    Wilsonville dispatchers???

    Truck Driver (Current Employee)
    Wilsonville, OR

    ProsI like being able to take time off to help my folks out. (they are in the 70's & 80's) I appreciate their equipment, it is top notch. And most of the other drivers are friendly enough.

    ConsI drive western regional. I am dispatched out of the Wilsonville terminal. I have found most of the dispatchers there arrogant and belittling towards me and other drivers. They talk negatively about the drivers and treat you as if they are better than your are. When they do, do their job they act as if you owe them for doing you a favor. When you need to get hold of someone in Wilsonville no one answers the phone. Ask them to call you in a message over the QUALCOMM and they never do. Not one time have anyone of them called me even when I was broke down and trying to find out what to do after calling road service. (who are great) When they ask for a favor they rarely compensate all they promise. The arrogant better than anyone attitude is a real turn off. I am considering a change.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDrug test all Wilsonville dispatchers. You might be surprised.

    Good Overall Experence

    OTR Driver (Former Employee)
    Knoxville, TN

    ProsThey actually pay for detention. You usually know how much before you leave the shipper/receiver. Good Equipment. Good miles. Get you home when they said they would IF you give them 2 weeks notice like they ask.

    ConsSleep machine if you fail their sleep test takes time to get use to (But I hate to admit it, it helped me get better rest). Having to get truck and trailer checked every time you go to a yard (but they are kept up). If you go to CA, you usually have a days wait to get a load out (but I have had that problem with other companies too). No Prepass.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet the Prepass system. Don't start training for new drivers, keep hiring experienced drivers.
    Raise the mile rates. Use mapquest for paid miles. in this day of computers, address to address is more fair when paying the drivers and charging the customers on your end too.

    OTR Regional Driver (Current Employee)
    North Atlanta, GA

    ProsHigh miles. Good pay per mile. Great benefits.

    ConsHard to get time off. Called back early too many times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake home time more manageable. Do not called it super regional. It is OTR.

    Good solid company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsHigh wattage installed inverters, generators, bunk ac/heating. Decent pay and now instant hourly pay for those shippers that like to make us sit at a dock for 14hrs. Management seems to be aware of what brings home the bacon and consequently takes better care of its drivers than any other trucking company I have been with.

    ConsEasy to get a bad reputation if you stand up for yourself with abusive customers or DOT officers. Dispatch and load planners need to understand there are some serious jerks out there messing with us truck drivers constantly. Young dispatchers need to know that we are working long hours away from home constantly with all of the responsibility and almost no authority. Pushing productivity to the max tends to put a bunch of stress on us and consequently we tend to be a bit grouchy at that point. Some dispatchers/load planners get that and make this job tolerable but those few that don't can make life a misery.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThanks for the pay increases, the nice truck equipment, not requiring us to chain, and helping us deal with the people out here who do their utmost to make life miserable. An offer of a 3 day local work week plan would allow me to have a life, wife, and family ; ) (36hr work week over three day)

    I loved Marten Transport!

    Inter-modal Driver (Current Employee)

    ProsMarten cares about their customers and employees equally. They do what is right for everybody in a professional way.

    ConsI wish they would give me another chance to prove that I was as committed to them as they were to me during my medical treatments.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRandy, I would only offer the advice to examine your work comp department because I think drivers that worked well but got injured are being mistreated.

    Satisfied

    Truck Driver (Current Employee)

    ProsOpportunities for career advancement, Truck Driver, Fleet Manager, Senior Management or just entry level office positions.

    ConsDepends on the fleet manager you get, that they will give you a balance to provide stable income while being on road and provide ample home time for you and your family. There are several Fleet managers that really don't care about the drivers, self-centered management, as long as they get their check and they get off work at the time they are suppose to, they just don't care. Let me say that all fleet managers aren't like that though.
