Kool Pak is a good company to work for. I have a great Terminal Manager to work with who treats me with respect, I love that. The equipment is by far the most reliable I have ever driven at any company.
I love the equipment here, along with the customers and the type of freight I deliver. I like being able to create relationships with the people who I pick up and deliver to such as the consignee and customer. This helps me save several hours on a daily basis and helps Kool Pak. I like my job and I can get it done with ease.
Kool Pak is like family. We are close knit and we all know each other by name. I love that Penske maintains our trucks so we can keep moving and keep the income flowing in.
I really like our route that is scheduled along with the team work, this helps get our 11 drops done in a timely manner. I love the leather jackets we won for driver of the year!
I’ve had seven other truck driving jobs and working for Kool Pakº is the best. They are number one in my book. In the five years I’ve been here, everyone has been awesome and I can’t even get mad at anybody. The company was super supportive of my family at the worst time of my life. Management took a personal interest in making sure I was okay. You’re definitely not a number here. I have to say, I’ve worked with a lot of people and these are the best.
Since retiring from the USMC 18 years ago I have worked in the trucking industry. During that time I worked for 6 different common carriers, before coming on board with Kool Pak LLC. Over the course of 6 years, without question or equivocation my employment at Kook Pak has been second to none. The wages and benefits are competitive, safety incentive bonuses are more than generous. State of the art equipment makes it a driver friendly atmosphere . The dispatchers and load planners strive to make pickups and deliveries conducive to improved home time for the driver. Drivers hours are steady and year round which insures a financially stable income. I couldn’t be happier. I’m proud to say I’m an employee of Kook Pak, LLC.
Many trucking firms say that they appreciate their drivers. My experience includes some version of that.
In other venues, drivers are evidently considered as another piece of equipment, used to the maximum and then discarded, without even a disposal fee.
Kool-Pak, a family owned business, puts action behind their words. Through more years and companies than I want to count or even think about, Kool-Pak has become actually, to me, the “grass that is greener”, which many drivers will admit, they are often thinking about.
Frequent expressions of genuine appreciation in a myriad of ways is just plain normal. It begins with some very good “chow” during orientation, and continues via bonuses and various financial incentives as well as verbal accolades and special events throughout the year.
Tractors are new or nearly, and well maintained. Personnel are required to support an atmosphere of respect. Every team member in the company is accessible at virtually any time, right on through operations to the president of Kool-Pak himself.
Benefits are generous, including matching 401k.
If I continue on much longer, you may not believe this is a real trucking company,
So….I’ll just say, Try it…I believe you’ll like it!
“At Kool Pakº, I know I am working with the best in the industry. We truly execute as a committed, enthusiastic team of drivers, dispatch, warehouse, maintenance and administration focused on safety and quality to deliver for our customers. Kool Pak provides me with the support and equipment I need to be the best driver I can be.”
Driving for Kool Pakº has been both challenging and rewarding. They challenge us as drivers to perform both safely and efficiently in all aspects of our work. For me, the reward is getting the job done knowing I’ve helped to maintain a standard of excellence I can be proud of, all the while keeping our company competitive in today’s market.
After spending over a year with a national trucking company that could never get me home when I wanted or needed, I started looking for a more locally based company. I’m going on 3 years of employment with Kool Pakº and couldn’t be happier. Not only do I get the miles I want, if I need to be home on certain dates, as long as I communicate that ahead of time to my driver manager, she makes it happen. Kool Pakº treats all employees like family. Nobody is a “number” here. And their open-door policy is outstanding, as management is always available to listen. They have newer equipment that is clean and well maintained, which is huge, plus their safety record is outstanding.
It is awesome that there is a superb “open-door” policy at Kool Pak, to be able to talk to anyone within the company at any time. Everyone knows your name and you are not just another number in the company. I like the Driver of the Month, Employee of the Month and Idea of the Month incentives, along with the fuel bonus program. I greatly appreciate that when a personal circumstance arises, Kool Pak is willing to work with the situation. It’s nice that the company is family oriented and there’s a good safety department. I appreciate having good and reliable equipment with APU’s, and that the equipment is maintained. If there is an issue, you have someone to call to have the problem resolved.
I have been a truck driver for Kool Pak for 31 years and was able to put my two daughters through school. I have made a good living with Kool Pak and wouldn’t trade it for anything. I’ve seen a lot of changes in the trucking industry and Kool Pak always keeps up with times. Additionally, I’ve made many great friends including the CEO throughout the years. I am proud to be part of the Kool Pak family.
I have worked for Kool Pak for 26 years. It’s been a good company for me. Sure, there have been struggles along the way, but that said, I couldn’t be happier. I get my home time when I want it and have been treated like family. When there’s a family emergency, the company kicks into action and goes above and beyond what other companies will do. I’m proud to be on the Kool Pak team.
