    Pros

    Executives care about their people; discussions occur before changes are implemented; great time off policy; push to be on the leading edge of technology; compensation is reviewed every 6 month and compared to current labor stats; lots of experience in the leadership roles. Great culture and values.

    Cons

    HR does a great job of presenting classes, but not well received; location in Kansas City is not the best, need to move satellite sites east.

    Advice to Management

    Excellent job, keep up the great work.

    Truck was nice and that's about it...

    Cons

    Your never going to pay it off call you on your 10 hour break to give you "load offers:" if your asleep and don't hear phone you get whateveryou can rarely expect to see home and won't make enough money to justify it would not recommend this company to anyone. .ask about turnover and success rate before you sign.no onei knew there paid their truck off.

    I worked at American Central Transport full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    seems to be working for those guys that have been there for 5 or 7 years. They are taken care of but new drivers hang on for a tough ride and constantly trying to push the lease on you and so make your life as a company driver a sheer hell. They might as well be driving the truck for you and you are simply holding on to the steering wheel.

    Cons

    Apu's don't maintain temperature in the truck and you are not to idle it so you wake up in the middle of the night and you have ICE all over your windows then they give you a route that is not necessarily the practical route to take so you may find yourself fighting Chicago traffic for 4 hours when you could easily have come a different way for only 19 more miles and save you 4 hrs o driving in a bad snow and lots of accidents area but what do they care they are sitting in a nice heated office and no putting up with traffic and don't want you to deviate from their plan. Nice... so maybe they need to drive it then or better yet let their computer drive the darn thing and no open door policy neither. You complain about that or not getting miles and you are gone... Bunch of pompous arses running around in there. Figure you are just another driver and drivers to them are 10cents a dozen so you want to waste some serious time go for them and apply there. Good Luck

    Advice to Management

    You kidding?.. The president is a lawyer and even he seems to be high all the time. Walks around with a 5 day old beard and stares off into space while talking to you and keeps rubbing his chin and swipes his nose. Man is clearly high.
