Driver/Delivery (Current Employee) –  Jal, NMAugust 6, 2018
This job is well worth the away from home status since it offers 7 days off each month if you choose to take it. The only complaint is with recruiting and it’s pretty much across the board with recruiting. Most drivers who was recruited by Wages was disappointed with the lie he continue to express with actual pay per week. Every driver I spoke with said he told them the same exact thing and that’s “ Drivers average $2500-$3000 a week”. When in fact 85% of the drivers only averages $1500-$2000 a week. On some occasions a driver might have a good week and do $2500-$3000 and honestly I only saw that happen once or twice a month. But $2000 is a constant week pay if most things go as planned and your able to do about 5 loads a day. Getting 5 loads a day can be challenging in itself, but your getting it straight from the field not the recruiter. So with the truth said it’s a good company to work for and like most businesses it will have there faults. Some trucks are new and some are not, no company will have all new equipment in this type of environmen...just deal with it. At $2000 my salary has doubled and I’m saving $6000 a month on the purchase of my new home in a year. So come with a open mind and dedication to work safely, that’s all they ask of you.
Pros
Pay, Driver Relation, Benefits, Hometime every month 👍🏾
Cons
Not in a position to list, I deal with the obstacles 😉

Recruiting Manager (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 29, 2018
Nothing bad to say about the company or the opportunity. The opportunity is there to succeed if you apply yourself. Strong management and great corporate customers.

I looks AMAZING on paper.

Once you're on the field is a different story. Bad equipment, management don't care, recruiters sucks, no one has an answer for YOU.

This company Xcalibur is not interested in your safety
Crude Oil Driver (Former Employee) –  JAL NMMarch 8, 2018
This is the worst company I ever worked for; DOT AND EPA would have a field day at the Xcalibur JAL, NM location.

First thing I saw was the broken I-Pads; this is what you are to use to keep track of loads and getting your assignments, kept cutting my fingers (great for a new person to see on first day)

Slip seating, no one wants to take care of trucks and you are not going to make the money they are telling you. Due to drivers are set on 12 hour shifts and that’s if they get back in time and not taking a last load to cut your day.

Training is half of what you need to know because of the equipment not working properly.

And 7-9 trucks and trailers down for maintenance, out of 15 trucks, tires are not replaced as they should be, miss matched drive tires, steer tires not replaced, guess they are waiting till they blow, fenders are about to fall off, trucks are in very bad shape, hydraulic systems leak or not hooked up to work, basic testing equipment is missing or not working and dirty compartments for holding supplies and fittings, cracked fifth wheels cross bars or base and most of what do as an pre or post inspection ETC.

Not sure if they even do basic oil changes and engine test, because the trucks mostly had check engine lights on, and had to keep adding oil to trucks.

Turnover rate is high, had one mechanic lasted 2 days, left because he did not want to lose his DOT rating as a mechanic.
Supervisor left after 5 days and others 7 drivers left, 5 went to company next door and 2 went to another company in the area.

Drivers are leaving weekly, probably
  more... after what they see, (depending on their experience in oil or driving) or what will happen in the near future.

Xcalibur is due for a bad spill, lack of maintenance on equipment and drivers loading 196 BB days and nightly. Trucks are fixed (adjusted) to keep them on the road, basic care of trucks is on a scale of 1-10 maybe 2-3, and maintenance is bad.

This company Xcalibur is not interested in your safety (driver seats need replaced safety belts are frayed and need replaced), they want the trucks on the road and loading at all cost before they spend any money on fixing the equipment.

Crude Oil Driver (Former Employee) –  Carlsbad, NMSeptember 26, 2017
Overall not a good place to work. Everyone cuts corners to move oil and the management knows and under the table supports it. Till you mess up then management will get rid of you. Equipment is horrible and maintenance is worse. Drivers rag out trucks and it's worse cause you slip seat. Turn over rate is extremely high. Last 6 month and your the veteran driver! Pay is average for the industry.
Pros
Health insurance is very affordable.
Cons
Equipment, maintenance, training sucks, very disorganized
