      Good Starter OTR Company

      Pros

      Good Fleet Managers. Great pay for no experience and starting in OTR. Choice of Percentage or CPM Orientation and Training is 7 weeks, but it is the best in the industry. Home every weekend if desired. 2 Retirement Plans, 401k, and ESOP

      Cons

      Expect to work at least 14 hours a day. Detention Pay, don't expect to see anything till after a year of employment. Salary, maximizes after about 7-8 months. Only way to make more money is to stay out most weekends, or become a trainer (currently expect only 1-2 trainees a year at 5 weeks at a time). Also getting a position with Specialized or the Boat Division.

      Pros

      The 579 Petes are very nice. Their main terminal, in Des Moines, is very nice as well. Far better then most other companies. They can get most drivers home every weekend. Great starter company; fresh out of TD school.

      Cons

      You must have the interior of their trucks detailed when you go in for service. If not they will shut you down until the interior meets their standards. All your Flatbed gear must be out of sight. Trucks are slow. Must use their CB & accessories. Loaner trucks suck. They don't honor first empty first to get a load. Too many rules. Your pay is flexible; do something wrong & they'll keep some.

      Pros

      One of the best privately owned flatbed companies in the industry to work for. Pay is good and they do everything they can to get you home every weekend.

      Cons

      Per diem would be nice or the ability to stay in a hotel at least once or twice a week. They have this policy about not wearing earrings.

      Thanks for the review! :) TMC offers per diem to drivers. It is optional so drivers decide whether to participate in the program or not, based on their own preference.

      Pros

      I have been averaging $1000 a week. I get home every weekend and have a great relationship with my fleet manager

      Cons

      It's strictly flatbed (no box trailer or tanker) so you have some unpleasant shippers and receivers. Governed trucks and no apu
