    Great company and ultra competitive, but ownership needs to step in to save the company from itself.

    I have been working at R+L Carriers full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great salary, excellent bonus potential, tons of opportunity to grow internally.

    Cons

    Cut throat environment. Everyone only cares about themselves and will do anything to make sure they stay off the radar. The ones that take chances for the benefit of the company get thrown about upper management the first time something goes wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize those who bring growth to the company, not those who stand idle and are content with what they "manage."

    Line Haul Driver Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at R+L Carriers.

    Interview Details

    Several of us drivers at Conway Central were informed by a co worker that R+L was opening a new terminal in Sauget Il. We contacted the company and were told when to come and fill out applications. The application was straightforward, at that time the requirements were a minimum of three years safe driving experience and a CDL with Hazmat endorsement. Two weeks later four out of five were called back, (one guy had just had a heart attack). The interview was easy and cordial, just rehashing my career to make sure everything matched the application. When I asked when we would take a road test the interviewer said You've been driving for ten years with no accidents I think we are OK unless you really want to go for a drive.

    Interview Questions
    • Why do you want to leave Conway and take a pay cut to work here? I explained that I was tired of pushing the log book to and sometimes past the legal limit and working the dock at Conway.   Answer Question
