    Pros

    Schedule, pay, & avancement opportunities

    Cons

    Must have thick skin to work with "Some" truckers. The professional driver makes the world go round and most Drivers are very good people. How-ever you get the occasional one that will make your day less than great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick by the Management that made you successful!
