do not apply
Logistics Coordinator (Former Employee), Tontitown, ARJune 9, 2014
Pros: if you like to work free it's a great place
Cons: they do not pay you for your work
0 integrity with this company. Management lies to get you to work harder at your job and promises things like promotions and more pay

Good company with good benefits.
Lead Development Instructor (Current Employee), Tontitown, ARJune 9, 2014
Decent company, but limited upward mobility. The company benefits package is probably better than most.

Starter company
OTR Driver (Former Employee), Tontitown, ArMay 24, 2014
Pros: experience
This is nothing more than a company to get started with. They put you through school in return for you working for them. The schools are ran by former drivers so they are going to teach you their old habits. If you are willing to run you will not sit very long. But once you have the experience you need, leave and find a better company.

Dysfunctional Unorganized Unprofessional
Driver (Former Employee), Irving TxMarch 13, 2014
Pros: seeing new places
Cons: everything
Pam Transport is not a good company, in details this is what you'll experience and how Pam really operates. I went to C-1 for 3 weeks no pay, passed all my test except I had to re take my driving test cause the woman made a mistake. Once I started my training I was getting paid 200 up 275 a week which I supposed to be getting paid 300, My Driver Mentor – more... got paid for the mileage I drove plus his I drove majority of the time while he slept He didn't teach me anything I learned majority of things myself He had no respect he used it in a water bottle with the curtains open in front of me we didn't stop unless he felt like it. Once it was time for me to upgrade I didn't have a dm (Driver Manager) I had to stay in a hotel for 1 month and 1 week They gave me a broke down used truck I got with my partner and we didn't get much mileage sometimes my check was anywhere between 275 the lowest and 600 the highest they gave us directions to pick up a load in ny which come to find out trucks are not supposed to come to ny cause of the low bridges and small streets we end up getting stuck under a bridge which resulted in my partner getting fired and it was Pam fault I barely get home time when I do they message me constantly while I'm trying to enjoy my time They have given me 5 dm since I been here they slow on loads I been here for 5 months now everything they say is a flat lie they should be shutdown I ask to get home for a emergency and I didn't get home til a week later the first time I didn't get home til almost 2 weeks later They had me loading hazardous materials when I don't have my haz mat and I don't get paid extra for loading hazardous materials even though I'm not require to they don't care about your safety I had a tire leaking oil that didn't get fixed for 2 months they don't care about family or home time and they pay you low and always late on loads and fixing the truck do not go to this company you will regret it your family will be stressed my wife had a miscarriage due to stress of this job and on top of that I couldn't go home til a week after she had it stay away – less

Good starter job
OTR Driver (Former Employee), Tontitown, ArFebruary 16, 2014
Good place to learn and make mistakes. Do your year, and then leave to find a better job. Other than that, it's not a good career making company. Not a good work/life balance, Gone every 5 weeks, pay is only good if the season is right, and management is sometimes hard to work with.

One of the Worst places to try and earn a dime
OTR Long Distance Driver (Former Employee), ArkansasJanuary 27, 2014
Pros: there are no pros
Cons: too many to even try to list
I spent so many days waiting for loads, $40 a day, if you're there for the full 24hr period..Worst management ever..A Huge Ripoff going thru their school and the tuition? $6000? Seriously..Had I done better research instead of trying to provide a decent living for my family, I would have Never..let me say this again..NEVER had got involved with Driver – more... Solutions or PAM..Worst mistake I ever made..Worst company on the road and the worst pay..Anyone who's ever worked there knows..It's sad..The upper level Mgrs and CEO should all be fired and taken to court to pay the truckers back for all the sorry pay we got – less

Driver (Former Employee), Tontitown, ARDecember 3, 2013
I appreciate P.A.M. and the oppurtunity it offered it me. I would not in fact recommend this company to anyone, yet I would not discourage anyone who might want to work for them.

New to OTR driving this is a great place to start.
OTR Truck Driver (Former Employee), El Paso, TXNovember 2, 2013
Pros: always new things to learn
Cons: cannot maintain good health being otr, very stressful and fast paced at times
In general, once a dispatch is received, a drivers clock begins, it can be fast paced or slow paced, but overall it is exciting. Going new places and meeting different culture of people (good and bad).

I learned mostly how to navigate throughout the USA.

A driver has to learn how to be safe first and manage time more than anything in being a driver. – more... Generally the people in management positions help you from start to finish.

The hardest part of the job of driving OTR is in the winter, while driving on ice.

The most enjoyable part of a driving job is when a driver accomplish the mission at hand satisfactory and the customer is happy as well as management personal. – less

Productive on occassion
OTR Truck Driver (Former Employee), Tontitown, ARJuly 23, 2013
Productive workplace on occasion. Learned how to manage time to ensure punctual pick ups and deliveries to and from customers. The hardest part of the job was being away from home so long. The most enjoyable part of the job was being my own boss and making decisions without a lot of micro management.
