    Former Employee - Database/Computer Operator in Chattanooga, TN

    I worked at Covenant Transportation part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed meeting new people from the different area who where interested in driving for Covenant and setting up a database to activate for employment. There was always team work with my co-workers from the time an applicant was interviewed until hired. To be able to communicate with the drivers through system while on the road was interesting. The pay periods were weekly and the hours were ones that was within my schedule.

    Cons

    I didn't work long enough to complain about any of the benefits. I worked under no supervision and was able to work on schedule as needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everything seemed to be ok.

    They are willing to work with you.

    Sometimes you aren't given enough details on loads and questions, make sure you have a patient and well English speaking trainer!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You really need to reconsider having trainers that can not speak English that well.

    Pros

    New trucks for teams. Solos get very used ones. Lease trucks are worn out.

    Cons

    I had a lot of friends there whom have quit since I resigned because its no fun to work for them anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire back your veterans in Operation and get rid of your rookies who know nothing about trucking industry.

    Pros

    They treat you so bad that they will motivate you to get out of truck driving and finish college or learn another trade.

    Cons

    They put in roach motels (literally), they care nothing about the drivers, they hide behind Christianity to pretend the company is built on church morals but the management all behave wickedly. Too prove they don't care about drivers home-time I remember when they tried to team me up with somebody who lives in Miami, FL and I live in San Diego, CA. It's also a very racist, redneck good old boys club, I recommend all minorities to apply else where. I drove trucks for a lot of companies and this is the worse company I ever work for. Since then I have graduated from college and now working as a Operations Manager and on my Masters. Thx for the motivation Covenant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go kill yourself.

    I have been working at Covenant Transportation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay/mile. Plenty of miles, plus a 1 cent/mile safety bonus. I have a 5000 mile/week garuntee.but usually make more. I have had 2 8000 mile weeks in the last 30 days!

    Cons

    Seven weeks out seven days home equals one week out of eight. With out pay. Don't make alot untill you get your hazmat and prove yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some students need more training than they get.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, good folks to work with, consistent loads with good miles, flexible load planning.

    Cons

    Not enough home time! This is a great company if you don't have alot of home-life connections, but if you are family oriented, wouldn't recommend as a long-term career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your drivers! Work with them to get them home more often, more regular. You will keep MANY more of your top drivers longer if you can work with them on home time!
