Same thing different company
Slave driver (Current Employee) – West Memphis, AR – September 4, 2017
Average pay, load appt times are mostly made up. ( I ask at final delivery.) My assignments are almost always impossible to deliver on there made up appt time. The pre assignments are usually way before I deliver the load I am on. So, you don't have a rest break in between loads. Load planners ignore or don't look at your hours or next available time. ( very bad issue!) They are very greedy with home time. You can stay out 6 weeks and only get 4 days off. Also, every time you get within a couple days of your home time you get a load that puts you 500-1000 miles from home the day before to make sure you don't get extra time off. The last three times I came back from home time I waited until noon for a load. The trucks are very basic high mileage cascadias no Apu or power inverter. Fuel mileage is a factor for your quarterly bonus so forget that in the summer because of no apu. Well my only pro is my driver manager if he is available (usually not) the rest of them are ok or burnt out hate my job guys or blame you for the problem and not listen to a word you say hurry up and get to the next phone call. As usual the driver managers are always overwhelmed because they have to much workload. I gave them a chance but been a year of sameshit different day. Oh well they are all the same for the most part. We done let all these companies take over the industry. Now trucking is just another job where the man makes it all.
