    I have been working at MV Transportation

    Pros

    New opportunities, great co-workers for the most part, learned a great deal of knowledge thus far, like my day to day duties and tasks

    Cons

    Benefits are horrible, no raises over past years, can't keep up with the increase in cost of living

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more aware of how your decisions to cut costs by slashing benefits affects your employees struggling to make ends meet without raises to combat the ever rising cost of living

    I have been working at MV Transportation (less than an year)

    Pros

    Gaining experience and learning a lot. Receiving a class b cdl with passenger and air brake endorsement.

    Cons

    Training was horrible, I had to ask my fellow drivers if I had a question and wanted it to be answered properly. My trainer spoke horrible english, and couldn't explain a freakin thing, he was incompetent and taught the trainees all wrong, and if you didn't understand him or was confused, or even made a mistake because ur new, he would get so mad! Couldn't even teach the newer drivers after me how to make a right turn on a gillig! We had 14 DRIverS in training and because of the instructor, 13 left... What's even worse is that a couple other drivers, including myself have not received my real cdl. I'm still using my temp license that's been getting extended every two months! I'm going to get to the bottom of this. I'm really grateful for the experience I gained with this company, but the supervisors are morons... And they pay so badly for the kind of work they give. You even work 6 days a week every week, 10-14 hours. Say good bye to life. Provide freeddom my...

    Pros

    Passenger Endorsement training, some good practice with experienced drivers.

    Cons

    Lack of professionalism in the training department. No concept of what standards are for training in a professional setting. However, the transportation industry is still in the dark ages with things like training, documentation ... also with the idea that you shouldn't yell at people at work!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your supervisors, manager and trainers. Some have no idea how to manage people in a respectful way. All that stuff in the employee handbook about respectful environment is lost on some.

    Pros

    Fast hiring process, "free" paid training.

    Cons

    Very low pay for huge responsibility. After 6 months the hourly wage goes to $11.30. After one year you get $13.65. With all of the responsibility, the starting pay should be no less than $15, and then this company would be able to get and retain good drivers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make starting pay $15/hour, at least after training. Show employees they are valued!

    Pros

    Sorry there is pro about this company

    Cons

    all top manager are quick terminated an employee for no reasons no matter how long you have been working there, unfortunately the HR manager are quick to sign the wrongful termination paper with out investigation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All termination should be investigated before signing the paper work and lose a good employees, so you don't have to waist money hiring too many people that will not stay in the company
