Wish I would’ve made a different choice
OTR Driver (Current Employee) – Pennsauken, NJ – February 6, 2018
No guarantees for home time, even on holidays. If you have an issue it may get addressed, it may not. If the load or truck has an issue Johnny on the spot. 401k isn’t offered for a year and only matches 15%. Everyone in the system is stressed and over worked. Just now coming into the 21st century with technology and tracking applications. Some planned routes/time expectations are impossible to achieve. Certain issues you will find anywhere but some are not. The office is as relaxed as an over worked, stressful environment can be with varying personalities. New driver lounge with big screen, satellite, coffee and showers is nice. On yard trailer shop and truck shop is close but has a maniac working there. Pizza served every Friday afternoon if you’re lucky enough to be on the yard at the right time and there’s some left. I’d rather eat mine at home.
Can’t nurture any kind of relationship because you’ll never be home long enough to.
