Atlas Van Lines moving company
Professional Truck Driver Class (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – January 5, 2016
As a truck driver work days would start early, no matter how late you worked. Which is a pain because you need sleep to operate a rig, by law.
Management was easy to communicate with, they are very concerned about the safety of their employees.
They dont hover over your shoulder at all, they expect you to go out and get the job done.
The equipment is old but they keep them running.
Some co-workers are easy to work with. But other co-workers are very aggressive, and they enjoy to taking their problems out on others.
The hardest part of the job is not earning more than another driver, who dosen't drive because the company insurance wont cover them. My supervisor called me "GREEN", just because I was the young man, that was driven to take care of my family.
I didn't receive overtime until, I worked over 50 hours.
Also everyday 6 to 7 days a week your unloading, and loading your trailer, it is labor intensive.
I enjoyed the fact that I was a truck driver, and I had no supervision while on the road, they provide money for you to eat, pay for your rooms while out of town.
