    Pros

    Good "Large" company. Honest and they do what they say. Trucks are okay and gets better after you have been there a while. They do promote from within.

    Cons

    Typical large company equipment, automatic and very slow. They dispatch at 50 MPH, 64 MPH trucks and they use Rand McNally miles which is up to 10 percent off. This means no time for breaks other then the required 30 min. Home weekends, Approx 500 mile runs and drivers will load and unload everyday. Trucks have electronic logs. Bottom line: You will get about 1800 to 2200 per week and only get 24 hours at home on weekends. Nice dispatchers but loads are their priority. Fuel only at company so drivers must run unpaid out of route miles. Most repairs will be done away from assigned terminal on drivers time. Overnight parking is a problem at most yards. Can not recommend TRUCKLOAD division but would recommend other divisions. There will be no time for showers!
