Pros

Most of the freight they haul is out and back. Their facilities are imaculant and the most modern I've ever seen. The driver managers are really nice.

Cons

I loved working there. But by the time I got to that company I was exhausted with the trucking industry as a whole. The hours at my previous companies really had taken a toll on me. Therefore I was not able to work there long. If I had to do it over again I would take a year or so off than return to work for that company.

Advice to Management

If an employee works 40 hours a week he or she (not truckers) works 2000 hours a year. This includes paid vacations. A truck driver because of staying out for such long period of time will in my humble opinion reach that mark at four to six months. They of course will be frustrated and grumpy and probably quit such as I did.

Once I had quit I regretted it a few months later. If I had received an invitation to come back by mail or other means I would have came back.

Trying to rehire those they perceive to be productive would give them an edge in a high turnover industry.

    I worked at Big G Express full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, opportunities for advancement, creative freedom to motivate Drivers in different ways.

    Cons

    Over the road truck dispatching pays very good, it is a difficult assignment for consistent positive results. This is more a fact of this position everywhere, not just Big G.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on Trucking!
