still active with gold spur
driver (Current Employee), kingsbury txMarch 6, 2014
Pros: nothing
Cons: payrate, abuse of driver, equipment, managment
stay away, payrate change to 45 cpm n 25 each stop, leases r no more than 30 miles apart, so there is no miles n they dont pay for waiting time. equipment is bad, the have some new petes but only use by seniority drivers. stay away, ohh btw the yard is located 45 miles east of san antonio. n they cancel 30 bucks a day perdiem. no company is perfect – more... but in this one r a bunch of liars running the show. – less

Mgr Toni (Former Employee), Minot, NDAugust 8, 2012
Pros: money
Cons: long drive to work
Average day was long and very cold. Learned to keep warm. Managment hard for them to manage so many. Enjoyed my co-workers. Hardest part long drive to and from work. Best part was the money.

Trainers are inexperienced, tend to do things to intentionaly put you in a bind.
