Nice people in front office, and accessable, good equipment

Hard to get home regularly and consistantly, lower range pay for a top carrier, and brokered loads,

Well maintained equipment, lower range pay, hard to get home regularly unless you are from Nebraska, lots of brokered loads that aren't shippers of choice.

Treated like a person not a number.

Nothing that stands out to me.

Family environment, President of the Company knows you by your first name and sits outside with us drivers visiting while grilling lunch for us, at least once a month.

Pros
Maintenance, miles if willing to do east coast, on site truck wash and scale free to their drivers. Excellent equipment. Tom, the owner loves all of his drivers. Great guy that's always having cook outs or giveaways for his drivers. Their shop is amazing & accurate.
Cons
Office is too clicky & gets caught up in "he said, she said" driver chatter then starts judging drivers based on gossip bs. Ops manager turns a blind eye to issues like this to put a stop to it. Even if you stay out of the office you'll eventually get pulled into gossip somehow. Night time dispatch gal is a handful & constantly cuts you off when talking. She was a former driver & is a full fledged know it all that'll talk down to you anytime she wants to. Again, ops manager is aware of this and

Good company that'll give you great miles if you're willing to go past Ohio. Lots of east coast. Their truck and trailer maintenance is top notch. Never seen anything like it. They truly care about their equipment & even have an on site truck wash free for their drivers. I only left the company for a job with more home time.
