Favorites are dispatched before others. system for dispatching loads is antiquated.Not always truthfull about what they tell you. Take no interest in drivers opinions are things drivers tell load planners,dispatchers or management.
If you do not have bills to pay it is a good place to work.
Local company truck driver (Current Employee) – Grand Prairie Texas – September 21, 2017
As a company driver your promised good hours and good pay when they hire you. Then after you start working for Parkway Everything Changes. You are reduced to begging for 40 hours for the week. You're told if you need more hours you're welcome to go someplace else. Then when something happens and they get behind a few times a year then it's mandatory you will work 7 days if they tell you. Otherwise you're welcome to clock out and go home for good. They document everything. They tell you it's just documentation but you still have to sign it and it goes in your permanent file Including missing one day out of two years. That give you two raises a year. In which you Rises can be up to $0.75 an hour. Any documentation affects your raises. But even with a perfect review and no documentation you still will not receive over a $0.45 pay raise ! They have extremely high turnover because of the macro management, lack of yearly income potential and The the old wore out equipment. The average mileage on the trucks are 900,000 City miles. If you're just looking for a very easy job and you have very low living expenses with no dependents. Parkway would be good for you.
