Over The Road Driver (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – May 25, 2017
Alone driving the most amount of distance your allowed to drive a day and make your deliveries on time. hardest part about the job is being away from family and running into uncontrolable circumstances.
Learned How to be Safer on the road Driving Bigger Trucks. Using a Qualcom. How to Hook and unhook Trailers. The Hardest Part would probably be just Being aware of all your surroundings and trying to anticipate the other drivers on the road. One of the Enjoyable things about it is you get to Travel all over see different country sides and scenery.
A good stepping stone into the transportation world
Carrier Sales Support Rep (Former Employee) – Green Bay, WI – May 23, 2017
I was satisfied with my typical work day. I had plenty to keep me busy. I learned a lot about the basics of transportation and working with both customers, drivers and other carriers. My favorite part of my job was the culture. Learning was very much encouraged and the atmosphere was encouraging and enthusiastic. The most difficult part of my job was dealing with policy change. I loved finding solutions for customers and 3PL carriers.
Insurance was not great. Compensation could have been much better.

They keep you away from home cause they never want you going home. They force their drivers to undergo medical procedures that they do not want just to look as though they are 1st in safety, but forcing drivers to use machines that they don't need causes more harm than good. They also refuse to except any doctors documentation or diagnoses except what comes from their own corrupt doctors.
Regional Driver (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – May 16, 2017
Only reason why i left was because i was not getting enough miles. Other than that great great company! Was happy as a clam. I was a western 7 driver ran when i had miles and loads. But just not enough of them. Wish they had better health insurance. Pays well and trucks are ok too slow tho need to be governed at 65 not 61.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Green Bay, WI – May 16, 2017
Although challenging and stressful at times, it allows you to grow as an employee within and every experience that you take on is considered as you move up. A lot of internal advancement so that you can find your right place.
Truck Driver (OTR) (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – May 14, 2017
not good worked there for over a year. the place has no respect for home time pay or miles they love to keep you in places you do not like to be. I am a south regional guy and they keep me in the north east.
Driver (Former Employee) – Gordonsville, VA – May 13, 2017
i had a very pleasant experience driving for them. the training for new drivers is a bit hard, but it is well worth it.they have plenty of different positions and locations to work from and should be able to accommodate most home time requests.
It was very good company to work.Blessed me with a Dedicated Route.Never had to drive outside the state of Tx.They have a serious problem with management.There DBL's for what ever reason had a serious attitude problem.At least the ones i worked under.The most enjoyable part of the job was the time along in the truck over the road each day.
Good place to start if new to driving a commercial truck
Truck Driver Class A (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – May 8, 2017
This is a very different lifestyle to get used to but can be rewarding if it's what you really want to do for a living. Long work days and being away from home and family the hardest part. Alot of tasks completed on a daily basis you won't get paid for as you only make money for the miles driven.
Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Green Bay, WI – May 5, 2017
This company has been chopped up into to many sub groups and no one has the authority to fix anything. All information must flow both ways up and down the chain, but they can't even get simple requests right. Very poor run management group!
Management for teams was well thought out in their processes
Team Driver (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – May 4, 2017
I felt they did a great job at keeping the team drivers rolling, not too much downtime. Relaxed and friendly workplace culture Hardest part of job was the crank handles on the trailers. Management was fair and consistent.
