Very chaotic and unorganized. People don't usually talk within the company so no one knows what the other is doing most of the time. If you are one of the special ones you are treated fairly however if you find yourself not in the little click that they have, you will be talked about, and never succeed in the company for no reason other than a few people decide they don't like you.
The job itself was pretty intense. Always had something to do.
Started as a driver -owner then transferred to company driver. The company treated me better while I was a company driver . I received adequate time at home, decent pay for miles driven. The management was very supportive and did what they could to help any concerns I had.
Sammons Trucking is very family oriented. Their philosophy is family, work, money. When my son was in junior high and high school I was able to attend his football and track events with no problems. It is a very busy job that is constant and most days not a lot of down time. In the office itself everyone seems to get along very well. My day starts with clearing loads for driver and taking calls, that usually slows down shortly after lunch and then it is checking paperwork, invoicing and contacting customers and driver on paperwork that is missing. The most enjoyable part of the day is when drivers come in, they maybe ones I know or have only talked to on the phone, it is nice to put a face with the name.
Lots of long term employees makes for a very stable company.
Because of the job i have it sometimes can be overwhelming.
Truck Driver (Former Employee) – MT – September 19, 2012
At first, it was a very good place to work, but as the economy went bad, freight became limited. I wasn't making the kind of money as when I first started. I really enjoyed driving across country. You meet interesting people. I miss it.
