I drive from home so i don't use my personal vehicle
Driver (Current Employee) – Richmond, CA – July 13, 2018
My schedule is being on call 24 hours 5 days a week. I pick up Union Pacific train crew and transport them to instructed destinations.i drive to numeros cities so i'm always learning different areas.. My supervisor is the best also im responsible for keeping my assigned vehicle cleaned. The hardest part about this job is being called 24 hours on my 5 day shift. The best thing about this job is it's not a lot of pressure on the daily....

Alcon was a great opportunity for me and my family to get up to get ourselves up on our feet they work with you have a flexible schedule the great work ethics they really take care of you as an employee they care about your well-being and that is rare
The dispatchers are rude ignorant they hang up on you they try to send you on five trips at one time
CONTRACTOR (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 28, 2018
If you looking for something steady with a steady pay this is not the place to work for they lie about the money to pay is nothing but a cab service if you. If you want to be a taxi cab driver work at hallcon

Administrator (Former Employee) – Lenexa, KS – June 13, 2018
I just loved my team that I worked with at Hallcom. I worked with employees from all over the US and Canada. They are a good group with a big heart. They try to do right by their customers. They are constantly seeking out new and better ways of doing the job.
driver (Current Employee) – Irving, TX – May 22, 2018
told you work a twelve hour shift but they have no clue what that means. you get to take a van home if you are a road driver but you have to pay to wash and vaccum it out every day with no reimbursement. may sit around on duty for 34hrs and not get a single call.
Road Driver (Former Employee) – Yermo, CA – May 18, 2018
This job is 24/5. They can call out on another call even if you already worked 8. They have a no backing up policy that it ridiculous. You are also told to claim lunches even if you didn't get one. They do not follow DOT Laws as they are understaffed and I had worked several times 16-18 hours.
Shuttle Bus Driver (Current Employee) – Newark, CA – May 5, 2018
Typically, preparing for the day ahead, ensuring that everything is up to snuff. I have learned that being thorough, pays for itself in the long run. Managers are great! Always jumping though hoops. Driver culture is "we gotta stick together!".
The hardest part of the job is finding a parking spot. The most enjoyable part of the job, the People!
free lunches, paid holidays, great benefits!, weekends off!
OTR Driver (Current Employee) – Hauser, ID – April 15, 2018
On call is one thing, but how it’s run in Hauser is completely another. There is NO balance for work/life. If they don’t have enough drivers, even your days off are a joke, because you get called 5 times a day by dispatch for a shift/trip. The pay is not worth the hassle and headache of this job.
Worked in Corporate (Former Employee) – Lenexa, KS – March 6, 2018
Run Away from this company as fast as you can. The culture is negative, consistent turnover, unaccessible management, poor pay, terrible benefits and the list goes on.
Drivers can make more bagging groceries than being on call 24/7 with no work life balance. Internally all positions are lower 25% of the pay spectrum for what you do and there's a mean girls mentality within the HR department. Ownership has wrong people as managers and do not care either.
Road Driver (Current Employee) – Spokane, WA – February 3, 2018
Poor management, not orientation for drivers. Manager and Site Supervisor play favorites, do not respond to calls or text. BNSF employees are outstanding and helpful. Low pay and not a good job if you desire a life outside of work.
Shuttle Driver (Current Employee) – Jackson, MS – January 20, 2018
This job sucks awfully the pay is not enough to live on. They work you full-time and provide part-time pay. It's not worth the headache. The actual CN drivers make $20 + an hour doing the exact same thing so we should make the same amount
Driver/Delivery (Former Employee) – Helena, MT – January 15, 2018
Let's just say that, as a mature man, I choose not to waste time in my life. That includes the workplace. Hallcon's left hand did not know what the right was doing.......or even where it was. Another palpable thing is the subtle disdain the RR has for this company drivers because they are contracted outsiders and not one of "them". Good luck working "on call" for 10 hours per day that can span the 24 hour time period.
