Good company to learn how to drive T&Ts
Driver (Former Employee) –  Los angelesJuly 28, 2015
The company was good when I started good overtime. The kaiser health insurance is expensive, 790 a month so there goes a big chunk of your check. The union fee is 45 which is a rip off cause they dont do anything for the drivers but take your money. If you try to speak out at the safety meeting you will probably get suspended or kick out of the meeting. There is a set start time but your truck is usually late. Dispatch does not have a clue of what they are doing and most of the time they are training new dispatchers. Guys that have been there 20 years earn 20.20 an hour and guys that have been there 20 days earn 20.20 an hour. They offer no incentive but they do have a quarterly bonus and that goes based on the hours you work so if you milk it, you get more on your check and on your bonus and noone will tell you anything. They are pretty good when it comes to giving you some personal time off. Some guys leave for months at a time so thats a good thing if you like to travel. Work is handed out by seniority. If you have low seniority you will be called at any time of day or night by dispatch and they will tell you to stay home. Some guys were taking 100 bucks for two weeks. The senior drivers will tell you that they get a lot of work cause they put in 13 hours a day while the new guys are sitting home cause there was no work for them.
Pros
No one will find out if you made a new dent or scratch on the truck
Cons
Expensive health ins. And union sucks

great company, family oriented
current driver (Current Employee) –  LAJuly 26, 2015
when i heard someone wrote that last comment, i was very upset. that guy is not a former driver, he's current driver and some people just want to bring everything down. so dont listen to him. i've been a driver for this company for over 15 years. and this company has been very good to its employees. the current ownership goes to the driver meetings to meet with us and listens to us. the owner has helped individuals in the past. that says they value us and i appreciate that. if you want to work for a family oriented company that values you then you want to work for this company.

It's a Job
Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAJuly 5, 2012
Deliver gasoline. I learn how to drive a tanker, its fun and stress full. Company Management changes the rules every month. It is not a good place to work for. Management in the refineries will change the rules to. Hardest part of your job was that they were always trying to punish you for the most stupid reason so you will not get your bonus even you have been doing a great job. The most enjoyable part of the jobs was when they would just let you do your job.
Pros
tanker experience
Cons
management rules changes every month
