    Pros

    If you are just new in this industry and need training it might be good for you.

    Cons

    To much running around looking for empty trailer.
    They dont pay you for pick up empty trailer of was short distance which you driving for them free.
    SMs are tirrble they have no D clue about how to assist the diver and most of them are little kids.
    Pay is so low you can start for .32 pm when other companies pay .46 and .48 and that tells a lot about how cheap they are.
    Dash cams are for my opinion are great I call it but saffer but for them they usa it to acuse you for anything.

    Advice to Management

    Please for the love of God kick those ignorant DMs out and hire who drove trucks and capable for being DM because they knows better what drivers going through not little kids with 0 clue please.

    Pros

    Will at least communicate with drivers. May not fix your problems but you don't feel totally ignored.Will put you up in a motel when needed

    Cons

    First week I started my truck broke down and instead off giving me another, I suffered for a whole week being down
    And only getting paid 75 a day for layover

    Advice to Management

    Allow more control over equipment decisions at actual terminals not corporate office. Doesn't make sense that there are terminal managers that are not allowed to make truck assignments in emergency situations.
