    I know theres probaby threads about this already, but to make a more recent, and modified one, and, to help out the expert, intermidiate and the noob, I wanted to ask, and rank and category, what are the best tanker companies, by how they treat the trucker, the benefits, the overtime, the pay and hometime.. anybody have any companies or experiences?:biggrin_25520:

    has for my experience, start taking notes on tankers you see on the road. if you are already a tanker driver take note of the tanker companies you are loading wit firsth. that was my simple formula witch lead me to schneider bulk, yes thats right scneider bulk. best dam tanker yanking ever experienced.

    first of all they have all the leading refinerys sewed up. that is just the tip of the iceberg. i made a very easy and relaxing $75.0000 first year. trust me they have it all. you are paid for absolutly everything you do. just send in your work via qaulcom and boom its on your check. benefits check equal to white collar. equipment check best dam mantaided on the road. sure they are governed but guess what you get paid for running under governer. i could go
    on but i challenge you to find out for yourself.

    Hometime???? STAY LOCAL if you worry about home time. Your home daily plus local drivers make more money. IMHO. They usually pay hourly and not by the load crap.

    Ranking them will be difficult because all you have to go on is opinion and hearsay, somebody will always disagree..

    What works for some might not work for others..

    As far as Scheider goes I have never heard any customer. Say anything good about them.
    We just got a contract they lost due to poor performance.
    If the pay was that great they would have a waiting list of experienced drivers and wouldn't be constantly recruiting newbies.

    Where do you live?

    Reason I ask is the small trucking companies are going to be hiring drivers in a specific area around them and their customers. Heck, even the big companies have hiring ranges they stick to I suppose.
