I would not recommend this job to anyone! High driver turn around and pathetic benefits.
LTL Driver (Former Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIAugust 30, 2016
This was without a doubt the worst job I have ever had. No overtime pay regardless if you work weekends or seventy hours in a week. Add to that bi-weekly pay and a dispatcher who tries to force you to violate federal laws and writes you up for things you can't control round out this bottom of the barrel company.
Pros
Honestly nothing.
Cons
Everything.

Terminal Manager (Former Employee) –  South Bend, INJuly 19, 2016
All dispatching is done from out of state. Upper management sees drivers as a problem when you contact them. they lease most of the tractors so that's a good thing.
Pros
nice customers
Cons
management

horrible company
Driver (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJuly 19, 2016
Management at the Indianapolis terminal is the worst I had ever seen.
The manager is an moron. He has no clue - what he's doing. They run you 400 plus miles a day and tell you it's only 7 or 8 stops starting in Indy to Terra haute to Evansville everyday.
Then they complain when you work 14 plus hours a day. Then they start screwing with you leaving you home saying there is no work.
Then put all of the blame on you when something doesn't get done.
Pros
none
Cons
Management long hours

Very high past work place. You have to be able to do ten things at one time. Have to know how to deal with truck drivers. This job is not for the weak people.

Worst company I ever worked for
Driver (Former Employee) –  Kenosha, wiSeptember 10, 2014
They will work you 70 hours a week, keep you out on the road in a foot of snow, and they don't pay overtime. Benefits are a joke. Run away from this place.
Pros
None

Delivery Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Kenosha, WIJuly 16, 2012
Loaded own trucks after going over delivery bills. Knew for sure had everything and was loaded in correct order for delivery.
After six months, local terminal manager was let go and not replaced. We had to work through a manager in Kenosha via 800 number.
Problem was, he didn't always have all the information he needed to work with us.
Day we were shut down, he new nothing of it, was very upset when he found out, and gave us his home phone number to use as a reference on job applications.
Pros
everything about the job.
Cons
no advanced notice of terminal closing.
