I worked at Challenger Motor Freight full-time (More than a year)
Great training program of about 6 weeks (but comes with 1 year contract). Provide you training throughout the year and keep you updated with the latest laws. Fleet is good - give you new trucks or less than 2 years old to drive. Company deals with mostly long haul and local work is usually given on seniority basis. Would recommend beginners to drive in-team for first few months. Safety department is great. Have 24 hrs in-house mechanic shop. This place is for professional drivers. Very respectful environment.
Pay is just fine but you get quality. Good loads (less stops) are given based on seniority basis.
I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Challenger Motor Freight.
Three hours being grilled by a little man. I also had to be drug tested, and medically tested which took over an hour. They wanted to know in my life if I had ever been to a physiotherapist, acupuncturist, chiropractor, naturopath. So basically if you want to take care of your self especially if you are older its a liability. They are so over the top, when they give you a pitiful earnings, no wonder so many guys live inn trailer parks. That's all they can afford on this wage!
