    Pros

    Take care of the drivers that work for them. They try to keep them moving

    Can't get the fuel milage needed. Med coverage bad and over priced.

    Advice to Management

    Raise fuel milage. And make lease better.

    Pros

    Weekly home time is nice.... family oriented....open door policy.... newer equipment... rider policy...great over the road pay

    Biggest con is insurance cost. Your pay is good but with insurance being High it cuts down your bring home pay.

    Pros

    Great people, family atmosphere, decent equipment, great pay and the Memphis, TN yard is very nice. They also make sure you are off on weekends and major holidays.

    Cons

    Flatbed is too unpredictable. During the summer you'll run 3-4 loads a week...during winter maybe 2. Pay drops tremendously. I love the company....but the freight is something other than great.

    I have been working at Builders Transportation Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is very competitive. Can't beat it and be home every weekend. Nice equipment. No trucks over 5 years old. Home every weekend!!!

    Cons

    A bit overly SAFE, if there is such a thing. Company policies often double what DOT mandates.

    Advice to Management

    No on likes Barney. He shouldn't act holier than thou. Everyone else is great at their job
