CDL Truck Driver (Former Employee) – McDonough, GA – December 31, 2017
In 2011 Bennett was a really good place to work, until they cut throat you. They started buying their own trucks and hiring drivers to drive their trucks and pull their trailers, leaving the owner-operators out to dry.

OTR Driver (Former Employee) – McDonough, GA – February 14, 2018
You are not forced to take any loads. You have to work at the least once per month to stay employed. I started off delivering RVs then I bought a couple of trucks and began hauling travel trailers. I enjoyed the freedom of the road.
Dispatcher (Current Employee) – McDonough, GA – January 30, 2018
Upper management is very unethical and corrupt! Bennett's "Christian" core values only apply to those who party, play golf, and goes on vacations with the owner and executives. They have a good public image but the company is truly run by people who possess some backwoods mentality. What do you expect? They are located in a heck town called McDonough, GA.
Very fast paced, we had to orientate drivers on legal issues.
Legal Secretary (Former Employee) – McDonough, GA – January 3, 2018
A very much a family company. Everyone in management had an open door policy. You could walk into any office and discuss anything with managers. We were treated very good! They would cater Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner to our cafeateria. As a whole the work environment was stressful at times, slow at others. There was always something to do. I helped out in different departments when I could. The hardest part was teaching new drivers all the legals they needed to run their trucks thru different states. I had to prepare a booklet on their legals based on where they would drive to, by state. I enjoyed working with my team members and managers, and the President. They were very open to new ideas to make all run smoother.
Good job security and benefits, liked my co-workers
Very stressful at times! But had the advantage to walk away for a few minutes.
Bennett is an amazing company to work with. Either CDL or NON CDL drivers positions with either Winnebago or Intrnational trucks. The attomosphre is professional and well worth the travel from NH to OH. A great experience for a temporary contract job.
Excellent training, excellent company
Distance of travel to and from drop off requires air flights and cabs

Administrative Intern (Former Employee) – Elkhart, IN – August 22, 2017
In this job I was and intern for a manager so I would print papers, put together packets, logged in orders for motor homes, and assisted drivers that would need my help. I learned to be very thorough with the paperwork I out together and learned better computer skills. This job helped me with knowing how an office setting was like and how to make sure my manager had everything they asked for. The hardest part for me was everydays task was usually the same and the best part was being able to better my computer skills.
Independent Contractor (Current Employee) – McDonough, GA – February 15, 2017
Freight is cheap. By the time they take their cut your left with no meat on the bone. I hate to leave. They have been a good company for a long time but I guess things change. Love the people but you can't pay the bills with kindness
The bennett employees are awesome
Freight rates and freight in general. Well lack of.
