- P&S Transportation, LLC26.Jan 2016
Not that many perks to look forward to, but overall the people do make the difference.
Support from management
Dispaters really care about their drivers and strive to do whatever they can to make this job work for the drivers.
Some departments need much improvement. But the ones that really count seem to usually be on the ball.
Somewhat lacking overall, but there are people who really do listen, just not everywhere in the company.
Load planners do seem to occasionally play favorites, but over all they are fair. Drivers seem to be seen more often as a truck number in this industry, but at this company a good relationship with office personnel can make a difference.
Experience is required here. If you don't have much, trust me you will her it here.
Overall compensation for your work
Benefits are very poor here. You do get some fairly good medical, but there is no retirement, or holidays or sick time... no work no pay.
Office / Work Environment
Newer equipment in good condition. And when something special is needed for a load, you rarely get an argument about getting it.
The home time is always there when you need or want it. Family counts at this company.
The higher ups try to hold a great image of thecompany, but Iit hide the flaws poorly. Any driver who has been here at least a few months points out the cracks in the company regularly.
Keep the managers in the office happy and your wheels turning you will be here a long time.
Tools for flatbed work, yes.... maintaining your tools, well your on your own there.
Top priority PERIOD! If you say it's not safe, they back you up.
As with any flatbed carrier. Be ready for a challenge, if it's not weather or traffic, some of the load secure n't can offer an interesting challenge of their own.
Suggestions for improvement
- Make communication more clear and easy. Simply provide reference cards to drivers showing needed phone numbers. Improve maintenance communication and procedures.
What I like about the company
The people. That's the only thing that keeps me here.
What I dislike about the company
Severe lack of communication with needed driver support personnel.
