Pros: if you can keep from getting your bonuses taken away, they are nice.
Cons: no job security, they will fire you for anything, dont trust what you say
Transportation supervisor is a joke. He is only out to make his bonus, absolutely wont stand up for his own employees, he is on a power trip, and wants to show his drivers he is in charge. Complains about hours worked, wants everyone off the clock asap, asks why you are driving 63mph instead of 65mph, Company policy is "no using electronics of any sort while driving". no phone, no bluetooth, no CB radio, if someone calls in and even says you were on the phone, your suspended immediately, you have to give your phone records or loose your job. Warehouse is a joke as well, inexperienced warehouse workers dont wrap pallets correctly, they fall over causing more time for drivers, which in turn gets you asked about your hours. When you explain that the pallets fell over or were messed up, you hear well work with us on that they are new!
BIG BROTHER WATCHES EVERTHING YOU DO, they know EVERY SINGLE MOVE YOUR TRUCK MAKES,
I learned that they will take away your bonuses quicker than a blink of an eye, which is their claim to fame about pay being so well. One of the two lead drivers is a great person to work with, he will help you with anything, the newer lead driver, will be your friend to your face, but will stab you in the back quicker than most backstabbers.
Huge company, with tons of money, not afraid to share if you earn it, but, they cant keep drivers because of the way that they treat employees,
Hardest part of the job isnt the actual work, its wondering if you have a job when you get back to the yard everyday.
They will change your logs in the computer and if you dont catch it you wont get paid for it.
These guys are all from other states, NY, GA, AL, they dont understand that word travels fast in the houston trucking community, they think drivers shouldnt talk to each other, so if you want a job where you feel like the management is only out to line their own pockets, and really dont care about you as a person, well then sign yourself right up.
