Great place to work
Driver (Former Employee), Tulsa, OKMay 26, 2015
Pros: Great benefits, 401k, Medical / Dental, CPM increases, equiptment replacement.
Cons: CPM wage, Much sit and wait time.
Melton is an awesome business for the most part. The equipment is very well maintained. The company seems to care about there drivers and change things accordingly. They have a great training program and continuously attempt to move forward with the economy. Pay is based on CPM , so amount of money made is based upon the ability to move. Most loads are in the southern parts of USA.

I love this company and I would not want to work for another OTR company other than this one.
OTR Flatbed Driver (Current Employee), Tulsa, OKMay 12, 2015
Pros: Pay, treated well by my driver manager and all of management, Good equiptment
Cons: Being away from home for months at a time
A work day consists of strapping or chaining my load and also tarping. Driving up to 11 hours daily.
I learned how to do my job safely.
Hardest parts of the job were tarping and being away from home for so long.
The money and freedom are the mosy enjoyable parts of the job

Great Company
Truck Driver (Former Employee), Tulsa, OKApril 23, 2015
Pros: Decent pay and benefits
Cons: Time away from home. Excessive tarping
Driving for Melton is just like most driving jobs. You spend a lot of time away from home, but you get to see and visit a lot of different places.
Melton really cares about their employees and their equipment.
Pay and benefits are decent.
Hardest part is having to tarp almost every load. Tarp pay could be better.

Very productive place to work
Flatbed OTR Driver (Former Employee), Tulsa, OKApril 6, 2015
Pros: Well maintained trucks
Cons: tarp 90 percent of the loads
Melton is a nice outfit to work for . I enjoyed my time there. I had a nice truck and they kept me moving. The draw back of course is they tarp 90 percent of their loads. I probably wouldn't have a problem with that except for they only gave me $40 to tarp them. I'm certain that the tarp job paid well over that but they decided not to give it to me and I don't think that was fair. The pay wasn't that great either. They micro manage you at Melton also. I will not be returning to Melton. Thanks for the memories!

great company if you work hard the Melton way!
flatbed driver (Current Employee), Tulsa, OKMarch 15, 2015
Pros: miles miles miles 80% paid benefits
Cons: ryan floyd
I have been at Melton for 4 months I have zero issues with this company. I am a very hard worker who enjoys difficult tasks if you are not like me DO NOT WORK HERE. This company expects you to do your job the MELTON way if you can't do that this is not the right company for you. If you work hard you will make really really good money. 80% company paid benefits and one of the highest pay scales in the industry enough said...they will go the extra distance to get you home on time even if that means screwing someone else's miles so don't be mad if it happens to you...

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 to a lack of sleep. I submit to Melton this information. – more... 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.
