Straight Truck Driver (Former Employee) says"Avoid this company like the plague. Will send you emails on what your weekly take home will be. It’s so far from the truth you will kick yourself for believing it. Good orientationEverything past orientation"
Independant Contractor (Former Employee) says"Panther started off good and quickly turned to being bad. I was sitting at truck stops for at least 3 to 4 days a week about a month and a half into job. They were giving jobs to a different group of drivers not in the company, from what i was told by my partner. Plenty of time to get to know people, cuz alot of down time."
Level 1 coster (Former Employee) says"This company is the worst place to work for. The management sucks and does not communicate. Nobody knows what they’re supposed to be doing or when. As a level 1 you’re only supposed to cost 8 an hour and they get mad if you don’t cost 25 an hour. Also as a level 1 you’re not supposed to cost over $750 and they make you cost any and everything to make sure they look good as a department. The director stirs up drama and tries to turn you against everyone else. They send out harassing messages and threats if you don’t work exactly how they want you to. They also want you to work ridiculous hours with no incentive pay. When you have a problem the managers can’t even give you an answer to your question they tell you to google it. They don’t know their butt from a hole in the ground and I wouldn’t waste your time working here.NoneThe whole job"
Driver (Current Employee) says"Granted there are a handful of wonderful and understanding people in dispatch and fleet experience; For the most part, drivers and not treated well by dispatch or fleet experience. The problem is there is no consistency or relationship built between drivers and those sitting behind a desk. There is no understanding or respect for what goes out on the road. No regard for needed rest to be safe. You will get taken advantage of very easily by dispatch. They are not clear on their policies with drivers. Policies favor dispatch and so does upper management. Poor communication between departments."
Executive Account Manager (Former Employee) says"The company does not care about their employees. They do not allow you compensation based on your work efforts. Management is not there to support you."

Fleet Owner (Current Employee) says"Crooks be careful don't be owner operater because you'll get stuck with a vehicle payment, knowing after a few months you will be leaving, I learned the hard long way, I was with them for over 4 years, Panther had no problems from me because I took almost every load, and was on time %100 of the time, I had the problem with Panther taking money from me!!!!!!"
Owner operator-Semi (Former Employee) says"Panther Logistics is not driver friendly. They do not taken into consideration driver X or availability. And they do not supply sufficient loads to get drivers back to area of this activity. They will make you wait over a day until you can at least get the relocation pay for fuel to get back to area business activity. Once again this is because they send drivers out to make a delivery, but do not provide a load back to another area business activity."
