Started out as a good Job
Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Fort Wayne, INJune 15, 2019
Driver manager plays with the rates on the freight, and cuts the driver short on what they should actually be making on a load. Too much unpaid deadhead.

Don’t pay good and no raise
Logistics Coordinator/Customer Service (Current Employee) –  Fort Wayne, INApril 18, 2019
You work VERY HARD FOR $13.00 dollars an hour. Management SUCKS! You will NEVER and I mean NEVER get a raise! Managers play favoritism with young children that work here and get away with ANYTHING! Manager picks and plots against people he don’t like. Extremely unskilled manager to say the least! Stuck in a room that’s the size of a closet all day and only chosen ones can leave the desk to go mess around all day while others are confined to their desk. Pay sucks, managers suck. You get PTO but can’t use it. Manager likes to deny PTO because he can. Worst place I have ever worked. Keep looking don’t work here
Pros
Free snacks and can wear jeans
Cons
No raise, can’t afford to take care of my kids

Discrimination and harassment culture
Logistics Specialist/ Freight Broker (Current Employee) –  TexasApril 6, 2019
Misogynistic logistics manager allowed to harass and discriminate against female subordinates. Terrible atmosphere, unfair practices, and nepotism abound in the logistics department, with no action by corporate who seems to support this culture.
Pros
Decent benefits
Cons
Harassment daily

Run away
Owner/Operator (Former Employee) –  Fort Wayne, INMarch 26, 2019
I sat more than I ran. Driver managers do not look ahead for loads if you aren't one of the favored few. When you do get a load out. Don't expect to have a new load waiting. Maybe they will start looking for one in the next day or so. If you need shop work, don't expect the shop manager to treat you with any respect.
Pros
Decent trailer
Cons
Not being able to pay my bills

No organization
Driver (Former Employee) –  La Porte, TXMarch 13, 2019
No organization and a lot of waiting around for dispatch. DMs play favorites and have no clue what they are doing. Always an issue with pay. Terminal manager does his best to get things fixed and keep things moving. But he is only one person. He pretty much has to hold the DMs hands to get stuff done.
Pros
Some times they have food for drivers, Pto, And works with you if you need off or need to leave early
Cons
To many to list

good company to work for
Driver (Former Employee) –  Fort Wayne, INFebruary 4, 2019
Buchannon was a good company to work for, pay wasn't too bad but there was no overtime pay and the insurance benefits cost around 1000.00 a month with a 3500.00 deductible that had to be met before any coverage.
Pros
good people to work with
Cons
no overtime pay

Company Driver - Solo - OTR (Current Employee) –  Fort Wayne, INNovember 1, 2018
Sorry to leave. Enjoyed 9 months here driving box van.I resigned due to a liability issues. I'd still recommend the company that allowed me to get home every weekend and my company driver checks ranged from 1200-2800 as a lease purchase owner/operator.

Just Dont
Driver manager/customer service (Former Employee) –  Fort Wayne, INOctober 17, 2018
Training is nonexistent but you'll still be chastised for not figuring it out. Bonuses are not nearly what they tell you they will be. There is a lot of high school behavior--talking behind peoples backs and sending emails chastising one person but copying the group. Hostility and frustration are the norm. Do not work here unless you enjoy drama.
Pros
None.
Cons
Pay is terrible, environment is hostile and dramatic

Management, training, culture
Driver Manager (Current Employee) –  Ft. Wayne, INOctober 9, 2018
The owner is a good person but management sucks they don’t have procedures or policy’s you learn as you go everything that happens with any driver on your board the blame typically lands on you It is very frustrating because all your supposed to do is manage your drivers day, planner sucks they only have one, she connects the dots never looks at HOS to plan drivers properly, you don't know who you can trust. You receive maybe 1 day of training if training at all if you are lucky then are expected to know everything the culture is terrible This is a company with hostile working environment harassed
daily through emails, when you report abuse no one gets back to you with a response, and they have an HR director which are grounds for legal action. STAY AWAY way better treatment at other Trucking companies. Mind you this the Corporate Office!
Pros
fair pay, but not worth it!
Cons
everything but pay

Too many chiefs!
Driver Manager (Former Employee) –  Fort Wayne, INOctober 7, 2018
The owners are good people but management sucks! They lie to their drivers, too many negative “chiefs” and titles in Operations, the culture is terrible, and very poor training. Belittling other employees and prejudice remarks were often heard. This is a company with hostile working environment written all over it. I wouldn’t recommend anyone to work here.
Pros
The owners are good people
Cons
Hostile work environment, poor management, poor training, lack of disciplining, combative behaviors

Sporadic work place with questionable fairness.
Drum Thrower/Labor (Former Employee) –  Clute, TX 77531July 25, 2018
Simple yet sometimes challenging work with mostly non existent management. Some days your super busy sometimes nothing.
Challenging work would be managing keeping multiple blocks running with no down time for them.
Enjoying this job all depends on your coworkers they were never to picky on who they hired. Leading to a lazy workforce.
Pros
lots of option-able overtime, freedom to do your work as you saw fit as long as it got done.
Cons
salaries and benefits were extremely low for the work being done.

Logistics Specialist (Former Employee) –  Fort Wayne, INJanuary 31, 2018
Way more stress than necessary. Extremely fast paced environment, cut throat atmosphere, little pay. Poor benefits. It takes a few months before you even get a commission check, so you're stuck living on twelve dollars an hour. At least you can claim welfare while working here.
Pros
None

Hated the Laporte office
O/O Driver (Former Employee) –  Laporte, TXJanuary 14, 2018
They mostly send the drivers out to Louisiana every day maybe 6 - 10 trucks and would typically have enough back hauls for half the drivers to come back. You are lucky to get a load every day and they have the worst trailers on the road. Blow outs every week and poor management. All outgoing loads are preloaded and no pretties are done on the trailer before loading. If you find problems with the trailer you won’t receive another load most likely until the next day. Working local is a joke. Might get to run 1 or 2 loads and end up sitting in the office for hours while the dispatcher is giving loads to his friends. Very high turnover rate and you HAVE to clean out your trailer at a drop yard in Louisiana BEFORE you get a haul back to Texas. No empty paid miles if they don’t have a haul back from Louisiana and they keep telling you that they are working on a load for you while your hours run out. High turnover rate. Don’t waste your time.
Pros
They will hire you fast
Cons
Too many to list
