    The worst job I've ever had

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -They allow animals, with more lenient rules than other companies.

    Cons

    -The pay is lower than other companies. -The forced dispatch is tiring to say the least. -Planners will claim they want to make you the most amount of money. However, they will end up causing you quite a bit of stress. -Say goodbye to any free time whatsoever. You need to work at least two weeks to get two days of home time. -They have tried to get me to use personal time to finish loads, which is very illegal.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.
