I worked at NFI Industries full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Pay was adequate depending on what account you worked on. Most pay is miles + stops at about .39/ per mile. Safety is heavily preached, but not always adhered to. Benefit packages are average and they do PAY ON TIME in the seven years I was with them.

Cons

They have a slip-seat policy that does not work well with driver schedules. They do this to save money by running trucks around the clock, but the maintenance of trucks suffers for this policy. Many days I was dispatched with a poorly running truck, sometimes with no air conditioning, which can make a driver sleepy. Had to drive a different truck almost every day due to slip-seating and taking whatever truck was available at the start of my shift.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you are going to preach safety, back it up! Stop putting drivers in unmanageable to positions where there is no time to perform quality pre-trips and no post-trip inspections due to slip-seating with the trucks running around-the-clock . Then set governors on the trucks at 62 mph to save money on gas, but extend the drivers working hours without extra pay. By slowing down the trucks to a crawl and making it hard to make delivery times, you are putting drivers in tenuous positions.
