The Fleet Managers were easy enough to work with and I was kept loaded with decent mileage. I got in about 3,000 per week. After about a month the runs I was given were short and they were consecrated in the mid West. 700 miles here, 700 mile there, you get the picture. I'm used to running new Jersey to Portland and back. Well, you're not going to get that here.
My biggest issue with this company is getting to my hometime on time... NEVER happened

Made great miles, modern equipment with the small extras included. Good number of terminals with lots of amenities. Beautiful terminals; Tunnel HIll, GA, Irving,TX, Olive Branch, MS, Springfield IN, Fontana, CA was decent.
Same as most big companies; you must fight for your home time and sometimes get ignored by fleet manager. Mismanaged and one manager told me she was x amount of a great trucker. Was told how to run my hours of service.1

Familiar routes most everyone in the safety department seem nice and eager to help and honest
The fleet managers play god with your hours miles and loads they lie threaten talk to you like a child or disrespectfully

the pay is good and people i deliver to are awesome and feel they are part of my family. i would do anything for them to help to make their job and mine easier.
it depends on the management team. if your fleet manager doesn't care about supporting the team and makes it harder to do you job in a timely manner. then it becomes unsafe for you to do your job. my manager has not only made it hard for me to do it in a timely manner but only cares about himself or ones he has made friends with therefore not being equal to all.1

Decent pay, high pay potential as long as you keep moving. Friendly fleet managers and HR overall decent company
Little to no concern about your personal schedule, whether it's scheduling days off for appointments or just going home. Constantly have to check your settlement sheets to mane sure you're getting what you are dup.

Not much unless you have a good fleet/dispatch manager that you get along with
A bad week I make minimum wage and I'm not even home every night. Never can hardly get you home on time (even after staying out months at a time). Ever since they got their new CEO and administration things have started to go downhill1

Room for growth, if you don't want to stay a driver, there are plenty of office positions.
Weekend dispatch, night dispatch. As long as your stacked on Friday with your m-f fleet manager your good.

had a great fleet manager until they told her she manages too many people so i got a new and horrible manager.
bad communication and they will mess up your pay to scan papers and home time

This is a good company for drivers who are just starting out. But having patience is a must. For first timers, the pay is competitive. A good company to get the experience needed to be a great driver.
Newer fleet managers are hired that don't have the experience or the knowledge of what drivers deal with daily. The driver to fleet manager ratio is on average, for newer FM's (35/1), for the more seasoned FM's (50/1). That's just the daily 8-5/ M-F Fleet managers. Nights and weekends are even worse. Getting through to dispatch on nights and weekends is virtually impossible. The planners are so overwhelmed at times, that they don't pay attention to the hours that you have left on your clock or whether you have home time coming up. Next thing you know, they're dumping a load going the opposite way or too far for you travel. I could keep going, but I'd run out of space.3
