start by saying the pay is very low they would lie to your face saying you will make $1200-1400 a week but that’s false more like $500-600 a week and also they do not value their drivers they feel as if they can get rid of you and replace you easily. Yes home everyday but I repeat the pay is very low!!"

Driver (Former Employee) says

"I didn’t know how cut throat this company could be. No coaching or second chance with these folks. When something goes wrong the whole management team disappears"

Transport driver (Former Employee) says

"From their planning department that can’t seem to put together a completable run which results in loss of miles until it gets to the driver there is a complete and near total lack of communication, which in turn quickly becomes disorganization, in my nearly 21 years in the industry 16 as a driver I have never seen such a cavalier take on the day to day running of a company.. the one pro I thought at first was the relaxed atmosphere however it quickly became one of the biggest cons. What you don’t get paid for- You don’t get paid for actual miles, it’s to the nearest zip. You don’t get a loadout fee to cover the time it takes to do your pre trip and fuel, if you can even fuel at some of their locations the pumps are constantly not working. You don’t get a stop fee to cover your stops how ever you will be paid for down time waiting at said stops just not what they tell you you’ll get paid. They say their hourly wage is 21.00 for down time at stops but they do not pay you for the first half hour of every stop so if your at a stop for 2hrs they only pay you for an hour and a half, the math equals out to just shy of 16 per hour for the first 2 hrs and just about maxes out at 19 and change after 5 hours and trust me there are a lot of 5 hr waits on average I was not being paid for roughly 2.5 hrs a day at their stated 21.00 per hr that’s nearly a 1000 dollars a month. You don’t get paid for sitting in traffic or if your stuck in backed up traffic do to an accident and they won’t pay the tolls to avoid traffic. The benefits at face value seem good until you realize that when you need"

OTR Truck Driver (Current Employee) says

"Stay away unless you like being micro managed they want to control how fast you drive when you can take a shower or stop and eat or go to bed and they act like they are doing you a favor if you get 2400 miles for the week if you dont believe ride by yard in Charlotte and look at all the mty trucks they can't keep drivers in no body wants too work for a company that doesn't take care of there employees"

Driver (Former Employee) says

"I never felt like a piece of garbage until I worked here. The hiring ad must have been written by a snake oil salesman. When I went to school 2000 miles times .43 equals $860 That's a little ways from 1100 to 1400 dollars but wait we pay detention after a half hour which is usually caused by dispatch. You have a load planner that watches miles and dictates who gets good runs while sometimes you get 1600 miles. Most dispatchers are nice just don't have a clue on trucking. You work for coke but get treated like you have the plague when you show up to pick up or drop. They want you to think on your own until you do and that's wrong. This is onlycompany that must make money off bobtailing or pulling empty trailers around must be tax write off for coke idk. In summary if you like no pay and young punks running dispatch and load planning and lead driver that has 10 weeks vacation this is place for you. I almost forgot mandatory 6 days that show up at every holiday good luck with spending time with family on holidays. Cons: Not enough room here"

Inside Sales/ Brokerage (Former Employee) says

"So I had the phone interview which went well. For the inside sales position. Then I was invited for the on site interview. All of the interviewers are Caucasian males and there is something that is disingenuous about the Vice President which interviews you second. Your supposed to be interviewed by 4 people two at a time during the onsite interview. The last interview is with the VP and some other guy. The VP doesn’t really try to get to know you and doesn’t seem down to earth. Anyway after 3 emails from HR prolonging the process about them still interviewing I was finally sent an email saying I was not selected which was fine. The pay is poor for the job description and the environment seemed liked they had a “type” they like to hire. I ended up getting a position paying $10k more per year than what they offer. I also read a review on Glassdoor that they have delayed commission checks and that review was as recent as a few months ago. So apply at your own risk! Cons: Everything else"

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) says

"The job position postings and actual job duties aren't the same. It is very misleading. No one informs you or trains you properly, just thrown into positions."

Diesel Mechanic {Former Employee} (Former Employee) says

"Terrible ran shop from top to bottom! Very sloppy ! No respect for employees! You are absolutely disposable! No job security! Pay is horrible! Management has no clue how to run the business! Increase in pay is far from the truth . They get rid of employees before you have the opportunity to advance. This shop is a revolving door for Tech's ! I've seen 7 people come and go while working here in a year time. You'll work on company trucks as well as the owner operator while they making delivery to the dock engine hot with no more money to you. Cons: Horrible Management, No job security, Terrible pay, Holidays work"

OTR Driver (Former Employee) says

"23 years of safe driving and I have never been treated so poorly, my first trip out was my last, was out 9 days and had to fight to get home, 5 of us otr started in March 2020, all quit by May. They have orientation every week, drivers quit as fast as they can hire them, otr dispatch is in Arkansas so you never meet them, on the weekend you’re done till Monday when they come in Cons: Wail time not being paid, low miles"

Local Truck Driver (Former Employee) says

"The so called "driver manager" they have doesn't manage anything but the bendix camera in the trucks. And it's pretty sad when the so called driver manager walks right past his driver's and doesn't say a word to anyone. Upper management lies so much they can't look you in the eye or even speak to you. To inconsistent pay and You will be shorted everyday 20 to 40 miles because they pay zip code to zip code. They send your dispatch email out Every day before your shift but it changes to lower miles on the regular. There's no system in place for raises for any driver to get. A lot of the older drivers said they've gotten raises but the miles have went down and they've been making the same money for the last 8 yrs."

Truck Driver Class A (Former Employee) says

"No concern what so ever about employees and their life. Focused only on profit and bottom line. Hardworking employees were never compensated. Not a matter of how hard you worked but who you knew. Horrible good old boy mentality"

Logistics Business Development (Current Employee) says

"Don't do it. Totally not what they make it out to be. High turnover for a manager that has been there only 10 months, that must tell you something! Picks favorites and those favorites become his eyes when they are just as guilty. Sad. Cons: Where do i start?"

Customer Service (Former Employee) says

"Horrible no work like balance. They don’t care about their employees. High turnover rate. Very stressful environment and for the work you do, pay is mediocre"

OTR Driver (Current Employee) says

"Did they just start OTR"

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) says

"I enjoyed my job. It’s the people in management that created an issue. They abuse the people that work the hardest for the company and reward the people who slide by."

Truck Driver (Current Employee) says

"It's an easy job no touch. Dispatch makes it very stressful, they give your loads away to favorites them make you run around plants to look for home loads.You have to wait forever for them to answer phones, and then forever to make decisions. Some of them are very rude. Money and miles not what they say. Corporate does NOT care about the drivers. There are better jobs that pay a living wage out there. STAY AWAY!!!"
