Sand Hauler (Former Employee) – P A Canyon, NM – July 19, 2016
A very bad place to work they have Toooo much Favoritism. Everyone should be Workin as a Team but this isn't so. Really says a Lot for Management and the Dispatchers. If any company is to acknowledge where their strength comes from it won't be this one.
Very supportive and deliver for you when you need it . something done.
o/o (Current Employee) – N. Little Rock – April 25, 2015
Dry bulk is totally different than anything I've done before. Picking loads up at farms, river ports, and many other places. Products I hauled such as,"corn,soybeans,chicken by-product ,roofing granules".The people you meet are much more down to earth then at the store warehouses. Its very relaxing going to the farms and co-ops. I haul a hopper and you will get dirty sweeping it out but nothing like a little dirt. My dispatcher is results oriented and wants you to get all the miles you can legally run because he has a vested interest in what you do. So its a team effort. I believe once you prove yourself to him and show hin that you'll deliver or at least communicate any problems and mist importantly, be honest, you'll earn his respect . Everything I've asked for,if it was (home time, a special event,needing paperwork to go through,) and many others. If I communicated it they did their best to get it done. Yes , they are a safety oriented company and will not make you run illegal. They like you clean shaven and your truck well maintained. I run hard but legal . I easily run 3000 miles average a week when working all week.I have had 3600,3800 before , even with e-logs. I've met a lot of experienced Oakley drivers while here and meeting them has been helpful.. Once dispatchers get to know you and see you can communicate and have a can do attitude. Why even when you start they are glad to have you. Now I saw a review above about trainers and bed bug motels. First Oakley is an o/o company and the motel I stayed at during orientation was clean and spacious. Didn't have to sharemore... a room either. If For any reason I had to leave it would have to be a very good reason and I surely would miss that southern hospitality ,plus the people I've gotten to know. As an o/o they see you as a professional but they are always there to answer any questions. Great company ,decent money. Nice atmosphere. They have delivered for me and genuiely seem interested in my life also . They surprise me all the time They know were having a baby and now that its down to the last few weeks. Witout me even asking, were getting you by the house because they understand the importance of family. Thanks Oakleyless

Owner Operator Sand Division. (Former Employee) – N. Little Rock AR – April 23, 2014
Sand division has it's share of problems. Only recently did they give a pay increase to O/O working in PA but only after they had many trucks quit and couldn't keep up with sand deliveries to the well. Dispatch and management doesn't listen to drivers concerns and are only concerned with one thing and that's getting sand to the well. Favoritism to drivers that live in the AR area was a problem also. You'll freeze your tail off working in PA area all winter just to have them send the AR boys up come summer and put them on the money making wells. Dispatch likes to use threats and coercion to get you to do what they want. Don't ever give notice your leaving they will fire you on the spot and shut off the fuel card. Your only treated decent when they desperately need trucks. Otherwise your treated poorly. You can make decent money at times but can do as well or better somewhere else if your willing to stay in PA,WV, and OH a few months at a time. Sand division runs electronic logs and yes you will pay for your tag the first year also.
