    I worked at Stevens Transport (More than a year)

    Pros

    They will provide the opportunity for you to get and keep a CDL. Stevens holds safety in very high regard. They pay is good for a rookie. Stevens has plenty of trailers and plenty of freight. Stevens can keep points off your record and they have elite level equipment.

    Cons

    I had some issues getting home a time or two on the schedule I requested. You’re experience may be different

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Incredible company to work! From the first day they make sure to train you to be successful in your career. Top of the line equipment. Open door policy, accurate training by real drivers, they have a prepared team that guides you and helps in any type of situation, they guide you during and after training to ensure your well-being on the road. They continually give safety and seasonal courses to prepare you for each season. They work 24 / 7-365 days. Im truly proud to be part of Stevens.

    Cons

    Hard work pays off so is worth the sacrifice.

    I worked at Stevens Transport full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best training in industry, at least I learned how to get 80k lbs down a mountain without a Jake brake still hold that knowledge I gave them 4years, No not every load is gravy or where you wanna go just prove that you can deliver on time the respect becomes mutual, and yes you get better not always perfect but better loads

    Cons

    None really step up accept what they have to offer

    Advice to Management

    It's a multi billion yes that's right whatever a driver can come up with management has either seen or heard,

    I worked at Stevens Transport full-time

    Pros

    The only good thing I can say is that they have new trucks. But the payments are astronomically high, along with the insurance and gas.

    Cons

    I was in the allicance program with Stevens. They give you very little miles but no matter how little miles they give you, you are expected to make the huge truck payment WEEKLY! I would not recommend this program to anyone! They label it a “school” so they can rob you blind and keep their pockets full. Do your research there are many other negative reviews for this place even on the company side. But the alliance program is a big gimmick and rip off. Heed the warning please.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your drivers better. But that won’t happen. Stevens is interested in one thing and that’s keeping their pockets nice and full.

    I worked at Stevens Transport full-time

    Pros

    None, a few great dispatchers but few and far between

    Cons

    They charge you foe hundreds of $$$ in equipment needed for the job, then use loopholes to keep it even after its returned.
     Extremely poor management that will ignorantly argue d.o.t hos laws, call will your sleeping, on days off, or even unloading wanting to know what your doing.
     No real compliance dept, and will lose days of work trying to get cab cards, pm, or anything else involving legal needed paperwork. Dispatch doesnt have a clue.
     Driver managers seem to be able to run computers but know nothing about trucks or life on the road.
     You are set up to fail from day one.

    Advice to Management

    Hire new managers and stop screwing drivers out of the little money they're able to earn.
