Pros
Good mileage pay (50 cpm to start), 98% drop and hook for a clean trailer for next load, $20 an hour for detention after 2 hours and the same for breakdown pay, steady work- no sitting (and if you do end up sitting there's $100 for hold-over pay)
Cons
Not much here. Some older trailers and you'll start in an older (3-4 yr. old truck). I started 1 1/2 years ago and will be in line for a new truck in the spring of 2018. If you do have to use a spare truck while yours gets worked on it will not be the best but at least you can keep working.

I am a 'system' driver living 200 miles from my home terminal so I knew going in that I would be out two weeks at a time. There was no sugar coating it. In fact, when I mentioned I lived close to a major interstate and could probably get by the house a little more often, the recruiter said probably not. No one tells you what you want to hear, just what you need to hear. But they get you home when promised and pay you the out-of-route miles when you do go home. The pay is very good for this industry and the benefits, while not the greatest, sure aren't the worse either. I am on track to make 75-80,000 dollars this, my first full calendar year. Some of the equipment is older, especially the trailer fleet, but tank trailers are very expensive so a company will run them as long as safely possible. I have never had a trailer issue on the road other than a couple tires and my tractor went down one time due to the DEF system sensor- and I have had a truck with less than 25,000 miles go down for that.

Pros
Excellent pay and try to keep their drivers happy.
Cons
Dash cams, one faces road, the other the driver. You get used to it after awhile.

Tanker Company. Food grade. The starting pay is .50 mile loaded or empty. Average pay has been $1,175, after deductions and medical deductions. Home time is 2 days every 2 weeks. They pay you to go home/@ .50 mile. Most dispatchers very helpful and on the ball. Overall one of the best companies I have worked for.
