    Great place to start or continue your driving career!

    Class A Truck Driver (Current Employee)
    Black River Falls, WI

    ProsEverything from schooling to training to the actual job was exactly as they described on their website, over the phone, and in person. They training is cheaper then typical schooling, and the terms are very fair. The training gives you all the tools you need to begin your career as a Class A truck driver. The pay scale is above average for a new driver. They get you home when you want to be home.

    ConsBeing away from home for long periods of time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing. More terminals more places would be ideal to open up more regional opportunities.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good company better than most but not perfect!

    OTR Truck Driver (Current Employee)
    Black River Falls, WI

    Prosgood mileage, new or newer equipment, mgmt not continually on drivers' backs about every little thing, no problems with hometime -

    Conshigh deductible/out of pocket on health insurance (but I've also seen much higher), no pet policy, no APU (espar heater - good in winter not so much in summer), mgmt complains to fleet about idle time but doesn't seem to be particularly concerned with fuel mileage based on tire selection, trans/rears selection - many smaller things to lessen total fuel cost

    Advice to Senior Managementtry fuel mileage bonus instead of idle bonus - maybe give drivers back 25% of the money they save on fuel compared to mpg basis for surcharge; allow pets with small weekly charge to cover cleaning expense - possibly refundable if driver stays in truck until traded in. Keep up work in making terminals/service better - you're doing very good in that area.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
