Risk, Safety and Training Manager (Former Employee) – Monaca, PA – August 2, 2018
Because of the high turnover and potential driver shortages, there is a lot of stress in the industry. With 500 trucks to fill, there are times when pressure to fill conflicts with ensuring high standards in quality drivers.

DIESEL TECHNICIAN N TRAILER REPAIR (Former Employee) – 12491 mines rd – July 11, 2018
good working environment but new management is not qualified for position, keep doing his job by the knowledge of other employees, also managers work as a mafia little group against employees.
Fleet Manager/Dispatcher (Former Employee) – Owensboro, KY – July 7, 2018
Great company to work for. Was very welcoming to new employees. Held classes and seminars to further employee knowledge Economy got tight and it seems they tightened up on profitable employees when they possibly could have taken other steps to save jobs.
Profitable employees let go although management continued to spend profits.

Truck Driver Class A (Former Employee) – Aliquippa, PA – May 8, 2018
My time at PGT was great until I started getting shorted on my pay. Was lied to on detention pay too. No breakdown pay,lied on that too. My management sucked. Wouldn't take care of me when I asked. Wouldn't take care of their drivers.

Compliance/Permit Auditor (Former Employee) – Monaca, PA – April 25, 2018
Great place to work. Good benefits and staff. PGT was a great place to be employed. I loved the working in the fast paced environment. cross training so that we as team members would be able to jump right in and perform other positions within our Dept. when needed. We all worked as a team. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with the ever changing DOT regulations.
Recruiter (Current Employee) – Aliquippa, PA – January 12, 2018
There is a great support system here, if you want to advance and you work hard the skies the limit. Management welcomes feedback and they have a willingness to help and change if they see anything going wrong.
Professional Driver - Flatbed Division (Current Employee) – Aliquippa, PA – December 31, 2017
This company is ran by a CEO that appreciates his drivers. I have had a lot of great experiences and support with PGT. I would say that there is room for improvement on the side of the fleet management and communications. While its assumed that there are a lot of drivers assigned to each FM, I would like to see more communication from them with the drivers. Being out on the road by yourself can feel very isolated and you start to feel out of the loop.
Decent pay, they know your name and support teams are their to help
Away from family, sporadic pay based on loads, lonely life on road
Auditor (Current Employee) – Corporate – November 29, 2017
PGT makes you feel very welcome from the get go. Everyone is super helpful, and they build people up to succeed. The whole company's main goal is the drivers, and of course there are struggles in the industry, but we try every day to keep our drivers safe and happy, and the employees behind the scenes safe and happy as well. We all play different roles but working together is easy. PGT is a great place for drivers and office personnel to work if they enjoy a fast paced, every growing field with many opportunities.
Driver (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – November 8, 2017
To much free work. I was out of Houston terminal. Terrible management. Lied about regional. Lied about home on weekend. Lied about wait time pay. Bad scheduling no wait time pay. Slow.trucks. lots of dead head. Oklahoma terminal showed favoritism. The recruiter Oklahoma kaycie was nice. Laredo yard is bad to. If you live on Texas or Oklahoma go to oil field instead
Professional Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – October 30, 2017
As a whole, this is a good starter company for new trainees or if you are trying to get your feet wet in the trucking industry. Other than that, they will not pay you for what you are worth. The training staff at headquarters are awesome and did an incredible job. Besides that,,I had the worst managment team in the world and they needed to all be fired. There is some favoritism with the loads and seniority among the drivers. Well guess what, at the end of the day, people have families and bills to pay. Good starter company, or excellent company to work for if you are ok with being gone all the time and have no life.
Driver (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – August 23, 2017
This has been a roller coaster for the last two years or so with them taking money out of drivers pockets.On top of not being home pay has gone down.Management could care less.I would not recommend coming here.
Management (Former Employee) – Aliquippa, PA – August 21, 2017
#1 Flatbed company in Beaver County, with over 25 + terminals in other states, works best making sure the drivers are happy and get home as needed. Change is always happening and that makes the turn over rate high. Great company, just need to make better decisions on how they uproot employees that are knowledgeable and show he or she is an asset to the company whatever position they are put in.
Regional heavy haul truck driver (Current Employee) – Gary, IN – August 9, 2017
Love working for Pgt trucking and if there was a way I could be home everyday with them I wouldn't be looking for a local job. All-around great company with great people if you don't mind being gone through the week I highly recommend Pgt.
Regional Vice President (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – February 9, 2017
Enjoyed my tenure at PGT. Areas of responsibility included operations, sales and terminal development. P & L responsibility, brokerage and staff development were some key areas of focus at PGT. Culture was one of constant challenges and diversified goals changed in a daily basis. Overall accountability for the entire southeastern region performance.
