    Pros

    There are none.... believe me

    Cons

    Training for new people is a joke and the trainers are cocky, unprofessional, and hardly supervise you while trainers are at the wheel. I can say this. If my training was professional and my trainer was actually teaching me techniques and showing me the ropes of this career...I would have been more inclined to be an OTR Truck Driver. Pam Transport...wow guys step up your game.

    Pros

    Currently working the Buda,tx lane it’s $170 a day. Management seems to care and will get you paid on the day’s that there are no loads. They recently bought new pitterbilt day cabs.

    Cons

    Takes about an 1 to leave laredo. They have two yards and usually have a mess because of the transfers who drop trailer everywhere and new pam drivers follow that and are lazy! Lot’s of errors on paycheck but will usually follow with a com-data check to get you paid. International trucks are trash and they promise assigned seats but it is slip seat. You will have a different swap partner that meets you in austin,tx every day and sometimes they take long to arrive due to management errors(wait time can be from 1-2 hours for other driver).Will start at night and your dispatcher works during the day. Nightly management is lazy and has no authority to do anything. The money here is not worth the trouble to be frank but you are home-daily. Fyi dedicated lanes are only paying .34 cents a mile. You average about .39 cents on this lane.

    Advice to Management

    Get more management people at nights. Have assigned seats and clean the yards in laredo. It takes a lot of effort to move other trailers just to get to yours. Pay is always wrong we make little money compared to otr as it is and to see a low paycheck it will get to us! Very important to have an accurate check!
