Not a good place to be...
Truck driver (Former Employee), Coppell, TexasJanuary 11, 2015
Pros: weekends off
Cons: almost everything
If you're ok with racking up violations on your CDL and trashing your CSA score while your terminal manager treats you like dirt, this may be the place for you. If you work where I did, You will routinely be expected to operate unsafe equipment. You will be expected to drive in icy conditions and you will have the understanding that if something goes wrong, You will lose your job.
You will work for a terminal manager who is quiet frankly a bully. He will patronize other employees in front of you and will do the same to you in front your co-workers. He will read personal information from job applicants applications aloud in employee meetings while making fun of the applicant. He will bring up footage from the drive cam in your truck and make fun of you in employee meetings. He will constantly talk about terminating employees and brag about giving former employees a bad reference.
Knowing what I know now, If I had it to do over, I would not have worked here.

Great place to work
Driver (Current Employee), Oklahoma City OkDecember 13, 2014
Pros: pay, equipment, management, benefits
Cons: unloading volume freight, delays waiting on relays
I have been looking for this job for 28 years . I have well over 2 million miles accident free . I was a union driver for many of those . I have driven for greyhound and have driven for the music industry. In other words I have tried them all . After being promised a management opportunity at YRC after 10 years of employment and being denied it due to union membership I was ready to just find another line of work at 49 years of age . This place has given me a new perspective on employer employee relationships. They treat me like a king . The equipment is top notch , management top notch , and pay is better than you can make at any OTR job and you sleep in your own bed at night . Benefits are very affordable and I have more quality time with my family than I have ever had in this business . It can be tough on heavy days at certain volume stops but none of the freight is heavy it is just bulky . Give this place a shot if you have drive , commitment , and integrity , if you are focused on safety and professionalism and you will be successful at Blackhorse . If you are a slacker or supertrucker and drive like an idiot , this place probably isn't for you.

Local w/o hourly pay equals working for free
Local driver (Former Employee), Reading, Pa.August 29, 2014
Pros: equipment
Cons: on a 60hr week short about 350.00
Another company that gets away with paying by the mile. Delays picking up, delivering, construction, accidents, weather, no OT over 40hrs pay, etc. A excellent Class A driver is always going to be compensated for his time. Let the lesser drivers put in 8-10 hrs a week for free.

Company Screwed me over
Driver (Former Employee), Stevens Point WIAugust 24, 2014
Pros: nothing
Cons: no communication. lies to you.
I was just hired and then fired by this company. No communication at all. I was called and asked if i could start ASAP by this company. The company had all my info. They Knew how old i am. I have 5 years with my CDL and have plenty of experience. I proceeded to accept the job and left my job i was at. Gave my old job no 2 weeks notice because i was begged to start ASAP. I was told pay was better and work hours were better. Pretty much told me i am set for a good career with them. 4 days after i was hired....and i completed my training i was told i can no longer work for them. Due to my age apparently. Now i am out of work thanks to them. Not a very smart company if they do not know there own Polices. I am now back on the JOBLESS market thanks to this company

great place to work as long as you are willing to run
Driver (Current Employee), Center Valley, PAMay 7, 2014
Pros: pay benefits flexibility
Cons: long days odd start times
Dispatch is fair and the money is great. You must be willing to work but if you can take the long days the pay reflects your effort. Overall its still trucking long days traffic ......... but the company is growing fast and is safety conscious. Well maintained equipment and best benefits I have found.

Delivery Driver (Former Employee), Oak Forest, ILFebruary 26, 2014
Pros: paid good
Cons: insurance, poor management
Management didn't want to hear about bad equipment or the poorly maintained equipment! I would just show up and do my job. Pay was good, but very physical! Was paid per route so if it took 11 hr or 18 hr paid the same!

Black Horse Carriers Plymouth, Mi
Trailer Switcher (Former Employee), Plymouth, Mi bakery accountFebruary 4, 2014
Cons: bad hours, split days off
Not a good company to work for, when I was at the Plymouth location most of the drivers did not appear as if they were all that pleased, I heard a lot of grumbling.

The on-site manager for the bakery account did not really seem to have much experience with mediating between the customer and driver if there was a problem.

I switched trailers with a day cab there were a lot of moves the facility did not have adequate space so you would be double dropping trailers to make space, while competing with the bakery drivers for space.

The hours were weird 3-11 AM. What really bothered me was the 7pm-3am switcher had very little work to do but would not fuel the truck, I would ask the manager to have him fuel the truck but he would never fuel the truck.

I could handle the moves what I had a problem with was the traffic director (who had a bad reputation around the place) was always rude and would yell more than talk and beat on the door of the truck.

I had been switching for many years before I worked there in busy environments. I wish I would have left the first day. The doors were very poorly marked and instead of trailer numbers they would call out doors so if you were in front of the trailers it was easy to get the wrong door which I did on my first day and dumped some bread, I volunteered to quit but they insisted I stay.

There were other wrong door accidents by drivers who had been there longer than I was, pretty dangerous, it was only after that precautions were taken by the bakery, large legible door numbers, red/green lights installed on doors and calling out trailer numbers – more... instead of door numbers.

I was there six months when on a busy rainy day of the usual battle for space with the outside drivers the sweetheart traffic director came out complaining it was a half hour before the end of my shift so I just gave him back what he had been dishing out finished my switch and quit on the spot. My supervisor instead of trying to resolve the situation did nothing when he could have mediated the problem, he was like a deer in the headlights. No big surprise though because he would not see to it the truck got fueled by the switcher who had down time.

I regret the incident but really regret taking the job with Black Horse Carriers. – less

Office Staff (Former Employee), QuakertownDecember 19, 2013
Pros: there really are none
Cons: hostile work envoronment, immature and very unprofessional!
My interview was fantastic. She gave me the impression it was very professional and a great place to work. This was not the case at all. "BEWARE" THIS PLACE IS TOXIC AND YOU WILL FEEL LKE YOUR IN HIGH SCHOOL AGAIN. I worked in the office and the two girls I worked with were very unprofessional and immature. I couldn't wait to get out of there. Started my job search 3 days after I started. Very dissappointed.

Good company just hard hrs when having a kids.
Driver (Former Employee), Corpus Christi, TXNovember 11, 2013
Pros: being my own boss and pay
Cons: the hrs
My night started by picking up my load and driving down to the valley from corpus christi. I delivered auto parts to the Napa stores also picking up returns and invocies and payments. I was the only employee down here all others were up in S.A, Including all my bosses. The most enjoyable part was that i was my own boss and incharge of the things i did, But if something did happen i could call my boss and he would always help out no matter the time. T he hard part off the job was the hrs and time it took away from my daughter but pay was really good so when we spent time together it was always fun.

Company Driver (Current Employee), Chicago, ILOctober 2, 2013
I have been a company driver for Black Horse for 8 years and think its a great company. I worked for three other carriers before Black Horse and none of them come close in salary and benefits. When I had a health issue a few years back, they were flexible and helpful. From Top Management down to the admin staff, great people.
