CSR - Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Tontitown, AR – March 22, 2019
Worked for this company and the females were the only ones getting paid hourly when all the males were getting paid salary for the same or even more tasks and positions. If a female asked to come in late or asked for a day off it was denied, however if a male asked it would be granted. The better shift and pay increases were given to the males first even if they had been previously promised to a female worker first.
OTR Company Driver (Former Employee) – Shreve, AL – March 21, 2019
My experience working for Pam was terrible, they don’t pay you for what you are worth. Dispatchers were nice but sloppy when it came to finding loads Sometimes I would sit for a day or two because they couldn’t find loads
Great experience gaining company if you are able too sacrifice pay
Driver (Former Employee) – Michigan – March 21, 2019
The equipment is simply put Top notch. Great trucks, super reliable truck GPS and useable/efficient Qualcomm. The loads are generally light automotive which is very nice. The dispatchers and support all around are generally helpful and reliable/timely. Reliable reimbursements, will not cheat you on your checks. They are lenient on dings/incidences which = Job Security(gotta stress that) since you are not being payed top notch which allows room for error. There are NO cameras or sensors/buzzers. Eastern half USA very little east coast. Bottom line is that this is a reliable, job security company too gain your experience with as long as you are able too sacrifice pay for a bit for all of the above mentioned. Would work with again if time machine went back. Safe travels and enjoy/relax.
At first I looked at the reviews and they were bad but...
OTR Company Driver (Current Employee) – Tontitown, AR – March 20, 2019
From my own personal experience this company is great to work for I got a dedicated solo route within a month that pays way more than my job before I make 1200 a week I used to make that every 2weeks to some that might not be much but for me a new driver that great I have no camera watching me as long as I make my loads on time and follow company and DOT rules that don't give you any problems I feel secure with this job so far I have been there for 6months and have had no major problems not to say they are perfect but let's be real none of the trucking g companies are this one just fits me fine I'm home every other day and get to spend time with my family.
Professional Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Tontitown, AR – March 17, 2019
PAM Transport has shown little regard for drivers and pay situations. They often can leave you hanging in the middle of nowhere without a load or have you sitting for days waiting for a load. Most of their loads go to the cartage drivers rather then company drivers.
Enjoyed my instructors fun run into drive dispatch didn't work with you didn't care
Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Tontitown, AR – March 17, 2019
My health insurance was probably the best thing at this job they have good benefits but the pay was awful dispatch didn't work with you didn't communicate with you there was times I needed something and couldn't get answers I was left to just hang out
Over the Road Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Romulus, MI – March 13, 2019
This place is such a joke, do not sign a contract with this company. Pay for your schooling on your own. They will screw you over, management is a complete joke. Was at a Consignee for almost 4 hours waiting because Pam doesn’t have their shipping information right. I did team driving and that is the most frustrating thing on the planet, teammate getting lost, staying up for 24 hours straight, going down really steep downgrades, was not fun at all. You’re just a number to them, when I was sick and needed to go home to see the doctor they made me drive 5 hours out of my way to pick up a loaded trailer, then drive 15 hours back home. That is ridiculous. All that matters to them are loads, loads, loads. No consideration for the health and safety of the drivers themselves. Oh well. Glad I’m not there anymore. Good riddance.
Transporter (Former Employee) – Ft. Payne, AL - Laredo, Tx – February 20, 2019
To begin my driving career with Pam Transport was greatly appreciated. Pam Transport is a sound company. Their pay rate for mileage driven should be more compatible with other transportation companies rather than the bottom tier. I enjoyed learning the nations roadways through there system.
It's sad that a company has to put students under contract to work a year for them or repay their school to them the school only charges 4,500.00 pam charges the students 5,999.00 n they deduct 45.00 a week from their pay for reimbursement of the school plus charge them 25.00 a week for the truck n at 20 cents a mile starting as a team up to 23 cents a mile n may only get 4,000 to 5,000 miles a week n solo pay is 35 cents a mile up to 2500 miles a week the majority of the drivers set most weekends because Pam has very few customers open on weekends this is only part of the problem dispatch will show x amount of miles loaded n empty but payroll will get less miles sent to them for pay to the drivers n if drivers don't check it they get ripped off n if drivers do check it n it's wrong miles it takes an act of Congress to get the miles paid that didn't match their dispatch for that load low pay is bad enough but to short the miles n rip the drivers off too TO ALL FUTURE DRIVERS BE Very carful about going to work for this company

Driver Manager (Former Employee) – North Jackson, OH – February 2, 2019
Drivers were great to work with. It was the office enviroment that was disgusting. I have never work at a more miserable company in my life. A few in the office made it bearable to come into work. While ours needed training in just being good human beings. No support, total lack of training with a total lack of success. Sad truth is, I am completely ashamed of myself for staying with this company for as long as I did. If this company is not embarassed for itself on the way they treat people than at the every least it should be embarassed enough for the ones who have to work there.
Not a bad place to work. Pay issues and better communication issues. Other than that no problems
Commercial Truck Driver (Current Employee) – Tontitown, AR – January 8, 2019
Just want better payment for miles. Overall review 3.5 out of 5. Miscommunication with destination but staff and front office has great and proactive responses to educate a trucker to his or her needs.
Benefits, great vehicles, team driving and pay for schooling
Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Springdale, AR – January 7, 2019
Paying new drivers .25 cpm which was an insult but being a new driver and they paid for my CDL training I worked or tried to work with them. Low mileage loads and getting $100 - $200 checks every 2 weeks was like slavery!
Starter company. Low pay. Low miles. Low money. Does not pay bills at all.
Driver (Former Employee) – Little Rock, AR – January 2, 2019
At 500-700 a week (realistically, not the 900+ they promise you) you won’t be able to pay the bills.
No time home. You get one day at home for every week out. Meaning you spend a month out on the road, in the middle of nowhere, in the ice cold, in the scorching heat, in dirt yards, in truck stops, and you will only get 3-4 days home to see your family, your kids, your wife, your parents. Any responsibilities you have at home, you can throw them away. You won’t have the time or money.
commercial truck driver (Former Employee) – Tontitown, AR – January 2, 2019
i worked on the ford account and they will pay for your time but will take advantage of u being new and pay u bare minimum while your getting trained. when u get on your own they will pay u less because your on a dedicated account. when i was there they wanted u to park your truck at the operation center and drive home for your 34 hr restart even if u live across state because they wont let u take your truck home.
u have a bed to sleep in
the will pay u enough to eat on the road and but not provide for a family
