It was okay
Driver (Former Employee) –  Basehor, KSSeptember 13, 2018
Need to pay more back to employees for what they pay out when they're on the road because they do pay out a lot of money while on the road. May consider paying them all the money back that they spend on a room for the night.
Pros
Get paid very well
Cons
Away from home to much.

Very Pleasant Job with predictable schedule.
Driver/Operator (Former Employee) –  Dunn, N.C.January 30, 2018
Equipment is run down unmaintained junk. Saftey department is very strict on speeding, and log violations, yet allows busted up dangerious equipment to continuiously roll down the road. This was once a company with good trucks and trailers. The work is pleasant, but the equipment will get You in trouble, hurt, or even worse. Was not going to leave a review until I read the DAC report they left about Me with only negitive after years of safe Driving!
Pros
Great work hours. Good co-workers. Job duties were pleasant.
Cons
Rarely paid for ALL worked hours. Busted up trucks, very high cost health insurance. Slow trucks on tight schedules.

Great place to work for
Driver (Current Employee) –  Dunn NCJanuary 6, 2018
They did not loose the contract do to bad equipment they didn't even loose the contract. They changed the way it was being ran to make the trips to run more efficient. So if you want to work for a company that's going to be around a while and that pays well then MTI is the place.
Pros
Easy work, pay
Cons
Dealing witb the post offices

hard place to work
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Dunn, NCAugust 2, 2017
very difficult place to work. Management in home office are not fair to employees in the field. People skills need to be developed with the mindset that if it were not for the drivers working, there would be no jobs for admin folks to do.
