    Pros

    Some of the pros working at Marten Transportation would be I was my own boss and I was paid pretty well

    Cons

    That pay at Martin was pretty good

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Very family orientated, great pay ,awesome benefits,and you get home when your scheduled to be home .

    Cons

    The one thing that sticks out in my mind is the steps that the dispatcher has to take to get you a load. First your dispatcher has to pick the load then they send it to the planner who in turn sends it to customer service then back to the planner and again back to the dispatcher then finally out to the truck.
    There has to be a much easier way to do this .

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work

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

    Pros

    Good job in a stable industry. Low turnover for office personnel (people aren't getting fired every other month) pay is descent enough. Management is fair and favoritism is not apparent.

    Cons

    Fast paced, very busy. Work load doubles/triples when others take PTO and can be very stressful.

    PTO is earned rather than given upon job acceptance.

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

    Pros

    -Competitive pay compared to similar jobs in this industry, also higher than account manager roles in various other industries.
    -Various offices, lots of opportunities for growth if you are open to relocating
    -Gives you a broad and valuable experience working with companies of all sizes
    - My office coworkers, management, director and VP of region are all hard workers and supportive. They see the big picture

    Cons

    -Some regions do not work together as a TEAM, instead only cover their butt.
    -Various fleet managers should be fired, no sense of urgency and overall crappy quality of work.
    -Saturday shift rotation are mandatory
    -Work holidays

    Advice to Management

    -The different regions should have better team chemistry.
    -Put someone in charge of overseeing the efficiency of workers, and have them rotate weekly from region to region. Pay careful attention to the fleet managers, many do not deserve to work here.
    -More incentives for working Saturdays since it is mandatory. Better pay, or besides the pay for the day also awarding a full day of PTO time for every day a worker works a Saturday shift.
    -Make sure sales managers are indeed bringing new business as well as helping the operations team receive more business from current accounts. They need to step in if we are not seeing freight from customers.

    Pros

    Don't have to put any effort into getting paid properly. They are on top of everything. Had my doubts about Marten but, they have kept their word so far.
