A great place to work.
OTR Transportation Driver-Peterbilt (Former Employee), Morton Il.April 18, 2014
A typical day work consist of droping and hooking trailers from one location to the next. I've learned how to operate a tractor trailer through out the city street vs driving on highways. Co-workers @ my job we work as a team in order to get the jobs done in a timely matter. The hardest part of the job is the constant cranking of dolly legs. The most – more... enjoyable part of this job is the team setiing. – less

Excellent equipment, miles
OTR Truck Driver (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INJuly 8, 2013
Pros: excellent equipment, miles, pay, benefits.
Cons: bad management, low esteem for the company for a few years.
Company was truly excellent when I started in 1996-98. Had a great dispatcher, good equipment, great miles. Good benefits. Good home time. All that fell off for a while when the new owner took over, like he didn't really care about the drivers or their lives outside the company. Seems to have changed back some lately.

not a driver friendly company
Truck Driver (Former Employee), Morton, ILApril 8, 2013
Cons: everything, stay away, run as fast as you can.
if you like to sit and wait in a truck that you cant idle to stay warm or cool, then this may be the company for you. there idle policy is horrible. idle time must be under 30% which would not be too bad if you ran a lot. but when sitting in Laredo for 48 hours trying to stay cool , or sitting in Illinois during a winter storm due to the interstate – more... being shut down. you will pass 30% fast. then they will dock you .06 on the mile for 90 days. don't rev the truck over 1400 rpm or you will get docked as well. trucks are junk and falling apart. the truck gets fixed only if it is a major problem. the guys in the shop do their best but management keeps them from doing what really needs to be done.
be ready to get inspected at most every weigh station. there fmcsa scores are horrible. – less

Truck Driver (Current Employee), Morton, ILNovember 10, 2012
everyday is a typical day at work. I have learned to be a good, safe driver.Management is okay, but would like to work locally. I get along with my co-workers, but I rarely see anyone. When I am away from home for a long period of time. I enjoyed traveling the world, but need time to spend with family now.
