Great pay, awesome benefits. Zero accountability.
Linehaul Road Driver (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – October 18, 2017
In KC all new drivers start on sleeper teams and it takes about 10 years to get enough seniority for anything else. I made 76k my first year there with no prior experience as a driver. The benefits are all 100% paid and about the best anyone can offer. Expect to be on the road with a partner about 5 days per week. Weekends are hard to get off so don't expect that. It's a union job so all the drivers do is hold the steering wheel, literally. You pull into a terminal, set the brakes then wait for someone else to drop and hook your next set.
Find a driving partner you're cool with and you should be fine. Better off if your wife irritates the heck out of you, now you can get away and only have to see her a day or two per week.
Also, since it's a union company you'll need to get use to hearing, "It's not my job....." Everyone has their job and work and take their sweet time to do it and will not do anything not outlined in their job description.
Pay, benefits, light work load
Little home time, no accountability.
