    Good company but DBLs Lie

    Pros

    Keep you moving. Okay pay Get home on time 98% of time Sign on bonus Keep trucks maintained Treat decent over phone

    Cons

    DBLs lie but that's an individual character flaw, not the company. Forced dispatch, try to put you on accounts without having the respect to ASK a driver if they want that account. Planners will try and overbook you if you let them, you just have to stick to your guns. No APUs so hard to make bonus during hot months. No pet policy or plans to. I'm gonna switch to a company that has a pet policy once I get 1 yr under my belt.

    Pros

    Good pay and not much else. Dispatch is lack luster and employees not treated well. Youi can get away with anything because they are afraid to fire people because they can't find enough warm bodies to fill the seats.

    Cons

    As with other trucking companies there is no work life balance. Your expected to work 12 - 14 hours every day even as a local driver. The benefits are few and not the greatest.
