“I would like to tell you a little bit of my time here at Mast Trucking. I’ve been here little over three
and a half years and I understand that Mast is a trucking company where freight is the bottom line.
With that being said, Mast does a great job at trying to keep it running as family-oriented as
possible. It’s been a pleasure being known as a person and not a number. The equipment we
have here is kept in very good condition due to the mechanics we have on hand. I’m a trainer here
at Mast and I believe we have one of the top training programs that you can find. We believe in
training all drivers to be safe and prosperous to where you can succeed in our industry.”

“If you don't know what you want, nothing will make you happy. I want to have a life outside of my truck, be paid fairly for the time I am in the truck, and deal with efficient teammates who know their stuff - so I am at Mast, and that makes me happy.”
– Jed Klein, mast Driver since September 2015
“Just the way you’re treated as a driver. I mean, I’ve been with big companies, I’ve been with small companies, I’ve worked for an owner operator. Just the way they treat you, how they treat their drivers pretty decently. This is the best place for me to retire from. That’s what I’ve found.
The equipment is really good. I’ve been blessed to have new trucks, after I got a little bit of time in. Seems when a new truck comes in they ask me if I want to switch. I like the new equipment. I like the automatic with my knees being the way they are, the automatic has really helped me out, it’s probably extended my career, because if I was still in a manual transmission truck, I don’t think I’d be able to spend much more doing this.”

“I think it’s the people, the Mast family themselves. There’s been some companies where it’s all profit, profit, profit, it was all for the company. Here, Kevin turns around and puts it back into the people, back into the trucks, the pay raises, keeping the equipment up. You never have to worry about getting into a junk truck or something that’s not working properly. Most of the places that I’ve worked with were mostly mileage where if you’re not rolling you’re not making money. Here you don’t have to worry about that.
Kevin, to me, sincerely believes in his people who he has working for him, whereas at a lot of other companies you’re just a number.
They have a good group of people. From the dispatchers to the payroll, the other drivers, this is probably one of the only companies, like I said I’ve been here over seven years, and I’ve never had a dispute with anybody, whether it’s another driver, or somebody in the office. That’s what sets it apart from everybody else, it’s definitely the people.”
– Bill Albright, Mast Driver since September 2009
“It’s a family. Other places, you’re just a number. We got numbers here, but we’re more family than a number. I get along with everybody and I’ve been treated more than fair. I knew that the first time that I came in here. Everybody said hi to me and I’m like, ‘You don’t even know me and you want to talk to me.’”
– Joe Sergi, Mast Driver since August 2015
“It’s the way they treat you. If I need off or if something comes up, if there’s an emergency, they have no problem giving you the time off. I get to be close to my family now. I might not be home every day, but if something happens I can get home quickly.”
– Tim Adkins, Mast Driver since May 2012
“Everybody’s friendly, everybody knows your name when you come in. If you need anything, everybody is there to help you, let you know what to do. It’s like family oriented. Not like other places where some of them don’t know your name in the office, to where, here, everyone knows your name in the office.”
– Todd Phillips, Mast Driver since December 2015
“I’ve had one employer the last 19 years before here. I like this better. One thing I like is that it’s nice to be a name instead of a number. That’s a big thing there. It’s a smaller, family owned company. I like it better than working for a larger company. Just being here is an improvement from what I had before.
The home time is important. They’ve had me home on time, every time since I’ve been here. And where I worked before it was either too early or too late. It’s always worked out since I’ve been here. Last year, right after I started, my dad passed away, and they gave some extra time to see my dad, do what I needed to do, and that meant a lot. They kept me local so I could finish what I was doing and go spend some time with him during the last week before he passed away. I wouldn’t have had that with my previous employer.”
– Scott McDanel, Mast Driver since May 2015
“I started here on 5 on 5 off and I absolutely loved it. Gave me a lot more open time than when I was with my other employer. I was only getting a day-and-a-half at home with my family, and that’s hard. When I found out about the 5 on, 5 off, I nearly jumped over.
It’s a small company. You can come in a talk to dispatchers. You can see Kevin in here, the owner, and at bigger companies, you don’t get that. It’s more like a family rather than a job. You’re working with the family.
I’ve had a really good experience with the office, payroll, dispatch, and I couldn’t ask for a better setup.”
– Jon McMasters, Mast Driver since November 2015
“Honesty. That’s the first thing. And how friendly the people are. You never hear a cuss word, which I’ve been ripped by companies in the past, you never hear that. They’re upfront with you. If you screw up, they’ll correct it and go on with it. Everybody’s been great, they’ve been friendly, it’s just been great.”
– Paul Phillips, Mast Driver since October 2012
“Hello, my name is Brian Johnson and I have been driving truck for 28 years. I have been an employee at Mast Trucking for almost 2 years.
In those 2 years, I have been treated like a person and not a number, like your bigger companies do. In my opinion Mast Trucking is the best place I have worked.
The dispatchers and office crew all are really good to deal with and work with. The mechanics in the shop really do an excellent job and keep all the equipment in really good shape.
At Mast Trucking, they have different pay scales that all seem to work really well for different drivers. It is also really nice to know that when you see the owner of the company, he will call you by name and will talk to you, and not just say hello.”
– Brian Johnson, Mast Driver since October 2014
“The shop crew at Mast Trucking goes out of their way to help their employees any way they can.”
