Friendly atmosphere
This place was super nice. My co-workers were amazing and super friendly. I didn't appreciate the amount of work I did and no pay raises. There aren't many options in terms of moving up.

Smoke and Mirrors - They put up a good front
When you are first hired everything is great! From that point on it's a down hill slide. Pay raises are inconsistent at best. Upper management thinks you are the "little people", believe me I have heard it said!

There are good people there but most don't stay long. As far as the office/shop it's a revolving door.

Lots of talk no action
Worked for the company for 5 years and only got one raise and that was only because I threatened to leave. Not a lot of room for advancement and they like to give more work to the people who are good workers

You get to drive comfortable
Freight is slow in the winter time. Management is cool as long as you’re not a jerk driver. Trucks are comfortable, t.v, refrigerator, thermoking, microwave all come with the truck.

Guaranteed Pay
Guaranteed pay is helpful in starting a new career path, but can also limit your driving experience as non-guaranteed drivers get better routes. It gets frustrating that you are not notified ahead of time as to what your next load will be.

Great Training department, providing anything you need to be successful.
Provided a week orientation about the company and process training.
Four weeks of training in the truck with a trainer providing explanations of all of the task required for running a route. I am a new driver and over all am impressed with the training provided. Would recommend Decker as a good place to work.

Would not recommend Decker Truck Lines
The hiring process took way too long. It was difficult getting a hold of our recruiter. Orientation was great and their Equipment is nice, but they do not have the miles they promise. Management is very hard to work with. Dishonest and Disrespectful. We were never on time for our scheduled Home Time.

Good Intentions But Poor Execution
The owners and most of the staff are great people. The Equipment is older but fairly maintained. Some of the Driver Managers have no business being a driver manager.
Pros
good shops/terminals
Cons
Poor managment

Leading in the other direction
Company more focused on the management side instead of the backbone that makes the company run and put drivers down instead of appreciate the ones they have and encourage them to better preform but write you up without explaining the problems that can get fixed and running off potential great employees...

Great place to work
I have enjoyed my time with Decker Truck Line. Management is helpful and friendly. The wages and benefits are comparable if not higher than other local companies.

Poor dispatching
The dispatcher that I was assigned to never answered his phone when you called. To get ahold of him you had no choice but to use the in cab ELD to send him a message and then wait for a response. Sometimes it be just a few minutes then other times it be 45-60 minutes.

Great company to work for
Decker is a family owned company since 1931 and very stable. It's a great place to work with lots of benefits for both office/shop and drivers! If you work hard and do a good job you will be rewarded with a great career whether driving down the road in a top-of-the-line Decker truck, sitting in an office in one of our beautiful terminals working on the computer, or working out in the shop on the newest equipment.

Doing work for decker
I was never late on a load, I was always early on my deliveries then all of sudden I got fired for stuff that wasn't major. Who would ever think that they would ever do this to me, this place is a joke I wouldn't advise anyone going here they will screw you over eventually just like three friends of mine and me. This is wrong what they did and do to people.
