Truck Driver /Owner Operator (Former Employee) – Trussville, AL – July 24, 2017
Overall It was a alright place to Lease on to. I was Leased on to Malone for more than 2 years. I did bring home decent money, But you have to know which dispatchers to call, the company prefers you to haul steel out of there home are. But if you find other agents to call you will be better off. Management was alright but could be more organized! I would not recommend because of this!
Truck Owner Operator (Former Employee) – Trussville, AL – June 29, 2017
Not a good place for a owner operator to work. Too many cheap loads. You must have access to a load board and find your own freight. You will not get help for a load from your dispatcher. You have to be independent.
Driver (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – January 27, 2016
I was told that I would be able to make money as well as buy my own truck. This was all not true as I got my paystub each week for five weeks it was always negative due to all the deuctions, such as truck payment, trailer rent, insurance, etc.
Fleet Manager (Current Employee) – Trussville, AL – October 26, 2015
Middle management is aloof, they sit on conference calls with senior management for hours on end, unable, and unwilling to assist with driver issues or needs.
The company will hire any driver with a heartbeat and a CDL and it is your job to make them suitable to run their own business.
Charts, graphs and other meaningless utilization figures are thrown at you at a rapid pace from upper management, the majority of which have never ran a truck or even dispatched one, so they have no reference of what someone should do, just what they have been told by their superior is the right 'numbers to hit'.
The entire company goes through sporadic 'culture changes' and after 2 weeks they go away.
I've heard of Fleet Managers making $50k a year, I'm not there and I've been here for over 4 years.
They do not care about a home life. work life balance. Stay until the job is done.

Class A CDL Driver (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – March 19, 2015
Good company to work for learned to search for my own loads tarp and secure loads would recommend to others. The hardest part were having big loads and having to tarp alone, but other truckers are a big help when avaliable. My co workers were very nice with information.
Independant Contractor (Former Employee) – Rockport, IN – July 25, 2014
They pay every week but not all of your loads. Then you have to call over and over and over just to get those loads paid out. They give a sign on bonus the first load hauled then take it back the second week. They try to advance a dollar per mile til you make it clear not to. They feed you a line and try to make you feel great about it. They lie about load areas and much more. I spent close to $700 dead heading my last week. I lost out on alot of potential revenue. I pulled the plug four weeks in. I DO NOT RECOMMEND YOU EVER LEASEING FROM THIS COMPANY! EVER!
