      Pros

      None. I would argue going to Swift. These people say they're top of the line but I've seen better.

      Cons

      The Dispatchers are a joke. They are rude and dumb. They will bark first and ask questions later. You have to fight with them to get home and they will "forget" about your home time. They don't pay you for sitting around and you will not be paid to drive hundreds of miles for an MT trailer. They will force you to waste days sitting in a terminal to get your truck forcefully inspected. This company is also filled with liars in all departments. Recruiters will lie through their teeth so that you will come along. Werner will tell you to go somewhere nice and early and then you realize that you didn't have to come early they just say that so you can be there at whatever time they like. Safety will tell you that you have to speak to them and next thing you know you sit around for 2-3 hours just to be told you can call them to do a survey on the phone.

      Good Start for a new driver, Take a dedicated for money

      May 15, 2019 - Driver (Dedicated and OTR) in Ardmore, OK
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      For the OTR account: Decent amount of freight. Cool trainers. Decent compensation. They will work with you. Home time is the expect 14 out 2 home. For the Dollar General Account: Cool managers out of Ardmore, Oklahoma. Freight everyday. If you are willing to work 1500 a week is easy as a company driver I made that constantly. Good trucks and a lot of choice if you are picky Lots of services for the drivers. You get to see your dispatcher and Fleet Manager in person a few times a week.

      Cons

      OTR: Very little downtime pay, sometimes it can be a logistical nightmare and you CAN end up with a short week with little pay due to downtime. Breakdowns are a headache with poor maintenance. Dollar General Account: Trailers are in VERY bad condition. Rollatainers are VERY heavy and the work is almost impossible for one person. You will constantly be pulling into stores and towns where trucks can barely fit. Store managers can be real jerks sometimes.
