    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.

    Pros

    You get your CDL, and are an OTR truck driver within a month

    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

    Pros

    Stevens Transport changed my life! Well taken care of and Treated like family from day 1. No limits to achieve all my goals and tremendous support from my Driver Manager , Michael Bryant!! The team at Stevens keeps me rolling day after day and always responds to any of my needs. I'm looking forward to a long career with Stevens and highly recommend you look into any opportunity to join Stevens Transport today!!

    Cons

    Just like any business or job you perform, you will have some bad with the good. But when rating a company you have to look at the big picture. It's how the company reacts to the bad and what kind of support they can offer to fix the issue. Stevens Transport is always at your reach and will jump to solve any issue as long as you communicate with them. Every Company has their own set of issues but if you want a great support team, Stevens has been the best!!!
