A family owned trucking company with an awesome culture
HR Manager (Current Employee) – Buckeye, AZ – November 7, 2016
Duncan and Son Lines is a great company! Though the work is very fast paced (regardless of the area you are in), the culture is amazing! I had previously worked for two Fortune 100 companies with much bigger budgets and staff than we have here but didn't see anywhere near the care and commitment to the employees like I've seen at Duncan. Employees are family... not just a number. They are some of the best people I've ever worked with. There are several employee who have been with the company for more than 10 years which tells you they are doing something right.
For the most part, the management staff does a good job of communicating expectations, investing in employee growth, and recognizing positive performance. They had been paying a little below market value in previous years but are quickly closing the gap. They offer paid vacations and holidays after 90 days along with matching 401k and a wide variety of other benefits. They also do a lot of cookouts, ball games, onsite events, parties, and "random acts of fun" which help to keep morale high.
The one downside is the cost of their medical insurance. That said, it's still less expensive than going out to the marketplace exchange in many cases... especially for those individuals with children and families.
