Listen people long driving hours, and mixing dock work = accidents, you have no rest working 70 hrs a week, it’s too much and it will catch up with you maybe not right away, but we had over 10 jack knifes at our terminal, that’s from a Allentown manager?

Urgent Care is cheaper than the copays, bottom of the barrel insurance... if they would change to a competitive health network, they would be amazed at the retention of quality drivers.

Just had initial starting raise at $25/hr with a yearly $1 raise a year following first year to cap out at $28/hr after your third year. You can easily make $300 plus a night with route raises and cross-dock at terminals. Some sign on bonuses are $5k and vary from state with some being as high as $10k. Referals are as much as $3k to $5k. Your will to work and just do your job is as easy as anywhere as things are changing here, just the patience to wait and do so and watch the processes develop. Just a bunch of prissy, picky grown adults who thinks these companies revolve around them is what gives this company a bad name. There are other bad ones out there even worse. Updates are happening, just be here when they do. Freight practices are changing and getting better.

The company will pay you great money but it comes at a price:
1. Bad Equipment
2. They hardly do PM on the trucks
3. If you do pre / post trips and it fails they will tell you welll ok if you don’t take it you don’t get paid.
4. When your truck breaks down and it will, no matter where you are the mechanics come from Allentown and you will be stuck in your truck for hours
5. Management does have your back
