Support from management

While I was with a trainer (who was fantastic I want to add) management's concern was keeping those wheels turning. Every day pushing me right up to 14 hours. I was exhausted. They did not care about me, my health, or my mental well-being.

Career Development

I really wasn't there to get a sense for possible career development. I was hired as a truck driver. Don't think there is much room for growth.

Overall compensation for your work

When you are with a trainer you are expected to stay out on the road for 6 weeks. You have to have the finances to buy your food and anything else you may need while you are over-the-road. Thank God I did, but, I felt for those who didn't. It's expensive!!!!

Work-Life Balance

I was hired as a "Regional" driver. I did NOT want over-the-road. I was told they had the perfect route for me. Minneapolis to Chicago.Home every other night. Never saw that. I did however see New York, Texas, Tennessee. They lied to get me hired, then changed.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Be upfront and honest. When you send people to orientation in Indiana from all over the country TELL them they will be getting in a truck for 6 weeks of training. Be honest about what type of routes are available. Just be honest. I was lied to too many times.

What I like about the company

I liked my trainer. He was a really good guy. Laid back and professional. Very helpful. I liked my assigned truck. Pretty nice equipment.

What I dislike about the company

They lie to get you in. Reminds me of military recruiters who lie to get you signed up. Then you have to find out the truth the hard way. Totally NOT fair.
