A lot of the environment is based on what a person puts into it. If you have negative people, that can impact an environment. We look to bring on positive people who communicate. This helps eliminate tension. We want to employ a relaxed atmosphere that is built on trust with one another. Much of the environment can depend on the location, whether you are in an office setting or on the road.

Just check out the companies excuse for being a lousy job.... it's all the employees fault! Enough said.
No opportunities for growth, you have to break your back to get them to bat an eye. Everyone around you will do absolutely nothing and get away with it while you are continually disciplined and harrassed. People who have been there for less time then you will get promoted and they somehow make it your fault. You dont get what you put into it. Save yourself the pain.
Never late to work..
Some crews are friendly, but most just bury their noses in their phones for the whole trip and barely acknowledge your presence.
Driver facing dash cams and GPS are driver behavior management used to threaten job loss for coercion and blackmail of drivers who are fatigued or have safety concerns about vehicles. The drivers responsibility is the "safety of the public" which includes employees. It's not management or corporate behind a desk that goes to jail if drivers don't have necessary skills to do something successfully. Work environment means nothing if you die or go to prison for the death or injury of others. Drivers who have safety concerns are negative people to those behind a desk wanting that year end bonus or commissions on loads. Driving any commercial vehicle was the most hazardous occupation in the United States last year, The deadliest job in American is the environment; unless you work behind a desk making jokes about the cognitive ability of drivers or monetary bets on who will crash and burn next. As a professional driver this is about as positive as it gets.
Well each van has a camera and GPS equipment..if you speed..brake too hard..they will suspend you for a day...next infraction two days..then terminate yoy
A lot of driving and different people.

Is the pay going up anytime soon to where it should be, like about $15 - 16 an hour, for people juggling their life schedules in order to earn a living?
Also - the law says, drivers have an 11/14 rule, (11 drive/ 14 on duty, by law you drive no longer than 11 hours in a 24-hour period.) NOT drive 12, sleep for 9.
You're supposed to have a 10 hour break period as a driver! Fed Regs- CK it out.
The environment is horrible, the employees are not thought about, they get minimum pay to take railroad workers to and from a spot. The vans aren't well taken care of and there is lack of communication.
