    I have been working at Raider Express full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay is the best you will get for someone with no experience. Only time my check was less than $850 and that’s a bad week, is when I went home for a few days. Usually average $950-1250. And I’m talking take home pay. Not Gross pay

    Cons

    60 mph trucks. Get blown pass on the highway 24/7. Trucks honking, dangerously trying to pass you up on 1 lane highways. Got to be on point at all times.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Raider Express full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good place to start and get experience, once you get experienced move on. Instructors were good and half of dispatch is good. You can make some money here but you to stay out weeks or months at a time. If you’re single with not a lot of responsibility this a good situation. Equipment is good. I’m in a 2020 volvo

    Cons

    Pay is low, communication between dispatch, payroll and safety is not good. Will have a lot of time sitting due to lack of communication. Sometime I have to call dispatch several times. Sometimes they’ll forget I’m empty. No APUs so if you idle your truck in the summer it will hurt your fuel bonus. Dishonest recruiters. Will charge you thousands of dollars for hotel fees if you’re coming from outside the Fort Worth, TX for 4 week training. Still paying out my check weekly for hotel fees. Safety here is a joke. Insurance is really high.

    Pros

    They teach you to drive to start your career as a OTR Driver, if you make it through the program, many don't. Out of a class of 22 students I think 5 made it through, make them like you or you won't make it through. Weekly pay is higher that you can get without a college degree or industry experience, however you have to stay gone all the time to get that pay. After taxes and insurance the bring home is between is between $700-$800 a week. That is if you are committed to stay away from home for 28-29 days a month, usually driving from 8 to 10 hours a day. We drive slow, under 60 mph. Slower drivers make more fuel bonus and rank higher as a driver, which gets you transferred into newer equipment sooner.

    Cons

    Home time really hurts your paycheck. One day off can give you almost half a paycheck. Insurance is extremely high, $291 a week for a family. The yard is too cramped, it is hard to get trailers into small spaces. Sometime you only have a foot on each side of the trailer when you get it parked. They are building a new facility that should take care of that though, not sure when they are expecting it to get complete.

    Excellent equipment, new trucks for those of us who are their best drivers

    Cons

    Treat drivers like scum. We are a nuisance to the corporate office. Zero appreciation and no respect.
