Butler really treats its trainees like a part of the Butler family. 5 stars from me compared to other companies who want to put you on a bus and even some that wants you to pay for your own room and food to attend orientation. There safety training is tops in the industry. Safety is most important in my eyes so for the Butler staff to go above and beyond stressing the safety aspects of the industry is right up my alley and what I was looking for. Driver trainers are excellent too.

Overall Butler is a good company to work for. Pay could be better, but they have good equipment and do there best to keep you running. Yes there are times that you may have to sit and wait for a load, but on average, I always had a load within an hour or so.

Safety Mgr harasses the drivers especially those with cameras. Poorly managed. Employees are compensated decently, but no 401K and terrible insurance package. Company gets load detention, but will not pay drivers for detention. Extremely hostel HR/Payroll person.
Give those a chance that have a previous questionable record
Micromanaging of drivers by safety and poor management.

Driver, dispatcher (Former Employee) – kcks – April 12, 2017
Worked for them numerous times. You do your job and be professional. They will treat you the same. Act like a dumba#s. Well you get the picture. They try to accomodate hometime. This is a business. If you need that much hometime work at Mcdonalds. If the wheels aint spinning then the bills dont get paid..
Emergency Medical Technician (Former Employee) – Gaithersburg, MD – July 12, 2016
complete lack of respect for employees from management. Frequent equipment failures. Orientation paints a picture of what they hope the company is but when you get into the field there is a complete disconnect between their fantasy dreams and how it is ran in reality. Management has been known to mess around with employees pay checks and even with hold pay.
Dispatcher (Current Employee) – Kansas City, KS – June 23, 2016
My manager here is the most personable man you can ask for. They truly have an open door policy and will talk to you about any concerns that you have. If you don't see eye to eye they want to know what would make you happy and come up with some kind of compromise. Their salary is above expected and they offer great benefits. Couldn't ask for a better company to work for.
Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – February 19, 2016
I scraped a fix object on side of my bumper. Less then $300 to replace. I was willing to except full responsibility in paying for it. Safety refuse and report it on my DAC report as a preventable incident(That's on my DAC for 10yrs). Someone busted my window while I was asleep in my truck. Safety report it on my DAC as a nonpeventable. I got stuck in my yard, had to get it towed 10ft. They billed me and it was reported on my DAC as a preventable incident. They will not warn or talk to you of what's going to be reported on your DAC until it's too late and your fired.
Safety personnel will have no mercy in reporting everything on your DAC report.

Company has only 10 wheelers. And they don't have snow chains for them. (They say they're too expensive.) No personal advances are allowed. Their phones ring non stop over orientation pay. And they mail your pay checks to your house.
OTR Tractor Trailer Driver (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – January 10, 2015
dispatchers don't care about the drivers nor understand what it takes to effectively transport freight. Neputism runs high here. If you're not on their favorites list you will not get consistent miles, raises, bonuses or pay. Safety personnel frames drivers and pin incidents on them to cover their rear-ends. They will have you switch loads with a driver to get a driver home time completely ignoring your desire to be off and home. Trucks are substandard and are always in the shop with a mechanical issue to be new equipment. All members of personnel are disrespectful to their drivers and also take them for granted.
they will give you a job
they lie on you, unwanted solicitation, try to blackball you
