    I have been working at Marten Transport full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Weather pay good miles and

    Cons

    It's all good as long as you don't get a dm out of mondovi they don't know what there doing all that matters to them is moving freight.and forget about talking to the ops manager he is only going to side with the dm and the dm will not stand up for the driver if you ask a question the answer will always be have to check with the planners oh and forget about doing a 34 the answer to that will be is you getting back hours and you will be ok.

    Advice to Management

    TAKE power away from the planners and tell the dm to stand up for the driver and the world doesn't revolve around mondovi

    The load planners have a bad case of micromanagement they have no clue what it is to be out here on the road

    Advice to Management

    All load planners dispatchers need to spend a week or two with a driver out on the road to understand what it's like and drivers as well need to spend a week or two with dispatchers

    Good people to work with.

    Management - a new director was hired and he hid in his office. Did not come out on the floor very often to talk to his employees.

    Get more involved with your employees on a regular basis, not just when you need something.
