It doesn't get much worse.
Driver (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – June 16, 2017
Pay; reality here, even if you are an experienced driver, pay is under $600 a week net after benefits. This is with an average of 10 hour days, 5 days a week.
Equipment; The trucks and trailers are complete junk. If I go 5 days without breaking down, I call that a good week. Trucks are old, beat up, and none of them should be on the road. There are times have to wait a week or more just to get a tire replaced, due to the fact the company shop goes past their budget, and doesn't have the money to make repairs or replace bad tires. When your truck is down, it is mandatory that you use any available truck on the yard. The problem I found with this, is most, if not all of the trucks are not mechanically sound.
Dispatch; dispatch is easy to deal with, and normally don't have a problem with them.
Management; management is non-existent here. If you need something done, or have a question dispatch can't help you with, you are completely out of luck and on your own. When you are able to see management, every answer to any question is, "I don't know." When it comes to loads, the new people get the worst they have to offer. They are on the buddy plan here, and their favorites get the decent loads, while you are averaging $10-$15 an hour.
Overall, this is by far, the worst trucking job I've ever had. Lowest pay, and the worst equipment.
Low pay, bad equipment
