Poor wages. Family oriented.
Truck Driver (Former Employee), Seagoville, TXMay 24, 2015
Pros: Didn't lie as much as some.
Cons: Low pay for Texas regional.
Good folks overall. Had to be home daily or if probably still be there. Ran Texas regional. Like my managers there. Had a jerk for a terminal manager but they got rid of him. Place seems to police itself pretty well. Bad folks don't last long.

It is a trap
Logistics Coordinator/Fleet Manager (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLMay 11, 2015
Pros: Great experience, challenging work environment, good customer base
Cons: Long hours, poor management, under appreciation
This place will start off great, and the possible benefits can sound amazing. They actually do pay for you child's college, provided you can work there long enough. Most people cannot make it to this point. I know of 3 people a the Jacksonville office that have been there longer than 5 years. The rest of the employees make it on average 1-3 years. You will have no life outside of work, They take a good salary and work you to death for it. There is an illusion of advancement, in all reality it is a carrot they dangle in front of employees just so they work hard enough to line the pockets of Management, which have a nice healthy bonus plan.

They LIE
Truck Driver (Former Employee), North Liberty, IAApril 8, 2015
They tell you that you will average 2500 miles a week but in reallity you will only get about 1800 a week unless you kiss there butts.

in 13 months of working for them I have an average mileage of 1800 miles, and that was staying out 3 to 5 weeks at a time then coming home for less then 2 days at a time.

A very interesting experience
Long Haul Truck Driver (Former Employee), North Liberty, IAMarch 10, 2015
Pros: i got to learned how to driver over the road, see many road and states
Cons: i didn't have much of a life but all my day was spent driving.
Long haul driving is an experience of total driving commitment. I like driving all over the roads, I've enjoyed driving over the mountain top, driving throughout new cities, learning new roads, and having the control of driving a truck through all kinds of weather.

Great Company
Company Driver (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZAugust 9, 2014
Great company. Great staff, but not enough pay. Got you home when you needed and on time. Distance to destination of pick up was closer in distance than most companies which made for easier work days.
