    Pros

    No one breathing down your neck
    Ability to purchase your own truck with company lease program
    Set your own hours to a given extent
    Ability to go from OTR to regional or even inter-modal
    Passenger Program
    Home-time

    Cons

    Some Driver Managers who know nothing about driving a truck
    Mechanic Shops at Terminals that sometimes take their time getting you back on the road
    Some Trip Planners make me wonder how they even made it to work

    Advice to Management

    Hire more DM's and Planners from with-in. People who have the experience of driving on the road and know what it's like and what it takes to get the freight where it needs to go on time. You can't deliver 100mph freight with a 62mph truck. Overall this is a great company.

    Pros

    Decent culture, higher level of trust than most companies which was nice. Good about allowing you to be more geared toward results than methods.

    Cons

    Very clicky. Sometimes I would see people advance faster than others based on who they knew not what they new. Could be very political

    Advice to Management

    Management should pay more attention to the guys in the trenches, the ones getting the water to the end of the row.
