I have an uncle who drives for then out of Florida. He went there after Heartland Express. He actually seems to really really like them, wishes he was home more but has no complaints other than that. This is just what I heard from him, I do not work there so I can't say anything bad or really good.
Um, I dont have a "driver manager". I get my loads straight from the owner of the company I'm leased to and I'm really a happy camper!!
You have no clue about my work ethic or how long Ive been driving so Im not gonna respond to your rant about how it was back in the day because frankly I could careless, as Im only 32 years old and have had my CDL for 13 years.
The reason we are regulated to death is because
They will never have to a reason to shut me down as I dont do anything wrong!! If the industry goes back to the way it was, with todays highway congestion, death rates would be thru the roof!!
That will never happen!! Read the beginner forums and you will see thousands of ready and willing bodies to drive for 25-30 cpm
Tell me Ol' Wise One, why does it matter??
Wait, what?? Wrestler?? Anyways, I wouldnt even call myself a "truck driver", Im just a young poor sap can hauler who runs about 300 miles a day, as I only want to work 7am-5pm. I have no desire to be king of the road or run 100mph and god forbid one of my sons takes over my CB Handle; as I hope they are more successful then me.
Your delusional if you really believe people are gonna pull over to help folks now a days. With Qualcomms, cell phones, and communication devices why would I pull over?? So what if you blow your drives!! What am I gonna do?? Change it for you or sit there so your not alone and scared?? If someone needs help they will wave you down or signal they are in distress and need assistance.
BRAVO!! BRAVO!! You sir deserve another notch on your belt buckle!! Your "daddy" would be proud!! Ladies and gentlemen lets get a fund going to get this 13th Generation Super Trucker a pair of cowboy boots with gold tips and spurs.........
on a computer....LOL
Look buddy if you have a problem about everything I type...Just take it up with my Rear, because its the only one who gives a Crap on what you say or think...
Lol at the above. I am a current driver with CF. I rehired in Jan earlier this year. I have been employed with the company altogether approximately 2 years. I have no complaints. I get home when I .want. It is a small enough company that you see the same faces and get to know the people you work with and for if you want. Plenty of miles. Turned 3500 this week. No idle policy(you're in it, idle it if you need too). All the tractors I've driven have been 2010 Macks or newer so they have all been nice. It's like any other trucking company. Here they tend to leave you the heck alone. Majority of freight is in southeast. If you run out of the region, typically you will load right back to the south FL-TX. It is a 48 state carrier though. No force dispatch into NYC but in 2 years, I have never been on a NY load. I do have the fancy sticker. They offer benefits as you would expect from any employer. I opt out of most since I'm 30 years old and in good health, no dependants, so I don't have specifics. No pets. They do allow approved passenger, must be 12yrs or older I think, must have a pulse. I don't view this too often. I'm sure I left a lot unanswered. Long story short, I'm happy and I don't plan on leaving anytime soon. They treat me well. This is from a DRIVER, not related, and NOT a recruiter. Hope this was somewhat informative. Oh, did I mention the $1000 driver referral program? Enter the code HATG when applying. Hahaha. I had to!
based on everything i have read an heard about cf. I wouldn't be willing to work for them. the 9 matching complaints from rippoff report alone. from 9 different people. is enough to stay away from them. But, i see this more and more now a days. good companies turn bad, and hide behind a once good name.
plus i talked to the recruiter. not real informative about anything. mostly the recruiter was in a hurry to get off the phone. I think to move on to the next person. so probably getting a commision for filling the orientation class with drivers. so that is a big red flag to me..
a good rule of thumb: don't work with companies that say you are family. family screws family over. and there is always fighting.
