      Best reason was you were rarely at the same place twice when otr

      Cons

      Safety always tried to hang you. Pay wasn't competitive with industry standards, dispatchers more concerned with bonus than safety, breakdown would leave you stranded for several hours after automated reply which is really annoying when your truck won't move and a cop is trying to ticket you for a break down, dispatch often lies about delivery times making timing a complete pain. Had loads sitting 15 minutes away from customer that have been sitting on lot for a week past delivery time. Only to have to listen to customer forcibly ask why the load is late after I pick it up and have it there as fast as possible. Lost fuel bonus and idle bonus in favor of a lottery you were lucky to win $100 every 3 years.

      Pros

      Fantastic Benefits, Nice Equipment, Good Hometime.

      Cons

      Too many drop and hooks in one shift. They cater to their "NetOps" home daily drivers. I've hooked as many as 5 trailers in a day. If you're paid by the mile, that's not a great $ day.
