    Pros

    Good money, good miles. Your coworkers are pretty cool and the trainers as well. Forced dispatch but it's good for the soul

    Cons

    Nothing really bad... Just staying out more than 3 weeks is required. They really have crazy DM's too. Little white lies too

    Advice to Management

    Ehh

    Pros

    The job requires complete concentration on safty, driving, knowing where you are and how to get from pointA to B in a very thought out timely manor.

    Cons

    You will be alone 99% of time on road. You sleep,eat and live in the cab of this truck tractor.for 30 plus days at a time. This is no good for a out going person.Will ruin any relationship.

    Advice to Management

    They(Management) think only in moving frieght. Not about a person persoal well being. There are no nice events on the road. Stops are authorized. They need to be made to get a place to stop,sleep,fuel,eat and any personnel hygene needed.

    Pros

    Really liked the equipment. Pensacola DM was really good. Got reasonable routes that I loved doing. Awesome trainer.

    Cons

    Insurance was a joke. Pay was questioned EVERY pay check. Orientation is 2 days, seriously TWO days? I quickly realized that I was working with a company who has been living off a reputation 5-10 years ago. Now its a puppy mill no doubt about it. The terminals that I stopped by are just down right nasty, Denver takes the cake on that. (along with the safety administration). They will get you in the door show you respect, after you solo WELCOME TO THE SUCK.

    Pros

    Teaches you everything your truck driving school forgot to teach you.
    Proper shifting, fuel economy (if you ever become an O/O this will be invaluable)

    Cons

    Too many drivers, not enough loads, They must get an incentive from the feds to take in all these newbies, so they assign them a truck, get them a couple loads and then its "make way for the next batch"

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people with respect.
    GET THEM LOADS!!!

  8. Pretty good for a starting driver.

    Pros

    The driver managers and others seem to be friendly and want to work with the drivers as long as everyone is willing to be flexible.

    Cons

    Planners seem to have a problem planning appointments in reasonable time frames. Sometimes deliveries are impossible to make due to their not building in enough time to get from point A to point B.

    Advice to Management

    Planners need to look at the important variables in order to set appointments for delivery before sending the preplans and dispatches to the drivers.

    Pros

    - It's a smaller company so they know your name, you're not a number.
    - They work with you to get you home when you need to go.
    - They understand the needs and frustrations that come with OTR drivers and are helpful.
    - The dispatchers treat you with respect.
    - They are very safety oriented.

    Cons

    - trucks are governed at 62 MPH which can cause a few problems, pulling hills and passing where speed limits are 65-75 MPH
    - At times not everyone is on the same page in regards to planners, DMs, routing instructions.

    Advice to Management

    I understand the governing of the trucks for safety reasons but sometimes this puts drivers in dangerous situations in places where speed limits are higher than 55. Routing instructions are vague and misleading at times. (Not all drivers have a GPS).
