Pay, home time, vacation, true to what they say.
Cons
Insurance has changed carriers every year. On the 3rd insurance company in 2 years.

Great company. In the 2 years I've been with them I've had no complaints. Great bosses that actually trust you to do the job you were hired to do. Good pay. 24 years in a truck and this is by far the best company I've ever worked for.

Black Horse Carriers Doesn't trust drivers

Black Horse is the best trucking company I've yet worked for. They treat me very well. You're right that there is little communication with management, they trust me completely to get my deliveries done and they don't stand over me and micromanage. That's a big plus for those of us who don't need our hands held. Also, there is no camera in my truck. 

Sounds like you got fired for a preventable accident and can't accept responsibility for your mistake

Black Horse Carriers strength test

I currently work for Black Horse. For the strength test, they sent me to a physical therapy place where they hook you up to some kind of resistance machine with sensors all over it. You have to lift each arm and each leg 5 times against the resistance and it measures how much force you can exert with each limb. I don't know how much the resistance was (they never told me), but it wasn't too hard and it won't be a problem for you unless you're in your 70s with a broken hip. It took less than half an hour to do the test. Hope this helps.

Black Horse Carriers-There is a reason why they are always looking for help.

I drive for Black Horse. I've never had a job as great as this one. I run out of Fort Wayne, Indiana. I deliver auto parts. I make over $1000 a week. Pay is salary based on miles and number of stops. I have a delivery window so start and end times are totally up to me within reason. Work at my own pace. Good benefits. I'd suggest anyone work for Black Horse from my experience with them.

Black Horse is a pretty good company. I drove for them back in 2007. The only reason I left was for a job closer to home. I was commuting 41 miles one way to the terminal to pick up the truck. On a daily basis, it gets old pretty quick.

Account I'm on pays miles and stop. The customer has hacked my route down to nothing. I'm currently making almost $500/wk less than when I started in 2011. $1650 wk - $1130 wk. I hate my schedule. Tues night and Sat night off.

ALDI Drivers

I've been with BHC for about 6 months now and so far it's been going well. I work on the PCA(packaging Corp of america) account in South central PA delivering cardboard boxes. The ad I read and responded to said 900-1100 weekly; I'm averaging a hard 1100. Good people to work with. Most days I'm left alone to do my work. 10-12 hour days, early AM start times. 
We just switched from Ryder to Penske and got brand shiny new 2017 Freightliners. Most are single screw so that sucks, but the 12 speed auto works world's away better than 10 automatic. Oh, and drum roll please...dash cam AND driver cam. So no more picking of nose and squishing it under seats! Also company paid satellite radio subscription.
My pay scale is cpm sliding but apart from that there is this: I'm paid for every minute of my time. 14 bucks a stop for first 45 minutes then it goes immediately to 18.50 an hour detention. All my runs are preloaded when I get there. 
We fuel at penske shops, meaning I drive up to fuel island and tell the attendant my mileage and he fuels the rig. BHC pays me 6 bucks a pop to do that. At the PCA location I work out of (Hanover PA), we don't have a yard jockey, but BHC pays 3 bucks per trailer move. I average 2-3 a day so 30-45 bucks every week for that, plus 12-18 bucks in fuel money. Not a lot but it adds up. Beer money if that's your thing. 
What else....the larger PCA plants have yard jockeys, depends on which plant you work out of. Oh, mostly no touch freight. Some truckload but mostly LTL. Benefits seem average. 6 paid holidays at 150 per day for me anyhow. I got a nearly 20% discount on my monthly bill when I switched to Verizon. We can get what I believe is Ford X Plan pricing because of BHC auto parts account. 
I started at USX for 5 months then drove for Knight for 3 years OTR. I spent many days and nights counting down the 2 hour no-pay detention window, endlessly waiting for freight, hunting empties, missing hometime dates, and all the rest. I'm making more money and working less, with more time off, here at BHC than I did OTR. I mean, I'm not rich or anything but I go home every night and have weekends off, which to me is worth something. 
Well, that's my first post on these boards, hope it helps someone. Not about Aldi account but just wanted to mention PCA which I think is a decent account. Not sure what they're hiring for in PA or how the company shapes up elsewhere but things are good on my end. Not perfect! But it'll do.
