No salary increase in 4 years. I was told I talk too loud, eat too loud, drink too loud, and breath too loud. How do you get around that, Large volume of work, but never showed an error when you made one. Just reprimanded when you made a mistake.

My husband worked for this company dispatch was poor would run you into violation. And than blame you, when you quit. Expect them to claim you wrecked the tractor and trailer so bad it had to be towed. They will lie cheat, and if possible put you down like you don't know w what your doing when in reality these dispatchers have no ideal what they are talking about. They have never been on the road.

Good job for starting driver. Decent training and safety oriented sometimes to a fault. Always on camera in the truck. Travel directions are sometimes a joke. Need to be more specific and detailed. Maintenance and equipment are generally good. Trailers and trucks are sometimes at a premium. Slip seating.
Some good driver managers, decent starting place for driving career.
Lack sufficient amount of equipment, Pay issues, etc.
Support Staff Manager (Current Employee) – Williamsport, MD – March 16, 2018
The company is steep into tradition - a family owned and operated business Average age is 47 with over a third being millennials. The company pays a fair wage for a fair days work. Expectation for all employees - drivers and office - is to be available and show up to perform the tasks for which they were hired. Tractors are approximately 3 years old, well maintained. Holiday parties and annual picnics are part of the culture as are celebrations for National Driver Appreciation Week

DM Bowman treats me like an individual and not a truck number. The driver managers are very helpful and easy to work with, The company does its best to give drivers a work life balance and decent home time.
Go to the lay down yard and tarp your trailer be carful were you step do to you can fall through the tarp. strap it down. drive a hour then check your straps. I will the go 2 hours then recheck the straps, repeat the same ever 2 hours until I reach my stop.
Coordinator (Current Employee) – Williamsport, MD – August 2, 2017
I have enjoyed working for DM Bowman. It is a good hometown company with a family feel. The drivers have been great to work with as well as the staff at the corporate offices. The trucking industry is a tough business and not everyone has the same experiences or perspective, but.... I would highly recommend applying with this company.

I saw a previous review from another driver talking about how this company is very sneaky with putting marks on your record. I couldn't agree more. They will put as many as they can and then start threatening you with termination on an almost weekly basis. It is borderline harassment how much my job has been threatened. They love to tell all of the other drivers about anything you do wrong. They are highly unorganized and the benefits are terrible. You have to do everything right in order for you to reach your minimum pay which is the only thing that makes it worth it, otherwise your pay is next to nothing. On top of that I work for a local business that has a contract with them and they can use us for up to 14 hours and my pay doesn't change regardless of how much I work. I will say that I drove team with them for a little while and the pay was pretty good but everything else has been dreadful.

If you are a new driver , please stay clear of this company. Just make sure you get everything in writing as far as your pay go. Keep track of your miles and extra pay. Bowman only cares about their freight getting delivered and not the drivers. So if you looking to try and support your family from this job , do yourself a favor and don't waste your time find another Trucking Company!!!!
We have over enough of drivers; however, we have a vehicles and trailer shortage, one would have to go in about two hours earlier in order to locate a vehicle to accomplish your daily tasking...I can not Rate the CEO, because I don't know them.
CDL Class A Driver (Current Employee) – Huntersville, NC – January 14, 2017
I've been driving for Bowman in Huntersville NC for a year now. Let's begin by saying that if you're expecting a trucking company or terminal with a nice drivers lounge, modern amenities and facilities well you're just living in a fairy tale. The terminal is a joke at best. Their maintenance bay is in dire need of updated equipment. We've went for about 9 months without a terminal manager, but that has just been filled. We shall see if she stays, after Williamsport bombards her with their BS. I'm constantly begging them each week to review my pay and miles cause it's not been calculated right. Oh! And if you expect a minimum of $900.00 a week, GTF out of here! It's not going to happen. That's a marketing scheme by their recruitment team. Which is a bunch of Liers. Just steer clear of Bowman, save your sanity, and self respect.
I worked as a Diesel Mechanic in the shop at the Williamsport Maryland location performing P.M.s and such.I had to almost beg for 12.00 an hour and they expect you to do external engine work, run diagnostics, and the whole nine yards. Easily a 25.00 an hour job but instead you get 12. Frickin 12 bucks an hour! They work you very strange hours and expect alot of overtime. The shop guys were great to work with and Troy was a good guy. Hes the night shift boss but beyond that it is a nightmare. This company should be shut down. Bowman is an ignorant selfish heartless man. He shouldnt be able to sleep at night. Terrible person. Hearing of this company is worse than nails on a chalkboard! Steer clear!
Countless. Everything about the company is a con. You spell con, B.O.W.M.A.N.
