I have been working at Marten Transport full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

they have decent equipment with all the bells and whistles, laid back attitude, very little lay over time and decent bonuses

Cons

they have lousy planners, constantly late loading then you have to run like an idiot. lousy support--good luck trying to contact road service--forced per diem--saving them about $.03 a mile

Advice to Management

fire all your planners

    I worked at Marten Transport full-time

    Pros

    Casual Dress, Decent Salary, Some outstanding drivers, operations staff working with you.

    Cons

    Stress, Supervisors and Coworkers chewing tobacco on the job, Poor Work Facility/ Location, Will rush you up higher duties on same pay. Accusations of Racism/ Cruelty from Drivers when the preplan just isn't there. Wouldn't recommend unless you specifically want to be in the Transportation Business.

    Advice to Management

    Find solutions to solve the problems that affect drivers instead of Sugarcoating. Its unnerving how much skill there is in manipulating drivers to complacency. claims are made that the industry has a shortage of drivers, while fleet managers get daily complaints about not having enough work.
