Very good pay if you opt out of benefits
Company Driver (Former Employee) – Rapid City, SD – November 4, 2018
The work enviromemt varies depending on what state and what runs you do, as well as the pay. This run pays well at $23.98/hr. You also get $5.03/hr for H&W pay. Vacation is 1 week first year, 2 weeks 2nd-4th years, 3 weeks 5+. If you are looking for overtime this company does not pay it. If you are looking at working 60+ hours a week then you will want to be a team driver. There is no per deim or compensation for that. If you have to shut down due to weather, you will not get any compensation for the first 10 hours. Now they do have great benefits, but at a steep price. If you go with the company benefits, you do not get your health and wellness pay, and depending on your plan and who will be on it, you can look at up to $200 per week deducted from your paycheck. If you wave your benefits, 50% of your H&W pay goes into your pay (capped at 40 hours a week) and the other half goes into your 401k. You can still get the voluntary life insurance, disability, etc though. Management, you mainly hear from them if you’ve done something wrong, which is usually all the time. All the trucks have cameras. Biggest thing is communication. Except for the guys you work with that live in the same city, or the relay drivers you meet with, there is hardly communication. Trucks are a couple years old.
Pay, trucks, co-workers
