    I worked at Stevens Transport full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very bad company working with this company for two months during my training and really the training is only to guide to make money from the coaches who are contractor because this company wants everyone to be contractor and the company driver as a side. Guide for company in team this company does not want you to guide more than 15 hours in the first after training but the DM tells you guide more than 15 and the other day they say no but when they have backloads they tell you guide to take The load on time but when it calls safety they say that no one really authorizes you were the 2 badest months that happened as a driver. My partner and I ran about 6,000 miles a week and we could not make 600 dollars. And the biggest reason that left this company was that after delivering in Georgia the dispacher called to say that the truck was not asked to move until tomorrow without incident that we had not eaten but I have to give thanks that for all this I could find A company that if you value your drivers

    Cons

    Bad company for student and driver with experience

    Advice to Management

    Take care the driver

    Pros

    My wife and I have been drivers at Stevens for almost 2 years. The company's training program is the best you'll ever come across. Freight is plentiful and the equipment is top notch.

    Cons

    Sometime planners and driver managers will lie to make you take some a load. Then take your preplan away after you get the load moved

    Advice to Management

    Please just be honest we are on the same team

    Pros

    Great miles, new Equipment, Family type environment. Training provided is the best in the industry. Driver managers will work with you, not against you. My DM Jessica Torres is great about working with me when issues arise.

    Cons

    Pay isn't the greatest But it is a training company.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay.

    Pros

    Best training out there for brand new drivers. I've met many corporate employees as well as other drivers and I have not had a bad experience with any of them. You hear horror stories about many, if not all carriers, but my experience with Stevens is if you're a respectful and reliable driver, you will get respect back. They've always gotten me home when requested as well. Medical/dental/vision insurance are top notch.

    Cons

    Pay is on the lower side but I understand that being a rookie. Home time is shorter than I'd like and not frequent enough. Lastly, trucks are governed at 62mph which causes a lot of problems on the road.

    Advice to Management

    I'd advise management to take a look at the home time system for company drivers. Also I can understand 62mph for grads, but the drivers who have been out on the road for some time should be given at least 68-70mph.

    This company uses shady techniques to garnish your paycheck to facilitate repairs to their hardware.

    There is a lot of misinformation in this review. First, you cannot get your CDL and be a Solo Driver within a month at Stevens Transport. Our shortest contracted training facility takes three weeks... More
