Good pay and good home time, but no set runs/days off. Scratch their backs and they scratch yours.

Truck Driver (Current Employee)
Southaven, MS

I have been working at Greatwide Logistics

ProsDecent pay, most runs home same day. Layover runs back next day for our operation. Mostly new fleet of trucks, decently maintained. Many runs are little to no touch. Detention pay after two hours for store deliveries and backhauls. Stop pay plus mileage pay. Motels paid if you are in a daycab.

ConsNo bid process for runs. You don't know what you are doing the next day until dispatch calls. Many runs are driver assist, either by operating a pallet jack, or pushing while the customer operates pallet jack. Some runs are good, some are hardly worth the commute to the warehouse. Trucks are governed at 62-63 mph. Runs fluctuate when business slows, which is good if you want another day off, but bad if you want to run hard.

Advice to Senior ManagementSet runs, or days off for proven hard working, and safe drivers. Better communication about policy changes.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
