No respect to drivers from some office people.
victim (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLMarch 11, 2013
Pros: they will answer to god one day...
Cons: it hasn't happened yet.
I worked at Cypress Truck in Jacksonville, FL for about 4 months. I was hired as a dump driver with no experience. There is only one dispatcher for the dump drivers. From the first conversation, he spoke to me in a very condescending way. During the first 90 days I put up with his childish actions because I needed the job and I was told that he’s like – more... that to the new guy. I took “new guy” as on probation. During the 4th month he got worse and his tone and body language changed to disdain and he began repeating my questions back to me, then not answer them. It got to the point I sat twice with the owners son & terminal manager (same person) and explained to him that my dispatcher is creating a hostile work environment. He supported him by stating that he’s been with the company for over 12 years and does his job well…which is true. But he is still a liability to the company and also lowers the value of man. Ultimately, due to a situation, I resigned from the company. All he had to do was stop being a waste of human life. – less

good company, good pay
Driver (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLDecember 5, 2012
Pros: travel, pay
Cons: not enough home time, run out of designated area
this company is an ok company to work for if you enjoy being on the road a lot and not being at home with your family. They say home on weekends but its not true, maybe every other weekend.

You will stay busy year round
Regional Driver (Former Employee), Jacksonville, Fl.August 16, 2012
Pros: home weekends, steady work
Cons: lots of work you don't get paid for
Miles are okay, pay is okay but you do a lot of extras for free and they only pay $5 to tarp a load which is a joke. You get home on the weekends. They have benefits but the insurance is expensive. Safety department has A TON of rediculious rules. They treat drivers like children. Drivers need to be treated better.
