    I have been working at Dart Transit Trucking full-time

    Pros

    Here are the pros. First off as a Driver you have off the weekends that's a plus, and if your a hard worker and do your job you can ask for a additional day off during the week here in there. Company drivers are treated like Owner Operators and I love the feel of that. The trucks are fairly nice if you get a good one. The mileage rate is fair, the benefits are also good. The fleet mangers are there to help you when needed, as long as you keep in good contact and try to build a relationship with him or her.

    Cons

    Detention pay is very hard to get, sometimes you do sit for hours at a D/C. They tell you that you will get it but you have to stay on top of them. The mileage pay could be alittle a bit more. I have 13yrs exp, and some drivers have 6 months and are making more than me. For the worst problem here at Dart, are the trailers. The trailers are brand new for the most part but the shortage is bad. Sometimes you will spend have a day driving around looking for one, which will eat up your hours. Dart has order alot of new trailers we're just waiting and waiting on them too arrive.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your Exp drivers as well as those just starting out. I appreciate everything you are doing and hope the new trailers arrive quickly, we are in need of them down in texas badly. Thks

    Advice to Management

    Really nothing much to say here. Everyone is great. They make it a great place to work. They have taught me so much through out my 15 years there.

    Pros

    Benefits, nothing else to speak of

    Cons

    They have no freight or just mediocre freight very little long haul. When they do have freight there is no trailer to put it in.The dispatch at dart doesn't care about the drivers as they get paid regardless.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your drivers not college students. Stop firing your best people to save a dollar.

    I worked at Dart Transit Trucking full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company is family-owned and has that feel to it. The people working there are generally very nice and fun to be around. The HR department tries hard to motivate staff but it is difficult with little funds.

    Cons

    There is little room for advancement. Employees there 10+ years are not valued. They would rather hire someone new at a lower wage than promote or advance from within. It is all about the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Spend less time worrying about how much $ you are making for yourself and more time developing talent.

    Pros

    Good people If you find the right folks you can problem solve effectively Culture of taking care of our contractors.

    Cons

    Mediocre to poor mid level leadership (it was commonplace for me to be "counseled" by my manager by email with my entire group copied in) Compensation is low. They have this goofy "compensation chart" that they show every employee during their annual review to show them their "true" compensation (vacation days, benefits, etc...) That's great, but everyone gives out benefits, show me the money honey. Need to work on reducing the influence of some of the "crusties" who seem to think that they are entitled to anything because they have been there so long. Some of these guys/gals do not know what they are doing, and are often counterproductive.

    Advice to Management

    Need to focus on training and developing your leaders. Dart has mid-level leaders that are all over the map in their management style, with some that are totally incompetent.
