Not to much to say about how good of a place to work at.
Truck Driver (Current Employee), Greensboro, NC – February 24, 2014
Pros: good equipment.
Cons: bad communication, over worked, and under paid. to many people in management, and not enough in the field.
It would probably be a good place to work, if they didn't have so many messed up hours. The shifts are very difficult to keep yourself on a normal schedule. And It can be very confusing and frustrating at times due to not being able to get allocation for the loads that are dispatched. Also the rates are very low and don’t pay that well for what you – more... do. – less
who cares (Former Employee), north carolina – November 1, 2013
Pros: their checks dont bounce
Cons: terrible place to work - middle management does not control their terminal managers
The upper management does not care about its employees, they allow the middle management to run each facility any way they wish. You never know if you have a job from one day to the next since the middle managements only input is who they wish to fire today. with have 11500 as an employee number and with starting at 100 a few years ago, tells you something – more... about how they feel about employees. their only concern is product in the ground not employees, safety, family life or anything else. – less
Transport driver (Former Employee), Charlotte, NC – August 21, 2013
I was a driver and driver trainer at Eagle. The load pay rates are over ten years old with no increase in sight. Turn over is over 50% company wide. They will fire a man for no reason at all. People constantly quit over inferior pay. Morale is low. Management talks to you like you are a second class citizen. It is possible on many occasions to work – more... a twelve hour shift and only make $135 dollars. Dispatch plays favortism to certain drivers with no regard for hard work and dedication. Two terminal managers in a years time. No stability. Dispatch is a revolving door as well. You don't get lunch breaks. You must as policy work all holidays including Christmas, and only given $75 extra for doing it. All new hires must work both Saturday and Sunday for one year before getting one weekend day off. Nobody including senior men get Monday thru Friday. If you have to eat it is a job, but averaging $10 to $15 dollars an hour for hauling gas isn't worth it. For instance a $30 load may take you three hours to do it. They promise you big money but it isn't there! Learn from my mistake stay away from Eagle and gas hauling period. They're all the same! – less
Driver (Current Employee), Port Everglades, FL – October 17, 2012
Pros: pay roll is accurate and on time with pay.
Cons: a child nursery atmosphere like suspensions and getting sent home.
Good points are you get paid on time and you can get expierence hauling fuel. Bad points are office help (disbatchers) feel that they need to make the same amount of money as the drivers (driver envy.) Moral is low a few drivers get the gravy work not by merit or senoirity while the majority get the shaft. Basic attitude (your replacable and do not – more... let the door hit you on your behind !) Senoir drivers are quiting as well. As the economy improves driver turn over rate is increasing. It,s like a pair of work boots, your used and thrown away when you are no longer needed. – less
