I spent 10 years with them. Loved them, made good money, always had top notch equipment, great travel agent (dispatcher). I would reccomend them to anyone looking for a job. If you follow all their rules and stuff, you can actually make 6 figures a year. Once you prove yourself to your dispatcher that #1. You can drive. #2. You know how to manage your clock. #3. You know how to keep the door closed and the wheels turning, you will make good money.
I wish I hadnt gotten sick, I'd still be driving for them.

Depends on which DC. Marten has dedicated Walmart accounts at the following facilities:
In addition the company also has a Coca Cola dedicated accounts in the following areas:
Jurupa Valley,California (Inland Empire region)
Me personally,my preference is the Walmart accounts out of Tomah & Clarksville-I’ve always made a killing at both locations.
Lastly, the company also has intermodal work depending on the location
Hope this helps!
Cameras-Outward facing only
Freightliner Cascadia(Detroit powered)
Kenworth T-680(Cummins powered) &
Peterbilt Modal 579(Cummins powered)
Day cabs are T-680s and Cascadias,used on dedicated accounts and intermodal.
The company has transitioned an all automated manual fleet.
Hometime is variable-I usually stay out 3 weeks or more to get 5 days off. It’s supposed to be for every week you stay out you get a day off, but the company has changed its rules so many times in recent years. You can take the truck home with you, or park it at a terminal, or at one of the holding/storage yards that we use. Company policy is that the truck has to be parked in a secure, gated area(your home counts).Pay wise, they use a sliding scale. When I started with Marten, they start me at $.45 a mile, but in the years since, that has increased.
I very seriously considered Marten before I went with Magnum.
But regarding Marten, I’ve heard good things from drivers. From drivers that weren’t recruiting either, which means a lot. I would have taken an offer from Marten myself but as best I could tell the load mile average was lower than I wanted and I would have been mostly in states I didn’t want to stay in. I prefer es the longer runs and stretching my legs over all 48.
