great job NEW
by: Anonymous

I have been driving for may about 7 months now
So far it is a great company dispatcher is really helpful. As far as miles they have there up and downs but what company don't. I am now a trainer and that's not to bad but you do get idiots like the guys or gals that are bitching most likely they are the ones that said that got this and didn't wanna listen to advice but that's all on them. Good luck to all be safe out there

I am a trainer for May and have been for 10yrs. I luv May, my father drove for and retired from May, a bro-in-law drove for May, many of the logistics and support staff are married to drivers or are ex-drivers themselves with other family members working for May also. For those who want to get started driving go for it and call May. For those who have drove for May and choose to complain about their isolated issues u should really think before u speak or type. DM'S have no control over the load u get, how long u sit at customers, the weather u drive thru or any other variables. People always want to blame the DM (driver manager) for things they have nothing to do with, or in a lot of cases for their own personal success as an otr driver. May is a great company if u keep an open mind to the fact that all trucking companies have flaws like people. Finding a company u can drive for for a long time is like getting married it's finding who's shit you can tolerate and still stand by happily. If yer looking to become a driver interview the company as much or more than they interview u, do research, ask questions if you have the chance see what kind of cars are parked at the yards that's a good indicator of success. Happy Hunting and good luck.

My Experince so Far NEW
by: Anonymous

OK OK what in the world peeps, what terminals were y'all out of? I have been working for two months with May and I have very few complaints. If I have a problem I call my DM and he helps the best he can. I have never met anyone in management has ever been rude to me unless I didn't follow a company guideline, example "raw hiding the truck". Other than a few crap policies, mainly idle time and the 61mph governed speed,I have no complaints. Also as for sitting, I hardly ever sit and most time I have a load before I even offload the last. And as far as waiting to be offloaded that is the consignees bs not Mays, you cannot control the shippers and receivers.Oh I forgot the longest time I had to sit was two weeks waiting for my truck to repaired at a Pete dealership, but hey I got another truck with less miles so no biggie. To me this is a great company for a rookie to get his or her feet wet.

Really? NEW

You all realize that the DM's are not the ones making the drivers sit right? Yes I do know there are quite a few rude ones but they are not the ones planning their loads. I agree with a lot of the comments. The thing I don't agree with is if you don't know what your talking about. Don't complain. I'm amazed how drivers go through company orientations and still complain. I know that May is upfront with their drivers from moment one. If you went through their orientation and then got on a truck and started complaining, then that is on the driver, not the company. The trucking industry is very tough. It is hard on drivers, it is hard on families. Not everyone can make it happen. If you are unhappy, no matter what job you are in then you need to start re-evaluating if that job is really for you or your family. It is tough out there. My family is going through it too. Sometimes we have to do what we have to do to get us where we want to be. With all that said, thank you to the drivers, not just May's but all drivers. I give you kudos and a lot of respect for the job you do out there.

give up if you can't hack it NEW
by: stop your bitchin'

For all of you who are not doing your jobs, shame on you. Part of driving a truck STILL depends on people skills! You need to speak to people with a few more ounces of respect than I'm sure you aren't giving anyone after reading your comments.
Please be courteous, especially to the ones that help you when you have an issue .

unprofessional no communication NEW
by: Anonymous

I currently am employed with May. I am looking for a new job because this company doesn't care for the drivers. The pay is ridiculous. I've been driving for 12 years and have never dealt with dm' s with no compassion or concern for me. I've been sitting for almost 4 days now and have had it. When the trucks not rolling I'm not making money. I've been thru a few dm' s now and the last one tried to make me roll illegally. He blamed me cause I wouldn't haul an over loaded load. Is that respect?!! No, its not. Over all the moneys not here, dispatch is awful, and trucks should be better equipped for drivers. You better make sure you send in a message about idling or you'll be charged for fuel you burn. On a 1-10 scale, I too say a big 0!!

To start off with I have noticed that everyone that is complaining about May are illiterate, that means you can not read, write, mainly spell. That tells me alot about where the message is coming from, ideots. There are Pros and Cons to working for May but it is that way where ever you go to work.if you do not like working at May go work someplace else. I have been working here for just under a year and I have only been late delivering a load twice. Both times were my fault but I never got in trouble. If I am give a load that can not make the delivery time I accept the load but in the comments you write that load can not be delivered on time and you communicate that with your DM. If you break down you communicate that with your DM and Breakdown. They will and should take care of you. If they do not talk to their boss and it will be taken care of. I have a great DM that takes care of me. Had a friend that had a bad DM and they just keept track of all communication between the two of them and ended up getting a new DM. DM's are held accountable also the driver just needs to Speke up. But something tells me that those of you complaining on websites like this are doing so because their problem with May is really themselfs. You have pore time management skills and would rather complaine than do a hard days work. Not that setting behind a steering wheel is that hard to do, pre trips, swap trailors, 8-11 hours of driving a day, sleep 10 hours, do it all again, 70 hours of work in a 8 day period. What is hard about that? Just do your job and you would not have any problems. With that said the job is what you make of it and if you can not do your job, then yes you will have problems.

