    I have been working at Hirschbach Motor Lines full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great miles. Some weeks I'll get 3200 in 6 days and some only 2200 but in the end it makes for a great yearly salary. Home every weekend and great equipment with low miles. Rare to have breakdown problems.

    Cons

    Bumpy at 1st I'll admit there were some weeks I'd barely get 2k miles but after some stern phone calls and showing them I was here to work they turned it around. Company drivers trucks are set at 61!!! Ridiculous and in my opinion a little dangerous.

    Advice to Management

    If you don't want drivers to speed when not on the interstate then ease off the restrictors. We're out here to run and will make up for lost time any way possible.

    Pros

    Night and weekend pay incentives. Tool purchasing plan. Nice shop.

    Trying to look busy when there is no work to be done. (How many times can you mop a floor?)

    Research other company's shops see how they run. Pick the pros then apply what was researched.

    I have been working at Hirschbach Motor Lines full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Recruiters do their jobs to get drivers in the door for orientation. it's that potential hire's responsibility to do the research and substantiate the song and dance. Brad Pinchuk genuinely cares for his employees. Work hard for the company, and they will work hard for you. Issues are resolved as long as you present them in a professional manor. Plenty of miles to be had. New equipment (trucks and trailers) Renovations at company terminals. Dispatch is top notch, find a dispatch that melds with your driving style and personality. Hirschbach is safety conscious but reality based.

    Cons

    Still some communication issues on nights and weekends, other than that, AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION and BIG RIG should never be in the same sentence. (:

    Advice to Management

    Keep stepping in the right direction!

    Pros

    Driver manager Michelle Demaio is a first class human being! Drivers could not ask for a better driver manager! Right now there is nothing else good about hirschbach! Company is a straight up joke!!

    Cons

    Load planners in East Dubuque Illinois(they are complete morons!) tractors governed at 62! Pay sucks! Have to threaten to quit just to go home for home time! No matter how bad u think other carriers are hirschbach is 20 times worse!! Safety dept. is a joke! Driver services are a straight up joke!!

    Advice to Management

    Hire load planners that have a clue as to what's going on and know how to treat hardworking drivers! Close the business and start all over again!!

    Pros

    Very supportive to their drivers, they want their drivers to succeed. The drivers success is the company's success. Amazing lease program unlike any other I've seen in the industry. If you can't make money it's the driver's fault certainly not the company. Very family oriented. Everyone from hr to dm's, payroll, and upper management very helpful and friendly. Will bend over backwards to help in anyway they can

    Cons

    Can't think of any.
