Truck Driver Class A equipment operator (Former Employee) –  Huntsville, ALMarch 26, 2019
Took 10 years to top out pay scale $20.+ hr ..last few years they 'skip' your raise 'ever other'' year.. work very fast paced cant get done with your route if you take lunch or break route too big to complete without help because They want buy enough equipment and hire enough drivers to get it done.they never had enough trucks had mostly 30 year old truck fleet so many break downs every day trucks in shop trying to get parts and after 5 more trucks burned to ground some just sitting on yard raged out. Brakes out of ajustment no air ride seats. No ac/ some no heat they would let everyone drive your truck if you were off they tare up and trash yours because they were back up drivers so you would come back damaged or in shop then you wouldn't even have a truck.so they would work overtime Fridays cause we couldn't get done we didn't have to stop at dot scales wave us buy didn't have to have health cards.they had money to buy truck but wouldn't till got behind couldn't pick up garbage until public complaining about excuses then started replacing old worn out equipment finally i seen alot of people get hurt.some minor some serious injuries some hazardous materials working around used neddles human and medical waste.dead animals.working in around dangerous traffic.if you like too stand in the rain and the heat all day I've seen alot of people retire earlier than they wanted to just to get away from management.i couldn't wait to get away from there most of drivers and labors say. Like to leave.they made a handbook just for our department separate from rest of city need doctor excuse.  more... for 1 day sick even if you never call in sick because there allways short handed because thers allways people out.vacation.sick.hurt.etc.would ask you to change doctor appointment ask you medical questions like they never heard of hippa laws.it would have been a different job with different management.hard work or seniority doesn't mean anything.special treatment for special people..have seen alot people come go turn over alot of new employees .  less
