    I worked at MV Transportation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people who want to do the right thing, but constantly get thrown into fire drills

    Cons

    Constant fire drills, literally every week.
    CEO carousel and constant Senior Management turnover.
    No clear strategy or direction as a company.
    Poor business model with very, very low margins, so no money to do anything.
    HORRIBLE benefits. Seriously, the worst I've ever seen.

    Advice to Management

    Decide what you want to do as a company, stablize the senior leadership and invest more in your employees.

    I worked at MV Transportation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    None. Unless you're good and kissing up to management and dispatch.

    Cons

    Basically everything. The pay is laughably low for new employees, there's zero communication between the departments and the management gives a lot of false promises. The drivers who actually do the work and do it properly aren't recognized for their contributions, but the drivers who are "friends" with dispatch and management are able to get away with mediocre work and choose their own schedules.

    Advice to Management

    Start doing what you say you're going to do. Specifically regarding schedules.

    Pros

    The job market is open now. This company will hire you without a commercial driving license and provide you with one.

    Cons

    Train people well and avoid retention issues
