for drivers, great place to work
Line Haul Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Crest Hill, IL – August 21, 2018
Company had great equipment, on site repair facility that hustled when you had any issues and nice management.
I drove as a line haul driver at the Crest Hill, Illinois facility. I would come in and wait for my load to process and then take off. My run was to Grand Rapids, MI and then back. Most of the time I would get an additional stop on the way back to Rockford, Milwaukee or South Bend. Overall it wasn't bad at all, EXCEPT when you were tired from driving all night and upon return to the home terminal you were told you have to do one more run to the Des Plaines terminal at the peak of the morning rush hour.
The pay was great, the equipment was all new and well maintained, management was really fair and nice as were your co-workers. My problem was that I couldn't handle the overnight shift and was having a lot of trouble staying awake between 2-4 AM. When i had my second brush with dozing at the wheel, I knew i was done. The fast paced day shift is something I couldn't handle so I resigned.
I would work here again in a heart beat if they had a day time /afternoon line haul type position
