A typical day is day or night. The job is mostly drop/hook. Some companies allow for early pick up and delivery, whether drop or live. Live is better, since there is normally time for rest. Management uses
quite a bit out-of-the-box thinking, using creative ways for getting
loads relayed or managing one-trip loads.
Have met a few coworkers during trips to the terminal, or even encounters at truck stops. There are mixed reviews from other drivers, but most are easy to talk to.
The hardest part of the job is switching from day to night driving, due to the ever-changing load times, so it makes getting ample time to rest challenging at times.
I do like seeing different parts of the country, although there are some states I've come to enjoy more than others, because of scenery, among other attributes.
Driver managers are easy to talk to, and accessible at the terminal.
