    I have been working at Marten Transport full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good equipment, like the APU's & inverters that are installed on trucks.

    Cons

    Company takes a "one size fits all" approach to dealing with drivers. Constant repeated nagging messages over the Qualcomm that get tuned out. Dispatches that don't have all required info such as temperature info & unclear pick up info (pick up numbers).

    Advice to Management

    Tell customer service reps to get complete information (temp. requirements for example) for loads. STOP with the nagging, intelligence-insulting qualcomm messages. PLEASE turn off the 10 hour limit on APU/heat/AC usage (it's very annoying to be woken up in the middle of the night freezing or sweating because the climate control shuts off while we're asleep).

    I have been working at Marten Transport full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    High miles. Good pay per mile. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Hard to get time off. Called back early too many times.

    Advice to Management

    Make home time more manageable. Do not called it super regional. It is OTR.
