Driver Manager/Dispatcher (Former Employee) –  North Jackson, OHMay 21, 2017
There are some really great people there. It is a high stress and fast paced environment. The company is always expanding although the training program for new employees needs strengthened.

It's, well, ok...better choices out there
Driver (Former Employee) –  Tontitown, ARMay 18, 2017
The trucking industry has to be your passion. You will spend weeks on the road away from your family and friends. It is a great way to see the country (albeit from the cab of a truck), but places to park are rather limited, so forget about 'seeing the sights' during your off hours. The money can be good, but not at PAM. There are other companies that pay a LOT more for the same work.

Not a good experince for me personally.
OTR Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Springfield, MOMay 15, 2017
PAM is awful. They have one heck of a business going, but their trainers are rude for the most part. The company just gets as many drivers on the road as they can without much care, in my opinion, as to the new drivers ability. Then there is the mentoring program, which once again in my opinion, was a super nasty experience.
Pros
None

Good place to start but not to make money
CDL A Driver (Former Employee) –  Tontitown, ARMay 15, 2017
PAM is a good place to get your start, do your one year contract and get out. After your one year you can make good money elsewhere. Pay is pretty low and management kinda sucks
Pros
Travel, Dedicated lanes, Good about hometime
Cons
Poor Communication, too much time out at a time

You get back what you put in.
Driver Trainer (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAMay 10, 2017
Like any trucking firm, it's what you make it. I make good money, decent home time and have built a good relationship with my dm and upper management. No company likes whiners or employees who think the firm needs them more than they need the job.
Pros
Equipment, benefits, good management
Cons
Shuttle runs, cpm could be higher

This company is very disrespectful when it comes to their workers. You have super long hold time when calling the office.They do not like to give you your home time.They don't run you on the route that you was hired for, and the pay sucks. Looking for a better company to work for.

Decent company to work for. They have standard routes and good training. I was on the road six to eight weeks at a time. Pay could have been better and availability of loads could have been better managed.
