    Pros

    Can make a great living both dedicated or over the road. Training is a great experience for all. A lot of great customers,drivers and employees. They upgrade facilities for drivers as well as to grow their business. Thanks to all who helped,supported and worked with and along side of. Good memories. A million thanks to Mr. Gene and Bill England for all they do for their drivers. We appreciated them and always wish the best to future generations that follow in their footsteps.

    Cons

    Weather is the Rockies...be prepared in all climates and terrains. Remember where you started at and help fellow drivers when they need a hand.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your experience drivers as an asset instead of another driver on your board. Pay should be comparative to other companies to keep you season drivers and trainers. Equipment was well kept and give all miles equally to both owner operators and company. Balance is the key to happy runners.

    Pros

    Lowest priced school I could find

    Cons

    Lowest pay once you get your license

    Advice to Management

    Prove you care about your drivers by giving up a little control. Since where I can get a free shower is tied to where I fuel. Stop trying to get me to fuel at Love's just to save you a few pennies.


  10. so far ok

    Just started so far ok. They make sure you get your cdl.

    Cons

    Trainer's treat you like garbage

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you have trainer's who actually want to train. Not just doing it for the money

    Pros

    Continuously adding to their veterans program, just increased pay for all drivers, recognizing veterans every 6 months with 5 veteran trucks. Veterans support Network to assist new drivers. Veterans committee to improve all veteran programs and incentives

    Cons

    Over the road to start and gain experience the first 6 months. If you can get through that it improves drastically

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to the drivers and employees
