Trainer, Driver (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – June 30, 2017
Drove for about 4.5 years, 3 long haul and 1.5 dedicated. I prefer dedicated but my experience was good for both OTR and dedicated. My dispatchers were honest and responsive to my needs and kept me running. I had many years of driving experience prior to Pride, so I knew what to expect. I was treated with respect and maxed my miles almost every week. My pay was always accurate (I can't say that about the other company I drove for). Now retired, but miss the friendships I formed at Pride.

when first getting on with pride I loved the job the people and the work was steady and kept you busy. left because of being there I was promised a 2.00$ raise though out my first year there. and when I asked about it they acted like I never was promised this yes the boss who promised me this left soon after my start date but the replacement supervisor promised me it would still be what I was promised after a year of no raises and false promises I left but the people whom I worked with were what I still miss

Logistics/Delivery was a typical day at work I learned new driving techniques and how to survive in the industry Management was very attentive to my needs My co-workers had great attitudes Hardest part of the job was being on the road 3-4 weeks at a time The most enjoyable part of the job was getting compensated weekly

Overall it was a really good company to work for, the pay was alright, there was usually work. Really only complaint is the office is really disorganized. Some examples of this are: after I finished training I was suppose to get a pay raise from .14/mile to .33/mile but it took three weeks for them to do this and it was only because I caught it. The training coordinator never Sent in that I had completed training to the payroll department so I worked for almost a whole month as if i was a trainee as well as a team driver. my other example is I got into an accident and I sent in my accident report stating what happened exactly, but when I went in for a review the safety department decided on what happened and it was not what actually happened at all.
Otr Driver (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – August 9, 2015
I worked there for 3 yrs. 2009-2012. Had no serious issues. Got home on time. Nice equipment, dispatcher was avg. Friendly owners and office personnel. They would drop the hammer on you if you were a screw up. I just stayed under the radar and out the yard. I'm surprised to hear the negative remarks. But not surprised. Its a trucking company. Thought about going back at times but the negative reviews saids something. I prefer a small company and paper logs!
Close, first name basis with almost every department in the company

Mostly refer trailers, some flat beds and doubles. They're safety orientated and have monthly online courses to complete. Last I knew, training for new drivers requires 250 hours and there's a huge need for trainers. Didn't have a problem with my fleet manager but heard a few managers were rude and unliked by their drivers. Only problem I had with company was the pay.
Dispatcher (Former Employee) – Texas – May 15, 2015
This company is a joke. All their work is 3rd party so most of the time there was nothing to do. We had to become desperate sales people to try and get the trucks moving. There was no work structure either. Poor management personnel and their drivers were the biggest whiners I have ever worked around. Big turnover rate. Overall I would say they need to do themselves a favor and just shut down their company. I would not recommend anyone to work here. I don't know what I was thinking when I accepted their job offer. They suck!
Class A long haul driver (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – December 4, 2013
State to state delivery of assorted products A typical day would be 500 miles, I learned an easy way to install chains (if there is an easy way). Management was always open door policy. The drivers all were great in the lounge. The hardest part of the job for me was chains and the best part of the job was scenery.
