    I have been working at Stevens Transport as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They did allow me to lease a truck 30 days after training.

    Cons

    Here's my actual list of miles for the first month:
    Week 1-214 empty, 2230 loaded, 2444 total
    Week 2-150 empty, 1964 loaded, 2114 total
    Week 3-242 empty, 2002 loaded, 2241 total
    Week 4-353 empty, 1698 loaded, 2051 total

    My truck was in the shop 4 times and I did not get any type of break down pay. I was also promised unloading pay on a load with 9 stops and have not received anything. I have not driven the 2700-3000 miles that they speak about! If things don't change soon I will walk away from the lease!

    Advice to Management

    The planning dept needs to be shaken up. They need to realize that drivers are hungry for miles and should have their next stop planned at least a day in advance! There also needs to be some kind of accountability for poor planning!

    I have been working at Stevens Transport full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They teach you how to make a difference in your life. When you drive and those wheels are moving you make money. This is a job, you have to treat it like that and they have rules that really matters in this business.

    Cons

    Communication is a down fall, getting people in the office that don't know anything about driving a truck, they really need to find another occupation, making appointments that are false and not paying you for detention you have asked for.

    Advice to Management

    Need to really teach these drivers who want to make it on the road to get good mpg's, keep books on their expenses and so much more. This is not taught in 10 minutes and with bookkeepers that wish they never showed up today. DM's, CSR's, and others need to know more about a truck.

    I have been working at Stevens Transport full-time

    Pros

    The employees are very welcoming and coffee is free flowing! I never feel micromanaged, I am trusted to complete my job correctly without constant supervision.

    Cons

    Taking unscheduled or excessive time off is a big deal, however this is explained clearly in the interview process as well as in employee orientation.

    Advice to Management

    A company database for emails would be useful, instead of having to guess when you are new.

    Thank you for your comment! It is certainly good to hear that things are going so well for you. We will take the email database into consideration for possible future continuous improvement.
