    A Positive Experience for a New Driver

    Feb 15, 2021 - Truck Driver - Regional Dry Van in Portland, OR

    Pros

    Good support from dispatch; Friendly people Always covered transportation & hotel costs, got me home (via rental car) during holidays despite routing snafu Very safety oriented, encouraged driver autonomy Consistent raises, detention pay

    Cons

    Low base pay (was 31cpm at the time, has since been increased a lot) Bare bones equipment (to be fair, my truck was a 2013 dinosaur; pales in comparison to the new ones) Did not have optimized idle or APU (no A/C unless actively driving), though the newer tractors have many more features Asking for home time was problematic

    Pros

    The culture is saner and more reasonable than others in the industry - there is a sincere culture of safety, that’s not just lip service, and for career minded people who are willing to put their butts in a seat let that be that, it’s fine. The people there are generally friendly and competent.

    Cons

    Like so many other big companies they’ve lost their touch and can’t admit it. It’s a top down culture in a bottom up world. They’ve got no clue how to properly onboard their office staff, no clue how to properly delegate, and there’s a constant powerlessness/victim culture when it matters most. A general lack of accountability. It took them over 5 years and 4 iterations of a redesign for the driver team leader position that still completely misses the real opportunities and advantages possible for the role. They’ve specialized many roles/responsibilities to a fault, there are far too many interdependencies that create massive delays and breakdowns instead of efficiencies. Communication overhead is a massive liability and I don’t think they even know what that means. Almost everything we do is driven by interruptions and reactions, there’s not really a chance to make anything different or better. Their IT department is Frankenstein’s Monster, if one thing goes down or changes it wreaks havoc on many other things, and that happens a LOT. So what you see is what you get - and
