    Not a bad company to work for but you should have an open and flexible schedule as it changes frequently.

    I worked at MV Transportation part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Company does a good job with the training, re-training, reviews etc. Supervisors, Road Supervisors, and Coworkers are encouraging and nice. Trainers are excellent.

    Cons

    My approved weekly schedule was never honored and I was hired with the false impression that they would work with my school schedule as I was a student. You only get your schedule for the next day by 10pm, so when it doesn't match what your approved schedule is (due to either school or another full time job) you have to wait the next day to either call in or maybe even come in late because your taking night classes until 9:30pm and are scheduled to work at 4:45am.

    You have to sign papers when this happens, so it makes you look unprofessional and irresponsible, despite the fact that it is because your work schedule keeps changing on a daily basis (even if they agree and approve your schedule for certain hours). I personally did not get enough sleep for my classes nor did I have enough for driving, which is not safe.

    If you have an open and flexible schedule then you probably will not run into this problem. However, if you are hoping to take classes or have another job, it might be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My only suggestion would be to try to be more flexible in working with students schedule and those who have another job. The company has a high turnover and if you would like to keep your good drivers and the time invested in training them, try to work with and honor their schedules.

  2. It's ok not best job to have. I'm still looking for better opportunities

    Pros

    Reasonable pay, 401 retirement plan, good advancement possibilities.

    Cons

    Health care is very expensive especially if you have kids to cover. Job can be stressful at times when there is a lot of work to get done in one night.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work load needs to be spread out little better between employees. Company provided tools could be in better condition, other company required tools still need to be bought for the shop to help complete tasks more efficiently.

    Helping people with disabilities. . Meeting people, learning new places. Being responsible for others unknown to you and they trust you to get them to and from their destinations.

    Pros

    No real possibility of promotions. I think it is due to the nature of the business. However, the benefits were satisfactory, and the schedule was flexible.

    Cons

    Safety training sessions were provided yearly or at any time there was a need.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more attentive and pay the employees for the hard job they do.
