    I worked at CTL Transportation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I appreciated the opportunity to become a driver trainer, they gave me a lot of useful tools that came with the intercompany training.

    Cons

    Being a satellite terminal sometimes it felt like the office wasn't given the attention it needed in regard to equipment and information. They also took ten percent of our pay with the promise that it would be given back and it never was.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In my seven years with the company there were at least five different terminal managers, I cant help but wonder why, was it bad hiring practices or were they not given the support they needed from upper management.

    Pros

    a good place to get your initial truck driving experience with the opportunity to become a driver trainer with less than a year experience. Flexible work schedules. Many former employees who got their start with CTL go on to bigger and better things with other companies.

    Cons

    Good drivers are abused because they are asked to help out the slackers. There are almost no consequences for rule infractions other than wrecks so most people stop caring. Even experienced drivers are treated like new truck driving school graduates. Minimal manning, so the terminal manager and dispatcher don't have time to talk with employees or customers. Most terminals are in a state of disrepair with dirty bathrooms, old computers and minimal equipment. Even the terminal manager's furniture is threadbare. Low pay, so the turnover rate probably approaches triple digits. Very political, if you cross the line, you'll pay the price. No opportunities for owner-operators/lease operators.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some new blood to manage your terminals and take their advice even if it means firing some of the current crop of yes boys. STOP trying to micro manage everything from Florida and empower the terminal managers. If you aren't going to get off the golf course and invest a little time and money in the company, do us a favor and SELL the company. Maybe Kenan is still in the market to buy another tanker company.

    I worked at CTL Transportation as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    People are super nice......maybe a little too nice. The benefits don't seem to bad.

    Cons

    LOW pay. I was making .37cpm with my last company and these guys wanted to pay me less than what I was making at 6 months experience. I have 3 years experience. The recruiter was VERY pushy. Very nice but she called me at least twice a day. I don't think I will take the job. When I went for my road test the equipment was not old but it was an automatic truck and it was def. NOT a smooth ride. I would not feel comforatable driving one with liquid in the tank. Even the safety person who administered the test said he didn't like the way that truck drove. Overall...NOT impressed. I can find a job around here making 60k easy but this one only offered about 33-40.

    Pros

    a job if you really really need one

    Cons

    Bad pay, old wore out truck, job not as described. I was offered repayment of costs for truck driving school, a pay rate that was over stated, and a retirement plan. When I got there they said "OH" you just missed the date for repayment of school, your pay is 10% less then stated, and we had to suspend the 401(K). No medical insurance for like 3 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some new trucks!!!!
