Over the road driver (Former Employee), Louisville, KY – June 4, 2014
Was a great job - lots of work loading saddles to place cabs on one after another. Wasn't very fond of having to catch a plane at the last minute and fly to another location. Had to make special arrangements for tools.
Transportation Specialist (Former Employee), Portland, OR – March 9, 2014
Pros: many monetary perks once you learned the system.
Cons: dangerous work environment.
A dangerous working climate but training was complete. All new drivers were required to run with a trainer after the initial 2 week training period. This was excellent as everyone experienced what the real job world was like. Most of the drivers I went through the initial training period with did not like it. I believe this was due to the work load – more... being very heavy and time off was scarce. Un-decking the trucks had to be performed by the numbers. A step missed could be disastrous. I enjoyed going to Canada especially to Nova Scotia & Ontario. – less
OTR Driver (Former Employee), San Antonio, TX – June 12, 2013
Pros: pay, benefits, hometime
Cons: canada, airports and undecking trucks for picky dealers.
You have a good benefits package with retirement after 4-5 years of service will freeze $1000/month. Hotels every night and always driving new equipment. Fly miles add up quickly and so do the hotel points.
Driver (Current Employee), Cleveland,N.C. – May 3, 2013
Pros: great health care great benefits great retirement
Cons: time spent in airports
I've been with att 8 1/2 yrs. The first week with my trainer i knew if i was going to drive for a living this is the job for me.l read two reviews of former drivers that trashed the company they sound like new hires that didnt stay long enough to learn the ropes. I tell new hires to stay for a year and learn the ropes and in that time they will learn – more... how to make good money and love the job.Yes there has been layoffs,my first three yrs.here i was layed off two times. 5 1/2 months each i took that time to do things around the house ect. When they called i came back.Now i don't have to worry about layoffs .I've undeck trucks in weather from 44 below to 115 degrees its all good.This job has spoiled me. – less

If you are looking for Low Income Company to drive for this is The One.
Professional CDL A Driver (Former Employee), San Antonio Texas Terminal – September 19, 2012
Pros: really nothing.
Cons: very low income, danger and hard work job, bad management.....
You will be on training for 5 to 6 wweks performing very danger and hard job earning around $400 (top gross) weekly basis. If you survive financially you will be disapointed with a huge not paid downtime inside the company waiting for trucks and to be dispatch at the terminals as well as outside factors (cheapest flight to bring you back to terminals, – more... waiting to undeck trucks, waiting for dealers sign off trucks and the list goes on). Good luck if you try to collect any money from pay roll for anything else them your very low miles. They fight with you. Its hard even to collect trip expenses. Be careful they love to (loose) big invoices and discount from you. This company is a joke and one of the highest turn over on the truck business. – less

Driver (Former Employee), San Antonio, TX – March 27, 2012
Pros: management, benefits
Cons: to much sitting around
The job was great! It was all the sitting around that a person would do. You lose a day dispatching if not more and you lose a day traveling back to any of the terminals. Pay is really good for the industry. Full benefits at no cost. Union job. Just hard to get miles when you lose so much time
