Definitely NOT the same company it was when I started.

Pros

Good equipment, like the APU's & inverters that are installed on trucks.

Cons

Company takes a "one size fits all" approach to dealing with drivers. Constant repeated nagging messages over the Qualcomm that get tuned out. Dispatches that don't have all required info such as temperature info & unclear pick up info (pick up numbers).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Tell customer service reps to get complete information (temp. requirements for example) for loads. STOP with the nagging, intelligence-insulting qualcomm messages. PLEASE turn off the 10 hour limit on APU/heat/AC usage (it's very annoying to be woken up in the middle of the night freezing or sweating because the climate control shuts off while we're asleep).

    Pros

    High miles. Good pay per mile. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Hard to get time off. Called back early too many times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make home time more manageable. Do not called it super regional. It is OTR.

    Culture of bullying and leading by fear

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Trust you hired good people and let them do their jobs
