What is the company culture at Raven Transport?

Pros

I have over three years past experience with this company.. I am a recent rehire. Not many pros. The mileage pay is in the upper 15 to 20% of the industry. They have to use a large sign on bonus to get people to come on which is a red flag. I live in Jacksonville so I chose them to try to manage my home time . Long story short I can't come up with any more pros.. I live here and the terminals close to my house .

Cons

They have an LNG truck fleet that is giving them fits to place drivers in them since the truck performs erratically and is dangerous to drive because of the inconsistent throttle response. While the mileage pay is high the mileage average is low and the two don't work well together to provide a good income. Dispatch used to be more than courteous and helpful and assist drivers. My recent experience shows me driver managers would rather talk and play with drivers with the messaging then actually assist them to be efficient and attempt to help them in their already difficult job. Based on this recent experience I am already submitting my resume for other jobs.

Advice to Management

I've shared advice with management and was scoffed . The company was purchased by FEC railroad from Steve Silverman who birthed this company in its present form and size with integrity and character. Another entity purchased the company from FEC and they seem be only interested to maintain a footprint to support their railroad company and other interests.
