    Pros

    Excellent training program! I dare say the best in the Industry! Chance to make great pay if you work hard and stay in communication with DM and planners. Make sure you manage your fuel. Friendly staff. Great equipment! Superior safety dept. Feeling safe and knowing Stevens is not going to ask us to do anything to jeopardize our safety is what keeps me here.

    Cons

    The shop is a little less friendly and could communicate with drivers better. They tend to be put off by asking questions. Look we live on and depend on our trucks out here on the road to allow us to make money and stay safe. When I ask questions I either can't understand them because of accent or they give me a vague answer. I get much better service at TA or Petro. The inconsistency of different shop employees amuses me. I really have to stay on top what their doing with my truck and that is so easy. I have no problem with Pat Yarborough. But he isn't usually here when I am getting my truck worked on. Oh yeah, please up date the showers in drivers lounge. I don't feel very clean after showering in there. High school locker rooms aren't that bad.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your senior drivers for advice. We are the ones that love to say great things about the company. I tell people all the time about how much I love driving for Stevens! I know you don't like decals on the truck but I get a lot of attention at truck stops because of that. And I always get comments like cool truck! Then it gives me a chance to talk about how I like driving for y'all. I am on the lease purchase program and I thank you for starting that this year. I been asking about that for 3 years.

    Pros

    Good place to get experience. Youll be doing service work with little training so ask vets for advice. Also be careful you will be be placed in dangerous situations you should evaluate for safty and reserve the right to say “no can do”.

    Cons

    If your coming in from out of state to work in Texas beware have the recruiter send you your starting pay in writing. I and many orhers were told 14.25 instead of the promised 16.00 per hour after the 2nd day of orientation. Get proof of pay offered and they have beat up trucks not new as advertised.

    Advice to Management

    Check your main recruiter. She lies survey new recruits.

    Pros

    Competitive salary, talented team members

    Cons

    Operations are in total conflict and constantly work against each other. Owners are very involved with the day to day operations making it impossible for leadership and management to achieve the objectives laid out by ownership. When things fall apart, ownership goes on war path on all parties and never takes responsibility for the erroneous assertions that they themselves caused.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your talent to do their jobs, nurture your new employees instead of tearing them down, and seriously consider changing the culture of the organization.

    I have been working at Stevens Transport full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I make more money now than otr, take weekly breaks at home, very easy once you learn what you're doing.

    Cons

    A lot of ignorant trainers, paycheck screw ups, some stubborn dispatchers won't let you go home on time for vacation, 36 hr shifts can be tough. Also, the garage does not do very good vehicle maintenance for the new drivers getting their first truck. I went through 4 trucks in my first month of employment because they were junk. I also do not like Volvos.

    Advice to Management

    You need to start hiring better trainers or train your trainers better, or allow new drivers to evaluate their trainer. You also need better trucks, because I went through 4 trucks in my first month of employment. Trucks for new employees also need inspected by the garage mechanics and cleaned. You could also allow drivers to get home on time for vacation instead of running out their clock, or run their clock out the day before. You could also raise the pay percentage on loads a little higher in the Tanker Division.

    I worked at Stevens Transport full-time

    Pros

    Stevens attracts very good employees and there is on the surface, a family atmosphere.

    Cons

    Pay structure for Verification Specialists is horrible. Upper Management plays favorites--people working under their parents--neither are qualified for positions they are in.

    Advice to Management

    Recruiting was a great department before Mr. Edwards took over. They ask for ideas to improve department, but don't really want to hear it. Associates are the one working the day to day, not just looking at numbers, so it seems like they would be more interested in hearing what's needed to complete work in a more timely manner.
