NAPA Transportation offers its employees the following benefits:
Too many accounts serviced without being organized and most times there are no Empties for you to drop & hook, therefore you will have to bobtail from place to place to search for an Empty. Sometimes 120 plus miles. Most loads are very long distance unless you are working the Weekend. The good trucks are already taken the rest leak inside the cab & sleeper when it rains, some have fleas from dogs.
You are warned about social media in orientation. I lasted 5 weeks. Not going to sling mud. If you eat s**t youll do ok.
I've been here 8 months so far and the best company job I've ever had. I hope to retire from NAPA.
They now have cameras rear and forward facing in all trucks many drivers quit maybe do to an invasion of privacy
I've been there 2weeks tomorrow Friday and they do pay good and you do go home every weekend local driver home every night and off weekend
My husband drives for NAPA Trans, and what I've learned about the company is this: The terminal in Mechanicsburg is not the one to go to if you have mechanical issues. Also, certain DM's will not listen to you and the routes that you would prefer. Watch your payroll for breakdown pay, otherwise if you breakdown and don't push for your pay. They will not give it. Watch the miles you drive. My husband did a short run of 120 miles and they say you get paid .65 cents for miles 100-200, AND your start pay is .44 cents for anything over 200 miles. My husband was given .41 to start and instead of getting .65 cents for the short run they paid him .41 cents. He didn't receive his breakdown even though he sent a Macro on the Qualcomm. If you don't want to drive the 600 legal miles a driver can do, than NAPA is the company for you. However, for the drivers that are looking for OTR positions. Be careful what DM you get. Some, especially my husband's, don't send their drivers south. My husband told them he wanted miles, and to stay out of New England. He doesn't get but 1300-1500 miles a week, and they are always pushing him up in the New England States. See how well they listen and care about their drivers? They're supposed to be a pet friendly company, but the day my husband's rig was being worked on. He and the dogs had to stand outside in freezing cold weather for 6 hours while the shop was fixing the truck. Other drivers could bring their dogs into the driver lounge but he couldnt, other drivers had their dogs at the motel, he couldnt, and the shop would allow other drivers to leave their dogs in the truck but he couldn't. I will say that there are a lot of really nice people that work for that company, but a lot of the department's don't communicate with each other and stuff gets messed up. At times, it felt like he was working for SWIFT again, only the sliding pay scale wasn't as extreme and you don't go west unless you're an owner op. At least that's what we've been told.
Napa no t to be confused with NAPA auto parts, but NAPA Transportation out of Mechanicsburg PA. I got a raw deal here. They had **POORLY** maintained equipment from 1999 freightliners, and would do no repairs out on road. We are always told "drag it back to the yard." and if brakes are completely down to less than 2/32" they would adjust the brakes way up and send you back out. Needless to say, i get loaded in MA with scrap paper and tell them it feels like i'm stopping with all tractor brakes. What am i told? Drag it back. So I get off the exit to scale out and what happens, can't get stopped. I rear-ended another truck. I was ok despite having blurred vision and a severe hematosois to the forehead, a sprained wrist. They put at-fault rear-end collision on my dac and then it had taken them from aug. 1 til oct.13 to fire me, only because they had got a fax from another company to verify my employment with them.
Anyone thinking of working for Napa transportation in Mechanicsburg Pa., think twice. They will tell you will be home weekends if do not wish to work weekends. They will start out that way but your weekends will get shorter from two days to one. They will have you some where away from home so that you might get home to pass by. They say you will be home for thanksgiving and christmas. Does 2 hour for thanks giving count? Christmas was almost as bad, gave me a load to get home christmas morning. I ended uprenting a car to get home christmas eve. then they called christmas morning wanting to know where I was. When i told them home, they said my load home was sitting in the yard. That is after i told them i was going home. When I got back to the truck on monday morning, i told them i was ready to go. They had me sitting all day with no responsesto messages that i sent them. after sitting all day they wanted me run aload over night.
They will givee you 300 mile loads after sitting waiting for a load after you deliver in the morning pushing your 14 hr clock.
What broke the camels back was when i was sent in to pick up a live load saturday and the placce was closed . I called them and was on hold for over 10 min. I sent them messages and got no response. Ended up spending the weekend in a truck stop,instead of being home.
When I told them to bring to the yard . Surprise I get a 700 mile load. I told them I would bring it to the yard in the morning. At 1230 that night they had sent a truck and took the load. Then they charged me $1.50 per mile to get the load and for me taking the trk back to the yard, for a total of 147 miles.
When I talked to them about my vacation pay they said I would not get it because I did not give them two weeks notice.Full Discussion
