    Pros

    they had good facilities. good access to company personal. nice driver areas at all termails. clean showers. free wifi.

    Cons

    the lease purchase is a joke, dispatch was a joke as well. they run u good for a while, then leave you setting til u go broke. and if u deliver early the driver gets in trouble.

    Advice to Management

    better dispacth, better commucation with the driver. be more clear on loads. and dont count against the driver for being earlier on a load.

    Pros

    They allow anyone too lease too own in there choice program.

    Cons

    You work hard and only wind up with nothing. You are a mouse on a wheel.. I am a lease too own driver and I can barely pay my 830.00 per week rental plus fees and deisal I am in the hold most weeks and if the truck breaks down which it has i make no money at all. and no help really from the DBL.

    Advice to Management

    great if you want too be a slave too the company. either way you as a
     driver or lease too own driver you will never make any money.

    Pros

    Decent Trucks and driver service phone number for immediate assistance with any issue

    Cons

    Drive and work unloading truck 13.5 hours in one day (and it was on an e-log). and get your pay for 108.00 and paystub that says 9.5 hours and confusing explanations on bobtail miles and loaded miles
    Doesn't matter if your getting paid hourly or by miles-if you work 13.5 hours for 108.00 that means you are working for $8.00 an hour in a state where MINIMUM WAGE is $ 9.47 an hour.

    Advice to Management

    Hourly and mileage pay should be at least an average of decent comparable truck driver pay

    Pros

    Everyday is casual day which includes flip flops, t shirts, and un combed hair.

    Cons

    Horrible Pay, short staffed, over worked, and no concept of team work. HR nightmare in operating center.

    Advice to Management

    promote qualified people instead of just hiring Green Bay natives.

    Pros

    Lots of miles. Fairly new tractors. Cafe in almost every terminal. West Memphis, Indy and Dallas have great food

    Cons

    A lot is wrong with this company. Does not treat their drivers with respect. Treat like you are dumb. Bad load planners. DBLs do not listen. Bad equipment. Trailers are very old. Terminal parking lot in Dallas is god awful.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your drivers with respect. Stop talking to them like they are fresh out of school.

    Pros

    Great place to get your blood pressure raised.Great place to work on anger management.

    Cons

    poor pay average .34 cent per mile. Poor maintenance on trucks ,Driver Business Leaders are worthless ,2nd and 3rd shift support are worthless, Schneider emergency maintenance is a joke. Company needs an overhaul from the top down.Yes this includes the CEO.Waste money on worthless stuff. 60 mph trucks. You are just a number. You will be lied to. No accountability for load planners . Drivers blamed for a lot of things that are not their fault in wrecks.

    Advice to Management

    Run local trucks on 200 miles or less trips. 2nd shift support and first need to communicate. Keep regional drivers in their regions .Pay higher pay for drivers who travel up in to the North East. Turn all trucks to 65 mph. This will not get worse fuel mileage. You are stupid if you think so.Watch you tube videos.10 mpg with trucks running 65-68 mph. Freightliner cascadias.It is a shame I have drove for over 15 yrs now and have never been treated so bad by a company. Maintenance is a joke. trucks not completely service correctly.Items not repaired. No checks and balances.

    Pros

    Pay is decent I guess, work schedule is nice and that is where the pros stop if you ask me

    Cons

    The slip seating, (having to wait for a truck to start your day) the optimiser (being dispatched by a computer program instead of a live person), and I can't forget about the truck's (wet roads= no traction because they are automatic, some have tag axles).

    Advice to Management

    Why say anything, they know everything because they are college educated

  10. Management doesn't care about its drivers

    Pros

    I can't think of anything good to say.

    Cons

    Mechanics do not fix the trucks properly, the dispatchers send you out on scheduled days off.

    Advice to Management

    Worry more about the people that make you money instead of the shareholders.

    Pros

    really cool people. The management is really good for the most part.

    the company has decent values and keeps work entertaining. its about as good as an entry level cold call sales gets.

    Cons

    only a few people are making good money, which they boost as though each seller is hitting 100k+. it is pure cold calls all day every day. 85 calls, 2 hours of talk time. even then you have a chance at getting yelled at.

    also, i was told this would be a field sales position until the minute i started. the deception really got me.

    Advice to Management

    lighten up. be able to accept people's efforts. praise people for what they accomplish. acknowledge them and make people feel ok.
