      Poor management

      Pros

      Consistent work and a place you could have a long career

      Cons

      Depending on the line of business you work for the hours can be 12 a day. Driver leaders are required to work 24 hrs and cell phones are used for drivers to reach you at any time of the day. A company who will understaff and overwork employees.

      Dedicated Walmart is a good account

      Pros

      + If you like to run hard, they have the miles! + Home for 34s, and usually a couple nights a week in between + They don't push you into dangerous driving, always tell you to shut down if you feel unsafe and/or when weather and road conditions are terrible + Usually allow you to run local from time to time if you are burnt out from long hauls and need a change up, if they have the freight available + Not sitting around at shippers for hours on end + Plenty of access to Walmart stores for when you need food/groceries + Probably one of the best ways to get your foot in the door at Walmart if you want to eventually drive for them when you get enough experience

      Cons

      - A lot of hours, hard to let off and slow down if you're feeling overworked especially during busy seasons (but that is most trucking anyway) - Sometimes sitting and waiting for a load - Some stores can be a little slow and a pain to get someone back to receiving to get unloaded - Winter driving (MT, ID, WY, CO, UT), snow is real in these states haha, but again that's trucking

      Pros

      The People, the opportunity, the support to our driving force, and the chance to be a part of the supply chain.

      Cons

      Carries the "we are a trucking company" moniker well. Systems are so outdated it is tough to attract and retain more innovative IT employees.
