Pay at Action Resources is as follows:
Action Resources offers its employees the following benefits:
Dispatcher was very inexperienced, would get sent on 250 mile runs with 2. Day deliveries, so .50 per mile adds up to $75 per day. This happens at least 1 time a week. So they feel you the driver is staying busy but driver can not pay the bills
Pay was always messed up, they missed pay weeks, refused to pay last ck even with 2 weeks notice, sued and won in court . Dispatcher was unreal, a lot of parts moving in opposite direction.
Closed most of their own shops. Drove with check engine light on for three months. They tend to not give you correct info(pay, retirement, vacation, etc), until you find out about it on your own. Then it's too late. They treat you great sometimes, then screw you other. You never know where you stand.
Good home time. I'm paid percentage of loads. Averaging about 1,900 miles a week. Looking to make 65k this year as a company driver.
Truly sad. The company was once very driver oriented. Now, the place has become a revolving door for steering wheel holders. New hires have little or no training in bulk haz mat chemical handling. Action does not properly train chemical tank operators. Extremely dangerous practice as a company. The company will require you to drive long distance empty miles without pay. There position is that the loads are billed 'out and back'. This is pure fantasy. Advice: If you want to work in chemical tanks hauling haz mat, go with someone who will properly train and equip you for the job AND will compensate you fairly for the work you do.
The pay is very low and very inconsistant. Actually had a negative paycheck. Hometime is very inconsistant. If you do manage to make some money, you wont ever be home. Do yourself a favor, and drive for someone else. I worked for them for a year, and they put me into bankruptcy!!
I spoke briefly with one of their drivers this past week. Don't have any real details for you other than he seemed happy with the hauls he's getting. He lives near our Tidewater Transit terminal in Decatur, AL, and actually parks his truck on our yard when he's home. I've seen him/his truck there during the week several times, as well as most weekends, so he apparently gets home some during the week at times. Action has a tank wash & they clean a lot of our chemical tankers. Been there several times, & the folks are always friendly & helpful. They seem to keep an ad on indeed.com looking for experienced drivers. Sorry I can't be more helpful.
