    I have been working at Dart Transit Trucking full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    One thing I love about Dart is their eagerness and ability to recognize talent and where people would best be utilized. I believe this helps out people work efficiently and helps them make the most of their experience here.

    Cons

    Pay tends to be slightly lower than industry average, but who you work with a lot of times makes up for that. What really makes Dart wonderful is the people you surround yourself with.

    Advice to Management

    Consider increasing pay to outstanding employees to help retain them. You don't want to lose out on a great employee because they aren't being paid what they are worth and will get elsewhere.

    Pros

    Pay is ok serious about safety

    Cons

    Bad CSA score. You will be stopped at every weigh station!!!! Dart will hire you for one route then switch you to OTR with no notice You will not see home sometimes days without a load. Dart used to be good but now they don't care about drivers anymore!!!

    I have been working at Dart Transit Trucking full-time

    Pros

    Great training program,they took very good care of me. some of the trainers should not be allowed to train, they've been out here too long, loosing touch with reality. Kept me moving for the most part. Well maintained equipment. Sandy Villagran in Dallas was an awesome recruiter.

    Cons

    Those subpar employees in Sellersburg. It's as though they are a separate entity from the rest of Dart. They do whatever they want and will treat drivers like a second class citizen if you let them. The A Team doesn't investigate complaints from company drivers. You can call them, but they won't call you back.

    Advice to Management

    Fire everyone in Sellersburg, they are not a good representation of The Dart Advantage, they are in fact a disadvantage!!!!

    Pros

    Week day hours. Environment is good.Upper management is good.

    Cons

    Weekend rotation is horrible. Every 3-4 weeks your working a Saturday and Sunday. $$$ insurance. Low pay.

    Advice to Management

    Work on the weekend shifts. With all that is spent in extra hours to cover, a few FT folks could actually be added to address the issue. It may bring morale back up.
