Over the road truck driver (Former Employee) – Altoona, PA – April 29, 2018
smith Transport is a place where you can get good miles, and be home if your route is 95 north or south. Atlanta is the place to be if you like running 95. there is a terminal there. need to upgrade it.

I've worked in the Roaring Spring shop for over a decade. And I have seen a lot of good people come and go,this is due to management not doing there job. There is no appreciation for all the effort and hard work you do and laziness seems to get rewarded. But it all starts at the top,if you don't have to do your job why would others think they should....
Tool program and a few good honest hard working people...

Driving a truck is a life that many people can't do because of the demand it places on your life as well as your family's life. Smith try's its best to blend the two together but it does not always work out. I felt that Smith was good to me as a driver and if they wanted me back I would come back.
Material Handler (Current Employee) – Roaring Spring, PA – February 15, 2018
The only positive thing about this is that it's a full time job with 40 + hours a week.The downside is the pay is low. It's all straight time,even weekends.Most of us haven't seen a pay increase in the last eight years,but our work load increases.Management is a joke anymore. They just don't care.Overall this is just another one of Blair county's poverty employers.I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone unless they were very desperate for work.

Smith transport was a decent place to work but the management was poor,they give you long miles then turn around and take them away. And give you 2 or 3 hundred mile runs,there trucks are very nice,they do inspection's on them everyday.

After they find out your willing to work they will keep you busy. Always enjoyed working for them. The equipment is top notch. Only issue I ever had was waiting on the shop.. But that eveyojne company..

The warehousing division of Smith transporting is a fast paced work environment. The company tends to hire people with mental health issues!, criminal backgrounds, former drug/alcohol issues or learning disabilities intentionally. For the sole reason of taking advantage of there situation. The company can treat them poorly. Pay them poorly. Make them work for years and years without an increase in wages. All the while convincing them they have the rite to treat them that way as no one else would want to hire them

Great place to learn new techniques in your career path and it can be enjoyable making relationships with drivers over the phone. One will learn good decision making skills and are able to feel accomplished at the end of a workday.

The eequipment they give you looks good alot of the time when you turn a truck in to get fixed you get it back with the same problem and sometimes what they say your dedicated run will be is untrue because it is not fully thought out
I was home every night and weekends
As time went on more and more perks were taken away
Parts and Warranty (Current Employee) – Roaring Spring, PA – September 21, 2017
slow paced working conditions, low pay with a lack of premium management material in all departments. there is relatively no opportunity for advancement throughout company. business is family owned and operated and all major positions are filled by family members creating problems with all the issues I mentioned. there is a huge lack of emphasis on employees working in the shop and office next door, the truck drivers are constantly being awarded and constantly reminded how important they are which is true but all other employees are NEVER mentions and overlooked.

Working at Smith Transport was the greatest. They were all like family. You would have drivers come in off the road after a week and they would still have a huge smile on face. This company goes beyond GREAT. Leaving Smith due to the transportation 2 hours one way was the hardest thing I had to do. It was like leaving my second family. I still keep in contact with them.
