    I have been working at Beemac Trucking (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is not one I could think of except for newer trucks which are strapped to 2 natural gas tanks filled to 3600 psi.

    Cons

    Horrible company to work for. They tell you anything to get you in there when they need drivers then screw you in everyway they can. They tell you there is a $175 a day minimum but it is actually $150 a day minimum and honestly you will almost never make more than $175 a day. Your average day there is 13 hours of mostly loading and strapping all the longer hauls out of the plant go to veteran drivers so you can plan on loading and strapping 10 to 30 loads of pipe a day. My best pay week there I averaged 11 dollars an hour and that was the best week. They expect you to work every weekend and holidays. This company is nothing but a scab company for Tmk Ipsco keeping them from having to pay Union wages to there truck drivers. Unless you just graduated from a trucking school and need some experience dont even consider BEEMAC and I wouldnt honestly consider doing it then unless you had no other options left. Ive been driving truck for 20 years and I have never been lied to more or treated so badly. Also they run auto shift natural gas trucks pressurized up to 3600 psi. so you are literally driving a very hazardous machine for hardly any pay. Google truck accident on Rt 65 in Sewickley Pa if you want to know what happens with a natural gas truck accident.

    Advice to Management

    Hire new management. How can any small company go thru thousands of drivers in a few years and not consider something is wrong?

    Pros

    The local runs are 20 miles

    Cons

    Expect to be lied to, cheated out of pay. They will treat you good at first, until someone new comes along.

    I worked at Beemac Trucking full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They have great people in upper management. I would not hesitate to call the owner of the company if I needed something. The President and Vice President of the company al ways have time for the employee's that work for them

    Cons

    The home office is in Pittsburgh

    I worked at Beemac Trucking full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I can not think of anything good about this place

    Cons

    I was lied to from day one. It is your typical trucking company. You will work work six days a week 12 hour shifts and you'll average $400-$450 a week. You will not have a schedule, you will only be given 2-3 hours notice daily to tell you if you are working or not!

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to drivers!!!
