    I have been working at Diversified Transportation Services full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great company to work for starting with upper management to the ownership trickling down to its supporting staff. Their success of over 25 years is indicative of how the business is run, how it's grown over the years, and the forecast for its longevity.

    Cons

    No more about the Carmack Amendment during the monthly Sales meeting.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at Diversified Transportation Services as a contractor (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    In sales you make your own hours and allowed the ability to direct business where it needs to go. I have worked with a number of both carriers and brokers over the years and DTS has been the only company that actually pays me without having to repeatedly request payment.
    DTS also allows me to act as a agent to benefit the customer and they take the attitude that if you do what is fair and just your customer will appreciate that and stand by you.
    The overall staff are really nice people and I appreciate their manners and professionalism.

    Cons

    The software they utilize is for the most part very user friendly but has limits in it's capabilities that require Operations staff to become more involved than they should have to be for some of what should be less labor intensive operations.
    While low employee attrition is not normally a negative, it does limit the ability to move up in the company as an employee. The opportunities as a sales consultant are limited only by your own work ethic and tenacity to excel.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the staff to get out and visit customers with sales reps so they have a better understanding of what we do and have sales reps sit with office staff to give sales reps a better understanding of the pressures they encounter.

    I have been working at Diversified Transportation Services (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Overall solid company to work for, big enough to make an impact but small enough to care. Great industry/job training to provide employees the best opportunity to succeed. Office atmosphere is friendly and business casual. Many employees have been with the company for many years. DTS has its own transportation management software that is cutting edge for the industry.

    Cons

    Sometimes the communication between management and staff can be delayed.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push technology to increase customer loyalty and to stay relevant in a world where technology is always getting better.

    Management needs an overhaul.

    I worked at Diversified Transportation Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Small company. Friendly atmosphere. Good benefits. Autonomy. Bonus program for hitting monthly revenue threshold.

    Cons

    Frozen salary 7 years. No upward mobility. Not busy enough for me

    Advice to Management

    The company will need to evolve if it to remain ahead of the fierce competition. Or else it may get absorbed by a larger 3PL and become obsolete.

    Pros

    They give you the ability, tools, and freedom to make smart business decisions with regards to bringing on new business. Sales Consultants can do very well, if they are dedicated to taking care of the clients and perform their sales function-----which of course is bringing on new clients. Dispatch coverage from multiple offices allows the sales consultant to work from anywhere. You get to work from your home office, or where ever you want. You do not need to drive to an office.

    Cons

    If your in sales you must be truly dedicated. This is not the place for people to just sit and wait for the business to come. Lots of hard work will pay off.

    Pros

    Helping others to get to and from non emergency medical appointments.

    Cons

    Wasn't ran correctly by owner.

    Advice to Management

    When you hire someone to do a job that they have been doing for over 20 years and owner has no experience. The owner should allow that person to take the lead.

    It appears that your review was intended for a different company with a similar name. We are involved in the freight industry. We do not transport people.
