    I have been working at Haney Truck Line full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Better pay is coming, better bonuses for those who work for them, new trucks and trailers are replacing old ones.

    Cons

    New pay for performance program is difficult to understand for most. When you sit down and look at it, things begin to make sense but the announcement at the Safety Meeting was a little confusing at times.

    Advice to Management

    Explain your new program more. I understand it only because I took the time to ask questions but others are having a hard time seeing how all of this will benefit them.

  5. Work was year round but disorganization of dispatch and upper levels make work slow.

    I have been working at Haney Truck Line full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Willing to take a "new" driver right out of school. Good way to get some miles under you.

    Cons

    Pay is meager at best. Hourly pay is available but work on mostly a "good-ol-boy" system. You really have to know someone to get on hourly. Lots of sitting waiting on dispatch and most loads are dispatched after they were supposed to be delivered.

    Advice to Management

    A total revamp of the dispatch system is necessary. No one person has an answer for the driver, there is always a "let me get back to you" attitude and answer given.


  6. I'll be surprised if Haney is still around in 2015.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, challenging. Ships try hard to keep up

    Cons

    Drivers get good mileage rate but spend huge amounts of time sitting and waiting for operations to make decisions. No pay for waiting and it doesn't matter how much the mileage is if you aren't running. New management doesn't understand regional work. Revolving door in operations and throughout the company so few with experience. Equity group owned and equity group run. The new management puts on a good front that they want to know opinions but they do it only as a feel good measure. Opinions aren't valued unless it agrees with their opinion. Turnover for drivers is horrible and they push as many into orientation as possible instead of keeping good drivers. Promises of new equipment not followed through on. Breakdowns happen. Way too often because they keep trying to put garbage back on the road. Coffin sleepers that you have to live in for 5-10 days at a time or linger if they forget to bring you home. On time delivery was horrible and lots customer complaints and loss of customers. Rumor has it another BIG customer has had enough and will be making a change. Raises given to those who kiss up but not to those who deserve it.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to the employees, we know what you are doing. Sell to someone who knows what they are doing before you mess it up so bad that the employes all lose their jobs.


  7. Management doesn't care about the drivers.

    Pros

    At least they offer health insurance and direct depost for your paycheck. Truck maintainence is good with the shops well equiped for repairs.

    Cons

    No regular work schedule. If you have hours you're expected to be available to dispatch. Trucks are underpowered for the loads. Trailer pool too small to service the customer base. Poor trailer maintainence.

    I have been working at Haney Truck Line full-time

    Pros

    Well established regional company. Have some good customers.

    Cons

    Every time you turn around someone else is getting let go. No stability in any management position. Revolving door at the top level. No true or consistent routine. Promises for "new equipment". Refuse to buy anything for drivers and yet are adding office staff and executives all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Figure something out and stop firing, retiring and letting go the good people. Need to hire some competent people in operations.

    I have been working at Haney Truck Line full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good work-life balance in general. The company is also starting to buy new equipment, which is always a plus. The people at the company are generally good to work with.

    Cons

    Weekend work is starting to be required. A great many of those who work at Haney chose this company so they would not have to work on weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes you can lose dollars by trying to save pennies.

    I worked at Haney Truck Line full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Accurate pay settlements. Nice Terminal facility, Quall comm is usually reliable, Shop employees well informed, helpful. Trailers in fair to good condition.

    Cons

    Low mileage pay, unattainable fuel bonus, worn out equipment.(tractors high mileage 600,000) Driver managers take down everything you say, instead of trying to keep you moving. Shift starts Sun eve and ends early Saturday, gets to be a grind.

    Advice to Management

    Share with drivers the fuel bonus protocol. so it's not a mystery.
