Good company to learn how to drive T&Ts
Driver (Former Employee) – Los angeles – July 28, 2015
The company was good when I started good overtime. The kaiser health insurance is expensive, 790 a month so there goes a big chunk of your check. The union fee is 45 which is a rip off cause they dont do anything for the drivers but take your money. If you try to speak out at the safety meeting you will probably get suspended or kick out of the meeting. There is a set start time but your truck is usually late. Dispatch does not have a clue of what they are doing and most of the time they are training new dispatchers. Guys that have been there 20 years earn 20.20 an hour and guys that have been there 20 days earn 20.20 an hour. They offer no incentive but they do have a quarterly bonus and that goes based on the hours you work so if you milk it, you get more on your check and on your bonus and noone will tell you anything. They are pretty good when it comes to giving you some personal time off. Some guys leave for months at a time so thats a good thing if you like to travel. Work is handed out by seniority. If you have low seniority you will be called at any time of day or night by dispatch and they will tell you to stay home. Some guys were taking 100 bucks for two weeks. The senior drivers will tell you that they get a lot of work cause they put in 13 hours a day while the new guys are sitting home cause there was no work for them.
No one will find out if you made a new dent or scratch on the truck
Expensive health ins. And union sucks
