Work was ok but, not enough money for miles driven
Haul Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – March 23, 2017
The money paid for the loads was not enough compensation for driving nearly 70 hours per week and almost 15 hours on duty every day. The Management Team always talked about driver retention but, never did anything to promote it.
money, hours, equipment not well maintained, management

CLASS A DRIVER (Current Employee) – Midlothian, TX – May 2, 2017
Excellent pay and benefits! Company is great to work for all around...like any company...as time goes on things get improved. The work environment is great and everybody is wonderful. Out of everywhere i have worked Sunset I can say they are a top notch place to work! I will say my first few years were frustrating but constant improvements have taken place over the years where i now will never leave! VERY GOOD MONEY!
I would not recommend this company to anyone after way i was treated

Recruiter Assistant (Former Employee) – New Braunfels, TX – June 27, 2016
wish i could have stayed longer with the company but work just got to slow. I enjoyed helping with the hiring of all the drivers. I helped fill in all positions for two terminals one in New Braunfels and San Antonio location.
Class A CDL OTR semi driver (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – April 28, 2016
The staff was like a second family to us as team drivers. We got a microwave and refrigerator and very generous sign-on as well as productivity bonuses. When my mom almost died they gave me time off, no questions asked. I would absolutely recommend this company.
Family atmosphere, great $$ and perks, friendly and knowledgeable staff that works with you in crises, lots of miles
Driver/Mechanic (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – April 1, 2016
where to start, junk equipment,shade tree doesn't even begin to describe this company the run numerous different "companies " to protect themselves from the liability when something happens they overwork and under pay and DO NOT CARE ABOUT IN NO WAY SHAPE OR FROM your work/home balance safety anything several people have gotten seriously injured nothing has been done to prevent the same thing from happening over and over they only care about the bottom dollar. truly a joke of a company management is even worse.. don't drive here the money isn't worth your life or health..
Driver (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – March 30, 2016
First, they tell me I am hired. Tell me to show up to orientation tomorrow! I told them I need to give my company two weeks notice. They tell me they need my tomorrow. So I gave no notice to my old employer. Went and did my DOT physical and drug screen. Show up for a 3 hour orientation. They did not ask for any direct deposit information. At the end of orientation, they tell me they do not have an employee number for me yet. They will have one on Monday. At 3pm on Monday I try and call. No answer. Left a message. Tuesday comes and they tell my my driving record does not show I have a CDL. (I have had one for 17 years) They tell me maybe my medical card information is not up to date with the DMV. I went to the DMV. My medical information has been and is up to date. They tell me they will look into it. Wednesday comes and goes and I do not hear anything back! Very odd that they said I was hired before they get all the proper information. Good thing I had other hooks in the water. I had two other trucking companies not have any problems with getting the proper information. Tried calling multiple times, no one answers the phone. Very odd company.
Can not think of any.
Tell you are hired. Only to find out that you are not.

Truck Driver (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – September 30, 2015
I have been here over 9 months and within those 9 months 3 terminal mangers have came through. each manager lacks the leadership and management abilities. They control their drivers like scum underneath their shoes or a totaltarian dictatorship. They have an unbelievable turnover rate here in San Antonio while managers have a mentality of believing if you don't like my rules we will replace you while constantly threatening pay as a control tactic although you get more loads than anyone else. We started out making 1300 to 1500 a week working 5 to 5 1/2 days a week and that has rapidly declined to 800 to 1000 a week working 6 days a week 66 1/2 hours and people still can't get their full paychecks. They promise you a permanent truck but slip seat you for months on end and once you are given an assigned truck they end up assigning it to someone else usually a new driver who they favor more. They have a no cell phone even hands free policy, and a two way camera management loves to waste their day away watching instead of worrying about managing the company right. They don't value the drivers and play too many games... Do yourself a favor go elsewhere.
guarantee pay if available 6 days a week
no work family balance, terrible management, long hours
Dispatcher (Former Employee) – Lake in the Hills, illinois – June 23, 2015
Start out the day making sure trucks and drivers are out on the road. Must be self motivated, management doesnt help much. Have to learn as you go and hope you understand it. Most enjoyable part is working with the drivers but that can be the worst part as well
