    Pros

    I like the benefits package, pay is decent, I have a great Driver Manager (Julie Jones) she keeps me moving (on week days) i m just one of the lucky drivers the get an outstanding DM. Lowell, Arkansas DM's are a joke!!!!! They could use some pointers from the Dallas yard DM's

    Cons

    If you dont have a load that will carry you though the weekend then your S.O.L weekend dispatch sucks!!!!! Absolutely no support on weekends, no home/work balance, they try to dispatch you on a load even if youre taking your 48hr hometime, on weekends. way to many live loads, would like to have more drop & hooks. DM's treat drivers like we're they scum of the earth.

    Advice to Management

    Without drivers no one gets paid, drivers are treated like crap. The recidivism rate would drop if drivers treated more like humans than mules. We have families too. Drivers sacrifice way more than any other person in the company so we should be treated better. J.B. should work on retaining experienced driver. Starting with training better DM's most have no people skills.

    Pros

    Great benefits, Awesome support system, Informative management crew.

    Cons

    Can not physically unload anymore. Trailers are just too hot to work in. Docks rarely have fans on them and those that do rarely ever use them.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the exit interview.
