    I worked at P&S Transportation (More than a year)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed my time at P&S Transportation. I had the opportunity to work with great people. I really liked that the CEO has an open door policy - regardless of your job title, he was always willing to talk to you about any concerns you may have.

    Cons

    No vacation time until you have been with the company for a year, long work days

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    I have been working at P&S Transportation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent equipment, otherwise just a job

    Cons

    If you run regional you're not going to make much, run OTR for more money and you'll be stuck out 3 weeks.
    No detention pay,
    No lay over pay,
    No dead head pay.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of you're drivers, .34 a mile doesn't keep drivers.

    I have been working at P&S Transportation full-time

    Pros

    I love how the company always has food around if stop at Nashville i get fed when they are cooking out or in birmingham you never know but always good.

    Fleet managers i've met have been great

    Home time is great

    Decent Equipment

    Cons

    Shop guys to me of all the companys i've worked for seem subpar a few i've dealt with in birmingham have attitudes .

    Payroll needs some serious fixing not getting paid on time as in everyweek and early but reimbursments are an issue

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees especially shop guys about how to talk to others in a professional manner and please for the love all that is good get payroll to stop having issues with reimbursements. I've complained to my Fleet manager repeatedly about not being reimbursed after sending in receipts after he emails them it ends up being two to three weeks to get my money back . This makes me very unhappy

    I have been working at P&S Transportation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is always food on site

    Cons

    There is no one to speak to about issues in the individual terminal. The current situation is laced with sexual harassment 90% of the time with documentation. Personal feelings and good ole boy management have lead to what is called a hostile working environment.

    Advice to Management

    Put a HR team in each terminal and conduct private sessions with each employee with the guarantee of remaining anonymous.

    No professionalism. Favortism runs rampant. Raises are laughfulable. CFO doesnt know or care to be informed about his people.

    Pros

    Pick and choose loads . 1 out of 10 will pay OK % pay .

    Pros

    Got home every weekend , ran paper logs , great equipment , percentage pay

    Cons

    Wait for hours for next load , no pre plans , sometimes really cheap freight

    Advice to Management

    Do not bid on cheap freight , pick loads a day or more in advance so you have a chance a higher paying freight and broker out the cheap loads to outside companies

    Pros

    Nice dm. Good equipment. Flex dispatch

    Cons

    Never get home at decent hour. Sometimes don't get home til Saturday morning.

    Advice to Management

    Honor your ads. Your ads say driver home on weekends & average $1000 wk. Don't keep drivers fairly close to home all week & on Wed evening or Thursday morning send them way out knowing they won't be home by weekend. This happens every week. That $1000 wk average is wrong ,& I haven't ever turned down a load.
