Good place to start, but don't stick around unless you have a dedicated route

Driver Trainer (Former Employee) Decatur, GA

ProsI was on Target Dedicated and made good money. I was home 4-5 nights per week, if I chose.

ConsWashed up drivers take pay cuts to become driver managers (dispatchers) and they are as bad, or worse at that as they were driving. They like the feel of power and seek every opportunity to make other driver, who are doing well, do worse.
I trained for 3 years and they have absolutely no quality control on who they hire from schools. Their own schools run JTPA students through who never intend to get a job. These paid students are extremely disruptive and make it harder for the real students to drive.
When I told them a student was a danger to the driving public, they just sent him to another trainer with less scruples.

Advice to Senior ManagementRead my cons and fix them. That would be a good start.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
