    I worked at Maines full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Expierence. Better than OTR no touch freight. Building relationships with customers. Driving a 10 speed cascadia day cab. Money isnt too bad. No one can take the added months of accident free expierence from you.

    Cons

    Allot. No one in management whom you talk to on a regular basis have ever driven a truck. They really dont deserve their job. Its like the prerequesite is anything but the job they are managing.

    Training. Was trained by an over qualified driver. Trainer M. Tought me how to do it the way its supposed to be done. Similar product together. Nicely organized. He had plenty of CDL expierence. OTR, with company for years. Overqualified because he should be in management. Deserves the job. Period. Had to be "certified" to be on my own through trainer "A". Compareable to a security guard who thinks hes a cop. Uneducated when it comes to the equiptment hes operating. Told me i would damage the tractor using the jake brakes which he called "emergency brakes". Lol.

    Their local routes are sweet. But some routes are impossible to finish within your 14/hr clock. Not impossible every time. But lets say humans make mistakes and they dont plan for them(on some routes). They will have you work a 15/hr shift and be confused as to why you cant be there within 9 hours. "You have a 10hr reset?". Lol

    Equiptment is like fighting a pack of wolves. For dolleys. But once you get some you dont get overly fatigued.

    They have this image they like to play instead of just being honest.

    Advice to Management

    To whom? New york? Make the senior drivers managers. No managers should be anything but a former driver. The problems will fix themselves.

    I have been working at Maines full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you enjoy setting your own rules and times you come to work, then this is the perfect job for you!

    Cons

    No organization what so ever! Hourly people set all the rules. When they start, when they leave and how much work they will do.

    Advice to Management

    Get on one page and have the courage to stick together and make firm decisions. Find experienced leadership to lead.

    Pros

    None minus getting some experience in if your new they'll hire anyone.

    Cons

    Crappy management poor pay per mile, cheap, lie to you and say they will send you with a helper just to get you to come in for a route. When you arrive you have no helper. Will make you sleep in your sleeper don't want to pay a hotel. Attempt to intimidate people into doing routes by saying bring your uniforms in if you don't do it. They think there in a position to fire people and they aren't, can't keep a driver since they don't treat them with respect. Dispactch feels entitled especially transportation managment apparently they can do it all, no need for drivers just third party companys and send helpers with these drivers.

    Advice to Management

    Fire and rehire everyone in the office don't know what there doing and lie way to much. You can call sometimes and get forwarded all day because no one knows what there doing or is in meetings all day. Do not respect holidays or there drivers all they care about is there customers and will run you to the ground.
