I have been working at Groendyke Transport full-time (Less than a year)
Coming out of the oilfield to driving a truck was different. They tend to help me out with my on going family issues. Equipment for most part is in good condition.
Dispatch can be a joke. Don't know if they look at time or the fact do they know how fast we can drive. I should not be expected to do their job and my also. Would like to keep from having to dead head empty so many times. It's does not help me or Groendyke.
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Groendyke Transport (Granite City, IL) in January 2016.
Comfortable, Relaxed, Enlightened, Painless... Received the call from the terminal manager then we set the date to come to the office. Arrived to a warm welcome sat down and we started to converse.
He asked about Experience, Safety and what I was looking for in a company. I replied that I was the type to job jump if I was offered more money and that I'm looking for a safety conscious company to call Home. We completed the interview with my salary and start date.
This phase depends on your experience. The more you have , the more you can negotiate
