Pros

they have decent equipment with all the bells and whistles, laid back attitude, very little lay over time and decent bonuses

Cons

they have lousy planners, constantly late loading then you have to run like an idiot. lousy support--good luck trying to contact road service--forced per diem--saving them about $.03 a mile

Advice to ManagementAdvice

fire all your planners

    Not a good company - unreliable, not honest in their dealings with drivers.

    Pros

    They have the miles to keep drivers moving.

    Cons

    1. Bait and switch pay scale - their pay scale is 3 cents less than advertised, and they tell you you actually get paid more because of the per diem issue. 2. They will automatically sign you up for benefits such as 401K, that you have to pay for, without your consent. 3. They have hidden policies that they will automatically fire you for, or force you to quit. If they fire you, they will put a negative entry on your DAC report. If you quit within the first 6 months, they will charge you for orientation costs. I was forced to quit without notice or review (a driver with a great driving record and over 30 years experience) before my 6 months due to a bogus policy or they would have fired me with a negative report that would have ended my driving career. This is provable information.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of hidden, stringent policies that force good drivers from your company. Be honest and straight with your drivers - THEY are what make your company!
