Poor Management , horrible dispatch , Low pay
Semi Driver (Former Employee) – Fremont, CA – October 31, 2015
The Company has 4 branches in the bay area , San Jose , Fremont , Concord , and San Mateo . In the last year every manager has left , in addition all of the dispatchers left. The Company replaced 3 dispatchers who knew equipment and customers with 7 people who have very little to no experience dispatching trucks or equipment. Be prepared to be over worked and dispatched over weight.
The Company is in real trouble. They have had to try and field a management team from their out of state operations, with no success. San Mateo had 4 Class A drivers and over the last year they have all left. The Company has not been able to hire any for at least 6 months. This means you will be in San Francisco all the time no matter what branch you work in.
The Company is under staffed as far as drivers are concerned ( down 22 class A and B drivers in the bay area ), Most of the outside haulers they normally used will not work with this company anymore due to the horrible dispatchers. they have a super high turn over , due to the fact that they treat their people like garbage and pay them a very low wage. They have an on call list that rotates every 6 weeks , this means you work any and all hours including weekends every 6 weeks. On call sucks , the dispatchers use the on call drivers to clean up their mistakes (they make lots of mistakes all day every day)
If you like low pay , 14 hour days , the worst dispatch on the planet , and a poor non existent management team who throw them selves and employees under the bus The Company is the place for you.
You get to work with construction equipment
Low pay, poor benefits, Bad management, horrible dispach, and long hours
