Valley has a great bonus program set up as well as the option for all the miles you are wanting to run. The benefits are great and so is the home time. I run 8 axles here and I am very happy with my choice to work at Valley! I have been a driver at valley since October of 2018.
I have been with Valley Transportation for over four years. I really enjoy working for this company. It has many perks, from a great bonus program to nice rooms to stay in while a stay is needed at the yard. The trucks are late model Peterbilt's and are well maintained and equipped with Thermo-King APU's. Great company to work for!
Before being hired at Valley Transportation I was with a drive-in carrier for approximately 5 years. Then the miles started to drop off and I was forced to look elsewhere so that I could pay my bills. When looking for other trucking companies I was very leery about some of them as for the lack of testimonials that spoke highly of the other companies in the trucking industry. Until I looked at Valley. Valley was by far the one company that I decided to apply for. When I got a call back from Daryl the recruiter I let him know that my experience with oversized and Heavy Haul was old and I was fearful that I would not get hired. Upon explaining this to Mr. Jensen (Daryl) he took my application and my previous experience into one of their safety meetings and presented the application and it was decided that they would hire me. I got the good news and I started in March of 2020. Valley is not your run-of-the-mill trucking company I stay have accounts if they have had for many many years. When I first started I let the orientation coordinator know that I needed a refresher on load securement and that's when they sent in Mr. Sween. Mr. Sween showed me pictures from other drivers that were taken after their loads were secured and refreshed my memory. After being here with Valley for over a year I realized that this company is all about safety, making sure that your loads are secure by sending in pictures, and making sure that your permits are up-to-date and making sure that you the driver, gets your bonus on your anniversary date. Valley wants its drivers to succeed. What Valley does not want is drivers who are reckless and have no regard for safety and DOT regulations. If you have all of these qualities that Valley is looking for call Mr. Jensen here at Valley and he can let you know everything that I just told you. I am extremely happy with Valley and I have no issue with any of the dispatchers or any of the office personnel.
It's been over 5 years now since I started working at Valley Transportation. During this time I have experienced some of the most kind and caring support group in all my years of working. The permit department is top notch and more times than not have caught my mistakes, corrected them and saved me from having a very bad day. Now I could go on for quite some time bragging about the shop, but I will try to just stick to the highlights. The mechanics are probably the best you could ask for. They are kind and thoughtful and treat you with the utmost respect. Their performance is outstanding and through. No slackers here. They have always addressed me by name and never by a number. The shop office staff is extremely knowledgeable and are essential support out on the road. Over time they have taught me how to perform many repairs myself that allows me to keep moving forward and not waiting days to get into a shop somewhere in the 48 states that we run. With their knowledge and support breakdowns are a whole less painful. These two aspects of the shop work seamlessly together and provide me with outstanding service and support. Then there is the wash bay and detail shop who's staff do an excellent job of keeping my truck and trailer looking good. They also make sure that if for some reason I need to use a loaner truck it is clean both inside and out, allowing me to feel comfortable in a truck someone else has been using. Over the years I have been with Valley Transportation I have learned that the people who work in the support departments have integrity and are honest hard working people whose high level performance allow me to be successful. If you are looking for a change and having outstanding support when out on the road is important to you, Valley Transportation just may be what you are looking for.
Feel free to reach out to me if you would like.
I have worked with Brent and Blayne for several years now, as well as many of your drivers, and I am happy to say I would recommend you to anyone. I have found it works both ways, I get a call or email when you have trucks in the area and I am calling or messaging when I need product hauled and it has worked out very well for both sides. There have been delivery address changes on the fly and redirecting loads and all that goes with the freight industry, and we have worked together for the most part in good humor and everything has always worked out. So five stars for customer service!
I drove down to visit your office last fall and Brent gave me a tour, which I enjoyed. Please use us as a very satisfied and happy customer!
