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

    Pros

    Newer trucks was a plus. But, they have all kinds of annoying systems installed that can make driving harder.

    Cons

    Poor management, dirt lots, dirty trucks, low pay, etc.

    Advice to Management

    When I was at Rush, the management was overworked and underpaid, and it showed. The company is not run well at all. But, last I heard they were trying to change the culture and work atmosphere.

    I have been working at Rush Trucking full-time

    Pros

    Great pay if your on the Toyota account in Georgetown, KY or Buffalo, WV even more if your a team operation.

    Cons

    They lease all there trucks from Ryder so if you breakdown you deal with Ryder and they will put you in a sub unit and you have to switch back into your truck when it's fixed and that's ok but it happened a lot.

    Advice to Management

    When your trying to get something done you get the run around.

    Pros

    Great home time it's nice that the plants shutdown on holidays so you could actually be home with your family. :)

    Cons

    No RAISE, no rider policy, no pet policy, no lease purchase program. Which makes no sense when almost all of their trucks are leased and they hire owner operators.

    The communication with the driver managers is horrible no matter what you ask them they never respond all they tell you is they will send an email and get back to you but they never do and it seems like most of the time they have an attitude but if you do one little thing that involve Safety not only will you get a call and email also they send you a letter

    Advice to Management

    Work on the communication between your managers and drivers

    Give some raises or maybe start a lease purchase program to where drivers actually have an incentive to want to stay

    I worked at Rush Trucking full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Rush Trucking is out of Wayne, MI. I worked their for almost three years. I liked the administration at Rush, which is weird because with most companies. I don't like the admin. Everyone, with very few exceptions, was nice and treated the driver like a human being. The company is very safety minded, and if you have a problem with driving, because of safety, they work with you. They take good care of their equipment, and when it is time to pay the repair bill they do their best to get you out of their fast. My dispatchers were some of the nicest and most reasonable people I have ever met or dealt with.

    Cons

    My pay was average or perhaps a little above average. I asked for a raise twice but never got it. In fact, I never even got a response. Another problem I had was that it was difficult to speak to anyone above the rank of dispatcher. Their phone systems are not even designed to let you speak to the higher level administration figures or even some of the middling management. There was some vague person working at the dispatch department who I called 12 or more days in a row, and he never did call me back. The company used to give out their fuel bonuses every month, and the standards were reasonable, but later on they changed it to quarterly and standards became unreasonable. The medical insurance was substandard, I paid about 200+ per month for Blue Cross Blue Shield, and my total out of pocket per year was $6500. I want to point out that I would recommend a person working here, but not long term, and only if the pay and routes were sufficient for you.

    Advice to Management

    Dishonesty is unacceptable, and some of the bad apples in the company are given a pass when it is clearly undeserved. You guys need to pay your drivers better. You are too tight fisted with your money, and if that is because your company isn't doing well enough to pay the drivers better, then you might want to downsize or reorganize your budget.
