Great company to work for
National Accounts Manager (Former Employee), Nashville, TNApril 14, 2014
Pros: they are just real good people.
Cons: no cons
I learned almost all I know from this company. Mainly I obtained my customer service skills from this company, and found I was a natural, and they are good about advancing people from the inside. They always noticed when my work made a difference and how much extra time I spent. They listened and appreciated my ideas. The company is structured very – more... well and runs and has stayed in business so long because what they do works and is successful. I would suggest this company to anyone looking for work and I would suggest them to any company looking for a new carrier. – less

RUN....RUN ... RUN... THE PAY SUCKS FOR ROLLING WITH HAZARD AROUND THE CITY
Fuel Truck Driver (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXSeptember 24, 2013
Pros: they will train you on tankers
Cons: no advancement, no raises, vacation sucks how they pay it
where do I start... First of all they are one of the few companies that will train you on tankers so that was one of the reasons why I went. Ok now ... the owner of this company lives in Arkansas and he will never leave Arkansas to come to his own place of business to even meet the drivers that work for him... Instead he sends his son here to the terminals – more... to give all the drivers the same speech about why we not getting more money because they have to purchase trucks. the co workers we're cool, but you do have a lot of them up there that tell on everything... they are the only fuel company up here that break down your paycheck to the penny... they suppose to pay a set amount for a load but when you look at your check stub you will see that they are breaking it down by gallons.... they make your pay settlement so small to where you cant see it so less questions you will have to ask... they have other drivers who train you that have less than 2 months experience hauling fuel – less

OK place to work. There wasn't a lot of direction and it seemed like the way to do things constantly changed.
Data Entry (Former Employee), Nashville, TNJuly 18, 2013
Pros: decent pay
Cons: didn't feel like they were concerned about their employees
I worked part time here and would come in in the mornings and open up driver trip packs. I would sort them accordingly and enter all the data into the computer so that the payroll employees could pay them accordingly.

The management seemed to play favorites here and you could tell who was and was not a favorite. I was here almost 8 months and found – more... out I was pregnant. Since I only worked part time, I was not offered health insurance. When the management found out I was pregnant, I was let go. They told me it was because they could no longer hold my position, but unemployment investigated and determined I was fired for being pregnant. – less

Never a dull moment, stay very busy
Dispatcher (Current Employee), Jonesboro, ARMarch 8, 2013
Pros: working 7 days a week then off 7 days
Cons: very long hours, stressful at times, not enough money
A typical day at my job: Go in at 6am and get reading of our stores that we inventory (ie:sams, krogers). Once I have current readings I start dispatching loads to drivers as they are ready for another load. I also talk to our customers on a daily basis and take several extra loads (orders) over the phone. There are deadlines that have to be met with – more... each load that we send out to a driver. I am in constant contact with drivers, as well as my manager to keep them up to date on what is going on and if there are any issues. The hardest part sometimes is making the drivers and customers happy at the same time. The drivers get paid per load, so regardless if it pays good or not they must do the load if they are with in their legal hours. Sometimes that doesn't make them very happy. As far as customers go; sometimes it's difficult to make them happy with making sure loads arrive on time or the store does not run out of gas. But whatever the issues is as long as they are kept in the loop on what is going on they stay satisfied. Most enjoyable part of my job would have to be that there is never a dull moment in the office. There is always a new challenge to figure out; or a driver cracking jokes. – less

Account Manager (Former Employee), Nashville, TNJuly 12, 2011
Company has problems being honest from one department to another. But that's probably been handled by now. Management is professional and helpful. For the most part the company is fairly liberal even though the political stance seems conservative. This is (or at least was) a family owned operation, so opportunity for advancement, though there, is not – more... often. – less
