Cons
sometimes hard to please.

These guys are good. Adding my third truck. Sometimes I sit, but then they pay me to move - never moved a free empty mile since i been here

Pros
Good money, plenty of freight, dispatchers generally good. Reward loyalty in time of repairs and other incidents. Great reward program pay for your Lic plate, prepass, scales and all tolls with best pass
Cons
Safety rating not best mandatory pull in weigh stations in CA, OR, NM even with prepass because of drivers not fixing trailers not a company problem. Also loads are expedited 50 mph dispatch can get service failures very quickly if communication with company is poor.

Good company to work for, overall. Dedicated lanes in some cases, equipment good but not in maintained because of driver fault putting it repairs on next driver, causing safety rating to go down by dot, more inspections

Pros
Great miles and a pay package that pays well.
Cons
Sometimes the left hand does not work with the right hand. But it is fixed right away.

This is by far the best thing to ever happen to me. I get great miles have a great dispatcher and work for a company that values what I do for them.

Pros
Decent pay,always ontime for hometime, equipment not bad
Cons
Long waits between loads. Terminals are not really terminals but warehouses with no facilities

Typical of a expidited company. No more. No less. Worst part is usually the sit and sit. Then get load and run as fast as you can..

A friend of mine just walked away from a lease purchase with them 2 weeks ago. Not enough miles, not enough money. He's back to flatbed now.

Mileage company,pulling company trailers, drop N hook from terminal to terminal, mostly teams, if you run solo you'll be driving at night most of the time, at least I did(air freight) They're on elogs now. 0.93 plus FS. Got tired of being gone for 3-4 weeks and left them. Midwest is good area to run for FAF for solo.
