Former Employee - Dec 31, 2020

Great company! I enjoy the time on the road, plenty of miles but home time when I want it. Left to pursue my acting career in Tennessee!

Pros

A family atmosphere worth the effort

Cons

A family atmosphere subject to such things as families are

This bunch is the stereotypical group we have all heard of in the business. I was there a few years ago for orientation. All we heard was, "if this happens, it's your fault and you will pay for it (or you will be fired because of it)," for even the tiniest infraction. Seriously. I nearly made it through the orientation, but I couldn't stand the BS piling up around me. Like many before me (according to the motel employees), I left early enough to get a position the next week. I did.

Pros

In Florida.

Cons

1). Everything is the drivers' fault. 2). P&S owns 75% of the company!!!

DMT is a small flatbed company of 120 or so trucks. They recently sold 75% to P&S. The trucks I saw were older, with 500,000 miles or more, but well maintained. The owner is hands-on and works every day, sometimes on the road. Everyone in the office is really nice and accommodating. Most drivers get home on the weekend, usually loaded with a Monday delivery appointment. This would be a great home for an experienced flatbed driver living in the Southeast. I recommend starting flatbed with a big company like Melton or TMC, where you can learn the basics in a classroom and warehouse, in a comprehensive way. Me? Back to reefer!

Pros

68 mph. New trucks are on the way. Small family company and I felt welcome and at home from day one. Sign on bonus. Home most weekends.

Cons

Training for inexperienced flatbed drivers is marginal. Seemed like there was no plan. Just winging it. I have 12 years OTR driving experience. I was treated like a child by my trainer, who was 10 years my junior. I told the recruiter that I don't smoke, and would not train with a smoker. My trainer was a smoker. The first week was long and difficult but a success, I thought. The second week the trainer became more and more frustrated and impatient with me. We only stopped to eat once a day.
