I enjoy my job with ProDrivers, my co-workers are a pleasure to work with. I have always held myself to set the standard high and achieve goals, working with ProDrivers has helped me maintain this practice. I have more to achieve moving forward and would love to find a company I can grow further with.
This is a 4 days 12 hrs. shift. I am contracted to work at Greer, SC. When you start this job, you are getting the same pay as the person that has been there 10+ years. No advancement, no benefits, but every 3rd week you get 5 days off. Overtime is paid after 40 hrs. The co-workers are not motatived, most of the workers want the money, but not the job.
Staffing driver (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX 78217 – September 20, 2016
You work for 30-40 different companies, anytime someone is sick or on vacation, or when a company is otherwise short-handed. The money is so-so, but it is nice to have the freedom to choose when and where you work. If you don't feel like working that week, because of school or family issues, you don't have to. If you don't like the company you're been assigned to, you can request a different one. Some long-term temp assignments can lead to permanent jobs, if you like them and they like you. The main problem at Prodrivers, however, is that no assignment lasts forever. You can get a good-paying assignment for a few weeks or months, get used to the nice income, and then it abruptly ends one day without warning.
No 2 days are ever the same. Lots of different assignments to choose from.
Zero predictability, expensive health care, and slightly-lower than industry pay
Driver (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – July 31, 2016
They seem to be able to find you work but some clients they use are sketchy and don't really care about people! Twice they (pro-drivers) have done what I call the bait and switch. they have a board on which all the clients/jobs are listed for everyone to see including the hourly pay amount. When you say yes I'd like to do a particular job you see listed for lets say 19 per hr. Suddenly they tell you it's only 18 per hr. and that the amount on their board was mistakenly written. Which would be fine if it had not happened 2 times in a row with 2 jobs. Seems dishonest and used car dealership type bait and switch to me. Like once you agree to do the assignment they take an extra dollar more out for the company. The clients who use pro drivers in the St. Louis area at least the class b clients are jobs nobody seems to want, they are deceptive to pro drivers and don't really say what's expected or the equipment (your own personal cell phone and minutes) to do the job. Is this a place for people who can't their own job on their own? Or is it a place for the misfits with problem driving records?
Seem to have plenty of jobs/clients
Bait and switch tactics about pay rate. Less than honest clients.

always messed up my pay and gave me the run around when I asked about it. the fat lady who is the manager never returns calls or answers the phone. she has been there a long time and everyone I know there doesn't like her either. better companies to work for then this one
Local Truck Driver (Current Employee) – McDonough, GA – June 29, 2016
I received a call in less than 24 hrs after applying and received my first assignment 2 days later; been working every week since. The pay is competitive and some assignments are better than others. Sometimes you have to take jobs you don't like in order to get work but if you stick with it you eventually get better assignments.
Truck Driver class A (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – June 26, 2016
Act like they have work . But do not. Had class pro driver told me I couldn't do class a dissent have enough exp. Which I did. Said I qualified for class b.never heard from them again. Lady was rude I wish companies like this dissent exists it just makes it harder to find a permanent job
Driver (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – June 24, 2016
They will call you and send u to a job with very little notice, you need to talk to the people at a company before saying yeah ill take it. They also will report you to dac if you get another job on your own and need to start before they can replace you, which is completely bs.
The management that I dealt with very unprofessional
Class A CDL Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Wichita Kansas – April 19, 2016
I worked with them a little under one month had two assignments one of them was 2 days.And the other one was approximately 2 weeks . Then I was off for a week for Pro Driver. so I ran a couple loads for my former boss. So the following Monday tortilla King wanted me to run a load for him just for that day so I did the contact person at tortilla King is who contacted me and that was the way it has been the whole time so I get a phone called Tuesday Morning from the management at Pro Driver and he said that he had not received a timesheet for the previous week . And I said I didn't work for Pro driver that week I work for my old boss and he was mad or seem to be disturbed I said you're acting like you're mad he said I freaking im very disrespectful what to do or what he wanted done the three to four weeks that I work for him wasn't that way. He was anextremely unprofessional and raising his voice and I did not have proper communication and guidance from management My problem is not with Pro Driver as a corporation it was definitely the management I believe you treat people like you want to be treated and I believe management should treat you with respect and take responsibility for the lack of communication. Or any of the future employees management wants you to call on a daily basis and it is simple if you know that's what they want and if you're actually doing work for someone else it's obvious management does not care for that they wanted to know whether I was working for them or the other company. Don't let this stop you from working with Pro Driver I just wanted it tomore... be known that the management in Wichita Kansas was very unprofessionalless
Turck Driver (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – March 15, 2016
I signed up with this company in November and they NEVER found me a job or followed up with any job assignments. I got 1 call for a 1 day assignmnet that started like 5am in the morning, i accepted it because i needed a job, said she would email me with the information and she never did. She emailed the next afternoon to tell me it was given to someone else, after that she said she would look for me something else, but i never heard from them again, and they are horrible at returning your calls and answering their emails i thought this company would be different than the others but i was dead wrong!!
This job allowed me to continue to pursue my desire to drive all while maintaining a better at home life with my family. It assures you that you will be placed at some point to a stable position but never meet that standard.
CDL Driver (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – January 16, 2016
Unlike the "other" company on Mcarthur, Prodrivers have a much friendlier staff that's eager to help you get started. They kept me busy with various assignments with good pay until I finally landed something steady. I highly recommend Prodrivers and would definitely return. GOOD LUCK DRIVER :)
Truck driver (Current Employee) – Albuquerque – August 5, 2015
Was told there are more jobs than drivers! So why was I not working for a whole week one time, two days a week another time, etc.? Oh wait they do have jobs if you want to start at 5 am, or 2 pm, and do dedicated runs. But if you want to have some life they don't always have a job for you! They tell you they working on something all the time, but what is it there to work on? Companies call, and they dispatch you, that is how it works. So if no company is calling, no jobs. It's an OK place until you get a real job, that's all nothing more.
Driver Relations Specialist (Former Employee) – Dallas/ Fort Worth, TX – June 17, 2015
The rewards of working with a staffing agency and improving the lives of others was amazing. However, the current staff wanted another candidate and didn't assist in my training. So I learned the system with online tutorials, increased dispatches over 20% and provided excellent customer service. However, it was one of those places where it is who likes you, not how good you can be. I did make a big difference in the lives of many so I am satisfied with the experience.
