    Lyle, in my experience, is a giant waste of time. He's good for small, insignificant issues, but don't expect any follow up. Good luck going above him. I tried to go up the chain of command, several times and never received a return phone call from any of the upper level managers.
    ALL IN ALL, MARTEN IS A PATHETIC WASTE OF ANY REAL DRIVERS TIME!!!!!

    Talked to one of ours on the CB this morning. He's late getting home to California, no surprise...but he's going to miss his divorce arbitration hearing because of it, and probably get reamed out of $50k.

    How's that for setting the blood pressure up?

    He seemed remarkably calm about it. "Yeah, I'm taking this one to upper management," he says.

    Kind of makes me wonder if the the divorce was brought on by Marten, since they have dispatchers who have a hard time getting drivers home on time. So the drivers miss plans made 1,2,3 months in advance.

    Marten does not care about the drivers anymore. Not since they have gone more into a regioanl / intermodle company .
