CDL A Truck Driver (Former Employee), Pacific, WA – March 18, 2014
Pros: put onto a dedicated account after 1 month of starting work
Cons: terrible health insurance, expensive, few places took it.
Typical OTR company. Nothing more significant then any others I worked for. Seemed to be a lot of in house problems with management related to the owners of the company not promoting from within except friends or family members.

driver (Former Employee), Lathrop, Ca – November 22, 2013
Pros: home on weekends, lots of yards.
Cons: dispatchers have no idea what they are doing.
I worked for gordon .It was a joke. My dispatcher was a nightmare, along with 80 percent of the people I dealt with. The one thing I can say is i got home weekends.They would suck my hours dry looking for trailers that were not at the places they told me. The worst thing they could tell you is,"Find an empty." They had no idea where one was. They sent – more... me a couple times for loads that were already picked up and it would take a minimum of 2 3 hours before they got it figured out. To be fair i dont think there was enough dispatchers, but that cost drivers miles. Most of the people that work at Gordon have no idea about trucking. Don't go with them if you have options. – less
OTR team driver (Current Employee), Indianapolis, IN – August 13, 2013
Pros: good miles, good equipment
Cons: sometimes long wait for repairs and services
This is a great company for teams...real teams, not super-solo teams. We have a preplan 99% of the time, they let us drop loads at our yards if they have too much time on them instead of having us sit, and we get home on time for time off. To the person that said he/she felt sorry for someone who thought this was a good company...you just keep on feeling – more... sorry for me and my $1,000+ take home pay...yes, company teams that want to run really make that much...and we are in a 2014 truck...but if you have that kind of attitude we really don't want you at this company, it will bring down our image and CSA rating! – less
Driver (Former Employee), Medford – August 1, 2013
Pros: great time-off schedule
Cons: l.a. traffic
Picked up transfer load at the yard and took it down to L.A. Dropped that load and picked up another in the drop lot to go to Seattle. I really learned how to manage time verses distance doing this because it was all a timed run. My co-driver was a friend of mine the that part was easy. Traffic was a bummer if we were unable to get out of L.A. by 4am. – more... Getting 2-3 days off a week was great. – less
Good Solid company always working always communicating
Over the Road Truck Driver (Former Employee), Pacific Washington – July 21, 2013
Pros: great miles plenty of home time
Cons: my time with them was cut short due to an unfortunate accident, that resulted in a citation that was against company safety guidelines
A typical day at work was always good my driver router was always available for updates and statuses to current deliveries and future deliveries. I always took the time to plan routes and leave in plenty of time to ensure on time delivery and prompt customer service was a top goal and safety of our equipment and others on the road.

Pros: self motivation a must, great employees at this treminal
Cons: over loaded at times, not too bad
very busy, time managment is key, managment is great at the shop,awesome co workers, hardest part is needing to find a higher rate of pay job, challenges each day to find solutions is the most enjoyable.

Truck Driver (Former Employee), Pacific, WA – December 16, 2012
Pros: home time when requested
Good company, great to work for. They were very respectful of their employees and they are able to give you time off when requested as much as they can. There was always work for us to deliver. Customer service representatives that dispatched us were very thoughtful and well knowledgeable.
