Over-the-road Semi Truck Driver (Former Employee), Green Bay, WI – February 16, 2014
Pros: you get to drive all over the united states, sleep in the truck without air conditioning, you work about 14 hours per day driving, and that includes weekends and holidays.
Cons: they do not pay you what you are supposed to get, you do not have days off like you were promised, they do not pay $100 per day for your downtime, they do not pay for your motel and meals for downtime, they do not even fix their truck, they do not pay for the bus, plane or rental car to get home after you quit and they are supposed to pay to get you home.
the training pay was good. after I was done training, I was getting less then minimum wage. they lied when they said that I would have a few days off every 2 weeks. my driver-leader ranted for a couple of hours every morning when I called to check in with him. I do not get paid to listen to him rant. My driver-leader refused to ok the truck repairs – more... after the truck had been red-flagged. they did not pay me for downtime which should be $100 per day plus motel and meal expenses. I quit after 2 weeks of not getting paid. I paid for a greyhound bus ticket from Nevada to Wisconsin. – less

[DEDICATED FAMILY$ STORE DELIVERY (Former Employee), duncan, ok – February 4, 2014
Pros: great driving experince
Cons: no home time, bad relations with storefronts, no coop from store managers.
Family Dollar Dedicated. The recruiters sweet talk you and make you false promises. Was told I'd have adequate home time and it turned into 34hrs at home then back on the road. Had to hand unload in Houston heat in august with no ac cause the company only allows a fan and extension cord. Many drivers pass out from heat exhaustion. Hand unloading freight – more... is very physical. – less
