    Former Employee - OTR Driver in Black River Falls, WI

    I worked at Millis Transfer full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They were honest and upfront with me. Pay always came on time. Safety bonuses every quarter. Decent miles 2500+ wk. Equipment is no more than three years old and well maintained.

    Cons

    The OTR lifestyle is not for everyone. Some dispatchers dont communicate as well as others. Many new changes coming such as cameras and forced routing and anti-idling programs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to keep drivers #1 because they are the ones out away from their families trying to make a living.

    I worked at Millis Transfer full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Trucks are pretty good. Not much more to say.

    Cons

    Spy cams on your trucks. Camera always watching driver in cab. Pay not that great. Training sucks, dispatch and upper treat you like crap. Their no better than any other truck company, they lie too. Health insurance is a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get over yourself. Your not the big dogs I the trucking Industry. Your a little outfit.

    Current Employee - Class A Truck Driver in Black River Falls, WI

    I have been working at Millis Transfer full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Everything from schooling to training to the actual job was exactly as they described on their website, over the phone, and in person. They training is cheaper then typical schooling, and the terms are very fair. The training gives you all the tools you need to begin your career as a Class A truck driver. The pay scale is above average for a new driver. They get you home when you want to be home.

    Cons

    Being away from home for long periods of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. More terminals more places would be ideal to open up more regional opportunities.

    I have been working at Millis Transfer full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    good mileage, new or newer equipment, mgmt not continually on drivers' backs about every little thing, no problems with hometime -

    Cons

    high deductible/out of pocket on health insurance (but I've also seen much higher), no pet policy, no APU (espar heater - good in winter not so much in summer), mgmt complains to fleet about idle time but doesn't seem to be particularly concerned with fuel mileage based on tire selection, trans/rears selection - many smaller things to lessen total fuel cost

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    try fuel mileage bonus instead of idle bonus - maybe give drivers back 25% of the money they save on fuel compared to mpg basis for surcharge; allow pets with small weekly charge to cover cleaning expense - possibly refundable if driver stays in truck until traded in. Keep up work in making terminals/service better - you're doing very good in that area.
