Regional, OTR and Local Driver (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – January 25, 2016
Ok I'll start with saying, that I worked there a number of years ago . 2004 to 2009 . So as I read these complaints I'm laughing my as off . First when I started in detriot our yard was be hind a fuel station sh hole . They up graded to Romulus yard. Our equipment was junk as we had a mix of trucks from White, to freight liner, to sterlings and internationals , they up graded , when I started we didn't have auto shift trucks yet. Training was 2 weeks in Gary and 2 weeks with trainer , not much for training and they have up graded that too.As far as pay on dedicated runs ,it's simple , they bid the run at X amount per mile and that is what you get . Want to make more and raises you have to run open board .(it's not rocket science ) now for the bad lol I worked for them through the some bad economic times and left for the way they treated us senior drivers. First they took are holiday pay ,then our on time bonus and then our safty bonus . Didn't put out bid sheets for years and when asked was told I had to go OTR and if I didn't like it to turn in my keys, turned them in to Keith the next Monday , haven't looked back since. But it's not a bad company to start , do your year and move on.
Not a place to stay to long as I did
