Mission: At Mercer Transportation, our mission is to provide exceptional transportation service at a fair rate, through the best owner/operators and employees in the industry, making safety the priority in the movement of each and every load.
I have been working at Mercer Transportation full-time (More than 8 years)
Mercer is starting to act like a family again. Things changed for awhile and it seemed like they no longer cared about the employees. That has started to change. Truck Operations Management is more caring and approachable. This si the best HR department we've ever had. She gets things done and tries to always show the employees she cares. She's done things for employees that we have never seen. Favoritism seems to be a thing of the past although there are a few that maybe didn't deserve tehir positions. the pay and reviews is improving also.
it's hard to keep drivers with all the IT problems.If the system is down or not working correctly it makes our job more difficult trying to keep them happy.
Advice to Management
change IT. be patient with the older drivers that are learning the technology.
I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Mercer Transportation in May 2015.
Went in and spoke with 2 managers. One of them made me a bit uneasy but once I started talking to them I was fine. It was an average interview with your average questions. Long term and short term goals. Where do you see yourself in 10 years? Etc. I'm a very outspoken and blunt so I thought I wasn't going to get offered the job because of some of my responses but I got offered the job two days later.
