Great company to drive for
Driver (female) (Former Employee) – Medina, OH – June 25, 2016
I drove for this company for a couple of years and left only as it was imperative at that time to come home and take care of my Elderly parents. Panther and my fleet owner were very supportive as it was somewhat of an emergency situation and I was not able to give more than 24 hours notice.
Now...the 2 main key factors are (1) having a great fleet owner and (2) having a great co-driver. Great as in not lazy and a safe driver.
Dispatch was great to us. If you are under a load, they will stay in contact. If you are not, and are persistent, you will get a load. They are not forced dispatched but we rarely turned down loads. If you are a team that works hard and drives hard and not only arrives for pick up and delivery on time but EARLY, you WILL get loads. However, there are some slow periods in freight, but that's the industry.
I don't know what's up with the driver who said his biggest check was 450.00. We averaged 900.00 to 1100.00 weekly....EACH!
When I am able to go back on the road, I will only drive for Panther.
You will get what you give. Know your stuff!
