I worked at P.A.M. Transportation full-time (More than 8 years)
The dedicated routes are great for home time if you can get onto one
There is a major lack of communication between the departments and management. I was employed by PAM for 9 years after they bought the trucking out that I had been working for. Pay was great for an experienced driver but they dropped it by over 20% with no warning for the dedicated routes. When I gave my 2 week notice (which I served out fully) my dispatcher didn't bother to notify anyone, night dispatch rang me up 2 days afterwards wondering when I was going to return to work because they thought I was simply on home-time. Thankfully I had it all in writing and on the qualcomm so couldn't be accused of resigning without notice.
Advice to Management
Improve the communication! Take care of your experienced drivers and start promoting from within more.
I applied online. I interviewed at P.A.M. Transportation (Springdale, AR).
First there was an initial phone screening. Then after passing that requirement, an actual interview was scheduled. Multiple essay questions were sent to me to complete beforehand.After arriving on site, I really got the impression the job was already filled before even posting it. People were rude and did not smile back. Complete waste of time. They did not go over what the job entails until I asked. The interview didn't even consist of actual questions. "Favorite class in college, Least Favorite" end of interview.
