Always watch your back, they hire people that bankrupt their own company ruined water side slept with the coo to keep her job. Drivers run the roost they don’t listen do what they want come in an start whenever.
Don't waste your time, there are better places to work
Great coworkers just a horrible company. Dispatch is all over the place, management doesn't care, and the trucks are barely maintained. they will have you work nights then call and ask if you can run in the day. they do not care
This company needs a hard reset
While the average employee is pretty great to work with, the management team has been poisoned beyond hope in my opinion. They do not listen to their boots on the ground in regards to how to make the company work better and more effectively, regardless of oil prices, and will come down hard on said employees as if they are the entire problem they face.
The systemic breakdown in management can be summarized in one experience I had. We had a massive blizzard come in and before I hit, I chained both drive axles. I notified dispatch that I most likely could not get to my first load. They told me to press on and keep going. I became stuck in what would be a 50-hour ordeal. I got rescued by a grader and was able to get my first load. Then sent to my second load. On route, I became stuck, and over the 14-hour wait for help, my truck drifted, in some places over five feet deep. After sleeping in my truck, I was rescued and then had to get that load to have the weight to get home. I got to the disposal and called dispatch to tell them I was going to head home. I was informed that I would be written up if I did not complete the new loads because my hours had reset and it would be a waste of resources for me to come home. So with that gun to my head, I agreed and went on to these loads with zero food or water left in my lunch bag.
Literally 30 minutes later, I was stuck again, and waiting on the road crew to rescue me. 18 hours later, I had one load. in 50 hours, I made THREE loads.
Every time I called dispatch for help or a supervisor it felt like I was annoying them. There was another incident where a coworker ran his truck off the road into a canyon after losing control. I stopped to check on the driver and called dispatch to let them know where the truck was, they were annoyed I wasn't on my way to get my load.
That is is the level of disregard for drivers. They decided to make it mandatory that we use triple chains, which is fine. The only problem was I was informed if I wanted them, I would have to come in, on days off, to build my own chains from whatever scraps I could find in the shop. This is because at the time all of their parts accounts were on COD and they couldn't afford to buy chains.
They also had a hard time keeping tires on my truck. I would try to do a pre-trip and there would be steel belting exposed, or a tire(s) were flat. Dispatch always seemed miffed that I wouldn't operate the vehicle in that condition and let them fix it later.
So ask yourself this, do I like being treated decently? If you say "yes", look elsewhere for employment. I miss some of my coworkers but do not miss the double speak from management or the toxic heavy-handed supervisors.
