    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 (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good money and plenty of overtime opportunities. Great coworkers except for management and supervisors. Ridiculously high standards and expectations with job explanations.

    Cons

    No clear work direction. I've never worked for a company that management can judge jobs they don't even know and talk to employees with utter disrespect.

    Advice to Management

    Learn the jobs you manage and give people clear work direction with realistic expectations.

    I worked at Dart Transit Trucking (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was acceptable. Very hard to find anything else good to say.

    Cons

    Beware of this position due to the manager having no managerial, people or training skills. A real bully! Small team other 2 employees didn't even know I'd been hired until the day I arrived. Manager left it to them to train and they were not prepared. 30 day review manager advised I was on track. 30 days later, no feedback, I was told I wasn't progressing in training and let go. It wasn't just me she snapped at all of us when she spoke to you. Very unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    Be a fair company that provides proper training and feedback. Treat all with respect not just those you favor and family members.

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

    Pros

    I really like the flexibility in hours, friendly co-workers and positive management. I also like the management and HR have an open door policy, always willing to help and listen.

    Cons

    Need to be more clear as to where Driver's are to be parking, they use the company employee parking which makes it difficult for us to find something in a timely fashion.

    Advice to Management

    Do a little more for the employees, let people earn extra time off. Do events outside of work such as a bowling tournament.

    I have been working at Dart Transit Trucking full-time

    Pros

    Dart is a family owned company that treats there employees like family. I am a 16 year employee going on 17 and have been very happy with my employment at Dart Transit. Very good management and very good place to learn all aspects of the Transportation industry.

    Cons

    Is a very fast paced environment and the freight and driver environment changes quickly. You have to be on your game at all times to make sure that you are keeping up with the hourly changes in priorities. If you are a good Multi-tasker it shouldn't be an issue.
