Starting with pam transport was a terrific starting point to launch an over the road driving career but after three years the waiting for load times got tiresome.

Low pay
Driver (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJuly 19, 2018
You only earn while driving, so most of your day will be spent getting loaded or unloaded and waiting on a load. You also spend a lot of time waiting for repairs on truck or trailer. Most time spent for least earnings.

Not too bad
Self Employed Owner/Operator (Former Employee) –  Tontitown, ARJuly 18, 2018
This company is not a bad place to work but it is fast paced and hard at times. It requires good time management and route planning and a lot of dedication to make a fair amount of money working for this company. Pay is great for what it is, better for self employed drivers of course. I would not recommend their lease purchase program unless you plan to be away from home for long periods of time, working a dedicated route is not the way to go with lease purchase.

The job was very demanding and consisted of working on the weekends and not receiving overtime pay. The job is very stressful and can be very difficult at times.

Van Dedicated Manager (Former Employee) –  Tontitown, ARJuly 6, 2018
Change in executive management caused my termination. The new VP did not know me and chose another person.
My time was short with company and I thought that the re-alignment taking place was based more on personal preference versus performance.
Pros
Stable profitable
Cons
Political at executive levels

Professional truck driver (Former Employee) –  Tontitown, ARJune 13, 2018
Think this is s great start up for someone who is just getting started ,but this job is not for everyone.if you have family it could put a strain on things,but on the other hand if you can get family to go along it would be a great family thing to do,but you also gain experience and a lot of knowledge on big Riggs and that is a plus.
Pros
Travel
Cons
Not good for family

Enjoyed it for a while but it became way to stressful
Mechanic (Former Employee) –  North Little Rock, ARJune 4, 2018
When i started in 2016 it was a good place to work. As time went on it became very stressful, and the lead men would treat the techs like they were stupid, not a good place to work.

Boring but hostile
Student Driver Liaison (Former Employee) –  Tontitown, ARMay 19, 2018
The work itself would have been okay, if there had been anywhere near enough of it. There was maybe an hour's worth of actual work to do each day, the rest of the day was spent answering hostile phone calls from student drivers. Be prepared to be yelled at on a daily basis for things out of your control.

Great place for new Employment
Company Driver (Former Employee) –  ArkansasApril 16, 2018
Good place for a lot of new drivers. I really dont see what is with a lot of people talking down on a company that provides jobs its hard not working. So I say find your own experience. You gotta do what you gotta do..
Pros
Getting paid
Cons
Sometimes others make your job hard

Otr company driver
OTR Driver (Former Employee) –  Tontitown, ARApril 4, 2018
PAM Transport was a good fit for me, vacation pay of 3 weeks after 5 years of service . OTR DRIVERS THAT WORK IN LANES NEAR THERE MAIN TERMINals i.e. Dallas , Little Rock, North Jackson Ohio or others etc. could have more frequent home time if married etc. Good equipment and support team... keep moving and you can make a good living.
Pros
Safety / fuel bonus, Good Equipment, For the most part friendly staff
Cons
Sometimes left on hold for long periods getting though to Operations

Don't work here.

I honestly didn't work here very long. I left quickly to go work for a bigger company, JB Hunt Transport. PAM requires long hours and pays very little.
