Poor management to say the least. No office breaks besides lunch. You have to belong to the family to get anywhere. No help from any departments forget if you have a question to be answered they will not answer the phone or email. Several people in and out of the office all due to poor management. Constantly belittled and harrassed by upper management. Lawsuits waiting to happen here
While the terminal is a bit far from my place, my driver manager makes it work. I get home often enough for my liking and the pay isn't bad. The small company culture makes it worth it for sure - I get to speak face to face with my dispatcher and people take me seriously, which I appreciate.
Do you enjoy working at your company?
Every work experience is unique. Tell us about yours. Rate your employer.
When you start out; it's a great place. Friendly staff and great miles. But over time, you get lack of miles, when the equipment needs new parts or is leaking; they don't have the parts or stuff isn't available. Can't idle the trucks at all, so when it hits -60 degrees, you nearly freeze to death. The operations manager is nice to your face; but once your back is turned, he trash talks you to anyone who will listen. Just like usual, Recruiters only make false promises to get you into their classroom; was supposed to lease the truck I drove; but never did. After awhile, they wanted to yank me out of the truck I was in, and place me into a different truck because I didn't "meet their mileage requirements for lease purchase"; yet they were the reason I didn't meet the requirements. Would not recommend, but that is my personal opinion.
Nice Trucks to a point, Nice hotel you stay out, convenient terminal location
Bad Office Staff, backstabbers and liars (but that is with most companies)
Call some local merchants about Waller ... A local merchant told me that three new drivers had arrived and they were probably going to leave like everyone else leaves Waller ...without being paid Waller reportedly had gone bankrupt at least once for certain and possibly twice Waller is not the billionaire managers will tell you. They live in a modest home ... and the pay is horrible. Won’t be paid for picking up empties and many people abandon their vehicles because they’re not being paid. They will send you up with a driver to pick the vehicle up and it will stink inside and have smelly everywhere because they didn’t get paid and they knew they weren’t going to get paid ... Some ... Really strange middle aged women will come in to the lounge ... turn the TV down so they could relax. They were very plain and leathery and rude. Waller is a terrible place to work. Stay away from there
They lie pay sucks tell you one thing to get you over there and do the total opposite of what was discussed in the beginning to many dispatcher's and none of them work together this is not a family place like they claim to be worst place ever go somewhere else not this place they are big fat liers.
Good company to work for , drivers could use a raise due to cost of living increases, company needs to expand lanes of freight to ga,ca , az,area, if going to have a successful lease program lease drivers need to be running 7 days a week to achieve the goal of 3 to 4000 miles per week, need to stretch the trucks out over the higways,
They let you go if you miss more than 7 days of work for any reason. My mother had a Stroke i was told if i didn't return back to work on the 7th day i would be terminated. They're always saying freight is slow the last 3 weeks i worked i didn't get but 1200 miles a week.
Safety and night dispatcher are unprofessional there were customers where you will be expected to come in contact with " lead " with no given protection. Also had to use my own credit card to check into the hotel this company uses even for tractor breakdowns No professional courtesy at Waller
It's a three letter word j-o-b
Don't expect to be treated as a professional
They walked all over you and hid from the drivers up stairs so they would not have to talk to them, Because the drivers where not aloud up stairs. They had you work over and not want to pay for it. Always talk behind your back, Not a friendly place at all. They never took the phone calls from drivers or concerned people that would call in. I always had to send to voice mail.
Waller truck is a fairly good company to work for. A typical day included picking up or dropping trailers at customer sites. The company was a good place to learn the trucking industry.
There are some management personnel that need to be dismissed
good place to work staff is friendly good work evironment,this is a regional company and work only applies to you living in there area,so if you are from another state except to be out 3 weeks to a month before getting home time. So if you are a road warrior this is the place for you tell them i sent you.
Pro's Your treated with respect by other's who are just making a ch like u. Your home more weekends then not. Top notch equipment. No running illegal, very strict on hrs of service. Neg's Low miles (Great for older drivers that are established). 50% drop and hook. Off major freight lanes a lot, taking time away from you. No Pre-Plans till assign ld is complete. Dispatchers have to many drivers. Trucks 65mph with newer trucks dropping speed down to 63 mph if you don't follow their how to be a good driver plan. Fuel solutions far from it. No health insu for spouse. No blue beacon truck washes. No holiday pay. Mattress issued out is like sleeping on a floor. Truly terrible a dog bed is softer.
My son who had a kidney transplant 4 months ago was fired just a couple of weeks after he started this job. And left without a ride home to Lincoln,KS from KC and no money from them to get him there. Had to find someone who was willing to make 6 hour round trip to pick him up! Completely ridicilous and they need to be sued! TERRIBLE TERRIBLE PLACE! BEWARE OF UNSCRUPULOUS WORKPLACE!
They tried hard to get you home every weekend, if you wanted. Got good miles, at a fair rate. Trucks were never more than 4 years old, and the maintenance was as good as you wanted it to be, never hassled about getting something fixed. The reason job advancement is low is that you have to quit the company to even have a chance at getting a local run where you are home every night. Otherwise, your only "upgrade" path is to Owner/Operator, where you get no help on how to run a business, take care of needed taxes, paperwork, and such. Better off just staying a company driver really.
Home most weekends, good equipment
The typical ones associated with driving a big rig.
