No Miles

They start out giving you miles and then you get to stay home for two weeks and only get 1800 miles when you do go back out. Would not recommend for veteran drivers. They hire rookies and you get stuck fixing flat tires on trailers. I have over a million and a half miles under me so I do know what I am talking about! If you are a new driver they will love you! Go for it!

Pros

Home-time

Cons

No miles

A great starting company.

I got my CDL a week in half before I appiled here. My company took a long time to take me as their driver but KKW picked me up in less than 2 days. So KKW is a great company to work for and I feel they pay decent and they give decent hours. I wish there was KKW where I now live but I have nothing but good to say about KKW

Pros

Pay is decent for local, benefits, ESOP? Clean Trucks

Cons

Pay could be a little more for my liking.

Putting you're CDL at risk working here.

Not much to say. Standard trucking gig, problem arises when management consistently tries to get you to violate weight restrictions to deliver stuff, and also does nothing to fix the constant light issues on their trucks.

Not any better than the bigger companies

Not as much freight as the larger companies and too much downtime in between loads . Driver managers don’t seem to care if you’re making money or not. They push the employee owned angle but really no different.

Pros

Trucks are OK

Cons

Bad planning, not so good night and weekend support. Inconsistent pay.

5 stars

What is the best part of working at the company?I get home time whenever I request it.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?It truly is a very low stress company to work for. My stress comes from all the bad drivers on the road, who really don't know how to drive their vehicle around the presence of a Semi Rig.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Very friendly, and very helpful. What is a typical day like for you at the company?Miles and miles of driving, eating, and then sleeping.

Meh

Experience grind company, good equipment but very low $. Do your 6mo and get out. Require no experience which is good. Dispatcher treats you like a number nothing more.

Full time work for part time pay

I was out of this company in under 3 months. If you have no life and want lots of time sitting in your truck instead of driving this is the company for you. If you only want to drive 300 miles a day. You will love KKW. If you want to drive 11 hours a day, run 700 miles a day. Make good money while away from home. Look elsewhere. No way your getting any of that at KKW. They do have nice trucks. But no idle and no inverters. Probably the worse company I have ever worked for in my life.

Pros

Pretty trucks

Cons

No miles = no money.

Productivity

Low mileage. They give you less than 2k miles a week. My average payroll is not enough to provide my family, and if was not my wife I was in a really bad situation…

Good place to get experience

Treated well, but no miles, lot of favoritism between dispatcher and family and friends , notify dispatch when load has been delivered and wait for the next load sometimes right away other times wait for over 24 hours until next load is found, spend more time waiting empty than driving loaded

It’s a job

They don’t keep their promises or uphold other promises. Their pay raises for drivers is a joke. 1/2 cent for 55k miles when I was told .01 every 50k. Starting pay .51 every mile. You’re lucky if you make 2,000 miles a week. Maintenance doesn’t know what they’re doing, same problems are popping up on my truck and not being fixed.

Steer away

Low miles, low pay, but nice trucks and treated well. I wouldn’t recommend to someone. Do not get on the Georgia pacific account the miles are not there

Productive, coworkers are willing to help you out

My terminal specifically kept us busy but not so much we are overworked, the manager at my terminal was probably the best I will ever have, if you work with him - he will work with you. Integrity and safety are the number one things here at this company. I would say that communication, all around, could improve, as well as, actually implenting solutions so everyone is happy and secure. There also should be an actual training program. The benefits are not half bad but it's expensive. Beware, this is very customer based, so you could have a short day or a long work day.
