Road Supervisor (Former Employee) – Ashburn, VA – February 29, 2016
Enjoyed relationships with drivers and being able to assist them during my shift. I learned how not to take situations personal. Learned how to be more patient. Management was like a family. Hardest part of job was sitting. The most enjoyable part of job was helping employees grow to their full potential

Dispatcher/Customer Service trainee (Former Employee) – Beltsville, MD – September 1, 2016
the attitudes of the managers came off a bit aggressive. They were trying to use certain scare tactics to put fear into future employees and you didn't feel like you were apart of a team to grow you were treated as purely a worker my trainer was awesome though she did a great job teaching our class and really told us what to expect as well as encouraging us to do our best
benefits and pay
you are not treated as team members you are less than the superiors in the building
Maintenance Clerk (Current Employee) – Santa Clarita, CA – September 1, 2016
Usually work is pretty steady, there are moments when things can get hectic due to some unexpected issues popping up. I learned better time managing skills and professionalism from working here. Management is friendly I personally do wish things were a bit more organized and clear at times. Everyone here is very friendly and helpful this is my first job where questions are welcomed by everyone. The hardest part of the job is when problems arise and new procedures are put out maintaining them can become irritating. The most enjoyable are the few gatherings MV holds for their employees as an appreciation for their hard work as well as the employees themselves everyone is very encouraging.

The Union reps at chicago 135 are extremely disrespectful. Both of them are big loud mouths and very unprofessional. I suppose since both of them are extremely large in size, they consider themselves to be intimidating. NOTTT. The female constantly talks about people and thinks mv is her own personal company. They both call employees out of their names, not only that, they say it in front of other co-workers. We dont need reps like them. Either get respectful people or dont have a union.
Driver (Current Employee) – Dinuba – August 28, 2016
Do not work here. Always changing your routes. Management very unprofessional. Pay and benefits are below average. Transits are always breaking down. No air conditioning in the transits. Co-workers are great. You do not get your breaks on time. Long hours and very stressful.
Working with co-workers
Low pay, stressful environment. I could go on and on too many to list.

Lead Dispatcher/Supervisor (Current Employee) – Sylmar, CA 91342 – August 12, 2016
My experience with MV has been worthwhile. I've been with MV since 2009 and it has been quite the experience. Like anything else in life, its had its ups and downs. But overall, I can say that I don't regret making MV my place for employment. I've learned alot along the way, and it has taught me that patience is a virtue. I am blessed to be apart of the MV workforce.
Excellent Benefits through the Teamsters Union 848.
The Operators are lazy! Not much room for growth or advancement.
Highly stressful,, not supportive to its employees
former driver (Former Employee) – niles il...chicago ill – August 3, 2016
Mv transportation Both Niles and Chicago location is the absolute worst company to work for. The Management is low end favoritism abounds.
Their are none, Management considers you a tool, They don't follow their own company rules, You get taken out of service regularly, For such petty things by pace the Contractor without proof of doing anything wrong, Not given a date as to when you will return
If you get hired their, know that the turnover rate is very high, They make promises they know they won't keep, Promises like 80 hrs a week, Once you sign on you barely get 65
Driver (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 2, 2016
This place will provide you with a check but that is all. There is no opportunity to learn anything new. Some dispatchers are horrible communicators, some members of management are clueless. The whole time I was there positions were being juggled around. New person here, new person there. Rules change on a daily basis, some rules apply to this person but not the next person. It's basically a revolving door, people come and people go. It's to you how to deal with what you can deal with.
It's a check
Never know when your work day will end, too unorganized, messy, no room for advancing. NO support.
Driver (Former Employee) – Hanford, CA – July 28, 2016
