"I couldn't be happier in this work place. There is a a unique culture here that still thrives despite this company's growth. The environment is professional and casual - a lot of fun. The owner, Jerry Shields, is always looking to help his employees in work and out of work in every way he can. Overall - it is a great place to be!"

"Mid-Atlantic Transport is as good a company as I have ever worked for. From the competitive pay and benefits, to the top-notch people and equipment, it's got everything I could ever want in an employer."
"Mid-Atlantic Transport is a great company to work for. The pay is the best, benefits start from day one of employment. Equipment is awesome with 2020 model tractors! When you request home time they make it happen on that day and give you the amount of time you wish to have off. Have an appointment at home? No problem they will get you home for that to! I broke down in Colorado and live in Virginia and was to be home and they made it happen while my truck was in the shop in Colorado! Everyone in the MAT office is easy to work with and will work with you! It also always nice that everyone knows you by your name when you come in the office! I love working for Mid-Atlantic Transport!"
"I'm happy at Mid-Atlantic for numerous reasons; the pay and benefit package is awesome and it has enabled me to do things for my family which I wasn't able to achieve before.
They have great equipment and maintenance but the most important thing is the camaraderie of everyone here. It's like a family and partnered with our customers, it makes a great team!"
"As a woman driver of way more years then I want to admit to this is by far the best driving job I have ever had. Not only is the money great but all the great people you work with are the icing on the cake."
