OTR Dedicated Tractor-Trailer Driver (Former Employee) – Three Rivers, MI – August 8, 2017
The job it self is good but the management makes it horrible in the sense they have no loyalty towards their drivers and expect drivers to give their all. The management changes the pay and bonuses any time they feels like it, plus new people or those that stay in his rear end get miles.
Dedicated routes and pay when they want you to get it.

The 1's are angry ex employees that couldn't hang. This is a family environment job. You're home every other day for about 6 months. Home daily for the other 6. You stay in nice hotels. Not the Marriot but not a Motel 666. Usually They leave the lights on so the bugs don't come out. Great cheap BCBS health insurance, dental, vision after I believe 1 month. I pay approximately $275 for the entire family, 401k that they'll match up to 4.5 % if you put in 5%. 10 days of vacation after a year. 5 of which you can take after 6 months. 5 sick days. New trucks every 3 years. Automatic transmissions that are great in traffic. Detainment time after an hour of waiting. Never left stranded on the side of the road. .45 cents p/m I believe. Perhaps more for experience. Paid all your mileage weekly and .03 cents per mile bonus paid on the miles driven every quarter. All new companies have growing pain in the beginning but we've learned and adapted. Additionally there is extra money to be made if you work in the yard when needed. Average starting yearly full time salary is probably $50,000 and up. I work more so I make more. No touch, sit on your butt and go. Easiest OTR job out there. We have different runs all day and night.
If you’re not related to or besties with management then good luck to ya. They hired my boss’ boss’ wife to run things and because I shared my struggles in trying to deal with this new extremely high strung personality in our, what used to be chill low key, everyone helps one another and works together environment, I was asked to leave. I would have left eventually anyway But still. Keep your mouth shut till you have another job. >_<
It was a good first job and it gave me good experiences.

Walther farms was a positive work environment that gave good experience for those who are just starting to enter the work field. Although it is only open during the summer, those who cannot work during the other seasons, or those who have another job to attend to would benefit from it.
The pay is accurate at 39 cents a mile. They run you 6.5 days a weeks for a total of 3000 miles but only pay you for 2100miles and put the other miles in a "bank" that supposely pay you quarterly but last quarter guess who got paid their bank miles YOU GUESSED IT NOONE ! MANAGEMENT are all farmers who have no clue on how to run a transporataion business The dispatcher is a lier and disrespecful and hides it from his supervisor and will talk about you behind you back and smile in your face and lie on you to upper management to run loads for him. All the equipiment are being worn down management uses your "Bank miles " to fuel and half fix the trucks so they can keep their bonus. They will leave you on the side of the road for hours maybe a day or two home/life balance You can forget it KISS your family goodbye after signing on with them and i heard that the head of trasportation quit randomly you know this place sucks stay away!!!!!
