Current Employee - Truck Driver

I have been working at Marten Transport

Pros

Been in business a long time
I am on a dedicated route and almost always make it home for my 2 days off

Cons

Per Diem Pay is a pain
Night time dispatch are barely competant
New qualcomms stink
Shop guys at some terminals are not the greatest to deal with and dont always believe what you say is wrong with the truck

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make your shop guys a little more helpful, and make sure that dispatchers arent pushing the drivers beyond hours. Try to make sure that your drivers are getting paid closer to actual miles on a run.

    I have been working at Marten Transport

    Pros

    Could have decent equipment maybe

    Cons

    No regional unless you like driving anywhere east of I-35.... if you dont like rail loads which can take 6 hrs to get the load out, dont apply here... orientation is a lie, have to work here for 6 months or you pay for orientation which is around $700.00.... they dont tell u this till after orientation. ,.,,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit telling lies.... be truthful up front...

    I have been working at Marten Transport full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    As a fleet manager you work with some great drivers and some that are not so good. The job itself is fast paced and fun.

    Cons

    Office politics that is centered around who can kiss the most butt and the constant backstabbing of your fellow employees. The people that they have placed in leadership positions are not educated and they seem hostile to the newer hires who actually put in the work to get a degree. Instead of helping they try to belittle you and if you do not know your place you are quickly "not a fit" which is a joke. The company has so much potential but the leadership is ridiculous as far as your immediate supervisors. As far as upper management goes I did not have direct contact with them but the team leads are a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you truly want to do whats best for "Marten" then quit the ol Boy network mentality. whose butt you kiss is the one that makes you or break your career not the end result of your job. The team leads have experience in the industry but they have an innate ability to try to throw other people under the bus or to cuss them out when in fact it is a direct correlation to the training that you have given your employees. Place has potential but its a joke.
