    Pros

    Financially stable company. Corporate is making an effort to improve itself and grow.

    Cons

    Difficult to get recognized on merit alone, requires constant communication with management. Favoritism is prevalent. Can be stressful. Potentially long hours with weekend work on occasion.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within when possible.

    Pros

    pay. experience. you will be extremely tested - mentally and literally. cool training trips to arkansas (hq). lots of character building and bonding w/ others. definite room for growth and promotions. cool company outings every once and awhile.

    Cons

    on-call. a lot of the employees work 7+ days a week. so much is dependent on you, even if you're a newbie. no pto for the first year. some people have a superiority complex. work life vs. social life... work wins.

    Advice to Management

    give your employees a break. no pto for the first year? yah right. training trips are awesome, but actual training is sometimes nonexistent.

    Pros

    Ok pay per mile for otr drivers. mileage not bad also. they are willing to rehire without hesitation

    Cons

    Guys in dispatch are sometimes really out of tune with the drivers. once it gets to a point where your paychecks are affected because of communication isuues, then its time to move on. Not a problem with all accounts, just pretty bad with certain accounts

    Pros

    Workflow was good, good co-workers, good customer base, good home time, decent pay rate.

    Cons

    Lease purchase not available day one to new drivers, for all the people they employ, health insurance is way too expensive, trucks too slow, trucks are too cramped, trucks are too filthy and the staff who's responsible for cleaning does not get it done, older trucks are not well maintained, maintenance staff smokes in trucks while doing repairs even when the driver asks them not to, intermodal routes are way to short less than 300 miles and time wasted at rail yards keep you from regularly doing two loads a day, If you use a CPAP machine they will charge you for installation of a power inverter you can only use for the CPAP and you can't take it with you when you leave.

    Advice to Management

    Get your heads outta your butts and make some real changes!!!!!!!!

    Pros

    Good culture at office, starting pay is good if you are young, learning good managent skills. If you like the feeling of working in a team, and being accountable then this job is for you.

    Cons

    Some employees slack off meaning you pick up their slack.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. As the company grows I'm sure more open positions will be readily available. That should mean more promotions

    Pros

    Takes care of employer and cares about them. Good medical and dental plan. Internal mechanics are offered open positions first. Coworkers will work with you and help out with tasks. Great on keeping employees trained on safety.

    Cons

    The company had a little difficulty keeping parts inventory updated. Computers are a little out dated but workable. There rest of the company is good and nothing else for cons on working with the company.
