    My sister works for marten. She isn't the brightest person when comes to anything transportation. Still pizzed she destroyed my knight rider big wheel.
    Overall marten treats her fair with lousy pay. Great starter company.

    Clarify: If they can hire my sister, anyone can be hired. Get some incident free experience and move up the chain.

    I'm reading this topic, on the 2nd page, before finishing reading I'm skipping to here to post this.

    Back in the early 70's I was unloading cement at a ready-mix plant. That morning I had the worse tralier we had, you could never unload cement without it stopping up, T-20, never will forget that trailer, & everyone had trouble with it, & it was never fixed.

    My hose stopped up 3 times, on the 3rd time I got cement in both of my eyes, this was at about 3:30 AM, I set by a water hose from the time it happened until the 1st person came to work, not able to see a thing, at 6:30 AM the first worker entered, saw me setting quite a ways from my truck, them took me to the ER.

    2 weeks later I was let go home, at the time on my way home I could not read the big billboards up & down I-30, they were very fuzzy. I was surprised I was getting to go home for the doctor had told me I will let you out of the hospital when your sight comes back, & here I was going home & everything was a big fuzzy ball to me.

    I had to return to my doctor 2 times each week, & each time he would say by the time you come for your next visit you will be able to see. On the 3 week I was getting worried, would my sight ever come back?

    On the 4th week we were having a safety meeting, & I attended with a good friend. My boss walked up to me, I could not tell who he was by sight, but I recognized his voice, & he stated, "Get your doctor to release you so you can get back to work. I asked him, "Your face is just a blur & ots about 2 to 3 foot from me, do you really want me to drive a truck right now?"

    His answer was yes, several people heard him, & no one could believe he said that, yet they heard the boss man for their self.

    On my 6th week one morning I woke up, & I could not believe it, my eyes were clear as a bell. I woke up my wife, & it was unbelievable to her. That day I had my next doctors appointment at Little Rock. That afternoon they tested my eyes & my vision was perfect. My eye doctor said this is believable, & I asked him this.

    "At frist you said I would not get out of the hospital till my sight came back, them you let me go home yet all I could see was a big fuzz, them each time I returned you said by the time I come back my sight would be back, yet now you just said its unbelievable."

    My doctor told me, "I had no idea what the outcome would be, but I did not want you to give up hope, I wanted to keep you optimist, & not get bad depressed."

    The next Monday my doctor released me to go back to work. Myself & several of the other drivers never forgot our boss man wanting me to get the doctor to release me so I could get back to driving a truck. Some bosses have no compassion, the only thing that means anything to them is the almighty $$$$$$$$$$$$$$'ss. And I feel sure there’s many of them out there, & they will do their drivers anyway in order to saved a single $.$$.

    And you never know, your boss may be one of them, or maybe's your next boss will be. I believe we have a few more of that type today than yesterday.
    Lone Ranger 13 and Lux Prometheus Thank this.

    My friend was at Marten and left. Likes it a lot better at Baylor. Is it true the Randy Marten has dozens of exotic cars?

    Yep, the world of business and politics is full of sociopaths. The prisons are full of them too.

    I wonder what the office atmosphere is like. Does he write letters every time a planner/dispatcher/tech makes a mistake?

    What does Marten pay for cents per mile? What is the range what they start you at and what it caps out at. I had a friend start driving for Marten and he really likes it there, but he's also coming from C. R. England so probably any company is better. Just because you got fired for your accident doesn't make marten a bad company.
