Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – February 7, 2017
Company is a trapping company meaning every thing gets a tarp, even loads that don't need one. Management/Dispatchers sit behind closed/Locked doors other drivers are open to questions and are very helpful with day in the life at Melton. When entering a terminal to drop and hook load you have to enter shop for inspection, which is a good thing. Mileage pay is up, but miles are down - Typical trucking company To many drivers not enough freight to go around.
Nice new trucks T680 with freg.
Governed to 65mph and no power. Tarp every thing, Sit waiting on loads.
worked independently in warhouse and on deliveries
Shipping and Receiving, Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – October 1, 2015
enjoyed learning about the medical supply products, co workers in office were very cooperative in getting orders filled. enjoyed interaction with customers on deliveries to hospitals and doctors offices. daily work schedule was such that deliveries were made and out of town shipments were completed on time to satisfy the customer. took pride in getting the product to the local customer quickly and receiving the positive feedback from them.
comfortable environment, independent control of daily warehouse and shipping and receiving duties
hoped to stay in business. lack of technology put us behind, loss of accounts contributed

You sometime have to wait for a load Than when you get it sometimes you dont know its a 2 part pickup and you dont have time to pick up the other half in time Than you have to strip it down and most of my loads was trap So you trap down and when you get to your drop off you have to unstrip unless its a chain load unchain it put everything back up and hope you get a load out I somewhat like it because it did keep me in shap because it was hard work than a van driver
it was somthing diffenet
if it raining or snowing you out there working you have little time to get that load there
