Pros

I cannot think of a single pro

Cons

"Management" is reactive and fosters an unhealthy environment of blame. Senior people bully and get off on intimidating, make impulsive business decisions without a desire to understand the situation or consequences of their mandates. They frequently ILLEGALLY threaten to withhold employees' pay. They make promises with no intent to follow through, bamboozling naive employees into doing more with expectations of promotions and/or raises that will never come.

Marten Transport is a badly managed company that is destined for failure.

Advice to Management

Trust you hired good people and let them do their jobs

    Pros

    great job if you need something very short term.

    Cons

    INDY terminal has mechanics selling drugs to drivers, sleeping under trucks and guys who couldn't tell you what a dip stick is doing tractor inspections.

    Advice to Management

    Stop firing the people that know what they are doing and get rid of the ones that don't just cause they are your buddy.

    Pros

    all the staff at Desoto terminal

    Cons

    I was happy as a pig in new mud for 1 1/2 years at marten. no service failures, no problems. . was fired after 2 minor backing incidents with no notice and after being led to believe that a chewing out was the end of it. although I admit I was wrong and at fault I think I was treated over the top harshly.

    Advice to Management

    remember your dealing with peoples ( that's people as in human not numbers on a employee list) lively hood.
