    Pros

    all the staff at Desoto terminal

    Cons

    I was happy as a pig in new mud for 1 1/2 years at marten. no service failures, no problems. . was fired after 2 minor backing incidents with no notice and after being led to believe that a chewing out was the end of it. although I admit I was wrong and at fault I think I was treated over the top harshly.

    Advice to Management

    remember your dealing with peoples ( that's people as in human not numbers on a employee list) lively hood.

    I worked at Marten Transport full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked for Marten 1 1/2 year. Marten is a very safe company when it comes to equipment, not when it comes to driver safety. Marten drivers are public safety nightmare waiting to happen,

    Cons

    My problems with marten was breaking the law.They ask you to log off duty when loading and unloading and the law says all loading and unloading are to be on duty not driving. They want every minute of your time. they want you to sleep on demand so you are driving when you are sleepy and awake when you supposed to be asleep, and you wander why so many drivers have sleep apnea. They want you to sleep at there customer some who don't even have bathrooms for the driver to used because they are closed. Every driver has a system to get the sleep he or she need for operating safety. You can't do this at marten because the drivers managers own you. I think marten operation is a imminent hazard to public safety and the Wisconsin D.O.T and F.M.C.S.A need to take a closer look at this company electronic logs.

    Advice to Management

    Take another look at the law and stop pushing drivers to the limit. May I suggest an electronic survey of all drivers over the Qualcomm. Ask them do they think the company push them to the limit of unsafely operating there equipment when it comes to sleep, showers, eating, and movement. YES or NO. You'll be surprised of the answers, I was!
