Processor (Former Employee) –  Albany, GAJanuary 27, 2016
Millis Transfer Inc needs better management over all. The company is a trucking company but has no base value for its employees below corporate level. The benefits they offer are reasonable but need to better explained.
Pros
pays every week
Cons
high turn over rate

Regional Driver
Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Eden, NCNovember 29, 2015
Drove for six months. You don't get a lot of miles. They got spy cam in trucks. Cheat you out of miles. For people looking to get your CDL, do not go through them. Talk to a lot of students who were not making any money. If you get on a regional run, they are going to put you in a small truck with half a twin bed.
Pros
Equipment is fairly new but small
Cons
No miles, small trucks & little pay

Nice Co-workers
Recruiter (Former Employee) –  Black River Falls, WIJanuary 4, 2015
In the morning I would check my email, Then I would log into our database and get applications and call applicants that were qualified for the driving positions. I would do background checks on the applicants, run MVR reports, and if everything checked out then I would call them and let them know their application was excepted. Fun workplace and the people I worked with were very nice. The hardest part of the job was getting angry drivers or other callers about our drivers. The most enjoyable part of the job was calling an applicant to let them know there application was accepted.
Pros
we could buy damaged goods at cost
Cons
not family oriented

away from family, slower during non peak times

Millis now has spy-cams in all trucks.
driver (Former Employee) –  brf, wiDecember 23, 2014
Millis now has spy-cams in all trucks.

I call them spy-cams, even though they're right there on the windshield staring at you because Millis claims they can only audio/video record you when you have a critical event (i.e.: hard braking).

Millis says: Don't worry they'll never come on when the truck is stopped and you're in the sleeper. That turned out not to be the truth. You can be in your bed and that camera will come on whenever they want to see what you're doing.

What Millis doesn't tell you is that whenever the green exclamation point light is on, they can both hear and see you in "live time" just like Face Time on your cell phone.

The stress level that the cameras create is difficult to deal with. Many drivers have already reportedly resigned.

Odd thing .... Millis keeps sending us safety messages stating that the no.1 cause of crashes is distractions, yet they have this major distraction right in the middle of the windshield staring at you.

They started these cameras right around the same time the most recent of the Millis Brothers got busted again for DUI right there in Black River Falls, WI.

Millis was a really good co. til they got embarrassed by more DUI arrests by the 5 brothers who own the co..
