I was treated fairly at elite as a hard working driver until various issues with ownership about seniority and compensation came to forefront then retribution was done and had to be settled with legal action
Elite Express is the best trucking company I have ever worked for. All they ask is that you stay in communication with them, and they will never be on your case. Plan your trips, use your 14 hours wisely, and you will be very happy here. I haven’t seen any other companies put their money where their mouth is by guaranteeing $65k in writing! It’s a place where you can actually talk to the owners. You’re a name not a number like at so many mega companies. You’ll get the miles at Elite Express, and make very good money.
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.
Check is decent
Can’t nurture any kind of relationship because you’ll never be home long enough to.

I love working fir this company they were very good to me I ran real good with this company and they took pretty good care of their equipment and were good at keeping drivers. The cons were they played favorites and weren't the open minded company they said they were .

A great place to work, and wonderful people to work for. If I ever felt insecure about an area, I always received the help I needed to over come my insecurity. I answered phones, input order and invoiced. management was wonderful my coworker was great
