The railroaders that we worked with are awesome but the PTI management team was unprofessional in every level.
Support from management
This company is the rich stealing from the poor. They work people over time & do not pay them time & a half. Other employees & I had to take them to court to get our $. Of coarse they had to pay us our $. Even if it was 2 years later. But I'm a single parent & I needed my $ back when I earned it not down the road 2 years later.
The drivers work well together to make a team. They just need a better employer.
Freedom to work independently
Drivers are pretty much on auto pilot, so there is no leadership.
The dispatchers & drivers are worked very hard for very little pay. They can work together & make the best of their situation but the company of PTI does not care of their employees at all.
Attitude towards older colleagues
When I was a full in manager I hired seniors & there are more seniors there than a lot of companies. But they do not reward there employees well for longevity at all.
No opportunity's at this company. Don't waste your time. I wasted 3+ years because I loved the customers but should've moved on much sooner.
Overall compensation for your work
No Christmas bonuses, not a good wage, again they are the rich stealing from the poor.
Office / Work Environment
PTI continually tries to get employees to bend the DOT laws to suit their needs not the need of employees. It is very unsafe for the drivers, the customers, and anyone else that they meet on the highway.
PTI your management only cares for themselves not one driver or even a branch manager.
This is the only positive thing about this company.
I'd never heard of the company until I heard the ad about the job on the radio. I got the job & wishes I'd have kept looking.
The railroad never stops. Plenty of job security.
They provide extensions on seat belts for the really big drivers. But they call them & ask them to wait out in the middle of no where with no bathrooms available.
They do offer lots of driver safety classes & the railroaders want the PTI drivers to comply with traffic laws.
I loved working with the railroad but PTI want near enough challenging for me. Which is why I moved on.
Inclusive / Diverse
The general manager was bi polar so it depends on which day or mode the general manager is in.
Suggestions for improvement
- There is no hope. Find employment else where.
