    Pros

    Great company if you like no touch freight. Lots of drop and hooks, nice up to date trucks that get serviced regularly. Dispatch works hard to get you home when you really need it.

    Cons

    Trucks are slow and speed is governed down so sometimes on the open interstate it's boring watching everyone and anybody pass you up. Kind of redundant when the speed limit is 65 or 70 and you have 400 miles left to drive.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more drivers to convert over to non trucking jobs. They try to keep you driving because it's easier to hire another dispatcher than it is to find another good driver, but at some point every driver burns out. I have found it quite difficult to get a dispatch position after being here for 7 years and having a perfect driving record.
