Another Chemical Tank Company
driver (Former Employee), houstonApril 8, 2014
Pros: it is a job.
Cons: numerous
Probably need to think twice about working with this bunch. At the Houston terminal there is constant turnover in the dispatch and management and it makes it hard for a driver.

Those who drive on percentage never get to see the invoice to make sure that they are not being scammed.

Equipment has become very poor.

It is a job and a living can be made – more... but there are better choices out there for a driver. I would stay away. – less

driver (Current Employee), texasMarch 21, 2014
Pros: new trucks
Cons: job security
I wanted this to be my last job. Since employed, I've noticed you have to hustle to make money or justify the fact you're hauling a bomb. You can make 50k+ daytime, weekends off at any good freight company!! The terminal management is good but they aren't paid enough to care. Their decisions are never uniform and they pass the problem on to the next – more... driver. HR is in Oklahoma and there are terminals everywhere, so what you have is the wild west. You have drivers being sent home early, while others work there days off. Some employees are hired straight to day shift. Others are told to wait. The employee of choice is a retired veteran. They have money coming in and love to work slow and go home early. The average employee has to hustle. Make a mistake and your fired though. Unless you have extra income and can work slow, working at Groendyke is like walking on egg shells. – less

Great Pay and Benefits Clean Equipment
Fuel Transporter (Former Employee), Blue Mound, TXMarch 2, 2014
Pros: great benefits, great pay
Cons: long hours
Management was Very Professional

Hardest part of the job was waiting 2 to 3 hours for a truck to come so you can start your job.

I learned how to slow down and take my time so I wont mess up on the job.

Good People at most of the Terminals
Driver (Former Employee), ColoradoNovember 19, 2013
Pros: steady work
Cons: low pay
Steady work because of the petroleum business, always have loads. However the rate of pay is terrible and below any of their competitors. For example, loads in a metro area pay anywhere form $10 to $30 less than other carriers, safety bonus at Groendyke is averaging $200 for a quarter, another carrier I work for now in the same city pays on average – more... $1600 for the quarter, what does that tell you? – less

Top Notch Company for the most part
Class A Chemical Tanker (Former Employee), Bensalem, PA.July 5, 2013
Pros: great money, good working conditions, and good terminal managers
Cons: easy to get fired for even a minor issue
Groendyke is a great company, but some of the corporate people leave a little bit to be desired.

The money is great. On a bad week, you can make over $1,000. On a good week, you can make $1,300 or more.

Safety is a core value at Groendyke. They don't just talk about it; they actually walk the walk, as far as safety is concerned. The equipment is pretty – more... good, but you might find a few trucks that are about to be switched out.

The terminal managers in Bensalem, PA. and Chicago are good guys. They will back you up when you need it, and will get you home when they promise to. The Corporate people in Enid Ok are pretty nice, but the safety department is a little over-reactive, if anything happens.

You can make very good money working here, while doing easy work, but keep in mind that your first violation of any company policy, could very likely be your last.

Even though I was terminated for what I feel was a less than deserving policy violation, I have nothing bad to say about the company as a whole. Just keep an eye out for the safety department, they have absolute zero tolerance for most things. – less

Job takes away from most home life and activities as schedules continually change on a day to day basis. Very challenging to plan any activity. Benefits are better than most trucking companies.

Nice fast paced environment
Petroleum Dispatcher (Former Employee), Wichita, KSJanuary 28, 2013
Pros: good fast pace
Cons: needed more family time at that time
Loved my job, my drivers and the customers. Has good benefits and perks. At the time my family was growing, with my kids getting married and such. I needed to be able to be more family oriented. So I decieded to change jobs.
Co workers were good, the hardest part at the time was having to miss my daughters wedding because there weren't enough people – more... to cover on short notice. The most enjoyable part of the job....the people and customers. – less

Don't waste your life at Groendyke
Dispatcher Technology and System Trailer Analyst (Former Employee), Enid, OKJune 22, 2012
Pros: pay
Cons: management
Spent over a year at Corporate in Enid as a Technology Coordinator and System Trailer Analyst. I was written up for missing one day the whole time I was there and was fired for giving an ex-employee someones email address. There was so much backstabbing going on that there were at least 4 people fired in a months time. Big egos abounded. I enjoyed the – more... company of many of the people who worked there, but the management seemed especially vindictive. – less
