Stevens Transport Reviews from real truck drivers
I first joined Stevens Transportation Company as a student. But during my training period, the company asked me to pay for various things promising that they would reimburse which they partially did. When I told them that I would report the matter to the department of labor, Stevens started harassing me and told me to go look for a job elsewhere. They are just one nasty company that’s been proven by the number of cases they have at the department of labor for not paying what they are owed. If you love yourself, do not take any job given by this people. (Sue)
I have been working at Stevens now full time and it’s been about 4 years since I first set foot here. There is great work environment and my co workers are mature. There is a systematic growth opportunity and one is able to change departments if they so wish. However, their working hours are extremely long. You cannot get home until the job is done. You should always expect this when you join them…its part of business though. Sometimes I spend an entire week on the road and it does get lonely when you wish there is someone you could just talk to. I would advise the management to increase their bonus structure. This way, drivers will work harder. ( Tim)
They got the best equipment, but that’s it. Their pay is horrible. Their yard mechanics do shoddy work and the company treats its employees like kindergarten children. Their learning program is worse than a scam and they make drivers work for no money and end up owing them so much. The management needs a complete overhaul. Just toss all those jokers you have there out. (Flo)
One can make more that 65Kif you become a trainer in Stevens Company. However, to get there, is not easy. You will have to work for the company for several months before you can move to the next step. The company is known to have a great safety record and their equipment is in perfect shape. On the other hand, the company has a very strict management and a lot of drivers leave the company within their first year. The safety department is really arrogant and employees are always worrying about their job security.
