This bunch is the stereotypical group we have all heard of in the business. I was there a few years ago for orientation. All we heard was, "if this happens, it's your fault and you will pay for it (or you will be fired because of it)," for even the tiniest infraction. Seriously. I nearly made it through the orientation, but I couldn't stand the BS piling up around me. Like many before me (according to the motel employees), I left early enough to get a position the next week. I did.
DMT is a small flatbed company of 120 or so trucks. They recently sold 75% to P&S. The trucks I saw were older, with 500,000 miles or more, but well maintained. The owner is hands-on and works every day, sometimes on the road. Everyone in the office is really nice and accommodating. Most drivers get home on the weekend, usually loaded with a Monday delivery appointment. This would be a great home for an experienced flatbed driver living in the Southeast. I recommend starting flatbed with a big company like Melton or TMC, where you can learn the basics in a classroom and warehouse, in a comprehensive way. Me? Back to reefer!
