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

    Pros

    The people there are great. Annual Christmas party and golf tournament are fun. Learned a lot about the trucking industry. I did here they restructured since I left so room for advancement may be better now. My manager was good but does expect a lot (as he should).

    Cons

    The job is stressful. You do the same thing everyday. Not a lot of room for growth. I had the same job as people who had been the 10-20 years (a lot of those people got laid off). Outdated technology. Got fat from sitting 9 hours a day. Wouldnt get me a stand up desk (I hear they hsve them now; like to think i stsrted the revolution).

    Advice to Management

    Management was good. I thibk never technology would make the operations floor jobs less stressful and more efficient.

    Pros

    Free CDL Training at C1 Trucking School. Teaming is good for new drivers to learn.

    Cons

    1 year employed with pam or pay back full tuition of almost $6k, it is a huge commitment not to be taken lightly.

    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.
