    Anyone hear of these guys? They seem to be a team company. Only found one post on another website about these guys, so can't really count that. I think they have automatics. Any info? Good or bad experiences?

    Thanks,

    The link provided takes me to the home page, but a search turns up very little. the one link I did find was

    www.thetruckersreport.com/...questions.../29007-good-company-for- husband-wife-team-2.html

    So, I had already read this one report, and posted this thread for new info -- or at the least, something besides this.

    Thanks

    Use the Search feature. It will take you right to the threads. I cannot get the link to hold, I guess because it is a search.

    Thanks for your help! I was able to get the search feature to get me to the thread you were trying to help me find. Somehow, it wasn't getting me there at first.

    Again, many thanks Chicken..You can delete this thread if you want since I found the other thread.

    Again, TYVM Chicken

    My husband and I have worked for Quest for a year now and still have to pinch ourselves every week when we see our paychecks. This company is the greatest one out here. They are sooo driver oriented and treat each and every driver as "part of the family." We researched 3 companies before we decided on Quest and cannot say enough GREAT things about the company and our co-workers. The last that we heard, there is an extensive waiting list of drivers waiting to get on board. That says it all. The respect that we receive from shippers and receivers is also amazing. We cannot say enough great things about our company and the team that we work with. Good luck and be safe.
     
    TRKRSHONEY and 1026 Thank this.

    Well I drove for quest 4 years. When we first started they were great to drive for. We ran great miles, made good money. Then about a year into it, it all changed. Our insurance went through the roof, from 32 a month to over 100 a month. Even more if you insure your family. Those prices were for just me. Then they cut the pay by 3 cents a mile. Cut the lay over pay, even took our points off our loyalty cards. Things got really petty. Have to call in and listen to a 30 minute tape on how many ways you'll get fired.
    They advertise you can make 61 cents a mile now. I've seen so many different ads on them and pay I have no idea what there paying. I remember one driver appreciation so called lunch. They put a picnic table out by the dumpster and had hotdogs and hamburgers in a cooler for the drivers. You'll see one ex team that used to post a lot of crap both online and in there ads. It was all a load of crap. There personnel friends of the dickerson's. They are teams and autoshift. They even have air ride on there new trailers, I dare you to find an airbag on the trailer. All there old frieghtliners have over a million miles on them. They buy the cheapest truck they can. That's what I know of them. I'd never go back. If your looking for a team company, let me know, I'll steer ya to a good one.

    Not doubting what anyone says, but I have this question... If there is a waiting list, why do they spend $$ on the two page color ads in the t/s job rags every issue?
     
    sookie Thanks this.
