Gypsum was a hard place to work rather than spread work around to all driver's they played favorites and the only way you got work was to load trailers

Great place to work
Driver (Former Employee) –  DeMotte, INNovember 28, 2014
Check over truck and make sure operational. Get delivery location and unload. Get new assignment was a typical day. I learned operation of qualcomm system. The management and my co-workers were great. Dispatchers always tried to keep me moving. Having to wait for load was hardest part of my job. Driving across country was the most enjoyable part of job got to see a lot of country.
Pros
Seeing a lot of the country
Cons
Unable to maintain budget with pay

Driver (Current Employee) –  Savannah, GASeptember 12, 2014
I load and secure goods on a flatbed trailer and transport them from shipper to the customer. I is a very good place to work where you are treated like family. I feel the hardest part of the job is having to tarp the load after the shipper tarps the load improperly.

Flatbed driver OTR (Current Employee) –  Savannah, GAMarch 11, 2014
Pays well. Really good management. You will drive in hazardous conditions but you are very well trained. You train for about 2-3 weeks depending on how you feel. They are a good rounded company and are very easy to work with.
