Zero management support with training
Road Driver (Former Employee) –  Spokane, WANovember 14, 2017
No training on job duties with the exception of a few videos and handbook for radio and phone procedures. No training by my supervisor on how to sign in for time tracking, crew assignments or where to find these important items. Just throw you in a truck and tell you to figure it out for yourself. Nice trucks though. Being on call leaves you with no home life.
Pros
Nice trucks
Cons
No home life being on call all he time.

Quick paced, stressful at times, Great wages
Coach Cleaner (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAAugust 8, 2017
It was a great company to work for. It was very quick paced and at times stressful. They gave us praise when needed but towards the end the company changed and things were being done differently.They wanted things done that we couldn't accomplish due to more work with not enough help. They promised job security but in the end the company fell apart.
Pros
Company Picnics, Bonuses
Cons
More work, less people

Not the place to work
Operation Manager (Current Employee) –  Menlo Park, CAJuly 5, 2017
The company does not have any standards. The ratio of the number of employees to managers is not there. Benefits are not good at all. Upper management lives in their own world.

Ok job, but not really worth it.
Road Driver (Current Employee) –  Argentine, KSJune 8, 2017
There are a lot of disconnect with communication with everyone. If you work this job be prepared to give up a lot of you personal time. You wont have days off, you are always on call but after 12 hrs of on call and 10 hrs of drive time you get 9 hrs of uninterrupted rest then you are right back on call. Takes a while for your body to get used to driving on the road all the time if you have never done this before. The pay is ok but nothing to dream over. You only get paid if you go on trips not for the time you are on call. You will pretty much have to learn as you go, training is only videos and the IVR system. The crews are really helpful to show you how to get to the different places you have to go.
Pros
Meeting new people
Cons
no life, no days off, and the pay

awful environment and management
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Lenexa, KSApril 10, 2017
Awful place to work period. They have music playing but the people are cold. Benefits are a joke 600 a month for me and a child, when your making 13.00 hr! Training is awful, just a depressing place, not worth 13.00 hr. There add runs constant and I should have known by that.
Pros
3 day week
Cons
bad management no fun poor people skills

Bad company to work for
Road Driver (Former Employee) –  Fulton, KYApril 2, 2017
All you know is that van. No family time. No days off. Dispatch is horrible. The supervisor doesn't teach you much you gotta figure it out for yourself. When I quit he sent me a rude text. Totally unprofessional. You also have to wait 3 weeks before you get your first check. They didn't tell me that when I started.
Pros
The vans are nice
Cons
Everything else

Wouldn't Waste Your Time
Long Haul Driver (Current Employee) –  Fond du Lac, WIFebruary 3, 2017
Full-Time Long Haul driver of two years. Winter is where you make 40+ hours a week regularly (some winters). Come spring work dries up slowly, in summer you barely make 20 hours regularly. Management is lazy and unresponsive, most of your coworkers are past retirement age and are incessantly nosy, and your dispatchers expect you to be able to stay up for 72 hours at a time. Now if you're looking for a winter gig that could end up paying well, I'd recommend working here from December through March, as that's when we get the majority of our work. Otherwise, working here means you have absolutely no life, the management isn't willing to work with a revised schedule for you, and demands full-time (6 days a week) if you're under the retirement age. Don't expect a raise, as no one has gotten one in the two years I've worked here. Don't expect a promotion as Hallcon doesn't care if their management is non-present and lazy, and will keep them forever. Benefits can be applied for, but you only get two weeks to apply, and the application times are December/January and April/May, and there's no online enrollment. Crew's are hit or miss as to whether or not they'll be a easy drive, but most tend to be if you can stay awake. Also in winter/summer AC/Heat may not always work, for you or passengers, Hallcon's in town management will do nothing about it. The only saving grace of this job is being from Chicago and being able to drive back there regularly, so travel is a big plus, but over time this job just becomes it's own issue and quality should improve before anyone else works here full-time.
Pros
Travel, Interesting Crews
Cons
Management, Benefits, Hours, Pay, Vehicles, Coworkers, Dispatchers, Lack of Sleep

Fun, easy but with no set hours
Road Driver (Current Employee) –  Bellevue, OhioAugust 11, 2016
Pickup crew and transport to assigned location. Enjoy talking with crew members and have learned a little about how the railroad transports freight across country. Hardest part of the job is dealing with other drivers who feel they can set their own processes and ignore the company handbook. The hours can be difficult especially planning time to spend with friends and family. Enjoy driving to new locations in good weather and seeing seasonal changes. The job is easy but the responsibility of safely transporting crew members is tremendous.
