    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.
