Long hours, decent pay, no home life.
Driver (Former Employee) – Austin, Tx – January 12, 2015
I drove a volumetric concrete truck for this company. Expect to start your day early, leave late, and have something break on your truck somewhere in the middle of your day. The equipment is old, ragged, and you'll be blamed for anything that goes wrong with it.
Management isn't really around. They just do enough to cover their hind ends, and yeah, that means throwing you under the bus in doing so. The dispatchers are pretty much in charge of the operation, and that gets real rough. You will be leaned on heavily to break D.O.T. regulations. If you get caught, those tickets are your responsibility. They will not back you at all. In fact they will fire you for doing what they asked you to do.
You can make a great weekly paycheck in the busy season. When it gets slow, expect them to find any excuse to cut your hours, or fire you. The benefits aren't great but, they have some. You get a weeks (40 hours) worth of vacation after a year, no sick or personal days in the meantime, and the insurance is pretty bad.
The employee's that actually do the work are very helpful, and friendly. The employee's that sit behind computers are mostly rude, and hypocritical.
In the end, it's a working class job, and from what I've seen, they're all about this bad. Take the good, and prepare for the bad.
A LOT of overtime. Corporate does not care about employee's. Equipment is old, and beat..
