Great Place For Reliable, Hard-Working Fuel Hauler’s!
Former Hazmat Tanker Driver - Fuel Hauler (Former Employee) –  La Vergne, TNNovember 15, 2018
The Nashville terminal was the best terminal to work for! You couldn’t ask for a better terminal manager; he has your back, period. The senior driver-trainer is a man who you can count on!

The work schedule is as to be expected as a fuel hauler. The equipment is well maintained. Safety is paramount to all else.

Whether you’re a new driver or a veteran, Star is a company you’ll love.

Every company has those former employees who denigrate their employers; the man makes his job, while those who complain quickly find themselves any reason to quit.

Star will take care of those who take care of Star!
Pros
A real fuel hauler’s dream
Cons
Dealing with people who aren’t dedicated workers

The pay could have been better for the type of work you do and the regional manager outta the Memphis Tennessee area is straight up trash. Other than that everything else was good

Not a good place for hauling fuel
Fuel driver (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNMay 3, 2019
The manager will tell you one thing then when you start it is another company constantly lies. Dispatch doesn’t know what they are doing. They will work you until you have nothing left in you and don’t care about your family family owned but not family with there own drivers that run there company smh. Do not go to this company low pay and low management, also you can’t make over 60,000 unless you work 6 to 7 days

Just a comment or thought.
Driver (Current Employee) –  JACKMSMarch 18, 2019
As a manager I am very satisfied with Star as an employer. Good drivers and dispatchers are hard to find. Sometimes dispatch does not do enough coordination with the drivers. Dispatch operates on a crisis mode with their reason is “Do you want a store to run out.” If anyone at star wants a store to run out they should be terminated. If dispatch does not get their way, the driver or me are not a team player. Good Dispatchers are like good drivers they are hard to find. Better training would be helpful and sometimes listening to a driver might be helpful.

Driver (Current Employee) –  RGVMarch 18, 2019
Too many dead head miles, too much favoritism, don't agree to the yearly raise everyone should start at same pay scale. How about some kind of Bonus system something to look forward to, Supervisor involved with dispatch too much and self dispatch. That's how I feel

Working for Star
Driver (Current Employee) –  ABILENMarch 18, 2019
Working at Star Transportation has been very good. Most days are fairly easy with short trips not to far from home base. The management is easy to get along with and my coworkers are easy to work with. It's an easy job with little stress.

Driver (Current Employee) –  MidlandMarch 18, 2019
Typically i don’t have many problems with work. The pay is fair other than pump offs that require more time finding the location and more work, they only pay $12.00 extra for what usually ends up being a lot more stress and labor than that of is gravity off load. The managers are good and dispatch is usually good.

Driver (Current Employee) –  RGVMarch 18, 2019
It's a good place to work. The only thing that they have to do, is they have to reevaluate the rates.
Other then that the customers we take care of are awesome.

Great company
Driver (Current Employee) –  TYLMarch 18, 2019
The only thing I would change is the speed limiters on their trucks. 65 mph puts me in more danger not being able to pass or takes way too long. Drive interstate all day every day and still limited to 65 mph. Pay and benefits are great and can't complain about anything else.

Star is a very Saftey and family oriented company.
Driver (Current Employee) –  ANNIMarch 18, 2019
Star is a very Saftey and family oriented company. The management is solid and very consistent, and always available to support and lead you to become the best and safest you can be. I have been a night driver many years and the programmers and especially night dispatch are some of the best I have ever worked with. This can be a very stressful job sometimes and it’s always good to know there is always good leadership and support if and when it is needed.
