No life at this Job.
Driver (Former Employee) –  Hebron, OHFebruary 24, 2019
1st. $22.50 an hr is after 50 hrs. Its milage pay before that and at over 50 hrs you get what pays better milage or $22.50 an hr. 47 cent a mile on runs over 250 miles and 87 cents a mile for 100 mile but you'll have to do two runs to make money.

2nd. When you get 10 hrs off you have to call dispatch to find out when you're load will be ready. You will find it difficult to have a life because you do not have a Schedule. You work when they need you. Every day is a different start time. May be 6 PM, 10 PM. 4 AM.. no where consistant.

3rd. The dairy does not load the trailers tight and sometimes the milk is barley on the skid. You will break pallets of milk down and yes its heavy and a pain in the Butt. You will also find some older stores are difficult to get into the docks.

4th. The trucks are New and they do not in force the No smoking policy.

Lastly, If you want a life this is not the job for you. And if you research they are always hiring because they can not Keep drivers. I worked there 2 weeks and it Honestly was the worst driving job I have had. They lie about the $22.50. Not a Company you can trust. Find a job other than Here.
Pros
New trucks
Cons
Its a Rat race Job. They lie about there pay.

This is a job, not a career.
Truck Driver Class A (Current Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXAugust 28, 2018
Dispatchers determine who makes what.
A few drivers make decent money. The rest of us get the low paying busy work. It’s all easy once you get the hang of it. But the pay isn’t worth my time. High turnover rate here.
Pros
You’re never rushed. Management is relaxed
Cons
Mandatory 6 day work week, low pay

Great place to work. Needs improvement on routing and selection for drivers
Class A Driver (Former Employee) –  Murfreesboro, TNMarch 15, 2018
Great place to work. Needs improvement on routing and selection for drivers. Too much emphasis was placed on drivers that didn't want to work hard just to keep them employed. Drivers that worked hard all the time are subject to the worst routes and least time home.

It's a job and it pays bills.
Somebody (Former Employee) –  OhioMarch 3, 2018
Okay job overall at the Newark terminal but third shift dispatcher is a person who always find something to nitpick and f with you about if he doesn't like you and it is more than very annoying. Other than that just do your job and make sure you log correctly and you should be okay. The big minus about this job in my opinion are some of the Kroger employees you have to deal with. I'm not lying, some of them you really have to use your restraint because they will make snide comments to you and make you want to lose your job and catch an assault charge on top of it. Another minus is the slip seating but doesn't really make sense to let drivers keep the tractor with what we do. I would like to see better equipment and a Qualcomm instead of a PeopleNet. If you are lazy then this place is not for you. It's an easy job to deal with the milk once you get the hang of it but if you are a lazy, you will not last the first week. That's a promise...
Pros
It pays the bills, will let you owner operate, at home 99% of the time. Decent insurance rates.
Cons
slip seating, subpar Eld, Volvo's and Mack, other drivers who are lifers seem to be aholes to the new guy. 3rd Shift dispatcher.

Not a easy place to work, management needs to support their team .
Driver (Former Employee) –  Shelbyville, INSeptember 1, 2017
This is not a easy place to work, first you have to drive from Cincinnati,OH to Shelbyville,IN (about 90 miles) in order to get a load of freight but then you have to wait several hours just to get a run because they are a union outfit and the veteran drivers get first pick of the runs, You could spend a whole afternoon sitting around for a load.
Pros
Nice co workers
Cons
good time wasted waiting for loads, management needs to support their team of drivers better.

Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INAugust 21, 2017
This is a grocery hauler, work is 24-7 365 days a year. Advancement and wage increases are slim to non existent. Insurance is average with industry. Wages are average with industry, but on low side for all weekend and Holiday work requirements.
Pros
flexable work week
