Driver - Solo - OTR (Former Employee), Blenker, WI – May 14, 2015
Pros: Great home terminal. Good for OTR drivers that do not have more than two years driving experience.
Cons: On the road too long and not enough time off, Pay isn't that great, Constantly driving through Chicago.
deBoer Transportation is a family owned company. The equipment is fairly worn, but kept in working order by a hard working crew of mechanics. Dispatch runs you as hard as they can though, and the company does not give but 1.5 to 2 days of home time for every 2 weeks out on the road. This is not a job for a family man. The pay is not that good. The home terminal is exceptional, for it has a big screen TV in the drivers lounge and free all you can drink coffee, and showers, and even rooms to sleep in while you wait on repairs or other things. It's Cold with a capitol C in Blenker, WI. during the winter. This company is a fairly good company to work for if you do not have much driving experience though.

Pros: on time pay, home time, drive the route you want, no
Cons: time wasting
Deboer is a decent company it's not real bad in some areas but not real great either. The site in WI is not cell phone friendly and in the middle of no where, if your truck breaks down and you're in that area prepare to be bored out of your mind. its not up to par with companies like stevens and us xpress as far as home base....only yhe bare minimum and that is just what you get. The pay is always on time at least for me. I didn't like that they waste your time on alot of loads. i would get a 1000 mile run on thursday and it wasn't due til monday. there is always someone you can contact f you have a question but your question may not be answered correctly. the truck are decent not great but if need be you can idle all night. if you keep your fm in the loop he will get you home when you ask. you get to drive the route you want no wasting time going thru small towns if it can be avoided, the have a suggested route but you don't have to follow it unlike us xpress that charges one dollar for each mile over 25 miles out of route.

Pros: miles, pay per mile
Cons: age of truck, no apu's
I actually got quite a few miles with them, and they have a miles bonus program-which I actually saw from time to time. Trucks are older than maybe some would care for but my 2006 Volvo ran well while I was their. Left cause I found a run where I'd be home more. Safety will call you if you don't approve logs or if you go over on hours. Treated fairly.
