Pros: home time, pay, benefits, new trucks!
Cons: hard work
I work in the chain division so I work 4 nights a week. It takes a little bit to get used to but, I love it. I start my week Sunday night going in getting my paper work, hooking up my tractor to the trailer and heading out to the route. I have two, two day routes, Sunday-Tuesday morning, and Wednesday-Friday. I'm off Friday, Saturday, And Tuesday night. It's a lot of home time. The pay is top notch, I've brought home as much as $1400.00 in one week, but average is about $950.00 a week for me. We have company match 401k, insurance is the best you'll find. It's only $27.00 a week for me and my daughter. We also now have profit sharing. But with all that being said it is very physically demanding. This is the hardest job I've ever done in my life, I've lost 25lbs since I've been here for 6 months. But I love the company I didn't know companies like this still exist, from the management to warehouse it's all the best I've seen. I've seen 6 drivers be promoted to managers so they promote from within. I will retire from here.
