    Pros

    Westside is good as far as time home especially local hub and pay is ok. In my opinion I think all company drivers should make over a $1,000 AT LEAST after taxes.

    Cons

    Not uch Cons just hate I was a great driver for them and everything that I did great has been discredited due to a rollover that wasn't my fault. They waited a week to see if I was ok, letting me to believe in false hope that I still had my job. but canned me soon as their medical staff said I was ok. Now I' m still struggling to find work to take care of y family. Family Oriented huh!

    Advice to Management

    Need to invest in their own insurance so drivers like me who wasn't in the wrong; can still have a chance with the same company in which they grew to like a lot.
