    I worked at Willis Shaw Express full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    overall good fleet managers
    overall decent terminals
    great equipment, great trainers
    not the best pay but .30 cents aint bad
    most fleet managers, except for weekends, are very friendly and if you build good report with the company and do decide to leave, they say you are welcome back any time
    apu's and good in-cab comfort
    i cant wait to go back
    folks at atlanta terminal and elm springs terminal are the nicest
    great starter company and long term company
    as long as you give them advance notice, theyll work with you to get you home
    every driver has a different experience

    Cons

    gotta work for a while with them before you can upgrade in pay unless you become a trainer, then its worth while
    low layover and breakdown pay, spend wisely on food and get plenty of food n drinks before you go out again.
    you gotta really oay attention to how they explain how pay works.
    send qualcomm messages at the most inopportune times.
    gotta run a lot of miles to break even on expenses if you arent smart.
    mostly the Great Plains are where you run to.

    Advice to Management

    raise layover and breakdown and stop/dention pay, dont deal with tyson anymore than you absolutely have to
    make qualcomm messages driver/division specific, dont send messages meant for otr to owner ops and vise versa.
    make some improvements to your terminals and allow trucks to go faster than 63 mph
