A severe do as I tell you not what you are trained to do.
Support from management
My supervisor refused to listen to me after the passenger called her about following company (supposed driving policy) I was accused of Road Rage Driving by a passenger. I was told by my supervisor to break company policy by asking crew IF I could speed up, to get out of perceived road conflict position.
Not so much
Freedom to work independently
Follow preset road routes in case you break down.
Summoned for jury duty in Texas, I filed for time of under the Jury Rule and was told it ONLY applied in Kansas.
Some personnel were picked over others.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Personnel hired, before the pennies per hour upgrade were not offered uniforms nor the upgrade new hires were given.
I was set up for failure by my 1st regional manager.
Overall compensation for your work
The company did not set up for expansion, when a new contract was secured.
I had to take time off to get personal time.
Not so much
If you thought outside the box you were challenged for it.
Inclusive / Diverse
Personnel hired before the pennies per hour upgrade were not offered uniforms nor the upgrade new hires were given.
Suggestions for improvement
- Have CBT training IN DETAIL not just a video to cut penalized paperwork mistakes by new hires.
What I like about the company
Initially it was OK, later not so much.
What I dislike about the company
The drivers are told you are required to take calls. Then when you do you were not supported during long distance trips. IE: Thanksgiving EVE I ended up in Louisiana with a fuel card that had not been updated despite several requests to have it updated during the return run.
Their company insurance was expensive and not that good. I did better finding my own policy.
