Long Haul Driver (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TX – April 6, 2015
Pros: Truck washes. Nice picnics. Beautiful and well maintained trucks
Cons: Good 'ole boy network
I initially wanted to be with Lone Star for the rest of my driving career. As I continued to learn and accumulate miles I quickly realized that I wasn't getting the opportunity of advancement I thought I was due. Maybe if I had voiced my opinion they would have listened......maybe not. However this was one of my favorite companies to work for because they really know how to get it done! They have some really nice trucks and take great pride in keeping them up and well maintained. Lone Star is a top notched transportation company. It is one job that you could actually gain knowledge other than just driving the big rig.
Terminal Manager (Former Employee), Kilgore, TX – August 22, 2014
Pros: family time
Cons: worked for father inlaw
My day started at 0700 and ended around 1800 I learned several things about Over Denominational Loads I was in charge of the office and the 18 drivers Most were good at what they did, but they were used to the old fashioned way before electronic logging. Training the drivers to use electronic logging, when they were used to being able to manipulate the paper logs. Knowing i was able to keep the trucks loaded and they all made a good paycheck each week.

Lone Star is a great company that supports its drviers with an excellent management team and knowledgeable employees. The most difficult task with Lonestar is keeping up with the ever-changing rules and regulations. Overall a great place to work with lots of room to learn and grow.
Receptionist (Current Employee), Gainesville, TX – December 27, 2012
I answer multi-line phone systems, create and maintain complaince reports, data entry. Most enjoyable part of the job is the laid back atmosphere, but in the same token, the job can be slow and somewhat boring at times.
