Management Not Good!
Driver (Former Employee) –  Clovis, NMOctober 16, 2017
The “site manager” has no idea what she’s doing. Nothing but down grading the employees in front of others. Just not very professional. I’m sure it would be a great place to work for but the management ruins the whole experience and does not appreciate their employees. Until Manager is gone I will not recommend the company to anyone for employment!
Pros
Great and friendly employees.
Cons
Management!

Sometimes difficult. Sometimes the credit are rough to deal with.
Driver (Former Employee) –  Mojave, CASeptember 5, 2017
A lot of pressure to go faster. A high volume of turnovers. A lot of waiting and a lot of driving. Some days are great and some are not. You must be very patient and tolerant. Be very careful not to set the camera off in he van. Some crews are easy to work with and some are not. Any little thing can get you dinged. When you go out of town it is fun. Watch the other cars carefully, sometimes they are not so careful.
Pros
You see new scenery all the time. Keeps you busy.
Cons
Getting calls while your sleeping.

Great Company
Operations Manager (Current Employee) –  Lenexa, KSAugust 22, 2017
Great company to work for. However, the benefits are another issue. High weekly cost's but large deductible plans only. The management staff are responsive to needs as well as team players. Overall, a great place to work.

Did not work at Hallcon Corporation
Dispatcher (Former Employee) –  Lenexa, KSAugust 17, 2017
I don't know why I am being asked to rate a company that I did not work for. I was never employed by a company named Hallcon Corporation. I do not know where this information is from.

No Life
Driver (Current Employee) –  Lenexa, KSJuly 27, 2017
You are on call but you do not get paid while you are on call. Your pay starts when you leave to go get a railroad crew and take them to their destination. You never know when you are going to get called out. You share a Van with another worker but you cannot start your hours until they get theirs done so you could go 24 hours or more without working. the pay is not worth it.

Never Again in life
Chauffeur (Former Employee) –  Temple, TXJuly 24, 2017
16 cents a mile, 7.25 wait time (rare). This job is not worth all those hours driving just to bring home 60 to 170 a week IF you get called for decent trips, working long hours. There is no personal time, your schedule is based on a Dispatch chart that is constantly going.
Pros
sightseeing Texas, helpful management, respectful passengers
Cons
fatigue driving, lack of personal time/healthcare/pay to live comfortably

Not enough hours
Transportation Driver (Current Employee) –  Avondale, LAJuly 15, 2017
It's a good job but you don't get not enough hours to make a living. The pay rate is low and you don't get paid while you are on call. Summer is a slow time of year so it is hard to get 40 hours in a work week.

Bad management
Yard Driver (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOJuly 1, 2017
The job it Self is not bad. Meeting new people. Vehicles are unreliable. Managment is terrible. Does not offer raises. Vehicles are always having issues and you are still expected to drive them. Not sure what management is supposed to do. Drivers take care of issues that happen.
Pros
Meeting new people
Cons
Bad management. No advancement. Unreliable vehicle's. Does not give raises ever
