    Pros

    The pay is good. You can get good miles if you're willing to work. They care about drivers more than most companies their size. I never have a problem getting home.

    Cons

    The split management can make things confusing at times. My pet peeve: you rarely get the next preplan before delivering the current load.

    Pros

    Used to be pay, but that's not the case anymore

    Cons

    Where to begin. As long as you're from NE and all about falling in line, you're good. 12 and 2 schedule only way to make money. Trucks are crap. Loads are crap. Zero consistency with mileage. Dispatch punishes you if take hometime or breakdown. Shop maintence is a joke. Something that should take a few hrs to fix takes days and they refuse to get you a hotel room. If you live on the westcoast it's a forced 45 days out, and they will refuse to get you home when scheduled. In 2 yrs haven't been home for a single holiday. Constantly stranded out in the middle of nowhere because there's "no frieght". Always have the bullsht excuses as to why you're just sitting around. If your pay raises, your miles drop by damn near half. Zero communication on their end. Regardless of how much you contact dispatch, fleet managers, etc, never hear a damn thing. They act like its the greatest gift ever to work for them. Bunch of morons. Loads are constantly mis scheduled and missing info. I could go on. DON'T WORK FOR THIS COMPANY. They just had 30+ drivers quit on them in the last month. That should tell you something.

    Advice to Management

    Remember, you don't have a company without drivers. Quit hiring a bunch of window lickers in the office and out on the road. Respect the drivers instead of treating them like they aren't people.
