Wayne Sell Trucking, Cabot Pa

(Butler, Pa 16001)

On a scale from 1-10 I would give them a 4 at very best




What I like about them

~They tended to keep me moving, however, moderate hauls, and low pay

~The equipment was older, but I did like the spacious cabs.
~ A place to start to get road time, and still be regional and close to home

What I don't like

~The dispatch was actually built to be a "subdivision" of the company. Although the driver was to be paid 24% of the load, the 24% was after companies pay, as well as that of their dispatch company.

~The pay was horrible. A lot of the loads where to what I call "a hole in the wall" with little space to maneuver such a big vehicle.

~ When requesting to see the actual pay from the load, drivers are told that they do not have the right to see such documents, and refused.

~They did things such as refuse you your "down time" even when plainly it was needed. Take a ticket written to the company out of the employee's check, slow times on repairs needed--sometimes none at all! Which by the way is why I got the ticket- brakes way out of align, even though the truck had been serviced 2 days before. When the DOT looked at it, they specifically wrote the ticket to Wayne Sell Corp- they in turn took it out of my pay!!

~ No reimbursement for Shower's, truck washes, and many times refusal to allow you to use certain toll roads-due to their refusal to reimburse for toll roads


Essentially--the only GOOD thing to say about this company was that it was a place to get in my first 6 months. After that time, I moved on to a company that cared much more about their Employee's. That will be my next blog.

Great Company to work for NEW
by: Current Driver

I have worked for them for several years, its a great company to work for. They offer good benefits and retirement packages. As long as all of the paper work and receipts were turned in with my name on I never had a problem getting reimbursed for anything.

poor experience NEW
by: Former driver

I had an awful experience with them too. Their sand truck drivers probably do make plenty of money with paid downtime,flatbedders do not. I was broke down constantly with them. I only asked to be home at a certain time twice out of 10 weeks. Both times I spent my home time in the shop and they acted like a broke down on purpose or something and took their sweet time fixing the truck. I constantly had trouble with their people in the office. Several times payroll would just not pay me because they lost one out of several bills for the week.
Wayne Sell may be a great place for to haul sand,but I wouldn't recommend them to anyone.

people are funny NEW
by: Anonymous

I read all these comments and they make me laugh, I have been here 7 years and have not had any trouble. The last time I checked, we drivers are responsible for adjusting brakes, it is our lives out on the road, so how is that or any companies fault? Delay time, I have always got paid it, you have to write the reasons why and explain why the delay. I have asked for rates and they send me to the payroll department and they give the rate to me, never been a problem. These guys that complain are guys that just don't want to work.

Looking for a job. After reading about the W.Sell company, I'll skip going to drive for them. I noticed their equipment is on the well used side, and not paying tolls. There is no reason to even knock on their door. Thanks.

Wayne E. Sells Trucking
by: Randall R. Kniess

I had to check them out. Every other week I travel the PA Turnpike and I see an old trailer with the name on it. I was curious about company and now I know. Thanks for the info and no i'm not interested in driving for such a crummy company. It looks like the old trailer says a lot about about the owners. The company is a wreck!

I never got the ticket in my name
by: Anonymous

The ticket was specifically written to Wayne Sell Corp-because the truck had been serviced 2 days before. Dot did not write the ticket to me, no points on my license, and no ticket to ME per say.

However, when Sell got the ticket, they in turn took it out of my check for 189.00. I went to the labor board, fought and won. But the point was, they are scrupulous, and do not care one iota about their employee's.

Interesting
by: The Crazy Trucker

Thanks a lot for the heads up Keith,

Seems like that info might save some drivers a headache one day.

Hate you had to go through it.

I don't think you are supposed to be liable for that ticket. In any case, if you go to court with the receipt for having the brakes adjusted just days before they should drop the ticket. I wouldn't just pay it, I would go to court if it's not too much of a inconvenience for you.

Then again, if its not much money and no points on your license and is out of your way it may not be worth it to go. (which may very well be why they went ahead ad wrote the ticket.)

Often they will write tickets for things that is likely to be dismissed cause they know it is easier for us drivers to just pay it than contest it.

Thanks again for the input man.
Later got to get ready for the road in the morning.
