    OK Job

    Dsr (Current Employee) Rockford, IL

    ProsYou can make money. Good Benefits' ok retirement. Plenty of advancement potential with college degree. Co workers for the most part are exellent guys to work with.

    ConsCompany has an idea of where it wants to go but because it is so completely different from what they have been doing they're not sure on how to get there; or at least there's no evidence of it. To many college minded people running company without real pratical experience in moving freight. Lousy hours, to much about #s little to do with the reality of the situation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIntegrate more senior drivers into management.
