Long-haul flatbed carrier with six terminals in the Mid-South and Ohio
truck driver (Current Employee) – Tulsa, OK – July 17, 2012
The average driver stays on the road for 3-6 weeks running the lower 48 states. Trucks have a governor of 65 miles-per-hour. Company drivers are forced dispatched from 7a.m. to 4p.m., usually after emptying out. The fleet drivers there are typically of a higher quality workplace ethic. Experienced drivers try to share knowledge with newcomers. One of the most difficult parts of the job is tarping freight outdoors during extreme weather conditions. They hire drivers with 6+ months experience from all over the country but hubs are concentrated in Tx, Alabama, Oklahoma, OH.
