Great company to work for if you don't judge from others' bad experiences.
Driver (Current Employee) – Rock Hill, SC – April 29, 2016
I've read a lot of reviews and did my research and against better judgement, signed on for the long haul. It's been 2 months now and I will say that they have treated me very well. I have had the opportunity to be trained by a certified trainer with a good history with the company. I can see how people get irritated by the pay, truck issues, and other drivers/managers, but the bottom line is that this job is what you make of it. If you call ahead to verify load info, pickups, and drops, you can plan around and prepare for inconveniences. This job has been described to me as a lifestyle choice and it is just that, a completely different lifestyle. You need to be able to live on the road and away from home for long periods of time. As for new drivers, the real world advice I have for you is this: Take your time, don't push yourself too hard, and have some patience. Like any new job, there's a starting point and you don't make outrageous money right off the rip. A month, two, maybe three? I can't give anyone a definate time frame because everyone's situation is a little different. As for the driver managers.... Be kind to them and they will reward you. Hate on them and their wrath will reign down. If you have issues with another driver, try to work it out and if all else fails, call your driver manager, and try to get re-assigned with a different co-driver. They are good people and do realize not every two people can work so close to each other. Nonetheless, try to be understanding and patient.
