I personally know everyone that works there and yeah it might not be the best job in the world but if you don't like it go somewhere else,remember you came to them and asked for the job.As for the managers being as bad as you say,The company would know about it and do something about it just like they would and have done about the drivers.
Sounds to me like the ones with nothing good to say about P.T.I. are people that don't appreciate having a job in todays economy and probobly can't get a job anywhere else!
So you're going to tell me and everyone else that it is fair that drivers get paid NOTHING for a shift, if they can't get a run out. I do find it ridiculous that they get paid as much as they do by the railroads and they can pass nothing on to a driver who has lost 12 hours of their day to work a shift. We drive vans that are either disgusting, falling apart, or both. I don't even believe that you were a driver, maybe you were a dispatcher where you got paid for working a shift. I do appreciate having a job, but I don't appreciate being taken advantage of either. Here's news, it's almost impossible to find a job anywhere in this economy, oh and by the way...that's not our fault. What if someone...let's say me, who had a good job got laid off simply because of budget cuts. I didn't want to leave that job, I got forced out of it...

Its not really that bad...I am making pretty good money with my 12 hour shift. To everyone on here bashing PTI, get a life. If you dont want to work here then quit, that just means more money for me! By the way the two managers currently working for PTI, keep doing what you do I think you two are doing a great job! Keep up the good work! You guys definatley keep the moral up in here!
Well that's just dandy, another butt kisser. Hope that almighty dollar is worth all that butt kissing. For the rest of us who can barely make a dollar, it does suck. Why should we quit, why shouldn't we demand better treatment. You are calling out people who are complaining...do we not have a legitimate complaint when we wait for twelve hours and get paid only when out on a run, or make nothing at all when we do not get a run. It doesn't sound like you're a driver to me...or maybe you don't have very many people at your location so you can get a run...

So, you are getting Min. Wager while waiting for the rail crew? how could the above poster only make $20 for a 18hr shift?

Min. Wager +.14-.19c an hour isn't bad. Once you get a trip and start rolling it doesn't seem bad.

I'd say you can average $10-$12hr while on a trip, yea, waiting around for a phone call sucks, but you can make out of it what you can

If it is anything like Coach America where i work, you get roughly 15 dollars an hour at 22 cents a mile averaging 70mph, then we make 16 cents a minute when waiting for a crew. My last paycheck was little over 1000 dollars for two weeks.

PTI is a horrible company. Their conditions SUCK., their upper management SUCKS, the pay and benefits SUCK. Minimum wage is about it. You get ZERO not a damn dime for being on call. You can sit up ALL night long waiting for a call then go out at 6am and be gone most of the day after you have been up all night.
PTI cares about PTI and NO ONE ELSE. You are just a number to them and a very disposable one at that. They short your pay EVERY chance they get too. At today's fuel prices I have gone on a short call and actually lost money considering what it cost for me to even get there and I don't live but 15 miles away.
Bottom line is you can find ANYTHING where you live take it because PTI is the bottom of the barrel. Their attrition rate is unbelievable and that is because of the way they treat their employees. All they care about is their stock price and you as an employee can go to hell!!!!!!!

If you work and put in the Hours and make the runs you will get paid and there is no way to work all day and make $20 thats a LIE I can work 3 hours and make more than that. The Pay does suck and the pay for miles sucks more but its better than part time as a dish washer in fastfood if you work hard. Just becase the pay sucks dont mean you have to work like shit then bitch about not makeing money. Most poeple in the real world will and have had alot shittier jobs than this.

I onced worked for PTI. At the time i worked there @ the russell site we made .25 per mile. and 7.55 for wait time. Sounds like your union rep represents the company and not the workers.
