Pros

- Great team to work with.
- Management are excellent to work with. Very open to communication. Very understanding.
- Great benefits and pay. Nothing to complain there.
- Always get the avg amount of miles per week or more.
- Many helpful departments and cool staff.
- Nice equipment, nice trucks.
- Awesome terminals, showers, laundry rooms, living rooms, cafeteria's.
- Dispatcher's are awesome. Can't ask for a better team of cool people.
- Treated with respect. It goes both ways. Do not forget that!
- They care. Especially If you have a family and kids. Thanks guys!

Cons

- I'm thinking...
- To be honest, I have only worked for one transport company in my life. This one. Cannot compare to other companies..
- Trucks are not equipped with generator's. This is the only thing I dislike. I would love to have a generator to reduce Idling for A/C. For heat, we have bunk heaters.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Punish the workers who constantly refuse loads or dispatch, the ones who complain all the time and have all sorts of excuses. The drivers who cause problems for management. The ones who think they are their own boss. Get rid of the very bad apples.
Compensate the hard workers. The ones who do a good job, who never say no unless they have a really good reason. The ones who don't complain and respect management. The drivers that are honest and open.
Team work is key. ;-)

    Pros

    Good training program for new drivers good customs department to get loads across border. Pay is competitive for a company of it's size. Company for provided health plan pays at 80% with a low monthly rate.

    Cons

    Forced dispatch, not a lot of extras for work that is performed. Change rules for different drivers. Push safety in the public but then when it comes to actual maintenance they try and accomplish it as cheaply as possible some times not even fixing problems just bandaging them up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the driver and reduce the redundant and seems like never ending string of mangers and planner. Have worked for company's in the past that have just as much equipment on the road but half as much staff. Talk to drivers before you make changes not after they are complete.
