    Cons

    Road Service needs more people not telling driver theres only two person to handle breakdown issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More people needed to work in Road service during nite shift to cater for drivers instead of waiting on phone.Macro s should be sent directly to road service than to dispatch which get sent to road service.Time is money.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Marten Transport in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Process was easy and thorough. Orientation was fun and informative. When I had questions they were answered without delay and with all the information I would need to make informed decisions. Orientation was set up similar to a classroom. The paperwork was minimal and not difficult. Questions were answered knowledgably. The accommodation and transportation were a bonus in my book. I was treated with dignity and respect through out the entire process. I was given all the information I needed prior to arriving for orientation which made thing go very smoothly. The interviewer explained that I would need my CDL, passport, and social security card. Their attitude towards me was warm and friendly, welcoming. During my interview I felt welcome and am very glad that Marten Transport hired me.They flew me to pick up my first truck so much better than a Greyhound bus. (THANK YOU) I have had some challenges but over all if you keep a cool head things work out. I would and do recommend Marten Transport to friends and other drivers from other companies. Overall my hiring and interview process was a very positive experience.
