The only way to make good money with this company is OTR. They say you can still make good money locally but it's just not worth it. By the time you get your check it's deducted so much with the crazy insurance that you can just get a regular job in town where you don't have to be on the road in the truck all day.
Gas and Chemical Driver (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – June 10, 2017
A typical work day consist of completing all work related task in a timely manner. I learned that a good and professional relationship with management makes communication regarding my work responsibilities and duties the most enjoyable part of my job. This allows me to work with more confidence, knowing that am performing my job duties and responsibilities at my best. Adopting to work place culture solely depends on if the culture is positive and benefits the company and its employees. The hardest part of my job is, not having any work to do. This makes my day feels longer.
Analyst (Former Employee) – Enid, OK – April 21, 2017
Family owned company. Very weak management in place. Very few degreed management personnel. Formal education is not encouraged. Management is usually a promoted truck driver. HQ'ed in small town to keep wages artificially low. Lots of turnover in driver force.
Need to be buddies with the right management staff to move forward.
Great people in the office who understand the value of life away from work.

Dispatch at Denver office needs some work to make days more productive for drivers. They need to work on sharing customers between drivers. Some drivers make more money because certain customers are more consistent and those routes are closer. The office does understand about life away from work. The people in the Henderson office are really great and there is no forced dispatch. Also the drivers who have hazmat who are willing to drive in the mountains don't make as much money as the ones who stayed local. Loading can take many hours. 65 mph speed governor on trucks. Too much safety equipment for experienced drivers in trucks.
It was a decent place to work. Problem is you were not paid overtime and expected to work as many hours as needed which usually consisted of an 80 hour week, always on call with no compensation and to move up you had to kiss much of the bosses rearend.
