Hallcon
Long Haul Driver (Current Employee) –  La Junta, CODecember 28, 2017
Management is poor with Hallcon. The power all goes to their heads and you get treated horribly. For the long hours and stree we deal with on every trip. We definitely should be paid a lot more than what we do. Health benefits are affordable until you actually have to use it. Biggest concern with this company is safety. Then explain why you want us driving under speed limits when it’s a hazard to all on board. You do not get any recognition or acknowledgment from this company unless you do wrong. They don’t do anything for holidays at all!!!!
Pros
BNSF employees great to work with
Cons
Benefits too high, pay too low, management horrible

Easy Job, Horrible Hours
Driver (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CADecember 23, 2017
This job was very easy. All I had to do was wait to be called for work and drive people from point A to point B. The pay was good, but the hours were too short and weird. Waiting on call for this job made it difficult to work elsewhere.

Poor management and wages
Driver (Former Employee) –  Binghamton, NYDecember 15, 2017
Got hired without even talking to the manager in person. Showed up and couldn’t explain anything to us about the job. Made it sound like everyone throws everyone under the bus. Extremely poor wages for the amount of work you do. Told me he’d call me back with a start day after finally talking in person, never got a call for about 2 months and claims he called and called but really never did.
Pros
Company van
Cons
Long long days and nights, horrible pay

I was denied pay and reimburse because it wasn't in the budget. I wouldn't recommend working here. You don't know when you're working. On call 100% of the time.

Fair
Road Driver (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXNovember 9, 2017
It's temporary for me. Don't care for the off hours and always waiting for the phone to ring. The pay is way too low and hours aren't consistent. This would be a decent job for a retiree who likes to drive and doesn't mind being called at any hour.
Pros
Seeing the scenery
Cons
Hours and pay

It is what it is: its a job.
Railroad Crew Driver (Current Employee) –  Commerce, CANovember 6, 2017
On call 24/7 and irregular working hours are trying if your a person who likes regularity. There is always a scramble to find a vehicle. Be prepared for things not to work most of the time and no help from management or your coworkers (albeit, you'll find one or two drivers who are willing to help you succeed). You won't know where anything is, you won't know how anything works, and you'll be discouraged on many an occasion, but, in time, if you stick it out, you'll figure things out. The industry (including Hallcon) is negative with a bitterly adversarial separation between management and labor (especially union workers). If you accept trips when your called, on time to the pick up, and don't wreck the vehicle (especially with a crew on board), you'll make your wages and be left alone for the most part.
Pros
Its a job.
Cons
Its a job.

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!

Poor Management, lack of scheduled days
Yard driver (Former Employee) –  Spokane, WASeptember 19, 2017

Pros
nice co workers
Cons
Low pay, manager is disliked by my
