Manager (Former Employee) – Fort Collins, CO – March 31, 2018
Was great while it lasted and had a great team to work with. The only downfall was the contract was rebid twice before it was lost. So had to find another job because my only option would be to go out and drive over the road.
Truck Driver Class A CDL (Current Employee) – Sioux City, IA – March 3, 2018
Start off with recruiting. She was a honest recruiter, as for the pay and benefits. I was told I would be a dedicated runner for a local packing house in Sioux City to Chicago. I was told that I would be getting 3000+ miles a week. Orientation was fun. Very informative. Compared to other orientations that I have attended. Orientation instructors were very well educated on company ins and outs. They wait till the driving test to tell you that there is a rear facing camera in the trucks. then proceed to tell you that they only record about 2 minutes in a 24 hour period. Either that is false, or i was just lucky enough that my "2 minutes" were recorded as i was leaving a lot in Chicago to go to the dock. I got a "talking to" as i didn't wear my seat belt to go across the the street. As for miles, I get 2 loads per week. Therefore getting around 2000 miles per week. So my supposedly 1400/wk paycheck turned into 880/week. Not complaining about that. It is still good money. I have great home time. The only "complaint" i have about the company is the camera. Not used to it i guess. Overall, its a good company to work for.

OTR Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Fort Dodge, IA – July 29, 2017
Thoroughly enjoyed my time with them, was kept busy with the contracts they have. Highly recommend this company to anyone who wants more hometime and still make good money. Everyone there was friendly and other drivers did not hesitate to help each other. I had to leave the company do to a medical condition, but would have stayed until retirement otherwise. Great newer equipment, servicing and problems are taken care of at the closest terminal when necessary an expedient manner.

Customer Service (Former Employee) – Fort Dodge, IA – July 11, 2017
I liked working in the security building and checking in the trucks s they came home. Talking to the drivers and welcoming them back safe. In the office most everyone was helpful and patient about answering my questions.
if you dont know everything under the sun about a semi dont apply
Mechanic (Former Employee) – Davenport, IA – June 18, 2017

building and Grounds Maintenance (Former Employee) – Davenport, IA – June 5, 2017
Unless you work in upper management, the company has a proven poor track record with employees and an unusually higher than average turnover rate. Corporate treats their employees as assets to be disposed of at their whim. Management by dept heads is abysmal at best and the company adopts a 'never wrong' attitude even when proven wrong. good place to work if you like getting fired.

Truck Driver (OTR) (Current Employee) – IA – July 15, 2015
Mostly team effort among drivers and company. Typical day is to be up and ready in order to keep loads on time. Plan route, where to park if no parking at shipper or con, Make calls for directions if non available , calls for any safety issues if needed, double check load information, where on route will need fuel, do Pre or Post trip and add fluids when needed. My dispatcher is easy to get along with, in that we can disagree and still be nice, I could send cute jokes which cheered him and others up on stressful days, He knew he didn't have to worry about me getting the run on time or any equipment issues as I proved over and over I worked and communicated when necessary. Could work with fellow drivers and even learned from them or able to enlighten them on our job with my years of experience. Would swap loads in order to help other drivers or to also help me, when needed such as family emergencies or just time off for family.
big enough to keep you busy and yet good open door policy.
Not home as much as I would like, not always Decker's fault.
Refrigerated Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Fort Dodge, IA – April 29, 2015
Would go back to work there if it wasn't for fact I'm in online schooling. Actually got along well w/my dispatcher Gene. Actually enjoyed seeing the country. Rider policy too strict and have to pay to take wife.
