Pros
You can make a living
Cons
You have to put up with the supervisor

The tractor is yours so if you have a nice one then there you go. Pay is weekly. $2500 or so Home as often as you want to be. All the freight is light 25k or less. Managers are rock heads just like anywhere. The guys at the top are 10 plus year the ones at the bottom less than a year. Not much in the middle.

More miles catch week that you can't do legally. Fight for home time. Low pay.

Wannabe Conway with none realistic goals. Don't talk to customs. The planners need to be retained. 98% drop and hook.

worst customer service and dispatcher in Detroit. Do NOT USE

*****DO NOT USE THIS TRUCKING COMPANY****MOST UNPROFESSIONAL COMPANY I HAVE EVER USED FOR TRUCKING. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY. Rhonda might be the most unprofessional dispatcher, she is rude, unprofessional and obnoxious. screaming in the phone, Doesn't announce herself when she answers for the company and that just the start. What a joke.

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.
