    Pros

    Decent Trucks and driver service phone number for immediate assistance with any issue

    Cons

    Drive and work unloading truck 13.5 hours in one day (and it was on an e-log). and get your pay for 108.00 and paystub that says 9.5 hours and confusing explanations on bobtail miles and loaded miles
    Doesn't matter if your getting paid hourly or by miles-if you work 13.5 hours for 108.00 that means you are working for $8.00 an hour in a state where MINIMUM WAGE is $ 9.47 an hour.

    Advice to Management

    Hourly and mileage pay should be at least an average of decent comparable truck driver pay

    Pros

    Great pay. I average $1,200 - $1,600 gross per 5 day week. My local management is awesome. The hours aren't bad. You have the freedom to move around to a different shift if there is a spot open.

    Cons

    Support shift can sometimes take 30 minutes to answer on nights and weekends. Some local drivers slip-seat. New trucks are terrible in wet conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work in the Intermodal division. Turn off the new 4 minute engine timer, the truck has shut off on me 3 times in traffic so far.

    Pros

    Everyday is casual day which includes flip flops, t shirts, and un combed hair.

    Cons

    Horrible Pay, short staffed, over worked, and no concept of team work. HR nightmare in operating center.

    Advice to Management

    promote qualified people instead of just hiring Green Bay natives.

    Pros

    Great work environment in the office, people help each other out, function as a team, are not selfish. Management lets people run their own operations and does not micro-manage or meddle where they don't need to. People want to get things done and solve any problems that come up to help drivers or customers

    Cons

    I don't think that upper management sought out advice from lower level employees that could have made a positive impact on the way the company operated. It was not that they totally discounted what lower level employees did, but I did not see an atmosphere of continuous improvement. It was somewhat stagnant. Also in Indy there weren't many opportunities to advance.

    Pros

    Great work environment, never bored, opportunity for large incentive checks. Success depends on your own personal commitment

    Cons

    Not very good pay if you are not getting incentive. If you can't handle a fast paced environment or difficult conversations with customers, this job is not for you

    Pros

    Lots of miles. Fairly new tractors. Cafe in almost every terminal. West Memphis, Indy and Dallas have great food

    Cons

    A lot is wrong with this company. Does not treat their drivers with respect. Treat like you are dumb. Bad load planners. DBLs do not listen. Bad equipment. Trailers are very old. Terminal parking lot in Dallas is god awful.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your drivers with respect. Stop talking to them like they are fresh out of school.

    Pros

    Recent grad, decent benefits, OTR experience, atlanta crew was very good.

    Cons

    I was on a jcpenny dedicated account when I was asked to start my sleeper birth time while I was at a shipper to do a run dispatch wanted me to do that was a eight hour run. I said no.If u speak up there is a problem. No paid days off sick holidays personal but want to micro manage you. Detention slavery wages sit four hours for 20$. All dispatch should be on one accord. I recently resigned. Since I've been on this jcpenny account my check has been incorrect. One week I didn't even get paid. That's when it's time to go.

    Advice to Management

    Better leadership practice what u preach as far as safety. Pay needs to be better.
