Pros: you work when you want to work
Cons: nepotism in the office, everyone is related to one another need more diversity. dms and planners too cozy with some drivers
Comtrak could be a great company in Ontario/Brea if it wasn't for their management, it's riddled with nepotism; their dispatchers are all related to one another ( ant, nephews, in laws, friends, high school buddy, former co worker from former corrupt Companies such as CIA, American Pacific, Pacer) Upper Tenessee management knows but turns a blind eye. – more... Hub group's/ comtraks website under employment opportunities cites several requirements for Driver Managers ( including a bachelors as an example, but some of these dispatchers didn't even finish high school --some sporting visible tattoos, blasting narco music --- I mean you read the job requirements on the website and it's a total misnomer how they landed such a job in the first place). There is a surmountable lack of professionalism and etiquette that could be read through various Qualcomm mcp200 messages from dispatchers- if one day management would care to review and act to correct ( but they wont because they are all best buddies on Facebook and other Social Media) Needless to say,there is a vast amount of preferism among 23347, 23300 and lower numbered units who manage to land very- very easy loads.
I was never oppose to driving to porterville, Visalia, shafter, otay, but the problem is that they would have you wait despite the constant Qualcomm messages. Despite the lease factor, the constant un-answering of phone calls, the electronic logs, maintenance, and the constant bickering back and forth requesting of loads; Comtrak Tennessee could very easily make a positive change by simply introducing more diversity to its operations department ( BREA/ONTARIO office) and have a more independent non biased way or person who could vet pontential employees in the future.
Also, having 2 people of different races as tokens in the office does not count as diversity. – less
