Lease Operator Truck Driver OTR (Former Employee) – Jackson, MS – February 5, 2018
It's not a bad company just have a few bad apples that get you into the Lease Program by telling you that you can upgrade your truck whenever you want to and that isn't true this is why I had to leave couldn't make any money due to bad equipment leaving me deeply in the hole,so to all those who are thinking of going down that road get everything in writing because they will lie to your face without remorse.
Forced Otr time to get days off at home that's not equal
OTR Tractor Trailer Driver (Former Employee) – Richland, MS – February 11, 2018
Your are forced to do too much mandatory Otr time For a fewdays home time. Training period is very extended without good pay per mile. During orientation and trading instructors are very rude to drivers and constantly threatening your employment for various infractions that you may or may not commit. Penalized for refusing loads/routes that you prefer not to drive. Minimal accommodations for Otr drivers on breaks and resets at yards. Pressure to drive when you are fatigued.
Non compete clause if you chose not to work for them.
1. Typical day - Dang near non-stop work, not challenging but it can be a little stressful at times. 2. Learned - How to Manage (plan & schedule) 25-40 drivers. Personnel & Customer Relations 3. Management - In House: Managers - Often Non-Present but Foster a Very Relaxed/FunEnvironment. Supervisors actually run the place and do an outstanding job. Corporate: Don't know why but they have no idea how to manage trailer pools. Buy More Trailers!!! 4. Workplace Culture - Super laid back and fun Co-workers are awesome, but you better be ready to play around. 5. Hardest Part of job - Finding time for lunch. Dealing with different driver personalities. 6. Most enjoyable part of job - Office Culture. Fun place to work without tense HR concerns.

Service Billing Office Manager (Former Employee) – Richland, MS – May 24, 2017
I worked in an office that had mold in the ceiling, I stayed constantly ill with respiratory issues. When I complained about the issue they said that there was no mold. I often work 6-7 a week and over 50 hours a week.

Good company to start with...great people! Good starting salary, great trainers, always helpful in any way, and great equipment. Would totally recommend for leasing a truck as well if that's the route you wanna go.

This company act the same way as many other trucking companies out there after working for them the 1st 3 months is great , but after that your mileage will drop real bad with the excuse that freight is getting slow and constantly have to remind them that I need mileage To pay for lease and soo many bad decision made by dm when it come to move loads from one place to another when apptmt is far away just for someone else to have it, making you wait for another load.
CDL Class A Driver (Current Employee) – Jackson, MS – January 30, 2017
Nice place to work at.. Have you home at good times.. Supervision is awesome.. Nice trucks 10 speeds.. I love working at kllm because they give you a chance to grow with the company.. If anything come open in you choose it it's yours..
Truck Driver Class A (Former Employee) – Richland, MS – December 26, 2016
Made the most money and best home time. Always the best large fleet equipment. Dispatchers really cared for drivers..even the CEO was a cool guy to run into at terminal.
Was never cheated on miles or reimbursements. If i needed an advance it was OK..If truck needed washed they would gladly send it to blue beacon.
If I had never left my life would likely still be great today.
Regretted leaving as the grass was not greener on other side, later on being ran over by a JB Hunt driver who forgot to sit his parking break in a Pilot parking lot putting me in a wheelchair for life.
Company Driver (Current Employee) – Richland, MS 39218 – December 22, 2016
There's a lot of sitting and scarcity of freight. They could do alot better when it comes to managing freight and drivers, but I will say I love that they have truck wash bays at each terminal, and as a lease driver you get paid mileage pay which sucks!
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Morrow, GA – November 19, 2016
It has its ups and downs just like every company. If you are willing to work hard and move up there are not opportunities.. that is about the only down fall. Once the company expands I think it will have a lot more to offer.
Driver/Operator (Current Employee) – Jackson, MS – November 8, 2016
Dispatch keeps out past your home time. And if you do get home time is hours away and have to get there on your own dime. Loads are paid from zip code to zip code so you will short 30 or more miles in the prosses.
Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Jackson, MS – October 18, 2016
KLLM is mostly a lease operator company. No company benefits such as health but at a higher rate than regular company employees. Great lease owner operator program with a $1.00 pay out at end of lease and/or a walk-a-away lease if lease operator is not what you like being.
Great lease progarm for first time truck buyers.
Health benefits at higher rate than regular company employees.
OTR Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Jackson, MS – September 17, 2016
My experience at kllm didn't go so well. There was Inconsistent pay every week, from 1100 one week to 300 the next week. I could never get home time on the days I put in for, it was always 1-3 days after.
