What are perks and other benefits like at Sharkey Transportation?

Pros

The CPM pay is excellent

Cons

The Free benefits are worthless. The equipment is dangerous and unsafe. The maintenance team is lazy, poorly skilled, dishonest, and utterly useless. They will lie and cheat at every opportunity, and will put enormous pressure on you to break Federal and State regulations, to operate unsafe equipment, and to take unreasonable risks. The Federal Government needs to investigate these charlatans and put them out of business.

Advice to Management

Get your maintenance crews under control. Stop enabling them to cut corners and put people in danger. Stop lying and cheating and watch how much better you do. Take care of your terminals so they don't look like junk yards.

The Free benefits are worthless.

What is the retirement plan like at Sharkey Transportation?

Pros

Great pay and free healthcare.

Cons

VERY old equipment and maintenance that seems not to care either. I was told that If you pretripped your trailer and it was out of DOT inspection compliance that as long as you put it on the pretrip then Sharkey would pay your ticket! I have personally had to reject multiple trailers due to either the condition, DOT inspection out of date, or not even having a registration on the trailer. No retirement either. It’s like management figured out the best way to cut costs was to work drivers until they’re dead and there’s several elderly drivers way past 65 still driving there. Personally, I think that’s because there’s no where else to go since they probably have many DOT failures and no pension. Sad!

Advice to Management

Wake the owner up and get in to get rid of the piles and piles of crap all over. Also, don’t leave your tagged (rejected) trailers sitting at your costumers lots, it really dies look bad. Quit being such a cheapskate!!!!!!

No retirement either.
