Former Employee - OTR Driver in Knoxville, TN
Former Employee - OTR Driver in Knoxville, TN

I worked at Marten Transport full-time (more than a year)

Pros

They actually pay for detention. You usually know how much before you leave the shipper/receiver. Good Equipment. Good miles. Get you home when they said they would IF you give them 2 weeks notice like they ask.

Cons

Sleep machine if you fail their sleep test takes time to get use to (But I hate to admit it, it helped me get better rest). Having to get truck and trailer checked every time you go to a yard (but they are kept up). If you go to CA, you usually have a days wait to get a load out (but I have had that problem with other companies too). No Prepass.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get the Prepass system. Don't start training for new drivers, keep hiring experienced drivers.
Raise the mile rates. Use mapquest for paid miles. in this day of computers, address to address is more fair when paying the drivers and charging the customers on your end too.

    A very stressful environment. A company more interested in its problems than the solutions.

    Pros

    You learn how to take your job too seriously. You learn how to fire employees for nothing.

    Cons

    Horrible at taking care of their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your office employees as much as the drivers.
