Truck Driver Class A (Current Employee) – North Jackson, OH – December 11, 2018
They have their recruiters to tell job seekers a totally different amount than they will pay. Then pam blames the recuriters and they blame pam , so the drivers get screwed.Even though the lawsuit in their home state was upheld against them again over pay for drivers.

Im a new driver at PAM, I think the good or bad comes from the individual and there work ethics, PAM gives many a chance to get there CDL and A truck driving job with no money out of pocket or experience. As any new career you start at the bottom and work your way up or into a better paying position, your attitude and self expression may have a barring on your job. All that said i believe PAM Transpot is a fine Company to start your career and even long term employment if you work hard be understanding and get through your first year and see where it leads.if it turns out im wrong i will explain that after a few months of employment.

Terrible management. Bully work atmosphere. No job security. Not a place to say if you're looking for long term. They can careless about office personnel or drivers. I would NOT recommend either office personnel or drivers to apply for Pam. They are awful people and will belittle you every chance they get.

If you like working long hours for very little pay this place is for you. Hourly rate is determined by how fast you can run a set number of stops. At a whooping.23cpm plus .02 for hazmat. Doesn’t pay enough to live on. Example 470 mile trip breaks down to about 10.25/ hr for a 12 hr day. 7.50 a stop. Maybe get two stops. And if the docks take their time to load you you don’t get anything till after two hrs. So there is a lot of time sitting and not making money. Insurance is super high. Be prepared to not make money.

Do not work at PAM Transport! there are plenty of starter companies out there that will pay you better and treat you better. I've been with Pam for two years starting with them, And even though that the pay was horrible($300 or $400 if I'm lucky) and sitting for 3 or 4 days at a time I still tried to be loyal to a company that do not value they drivers. They have people coming in literally every week. You are replaceable nothing but a number (truck number or driver code) to them that can be replaced and payed cheaper then you. The two years that I've been with them with all of my endorsement's (except passenger) I was still making 36 CPM. So do not make the same mistake I did and put in your loyalty, time and energy to a company that do not appreciate your dedication. Like I said in the beginning there are plenty of starter companies out there that will treat you way better then PAM Transport!

different is what I would call this company reason for that is on one side you have people there that actually cares for the driver and on the other you have the ones who are there to just work and go home not caring about the driver or driver needs or wants
Commercial Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Tontitown, AR – October 20, 2018
It was the worst experience i have ever had in a job . Horrible pay almost no miles most of the time. We would get a run for 2000 miles and head to pick up and end-up waiting on the load for 3 to 4 days most of the time with not alternative loads in the meantime.
OTR Driver (CDL A) (Former Employee) – Tontitown, AR – September 17, 2018
Lower start pay until you train others. Then you can make $120,000 as a newer driver in only 6 months! Polite and affable managers. Just remember to remind them to add miles to dispatches for empty miles driven to search for an empty trailer.
Young equipment keeps you rolling.
Frequently in Ohio and Michigan (Detroit is terrible for trucks).

Although there are always problems with a job, pam was better than many I've been with. There are plenty of yards making repowers easy, and lines communication is usually open. not all DM's were competent but if you can find a good one they can keep you running and take pretty good care of you.
