    Pros

    Very informative classes and new trucks. They can help with renewing your cdl you been out of the truck for a while.

    Cons

    Fresh out of school, you get .26 per mile and hardly any miles. Your paychecks are very small compared to the loan you payback.

    Advice to Management

    Be truthful! Don't give false hope of 55000 per year.

    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.

    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.

    Stevens Transport Response

    Dec 28, 2016 – Director of Talent & Development

    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.
