    Pros

    Nice Co-Workers. Field trips are nice if you kiss the right person for a schedule.

    Too much politics in and out of dispatch and front office. Part time job is a full time job with part time pay.

    Start listening to the complaints of drivers and monitors. Very unhappy people with some people in dispatch.

    Pros

    Hours are great and you don't have nobody all on your back unlike working at a warehouse. The kids are great and I can see the impact on the kids I have being a positive role model. Plus you can get stuff done in the middle of the day like shopping/doctor appointments and etc. All around great place to work 💪💯 and shout to the mechanic's they're awesome too 🔧🔨

    Cons

    No con's just the training isn't paid but getting the Cdl is worth it
