I am looking to get out of this truck. I spend to much time away from home for No money. I spend to much time sitting without getting miles even if I call for re-schedule. freight delivery that would be 5 hours away is scheduled 2 days later. I have explained & requested change with no results or actions to correct
A decent place to work , but not to make it a career.
Driver/Operator (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FL – April 2, 2013
Cons: working 60 hours a week and not getting any sort of overtime
A typical day at Raven was 12 hours every day . The work was very repetitive . Management could have used more training in how to relay what the goals and accomplishments were not only for the company but as for the employee . Most of the my co-workers were pleasant to work with . The hardest thing about the job was constantly having communication problems – more... . – less
Cons: minimal hometime. gets worse as you work with them longer.
I literally stayed in this truck about 345 days out of 365 days in a year. You eat, sleep and breathe "truck" with this company... I had to argue with these guys to go home for 34 hours barely. You would literally drive or work about 14 hours a day. I had to start driving night and day continuously. Couldn't get no good sleeping pattern. Ultimately, – more... had to quit. I was averaging about 8 hours a sleep a week with these guys. My "circadian rhythm" aka sleeping pattern was messed up. I was miserable. The Qualcomm always went off disrupting your sleep. I just couldn't get any sleep with this company. – less
