Contract Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – October 26, 2015
Gainey Trans. is a good place to get started in trucking,and get some experience.Management is professional,and capable. This is a good job for a single person who has no kids. Not so much for a person who has a family. I was only at home for 2 &1/2 days once every 1 and 1/2 months. I worked a full 70 hours every week. And after taxes i only brought home about $500 a week.

The days are all the same. Pick up trailers and dropped off shipment. I learned how to drive tractor/trailer. They were going out of business so no one cared about anybody. Co-workers were terrible everyone looking out for themselves. Never being home as promised. I did like touching ground in 38 states.

Solo Driver (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – June 20, 2013
The company was going through a change of ownership, and the drivers suffered due the lack of miles driven. The inconsistencies in pay took a toll on me and my financial responsibilities. I found myself stuck in place in place for sometimes three days waiting for a load. I most enjoyed making friends along the way, some I am still in contact with today.
I was job closer to home.
Pay varied from week to week due to lack of mile given by dispatchers.
