    Pros

    They have a short contract compared to what I've heard other companies have. If you get a trainer who cares you can actually learn a lot

    Cons

    A lot of the driver managers are not competent Solo pay is very low and you can only get a raise after a year with the company which won't be very much

    Driver Manager

    Dec 17, 2015 - Driver Manager in West Jordan, UT
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    It's a job, not a career. If you can do something else, do it. Review the reviews before applying and good luck.

    Cons

    They will lie to you and promise you a lot of money 70k, but you will not see that all. The average DM makes about 40K a year if your lucky. Your pay is heavily dependent on the crazy bonus structure which is unattainable so don't think your going to make a lot of money. If drivers leaves the company or gets fired for no fault of your own, you lose some of your bonus. (Just FYI, the turnover rate for Truck Drivers at England is around 160%). So, basically they are losing Truck Drivers before they start training, good luck. The reason they lose some many Truck Drivers is because of the low pay and the Driver Managers pushing them because the Driver Managers are getting pushed by the Supervisors. If your Truck Drivers don't drive enough miles, you lose part of your bonus. As a Driver Manager you will manage up 30 drivers (New Driver Manager plan) and it is a 24 / 7 job. So the earlier post stating they have weekends off is not true at all. England will tell you, 7-4 is when you earn your salary, $33,000.00 while in training, $35,000.00 if you make out of training, and your bonus is earned before and after that. Basically if your willing to give up your life and work 24 / 7 this is the job for you. They will help you set up your personal phone and computer so you can work before and after work. You are considered a salaried employee, but they still make you clock in at work, except when you work the mandatory Saturday for 4 hours which you must do and then you don't have to clock in because it would show you working, I am sure it's a labor law issue, so they don't pay you more. Just remember this is a family owned and ran business so you have the people leading by example and sometimes the example they follow isn't always correct. PS, DM are hired weekly to replace other DM just like the Truck Drivers so your time will come.
