    Just curious as to what you all think is the best company to drive for. It appears that someone has a beef with all the companies listed on this forum. So, just interested in which one you feel is the best of them all to drive for? Please answer with the company name and the reason why you think it is the best to drive for. This could be personal experience with them or just a feeling.

    What's going to be best for one person may not be best for you. You need to figure out what you are looking for, and find the company that fits those needs and wants the best.

    As far as people having a beef about all companies, part of it is blowing off steam, part of it is people not realizing what they were really getting into and part of it is just that the company turned out not to be the right fit. Most of the large companies are just a starting point until you get some real experience (2 years at least) under your belt, and then you can go to the smaller companies and get the better pay, etc.

    Ditto on Libit comments. You have to look at what your needs and wants are from a company and family and then you can search out who will fit into that.

    Yes, I realize that one persons treasure is anothers trash. But I am not seeking the best to drive for for me, only I can determine that. Just to see what you all think is the best, based on your experience, likes, etc.
