Great job , lots of overtime..Seniority was important
Yard shuttle driver (Former Employee) – Spencer, MA – February 24, 2019
Best job in my life..yard shuttle driver in Spencer/ Brookfield , Mass. °terminal.. say no more . Long days but most of the drivers were very hard working people with families and office personnel were great to interact with.. We all came from 3 or 4 other union car haul companies and tried to work as a big new company. Sometimes we did not agree on seniority issues..
If you want to work for a company that doesn't communicate this is it.
Car hauler (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – March 4, 2019
I loved the job! Pay was good, good people to work with. As a driver I wrote my own paycheck by the loads I chose. Not many driving jobs that way. Also you pretty much run the way you want according to your needs for the most part. This company cant get drivers aa it takes a certain kind of person to haul cars and they will fire you over anything like faulty equipment that isn't drivers fault, that they don't fix ,speeding warnings, seat warnings.
Good pay, good fellow drivers, good benefits
Management does not communicate with employees, old junky equipment that shop manager doesn't want to fix, company not investing money into new truck at all terminals.
DRIVER/CAR HAULER (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – March 4, 2019
CEO makes millions but won’t update the equipment. Jack Cooper has some of THE worst equipment in the car hauling industry. There is no future in a company that can’t keep up with the work demands due to outdated equipment.

fast paced.a lot of work, must be able to adapt to your surroundings. work long hours and in all kinds of weather conditions. Be able to deal with unruly workers at times and make decisions on the fly, but its all what you make it.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Wentzville, MO – January 12, 2019
While I worked at Jack Cooper Transport, I learned a variety of skills that proved to be extremely valuable in my future endeavors. Management is extremely helpful and friendly, and their always available to help. Everyone goes above and beyond to do their best work in every department. The employees are very dedicated to customer service in every area of the company. Overall, management treats their employees very well. This is by far the best place I've ever worked at. I would highly recommend Jack Cooper Transport to anyone who is looking for longevity with great benefits.
Driver (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – December 9, 2018
Good pay and benefits because of Teamster Union. Just when you think you can relax in you job something changes. The company had good trucks in the north but just let the trucks in southern terminals run down.
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) – Petersburg, VA – November 13, 2018
A typical day's hours start at 6:15am and end at 4pm. It's a flexible job that promotes a family environment. The hardest part of the job is dealing with Union related issues. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with great people.
Chassis Hauler -- Lowboy Division (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – November 12, 2018
Your days are long. You must be very careful as accidents can happen very easily loading and unloading. Its Union. Hardest part of the job is loading and unloading in extreme weather conditions and lay offs.
Lot Manager (Current Employee) – Claycomo, MO – November 12, 2018
Jack Cooper Transportation is a fast paced passed company. You are micro managed. As a driver and on the yard crew. They take thier cues from prison,. Painting lines on the ground same as prison. No talking. Ect.
Mechanic (Current Employee) – Wentzville, MO – October 30, 2018
VERY bad management, work everyday forced in every weekend and holidays, you will be forced on 2nd shift with VERY poor management, they say they will hire you just to fire you. the only good thing about being mechanic is the teamster union
Yard Employee (Former Employee) – Liberty, MO – October 26, 2018
If the company could focus more on getting their product out of the 2 yards they might keep their contract. Always look over your shoulder. They want to fire everybody employed from pullers, haulers and supervisors. They have no appreciation for the hard work done by the ones actually doing the work.
Diesel Mechanic Technician (Current Employee) – Roanoke, IN – October 24, 2018
Before I worked here found a lot of mixed reviews, but all in all this is a great place to work! Most people who complain about this place haven’t worked anywhere else and don’t have a clue what the real world mechanic jobs consist of. Best benifits on the planet!
Driver (Current Employee) – Flint, MI – September 14, 2018
Jack Cooper is a great place to work. I have been working for Cooper for 10+ years. Don't fall into the mentality that some others preach do as little as possible because you don't get recognized for it, that is BS. Do a good job for your company, if they are not making any money they will close the doors. A non productive terminal will result in you not having a job, the customer will hire someone else to move their product. If you do your job and consistently do more than the daily minimum, work hard it will pay off. The harder you work the more money you will make and make your terminal more productive and result in a happy customer.
Be honest, work hard, and be the best at what you do. It's not brown nosing, it's good character.
