Great Company, I love all the traveling and seeing new places. Stay at nice hotels every night and collect points for stays all for free. Also fly two to three times a week and collect fly miles for free. Awsome job.
Driver (Current Employee) – Cleveland,N.C. – May 3, 2013
I've been with att 8 1/2 yrs. The first week with my trainer i knew if i was going to drive for a living this is the job for me.l read two reviews of former drivers that trashed the company they sound like new hires that didnt stay long enough to learn the ropes. I tell new hires to stay for a year and learn the ropes and in that time they will learn how to make good money and love the job.Yes there has been layoffs,my first three yrs.here i was layed off two times. 5 1/2 months each i took that time to do things around the house ect. When they called i came back.Now i don't have to worry about layoffs .I've undeck trucks in weather from 44 below to 115 degrees its all good.This job has spoiled me.

This company is a joke! The orientation is a waste of time. The only time you learn anything is in the shop where you un-deck the trucks. They assign your home terminal away from the terminal closest to you so that they can hold your pay since they send your check to your home terminal...HELLO STUPID!!!!! They also charge you $550 for a set of tools they say you must have to perform the job and charge you the entire amount on your first check. And a week after I finally get my first check, they delay my second the same way!
The trainer I had was lazy and acted like I should know everything from day one. All he cared about was arranging the hotel room and where we were eating next. I had to remember what I learned in the 2 day shop time I had and figure out how to fill out the paperwork myself... USELESS!!!!!
Their so called union benefits is a rip off since you only get a retirement of $1100 after 20 years... OMG PLEASE!!!!!
There are other drive away companies out there where you can make some good money as a contractor, enough to save up your own retirement without someone telling you how to save it for you.
I HIGHLY recommend NO ONE ever work for Auto Truck Transport USA... EVER!!!!!

The job was great! It was all the sitting around that a person would do. You lose a day dispatching if not more and you lose a day traveling back to any of the terminals. Pay is really good for the industry. Full benefits at no cost. Union job. Just hard to get miles when you lose so much time
OTR Driver (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – June 12, 2013
You have a good benefits package with retirement after 4-5 years of service will freeze $1000/month. Hotels every night and always driving new equipment. Fly miles add up quickly and so do the hotel points.
Pay, benefits, hometime
Canada, airports and undecking trucks for picky dealers.
If you are looking for Low Income Company to drive for this is The One.
Professional CDL A Driver (Former Employee) – San Antonio Texas Terminal – September 19, 2012
You will be on training for 5 to 6 wweks performing very danger and hard job earning around $400 (top gross) weekly basis. If you survive financially you will be disapointed with a huge not paid downtime inside the company waiting for trucks and to be dispatch at the terminals as well as outside factors (cheapest flight to bring you back to terminals, waiting to undeck trucks, waiting for dealers sign off trucks and the list goes on). Good luck if you try to collect any money from pay roll for anything else them your very low miles. They fight with you. Its hard even to collect trip expenses. Be careful they love to (loose) big invoices and discount from you. This company is a joke and one of the highest turn over on the truck business.
very low income, danger and hard work job, bad management.....
Transportation Specialist (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – March 9, 2014
A dangerous working climate but training was complete. All new drivers were required to run with a trainer after the initial 2 week training period. This was excellent as everyone experienced what the real job world was like. Most of the drivers I went through the initial training period with did not like it. I believe this was due to the work load being very heavy and time off was scarce. Un-decking the trucks had to be performed by the numbers. A step missed could be disastrous. I enjoyed going to Canada especially to Nova Scotia & Ontario.

one day you driving or undecking trucks or you may be flying, learned to prepare trucks for inspection by replacing axles,reconnecting air hoses,basically some parts are disconnected for travel and driver has reconnect parts, hardest part is working in freezing cold or extreme heat but i been in every(and some not so major) city in US and Canada
OTR Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Kenosha, WI – September 2, 2012
Fast and easy, no home time though and alot of down time. Learned to cruse through international customs in the quickest time possible. the people were great. and the hardest part was undecking in the heat, cold, snow,and rain were fine though.
Over the road driver (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – June 4, 2014
Was a great job - lots of work loading saddles to place cabs on one after another. Wasn't very fond of having to catch a plane at the last minute and fly to another location. Had to make special arrangements for tools.
