Clerk (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – November 16, 2017
Management is great. But there are some people there that are bitter about not being management, that they spread their venom around to others. Since day one, they have talked badly about management, in my face!! Day one!! It affects the dynamic of the team if they hear you talk badly of others. Mind your business, you're here to work! It's so sad to hear them talk so badly about their peers all day long. If you have to be told how to do your job and to stay at your desk then that's not management material. Move on. I would say be careful to whom ever starts working here. Or even better, DONT work here!
This is probably the most frustrating company I've ever worked for. Dont expect much. The nepotism and favoritism has been out of control for quite some time and is just continuing to snowball. The transport supervisor has been allowed to run wild here for at least a decade, ie. Hiring friends and family at a significantly higher starting pay rate than the average driver with years and years of verifiable experience. Understandably, the moral here is astonishingly low. I'd estimate 75% of the drivers are on the verge of revolting. Lies, lies, and more lies from management. Constantly. I regret ever coming to work here and am actively trying to get out. The safety department portrays itself to be strong, but in fact is very weak. If you have been in this industry a while and you come to work here, you'll see what mean.
fantastic co workers
begins and ends with the managent, no communication, unhappy people, Raises are on average about $.30 an hour once a year. Insulting and unacceptable.

This place has more internal problems. They do nothing to correct They hire from outside do not promote within . Keep hiring more executive. Losing many good people and long time employees Raises do not even cover cost of living. Insurance expensive . It is not a happy place to work. People are nice, that doesn't mean they can do a good job....and large majority do not do good job in their positions
Poor management. Lack good raises . Internal problems

everyone here is a bunch of back stabbers.they pay was ok (before insurance) but the health insurance was ridiculously expensive. Manager having relationship with a direct subordinate and showing very much favoritism. and the upper management wouldn't address the situation. I would not recommend anyone working for this company.
I enjoyed working at equipment division until the new managers started coming in. Simple task became long over complicated processes that slowed down productivity and brought down worker morale. Hard work is appreciated but not when its time for your yearly review, its like they forget when that time rolls around. Don't upset any of the managers because they will start finding any excuse terminate you. Go in and do your job and don't expect more than a few cents at raise time. It can be a great place to work but keep the raise thing in mind, that is the reason they lost all there experienced original crew that made equipment division great.
Management act like they support you only to get as much info out of you as they can. I came from one of JAM's competitors. Also had a week off due to medical issue with a doctor's letter, came back to work & was "let go" the same day. How's that for support? Owner has a mini mansion on the water close to Kemah bridge.
Great co workers
Bad management all the way to the top, unsupportive
J.A.M. Is a good company but they don't give you the opportunity to advance, they also hire from other companies so they wont give other employees a raise. For being a large company they also don't provide women with paid maternity leave.
This would be an ok place to work for if they had a great management team but unfortunately they don't. They are like the military of the fuel industry very strict. They also don't offer bonuses to drivers for doing great work. I've also heard from at least a dozen of their senior drivers that raises are very low .05-.25. Drivers have been there 15 years and still haven't maxed out their pay because raises are so low. Management is very weak.
Great co-workers and decent schedule
Improper training, poor management, lack of communication and support
learned a whole lot in the office as the single person that knew how to successfully run each dept. being a formal driver for over 20 plus years i knew how to communicate with drivers on an everyday basis. also started learning the logistical needs of the marine life.
loved working with my co-workers!
way too much for one person to handle on his own and not get the support from the management team.
