Pros
Good paying. No busy work or time wasting. Okay health and benefits
Cons
No major cons just the overall ruggedness of the job plus having to worry about placarding.

Worked for action for afew months hauling dry van trailer. Average pay was about $1100 sometimes more. I was OTR out for two weeks at a time. They never wasted my time, I had loads piled up and ran thru the weekends. Dispatch was former driver so no bull crap from him. Ran out of Oklahoma terminal. They treated me well never took a bus: always car rental. I was tired but happy. Learnt alot from them. Trailers could be newer and placarding a dry van is a pain in the butt. I had a couple friends hauling tanker for them who were happy with pay most of the time. I'd recommend them if you want to begin hauling hazmat. Short term disability is not free though just saying.

Pros
Not many very Hard to survive
Cons
Not a lot of work in their company, loosing contracts

Dispatcher was very inexperienced, would get sent on 250 mile runs with 2. Day deliveries, so .50 per mile adds up to $75 per day. This happens at least 1 time a week. So they feel you the driver is staying busy but driver can not pay the bills

Pros
Mostly dedicated to haz. Usually going to places you've already been to.
Cons
General info. Harassment over Qualcomm, mostly spamming the employees with b s.

Closed most of their own shops. Drove with check engine light on for three months. They tend to not give you correct info(pay, retirement, vacation, etc), until you find out about it on your own. Then it's too late. They treat you great sometimes, then screw you other. You never know where you stand.

Good home time. I'm paid percentage of loads. Averaging about 1,900 miles a week. Looking to make 65k this year as a company driver.

Avoid Action Resources!

The pay is very low and very inconsistant. Actually had a negative paycheck. Hometime is very inconsistant. If you do manage to make some money, you wont ever be home. Do yourself a favor, and drive for someone else. I worked for them for a year, and they put me into bankruptcy!!

Action Resources???

I spoke briefly with one of their drivers this past week. Don't have any real details for you other than he seemed happy with the hauls he's getting. He lives near our Tidewater Transit terminal in Decatur, AL, and actually parks his truck on our yard when he's home. I've seen him/his truck there during the week several times, as well as most weekends, so he apparently gets home some during the week at times. Action has a tank wash & they clean a lot of our chemical tankers. Been there several times, & the folks are always friendly & helpful. They seem to keep an ad on indeed.com looking for experienced drivers. Sorry I can't be more helpful.
