    I worked at McKenzie Tank Lines full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Under paid for the danger in hauling explosive chemical.

    Cons

    Any mistakes made by a driver and the company will ruin you

    Advice to Management

    Don't ruin a mans career over a mistake then black ball him . just fire them and be done with it .

    Pros

    None. Nothing to be said good, just a poor environment. Do not waste your time here. Look elsewhere. Cannot recommend.

    Cons

    Not a good place to work. Look elsewhere. Pay every two weeks, always issues getting paid correctly. Health insurance is below average.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits

    Cons

    The management is terrible they only hire friends and most don't have a clue what they are doing makes doing your job hard when your boss is a ignorant idiot

    Advice to Management

    Hire people that know what they are doing and value the good employees these days good employees are a rare find if u have a continued problem with someone get rid of them don't let the good ones go over 1 bad seed!

    Pros

    Some terminals are trying very hard

    Cons

    Recruiting is a mess. Health insurance is worse.

    Advice to Management

    Hire VPs that actually have experience in the department you are putting them in charge of.

    Pros

    Hmm a recruiter will call you give you low down on pay which is percentage of the load. Tell you drivers make 1100 to 1400 a week. Insurance in 60 days.

    Cons

    But the truth is they are sad company. Who can not keep driver's. Just like rest of the sad trucking companies out there. Offering sign on bonuses. If your company was worth a darn. You shouldn't have to offer a sign on bonus. The recruiter is full of it. Hook you in and drop you like bad habit.

    Pros

    Work and money is decent if you don't mind living on the road! Company stated income is accurate! But don't plan to be home much!

    Cons

    Pay every 2wks, benefits so-so! For example; dental is 50/50 after deductible! Vision is reimbursement, if you can get it! Hard to make a living just working basically out of one terminal! Gotta be allover the pace to keep it moving!

    Advice to Management

    If you're gonna do an increase in pay, make it worth the mention! A lot of drivers deserve individual merit, not just across the board increases! Where's the incentive to stay on road and miss quality family time? To work harder?

    I worked at McKenzie Tank Lines full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Most employees are friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, there are way too many other employees that are rude and only want to point out blame. I did learn a lot while employed 10+ years at this company but I often told my family that I sold my soul to the devil for a small paycheck. I was able to learn a lot while employed and I am prospering well at a new company.

    Cons

    Drivers are seriously underpaid. Have to give up too much time at shippers and consignees. 2 hours free time on both ends. HR is not helpful, sometimes rude. I do not see the company surviving by letting good people go to other companies. Driver turnover is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Get more working people in the office. Monitor your terminal managers more so. Check their daily attendance. A good leader will lead by example, so if you expect your drivers to come in every day, your terminal managers need not have so many appointments and not be available. Same goes for regional managers. A lot needs to be done to improve moral and please pay the drivers a decent living.

    Pros

    it's better than having to turn tricks or be a drug smuggler

    Cons

    they are closing terminals and selling trucks. Most of their payroll and after-hours dispatch jobs are having to be out-sourced to Costa Rica just for this company to stay in business... Look at where they were 10 years ago and where they are now... the end is near.

    Advice to Management

    Close the doors and sell out while there's still something to sell...
