Good starting pay right out of driving school, excellent dispatchers to talk too' I enjoyed working with my driver manager
long wait to get a local position

If you are a driver right out of school, this is the company to work for. I can not think of any truck companies out there that would hire a student driver and pay them 55k a year. That is what you would make in the first year. They have an excellent training program. You will learn good driving skills.
You throw freight!! The pay scale is structured so the only way you can make real money is to throw their freight. the mileage pay is garbage. And it is hard grueling work. The best thing to do is work for them for the first 6 months out of truck school. you'll make 26-28k in that 6 months. Your body will hurt though. After 6 months apply to non freight throwing companies where the pay is more structured to miles and driving. After 6 months many companies will hire you at higher rates to even out the gap between dot and real trucking wages.
