Section VI: Career Development
Job and Performance Evaluation
Managers and employees are strongly encouraged to discuss job performance in real time, in order to meet, maintain, and ultimately exceed performance objectives throughout the year. A formal written performance evaluation will be conducted at the end of an employee's initial period of hire, known as the adjustment period. Additional formal performance evaluations are conducted to provide both supervisors and employees the opportunity to discuss job tasks, identify and correct weaknesses, encourage and recognize strengths, and to discuss positive, purposeful approaches for meeting goals.
Performance evaluations are scheduled approximately every 12 months, to coincide with the date of the employee’s initial review. Merit based pay adjustments may be awarded at such time, but are not exclusively tied to the performance evaluation.
Xpress Cargo encourages employees to identify friends or acquaintances who are interested in employment opportunities and refer qualified outside applicants for posted jobs. Employees should obtain permission from the individual before making a referral, and make no commitments or oral promises of employment.
If applicable, employees should submit the referral's resume to the Human Resources Department for an open position.
