    Pros

    They have good pay, and are really approachable. I'm a linehaul driver, and they keep good equipment, also there's a really positive attitude amongst all employees.

    Cons

    If you're a line driver, the wait is extremely long to get a bid run.

    Advice to Management

    Get more linehaul runs.

    Pros

    Great pay, lots of work, the company provides you with all of the tools that are necessary to successfully complete your daily tasks.

    Cons

    If you have hours, you belong to them. Don't expect to go home right after your run, you may be in the yard and getting ready to head home, then without warning, you have another assignment.

    Advice to Management

    Try to lay out company policies clearly, don't treat employee's like property, allow drivers to get the rest and home time they need.
