Estes is a decent LTL company. Better than most.
LTL Driver (Current Employee) – Columbia, MO – October 7, 2018
Working nights beginning at approx. 8 pm through to 10 to 11am.
How to manage time and resources quite well.
Self started is a must!
Great employees overall.
Competitive atmosphere at times.
The hardest part of the job is being gone a full week from home.
The most enjoyable part is knowing you are doing a job some would not, or could not do.
All LTL companies are Federally regulated. Regulations must be followed. Any mistake or lack of following through can result in fines and CSA points on your license, or worse. Much worse. An accident, regardless of fault, can result in property damage, loss of life and the list goes on.
Making sure your equipment is safe and secure for transport has to be your first priority.
A great deal is expected of any Transport Driver. As it should be. The trick, I believe, is to remind yourself of the responsibility accompanying the occupation. Every day. Every hour. Every second if need be.
Fair compensation. Flexible
Very little home time
