Steady work, occasional slow downs.
Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Alhambra, CA – February 13, 2017
At least where I was dispatched from it was since there is the occasional slow season for about a month ½ during the beginning of the year.
Worked with Tankers hauling liquid sugars and oil based liquid bulk, regional and local routes, mainly local but there were occasional runs to the near by states like NV or AZ.
Based in Los Angeles it was a very comfortable place to walk into with management and office personnel, equipment like the tractors and tanks were kept in good shape, though it hurts the yard having only one mechanic to attend to 10+ tractors, it can be overwhelming at times.
No OT here, all straight time and they will start you off at $19/hour, they will have work for you and if it becomes too slow you have the option of working for other work the company has in other locations, but working with Vans 53' so you can complete your desired amount of hours.
They will train you if you haven't ever worked with tanks and PTO pumps to push out product and into costumers cilos, tanks will be loaded for you and be place where you can just back into them or you might be hooked to a tractor and ready to go, overall is a good place to be in.
Management, positive office personnel, dispatch is helpful and tries to accommodate your off time needs.
Lay overs on days you did no expected to be.
