Only good accounts is the Simmons mattress account, extreme physical labor 8-10 stops a day stores open at 6am-4pm close. Dispatch expects you to make all those stops while logging more than 100 miles in between routes with traffic & customers. Payroll problems is more common than anything no room for advancement, cheap clinics who will not release your physical to you without cardinal authorization. They hire and keep drivers who hit parked cars turnover rate is higher than usual

Management at cardinal in Dubuque is awful. You truly are just viewed as a number- not a person. Sure , you CAN make decent money BUT, you will be in a moving truck for 130-140hrs a week, bouncing through some of the worst stretches of roads the country has to offer. Overpriced benefits package is your reward for sacrificing your time at home, personal relationships and overall sanity. Sounds good to you ? I guess it’s perfect for some , my time here will be brief. Very brief.

Making sure the drivers arrived for their loads to numerous dairies a day. Rearranging the schedule on a regular basis in order to get to the dairies on time. I enjoyed my job very much and was very disappointed when Cardinal shut the Call Center down, we had a good work family who all worked together as a team
Corperate office not supportive at this Call Center

Run Arizona three times a week. I enjoy running to Arizona because there is less traffic than local driving. Cardinal is a great place to work and I would only leave for a better paying job with better benefits,
Operations Coordinator (Former Employee) – Front Royal, VA – December 21, 2018
I enjoyed working for Cardinal. Communicating with our customers and contractors was always pleasant even if there was an issue we were able to work as a team and resolve the problem. Management was diverse and safety was at the top of our list. The hardest part of the job was not always being able to accommodate the contractors on their loads however they would make due and still deliver where they were assigned to go. The most enjoyable part of the job was that it was always a friendly environment making it easier for everyone to be able to get our jobs done.

Delivery Driver (Current Employee) – Connecticut – December 16, 2018
Cardinal upper Management are great and very good. Cardinal has great equipment, great program and excellent training. The change command at the local office are not consistent on jobs planning. After working over a year I still don't have a set work schedule and will not meet the salary I was told. If I was giving a route the day before it could be change in no time or can find extra stops without notice. I never work a full week as I was told 100 % guarantee or a dedicated route as I was told 100% guarantee. If I am giving a day off during the week I don't know when my day off will be. If these things are fix I can considerate staying until my retirement. I love the job, love the costumer.

All trucking jobs salary is dependent on the type of runs you are doing like otr, regional or local. Indeed needs to make a categorie for this so people know what type of runs are paying. The salary with cardinal that I was making was for regional work which was good. Now I work local runs with cardinal is not so good. Presently looking for work.

Equipment is pretty new. Co-workers are nice and helpful. Management will work with you on time off and with any doctor's appointments. Management will also work with you on what you can and can't do on your route.
