Melton Is an unsafe company
Consultant (Former Employee), Tulsa OKNovember 21, 2014
Cons: their trucks annoy other drivers
I am aware that "Melton Truck Lines" has a right to be a safe company but at what cost? Melton's "back-up" beepers are waking drivers up in truck stops. We have the right to a good day or nights sleep. Drivers using back up beepers moving up and down trying to get into parking spaces are hindering our right to sleep. This makes us unsafe drivers do – more... to a lack of sleep. I submit to Melton this information. When a Melton truck wakes up four drivers in the four spots next to the space, he is trying to occupy as much as 120 drivers per day per truck are upset with Melton. In an industry where good safe drivers are hard to find and getting much tougher to enlist this would to kill Melton recruiting efforts in five years. I have an excellent safety and on-time record and would never call Melton for a job after being woken up three times this month by their "back-up" beeper. I know other drivers feel the same as I do. 3. We all know that drivers take a lot of stuff out here. Companies expect us to get things done. Professional drivers go to great lengths to get good sleep. Displeasing a driver by "pounding on his door" or using a "back-up" beeper will upset an operator at the very least. I have seen trucks towed out of a truck stop because a new driver riled other drivers off. We all know there at least nine things a driver can do to a truck at a truck stop that will disable a truck from leaving that parking area. Sabotage that is expensive to fix and will hinder a driver from making his appointment on time. The last thing I would do if I owed a trucking company would be to put something on my truck that makes other company mad. – less

A good company
Flatbed Truck Driver (Former Employee), Tulsa, OKOctober 21, 2014
Its a good place to work if you don't mind staying out. I stayed out between 8 and 10 weeks at a time. Lots of micromanagement. They might as well just have management ride in the truck with you. Pay was great, but wasn't home enough to be able to enjoy it.

Good paying job as long as you're willing to work
Truck Driver (Former Employee), Tulsa, OKJuly 23, 2014
I can honestly say I had very little problems with this job. In fact the only reason I left is because I needed to be home on a more regular basis. The work was consistent and the pay was good. I would highly recommend this employer to anyone who is willing to put in the hard work.

Long-haul flatbed carrier with six terminals in the Mid-South and Ohio
truck driver (Current Employee), Tulsa, OKJuly 17, 2012
Pros: newer equipment, knowledgeable mechanics and maintenance, health and wellness programs, 24-hr person on duty
Cons: home time program, out-of-touch office culture, no terminal in fla. or ga
The average driver stays on the road for 3-6 weeks running the lower 48 states. Trucks have a governor of 65 miles-per-hour. Company drivers are forced dispatched from 7a.m. to 4p.m., usually after emptying out. The fleet drivers there are typically of a higher quality workplace ethic. Experienced drivers try to share knowledge with newcomers. One of – more... the most difficult parts of the job is tarping freight outdoors during extreme weather conditions. They hire drivers with 6+ months experience from all over the country but hubs are concentrated in Tx, Alabama, Oklahoma, OH. – less
