    No receiving a letter reminding you how much you suck at life from the owner of Marten makes them a bad company.

    it will be interesting when the real story comes out. I dont believe Randy ever even heard your name, let alone cared if you worked there or not. This smells like a driver that just could not cut it.

    Uh, if the "real story" isn't out by now it's not coming out. I'd be curious to see if other drivers have received letters.

    If I ever drove one of Randalls trucks,and bent it up a little,then I would do it up right.
    You know your gonna get a personal letter..But could you imagine the beautiful novel
    he could possibly write,just for you?
    A dent,or police report is common for him,but to cram a tractor off into a lake..
    That would be the equivelant of Sam Kinnison writing you a love letter..
    Think outside the box,fired is fired..DAC,is DAC,so go big:biggrin_2556:

    They started issuing EZ-Pass transponders sometime around 2007 but for some strange reason they always threw a hissy fit if you ran the Oklahoma Turnpike on I-40. I could easily understand a new hire not discovering this weird policy until after orientation. I left in 2010 so don't know what their toll policy is now, but I'd be willing to bet they still force drivers to eat the OK Pike toll if they choose not to run the scenic route and run the big road instead.

    Much time has passed since whether or not he writes these letters was an open question to wonder about. The shoe fits, and he wears it.

    From what I've been told, any type of incident or accident is an automatic termination at Martin. Lol, maybe that's why their moto is "Drive for the Best".

    Being honest I'm shocked they are in business. They have a terminal in Carlisle PA that I pass almost daily at my job and quite frankly the place looks like it is abandoned. If that is one of it's "15 terminals spread across the country" and the other terminals are like the one in Carlisle PA than Marten is cooking the books to show profit and is barely keeping it's head above water if not losing money outright. I hardly ever see Marten at the rail yards either. They do have some containers of theirs that arrive at the Harrisburg rail yard but it's almost always picked up by a third party and not marten even though they have a terminal less then 30 minutes away. All in all they seem like a loser company to work for. If there CEO is that much of a child to write hand notes like that to beat down on drivers while at the same time trying to make it look like the driver is a liar and an idiot (how many people would believe a ceo from a multimillion (well supposedly multimillion) dollar company would hand write a note to a driver like that? None would initially.) then you know all the other big wigs in the company are going to treat the drivers horribly as well. The lesson to take away from this is don't work at Marten.
