Competitive compensation and good benefits may seem to make the work worthwhile, however the long hours, constant nitpicking on efficiencies, and lack of external support makes managers and drivers feel like they are on their own and micromanaged. If it's not trucks breaking down constantly, managing an aging fleet, dealing with customer issues, dealing with driver issues, managing driver routes, coaching driver performances, or just trying to get every customer serviced that day; it's constantly having to answer to even the slightest drop in efficiency, even when accounting for all of the above. Expect to spend at least 13-15 hours per day, 5 days a week trying to manager your yard and your drivers, leaving you with little time or energy to do anything after work.
Good compensation and benefits
Long hours, little support if yard doesn't make high profits
