    Top notch pay package

    Truck Driver (Current Employee)

    ProsEvery time I think I've hit the cap on what I can earn here, they introduce a new pay increase or pay opportunity. The equipment is top notch. There are some good people that drive here.

    ConsA good amount of freight runs at night. The typical length of haul is short so you have to hustle to get your miles in. Some drivers find it difficult to get some dispatchers on the phone.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

     

    Fun, very stressful work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat people, logistic planning, opened up other opportunities outside of the company in logistics.

    ConsHad to work every 3rd or 4th weekend.

    Not horrible but definitely dissapointing.

    OTR Driver (Former Employee) Granger, IA

    ProsVery good bonus structure if you can last long enough to earn them. Quick resolution of truck and trailer repair issues.

    ConsBarr-Nunn delights in making drivers sit for days on end especially on weekends. The equipment is bare bones without APU's or inverters (unless you team). Dispatch can be rude and inflamitory and getting home on time is a shot in the dark at best. Upper levels of management treat drivers like uneducated buffoons and rarely take impartial attitudes towards conflicts.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou have some really great drivers. If you want to keep them then start listening to them or all you will have is an empty building in Granger.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    This company will let you get home on a weekly basis. They will pay more if you are willing to stay out for 13-14 days.

    Class A Cdl Truck Driver (Current Employee) Obetz, OH

    ProsThe company is on high alert about safety. They are paying for your safe driving record with 90 day bonuses. They pay extra per mile for haz-mat loads. They are paying .050 cpm for driving in Ohio and home on weekends. The trucks have really improved recently International ProStars and Freightliner Cascadias. Many new trailers added to the mix.

    ConsThey don't pay for baby sitting equipment that needs repaired. They want the drivers to take the trailers to a TA or Petro for DOT inspections for free. They don't pay for motels on your 34 hour restart. The trucks don't have invertors in them. Many of the trucks don't have IPO either. They need to solve their trailer maintenance issues.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI am "Ready to Roll."
