Low pay no miles I bring home 300 $ a wk they are hiring cheap drivers to move cheap freight. 90% of their drivers get a violation in a wk handheld devices or speeding in work zones no thanks hogan I'm leaving
I currently work for them at a dedicated position with SAL stores. You will not make close to the promises made at hiring. Will be 6 days a week but they will tell you otherwise. Lucky to make 800.00 a week in 6 days. Very expensive insurance much more then most companies. They are not a driver friendly company everything is about Hogan because in their opinion they are a truck leasing company not a trucking company. Only supply drivers to lease truck to dedicated accounts.
Was hired at trucking school and told to get this rate/mile, and make up to 45k first year as an OTR. After 2 months of driving, found out they didn't pay you the rate they told you! How could you make that money if you only have $400 take home 6-7 days work a week? Sometimes less! There is more time wasted in waiting for a load than on the road, and they only have short runs and seldom long runs! It is very disappointing! They only have 62mph Truck. Other companies just keep passing you on the road. Too much hours wasted. Their mileage calculation is LESSER than what you'll get from your own smartphone maps or even from the Trucker Path app. Their QUALCOMM is junk. Missed an exit cause it froze! Their advertisement is not what you'll get. There's no truth!
I went to work for them and was told I make 50k or better I was lucky to break 40 a year and I was wrote up every other week for hard braking and tailgate when I got cut off or when a deer would jump in front of me when they got tired of writing me up they fired me and sad I was bad driver they put bad info on my dac report and when I talked to other companies about a job they would bring it up and I was the one that was wrong and did not get the job I would tell anyone to do the research of any companies and talk to there driver before taking a job with any companies Ps if a company give you a 62mph truck or it won't idle they don't care about you and you will not make any money there run as fast as you can from companies like this
Just the facts, Save A Lot account: Hogan leases International Prostar tractors and Utility trailers AND drivers to Save A Lot. Hogan treats their drivers like subcontractors and charges Save A Lot a higher rate per mile than what they actually pay you the driver just like working for an employment agency. Nice! (for Hogan $) Drivers employed by Save A Lot get payed over 50 cents a mile while Hogan pays their drivers only 34 cents per mile with a 2 cent per mile safety bonus that they pay separately almost never on time. Obviously Save A Lot thinks their own drivers should get $20,000 more per year. Basic Insurance for a family of 4 costs at least $170.00 or more a week through Hogan. Hogan is a big money Fortune 100 company. That's $100 million or more they make per year folks. Hogan uses computer software to keep driver's miles low so at years end, almost all drivers make about 40,000 to 50,000 no matter what they do or how many hours or days they work. Neat huh? Drivers can expect to work anywhere from 6 hours one day to 16 hours or more the next day 6 days a week with only a 1/2 day's notice for schedule. Basically an On call schedule. Hogan only pays miles driven, 12 dollars per stop and 12 dollars an hour for detention with no overtime pay. No year end bonus, no pay for adding fuel/fluids and pre/post trips, no paid 1/2 hour mandatory break, or for cleaning tractors, sweeping out trailers, taking tractors and trailers to shop for maintenance, no compensation for business use of cell phone for calls to and from Hogan or stores and no profit sharing checks. Basically, unless a driver is driving, the driver is performing all work for absolutely FREE. Tractors are "turned down" in horsepower and are speed governed at 63 mph but... Since tractors take so long to go up hills due to downshifting on even the smallest of hills and getting back up to speed, the tractors actually only average about 55 mph over a trip. Drivers spend on average about 1/2 hour to 1 hour more behind the wheel each trip than most other drivers at other companies per day which translates to hundreds of hours of a driver's time per year wasted alone. You will see other drivers get off the freeway to get fuel and go pee and then see those same drivers pass you about 20 minutes later because their trucks go the speed limit, That's how slow these trucks are! Oh yes, check this out, Hogan pays a spy agency to follow you around to video tape you while you are driving and at stores then fines you for breaking their policies by using that spy info to take away a whole safety bonus of 200 to 400 dollars! Sweet, almost like they planned it this way to get the safety bonus back. Hogan has a deaf ear and a shallow pocket when it comes to their drivers. Emails and phone messages won't be returned by Safety manager or Management. You will as a driver be joked about behind your back at company functions. All told Hogan Drivers make a little more than minimum wage after adding all the time spent at work to show for at the end of the year. Still think Hogan Deadheadicated is for you? Well then you must be a sad idiot moron just like me.
I had previously opened up a thread asking about Hogan Transports in Bridgeton, MO.
Now they have an ad up on Craigslist for My area stating that For a dedicated account, They pay up to $80K
Annually on W2! Really...I kind of doubt a regional dedicated account is gonna pay that kind of money!
Any thoughts on this recruiting tactic?
