Pros: nice housing at decent price when you can get in, earning potential higher than peer companies, standard insurance.
Cons: 401k matching is in company stock, maybe that's a pro if it ever climbs out of the toilet, or the company doesn't go bankrup, . no leadership, no communication from management.
Hauling fluids in the oil patch. Bad roads. No...horrible roads If it isn't cold and windy, it's hot and dusty, with 2 days of perfect weather per year. Great training and education from very knowledgeable and experienced co-workers. Dispatch is very good about keeping you busy. Potential for earnings is great if you are willing to stick it out long enough to be assigned your own truck. 3-6 months – more... depending on availability.The equipment is among the best in the industry when it is operational. Therein lies the biggest problem with working here. The shop foreman is unqualified to run a maintenance department. The repairs are only quick fixes to get the trucks on the road as quickly as possible. This has led to good mechanics either being shown the door for not being "team players" or finding it themselves for refusing to compromise their standards. There really is no "system" in place. Pre trip inspections are ignored and filed. You simply have to try to find a mechanic to help you out. There is a top notch facility, it's just sad that nobody seems to know what to do with it. Management shows absolutely zero interest in employee opinion. Generally speaking, apathy is high and morale is low. – less
