Falsely Advertising To Suck In More Drivers
Driver (Former Employee) –  Lake Wales, FLNovember 16, 2015
Oakley hired me, and many other drivers, under their current advertising claiming that drivers will get 2 days off work for every 7 days worked. We were also told break down and layover pay had no caps. Now Oakley is telling it's drivers that they only get 1 day off at home for every 7 days worked, and they basically have capped break down and layover pay at 1 day no matter how long you sit. They do this with a smile on their faces and telling you that it's a good thing. It might be for the company but it sure isn't for the driver that has a family at home and likes to spend time with them. It's a all new low for Oakley Transport that claims to be family oriented and know that home time with drivers family's is important to them.
Pros
The cpm (if they don't lie and change that as well)
Cons

Seemed to have turned a new leaf compared to prior reviews.
truck driver (Current Employee) –  Detroit, MINovember 16, 2015
Driver for Oakley. Great pay, benefits are expensive but good, no complaints. Dispatch talks respectful and customers are friendly and we have a good reputation with them. Trucks are good but older, new ones go to senior drivers as they should. No complaints.
Pros
Pay. Orientation pay and hotel. Support
Cons
Older trucks. Tank washes but that's this business

i have worked at Oakley for a few years. They do promise you the world. When you get on your own they will not run you at first for two reasons. First they don't want to push you until your ready. Second they want you to go to management to tell them your not getting mile. Once you do they will make sure you get what you need. When something is bothering you they want you to tell them. As you know squeaky wheel gets the grease
Pros
benefits and pay
Cons

Truck Driver (Current Employee) –  Lake Wales, FLNovember 22, 2015
Long haul from Florida to California every week running teams. However the company is not family oriented so there is not a lot of home time.

liars, will tell you anything to get you and then your stuck with them!
company driver (Former Employee) –  Lake Wales, FLMay 25, 2012
they say work within the rules and then set impossible time tables to make it legally. and if you bring it up they say its your fault and dock you money, they short your miles on every run and take out money for gloves, hard hats, fittings for the truck, and other things that sometimes feel petty and ridiculous.
Pros
can't think of a single one
Cons
they say follow the hos, but expect you to break them.

Oakley Transport now uses the Holiday Inn Express in Lake Wales. Full breakfast, nice clean rooms and any amenities needed within walking distance.
