    I worked at Arnold Transportation full-time

    Pros

    I can not think of one pro to list.

    Cons

    Racist company, still works on the good ole boy system. Management is beyond horrible, no integrity, lie to their employees about compensation, pays employees their bonus late. No mobility to move up, very high turnover, expensive benefits, no matching with 401k.

    Advice to Management

    Fire management and start all over, especially on the brokerage side. Management over there is a complete joke!

    Pros

    payday is every week. Electronic logs. the terminal is located in grand prairie, texas and is very driver friendly. free washers & dryers. Showers. Maintenance program takes care of the equipment. Good accounts. Not cheap accounts. Sears, Home Depot, Walmart, Pratt, Mason, Ford,Coca Cola, etc

    Cons

    Driving through Dallas. Its bad enough in a 4 wheeler, but a tractor trailer-ugh. The tractors max out at around 67mph. that's not a terrible thing Ive gotten enough warnings & tickets in faster rigs so its probably for the best.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the drivers they really are the core of the industry

    Pros

    Depends on your experience, pay can be good.

    Cons

    No respect for drivers at all, don't ask for time off for a funeral or to go home, they will call you a liar, they will call you a thief. As a driver they don't believe you in what you say, what your issues are, or what you think. Between the SO CALLED DRIVER SERVICES people of buddy and kevin, they don't care, they don't listen. The V.P. has never driven a truck and doesn't understand of how to take care of drivers. The insurance that was given to the drivers went from being somewhat good to overly expensive. The equipment was the worst out of the industry! The trailers were falling apart, Trucks were falling apart and wasn't being taken care of properly. Dispatch didn't care what the driver wanted or would let maintenance do their job. They tried to cheat me out of money for recovering their truck. Cant trust them for anything. They said they are separate from US Express but they still share a lot from US Express.

    Advice to Management

    How about listening to your drivers, interacting with your drivers. How about better and cheaper benefits. Better equipment, trade your vehicles in before 300, 000 miles. New trailers and buy in bigger quanities, aka cheap price. How about young leadership and former drivers.

    I worked at Arnold Transportation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They don't micro-manage you. They have Nice new trucks. Office personnel is very nice and personable. They will put you in a nice hotel during orientation.

    Cons

    When you sign on to run Super RegionL, They primarily only want to run you in one state, Texas. Recruiters will tell you anything to get you to sign on with them. They didn't have truck stickers and documents current.

    Advice to Management

    Just as with the whole trucking industry, you don't believe in work/life balance for truckers. Your pay is less than other companies. If someone signs up to run Super Regional, then you need to feel obligated to run them across all states that Arnold Transportation operates in. I was running primarily in Texas except for one trip per week into a neighboring state only long enough to not be considered as Intrastate, so I couldn't get home every weekend.