drivers are treated badly NEW
by: Anonymous

For a company that is in the trucking buisness may trucking treats their drivers like mud on their shoes. Any one looking to sign on with may do yourself a favor find another company may trucking is not driver friendly especially experience drivers you will wasting you experience at may they do not appreciate experience drivers. Go where the drivers are as much a part of the company as the management. May management need to take their blinders off and see there are drivers busting their butts for a company who treats them like sh. . . .

bad company! NEW
by: Anonymous

I'm at this very moment sittin waitin for a load to get me home. May likes to give impossible runs and when you refuse cuz u can't do it legaly they force in on you then blame you for it being late. My truck broke down the other day they were gonna leave me stranded till the desk clerk felt sorry for me and gave me a free room. Thank god for speaker phone! I am a new driver and may trucking has completly turned me off to the industry. Ya a few of the dm's actualy care about their drivers as long as you are a trainer. Hope this company goes out of buisness.

May Trucking NEW
by: Anonymous

My Husband has just become employed by May Trucking. Reading the above comment about office staff and DM's being idiots and rude is far from what he has told me. I read this comment to him over the cell phone and he said he has not met one person from the start who has been rude. They are very helpful and considerate and want to work with him to help in any way they can. He was with a trainer for over 3 weeks and he was extremely helpful and even when the wheels were not turning , spent most his time explaining many in's and out's of May Trucking, rule, safety and operations. Makes me wonder what some of these people are smoking! First and foremost.. "Attitude is everything!

Stop crying NEW
by: Thomas Miller

I have been driving 14 years, been with a few trucking co.s and May is the best I have ever worked for. If you sit for a load its because you dont do your pta or your job like you are supposed to. Learn how to drive and do your job and stop crying May is a very good place to work and if you don't like it here go work for swift

stupid
by: Anonymous

I am a mom a wife and a person, since my husband started working for May, I feel like I have become single without benefits. Thank you to my husbands driver manager for all the hours my husband has SAT waiting for a load, Thank you to my husbands driver manager for all the hours he has waited to get off loaded. I think if the driver managers only got paid if their drivers wheels were moving, they would be more motivated. Sit at your desk eat your snacks, lick your fingers and then go home to your family, if they have not already left you for being an idiot. I have read all about May Trucking online and spoke with several people that have worked for them. You hear the bad and you hear the good and you weigh them out. In everything I have read I do not believe this is how May Trucking is, I think they have a few bad seeds in places they should not be. I am a manager with the company I work for and yes I would believe what a DM said over a driver, why would I ever suspect my DM was not telling the truth. So my advise now to my husband is, over document Qualcom(sp) conversations. Make yourself clear as to what you are saying your DM said to you and clear what your response was back to him.
The society we are raising is zero accountability I say MAY TRUCKING let's hold that DM accountable for a change. Fat and sassy killed the car industry, now the sale people have to work to sale a car. The DM needs to have a pay scale check.

MY HUSBAND AND I CURRENTLY WORK FOR MAY TRUCKING. WE HAVE NEVER BEEN TREATED WORSE THAN WE HAVE BEEN AT MAY TRUCKING. MAY TRUCKING'S OFFICE STAFF DOESN'T LISTEN TO THEIR DRIVER'S, THEY WILL NOT ADMIT WHEN THEY ARE WRONG AND THEY HAVE ALWAYS POINTED THE FINGER AT AT THE DRIVER WHEN THEY HAVE MADE A MISTAKE. THEIR OFFICE STAFF FROM THE HUMAN RESOURCES MANAGER TO THE SUPERVISOR OF THE DISPATCH DEPARTMENT IS CORRUPT. IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT WORKING FOR MAY TRUCKING COMPANY, PLEASE THINK AGAIN! THEIR OFFICE STAFF IS VERY UNPROFESSIONAL, RUDE AND CONDICENDING TOWARD EVERY ONE OF THEIR DRIVERS. ON A 1 TO 10 SCALE, WE WOULD RATE THEM AS A BIG FAT 0!!!!
