    Pros

    As a driver you are home nightly except on some cases you have a layover , but company pays for hotel and gives you a meal allowance . Very professional atmosphere and they practice safety to the point and they mean it . The management are very knowledgeable in the SOP and the product they manufacture .The pay is weekly and the medical , dental and 401k are extremely reasonable if not above average . They really look out for their drivers . If you want to work and want OT and top pay , I highly recommend .

    Cons

    I have no cons to mention .

    Advice to Management

    Please keep up the good work .
