Pros

Good money you jus have to hustle. No forced dispatch. Mechanics are the best they’re on top of everything. Well maintained trucks

Cons

Long runs don’t pay as good. Once I worked night shift for a week and they didn’t pay for it, and won’t pay for it, because i started before the pay period. No 401k match

Advice to Management

Raise the pay a little more especially on the long runs. Offer 401k match
