Fun work place
Commercial Driver (Current Employee) –  Rockford, ILFebruary 2, 2017
It all starts off if you can get a run or if they have free in the first place to try to work they help me improve on driving better Commercial Driving wise I'm able to do log books now just the downfall is they don't give raises you don't make the money you would expect to be driver wishing they would have more runs available the people working there are awesome and when we do things sometimes it's fun they try to help people when they're in need at times
Pros
flexible
Cons
need more hours and more pay

Look foranother carear.
CDL Driver Straight Truck (Former Employee) –  Neenah, WINovember 17, 2014
Do it their way or your out the door, don't care what employees have to say. They have favorite drivers that get regular hours, the rest get just enough to keep them off the unemployment line and not enough for vacation and holiday pay. I was there eight years, was fun the first couple years, then the all mitie DOLLAR went to their heads. No pay increase, lots of pay cuts. Driving trucks pushing 1,000,000 miles, with LOTS of break downs on the road, and you don't get paid for sitting with a break down. No that a boy for getting JOB done well, just get load delivered,and get back. I could go on and on, if your retired, great supplemental income, because if your supporting a family, move on.
Pros
On call, drive when you want.
Cons
Your just a number, pay cuts no pay increases, no respect.

Fun, enjoyable, able to see other states
On-Call Driver (Former Employee) –  Neenah, WIJuly 13, 2014
It was nice to be able to travel and see other states I wouldn't have seen otherwise, was fun driving to other states even if only for a short period. I learned how to use a GPS and how to keep a daily log book. The hardest part of the job was probably how crazy the traffic could be at times and the times when the vehicle broke down.

Not for the feint of heart. Better for supplemental income, instead of as your main job. Management is willing to be flexible. And no forced dispatch.
Pros
Lots of driving. Flexible schedule.
Cons
Inconsistant hours for covering cost of living
