Great Company to drive for!!!
OTR Driver (Current Employee) –  LaVergne, TnFebruary 28, 2015
I came to Beacon b/c they have good equipment, NO LEASE PURCHASE PROGRAMS or O/OPS (owner operators), they don't run Florida or the West Coast!!!
They have a good solid freight base mostly Drop & Hook where you can also reload at the same place you deliver too!!
I think that's where some drivers get spoiled and only want this easy cake freight well (BUZZER) doesn't work that way, you gotta take the rough freight too....Every company has some tough freight and tough Shippers & Receivers.
I also love Beacon b/c they don't "MICRO MANAGE" or Babysit their drivers!!!
They're attitude is Hey, you came to us you said you were a Professional Truck Driver so prove it.....They will work with you if you let them know you need help but not 2hrs before your p/up or delivery time, you have to let them know.
They don't run tight delivery freight, drivers make it that way.
In my opinion; the problems at Beacon are caused by the drivers, you know the bad few that every company has.
I hope Beacon's not one of those companies that rather run away all their good Pro drivers and replace them with what we call "D/HEADS".... Only time will tell I guess.
All I know for sure is that Beacon is my last stop, if the bad drivers can ruin a good company like Beacon then why go drive somewhere else, others must have bad drivers too.
Pros
No Lease Purchase or O/Ops or Florida or West Coast!!
Cons
No Salt or Snow Plow for terminal

Good equipment, work place.
Over the road (OTR) truck driver (Former Employee) –  Mason, TNJuly 8, 2013
Enjoyed working here, small company with sound values. Owner believed in making it profitable for everyone. Lots of freight when a driver really wanted to work. Did allow small dogs/cats when I left in 2010. Good dispatchers, kept the drivers busy, load planners learned how a driver liked to run and would work to keep that driver rolling.
Pros
good miles, good equipment, good people to work for and with.
Cons
would have preferred pete 387s, not the volvos the company had.
