Every department is designed and managed to take advantage of the drivers. Recruiters get a commission based on new hires, resulting in misleading statements about virtually everything drivers have a concern with. They quote insurance price at $250.00 per month, but fail to mention the $4000.00 deductible, with 2-3 times that amount for a family. The 6 day work weeks go on forever, even after 15 years. Impossible to get a day off, so forget about your family life and marriage The H.R department has no concern for the workers, and are only in place to protect the management. They record phone conversations so I advise to use E-Mail only when corresponding with anyone. There are no sick days, no retirement match, no future. The shops are on a tight budget, so maintenance is minimal, with most terminals without any shop or mobile mechanics. Drivers don't get paid by hour, but on a predetermined time set by someone driving an automobile, not a tractor-trailer. No allowances for weather, construction, accidents, or other delays. Don't forget the forward and rear facing dash cameras with audio, which they monitor without your knowledge, CREEPY. Not much of a highly sought after position in my opinion.
None today, None tomorrow.
More than you can even imagine.
