    I have been working at K&B Transportation full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    On the account I service, I work less than 50 hrs/week, drive 1800-2300 miles/week. 3 days off every 2 weeks. Dispatch is very professional and responsive. I have looked but not yet found another company paying $60k+/ year for these hours and miles.
    Flexible: There is room to move into different work schedules and domicile locations or work in dispatch if you want it. Dispatchers are also well paid
    The insurance is very good

    Cons

    Trucks are under-powered. They don't pay for truck washes. No 401k matching or paid holidays.
    Sometimes I feel overly monitored.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay for truck washes!

    Pros

    very good new trucks. great pay for the miles you run.

    Cons

    deliver on time every time and they still call you to tell you to get up and get moving. you will be spoken too as if you are an complete idiot. not once will you be told thanks for doing a good job. you will fight to get a load to go home. they WILL call you while on YOUR home time to get back to work or else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat your drivers with respect. if they don't miss pic ups or delivery times, don't hound them on their own cell. don't make threats to fire driver if they wont come back off home time early. stay away from jobs posted on craigslist.

    Pros

    Company will let you run a lot of miles.

    Cons

    This is the worst trucking company, they will find way to not pay you,and the company treats their drivers like they own them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your drivers are people, you do not own them.
