Pros
Attentive Fargo shop, above average starting CPM, decent equipment.
Cons
Hometime difficult if not MN or NC, no long-term $ incentive, CPM actually drops when there's less freight/miles. Typical reefer 0200 appointments, hours in docks without $ & limited/irregular rest.

A medium-sized reefer carrier with owner aspirations to be a big player. Tiny, region-based dispatch open standard business hours. Decent starting carrier. Top 50 CPM requires constantly calling for loads (preplans uncommon), live in MN or NC & out for 3+ weeks.

Pros
Liberal home time policy, great equipment, dispatch treats you like an equal. A lot of North Carolina drivers and freight Paid detention, layover, breakdown
Cons
Medical bennies are a bit expensive. Trucks are governed at 64

Excellent reefer company. Top notch equipment. All trucks have fridge, APU, and inverter. Little to none micromanagement. No New England, NY, California, south west. A lot of Midwest, Northwest, and South.

Pros
Equipment Miles Pay Home time
Cons
Benefits package

Really fantastic reefer company. Top of the line Peterbilt equipment (governed at 64mph). Home time as often as you want as far as I can tell (I'm sure there's a limit). $0.50/mile top pay (count on $0.48 without going above and beyond). 3000+ miles/week is more than doable if you rarely take time off like myself. Average is probably somewhere around 2500.

Pros
New equipment, no babysitting, lots of miles available, we are not held at terminals and forced to complete checklists before being allowed to depart. We are treated like adults here.
Cons
maintenance does a good job, but they seem disorganized sometimes about what was supposed to get done and the history of what has been done.

I'm a new driver. Within 8 months of working here I was making .50 per mile. Trucks are all blue Peterbilt. A couple trucks are different brand, but those are "experiments". Home time policy is basically go home as often as you want for as long as you want (within reason) and give 10 days notice prior. Very accommodating. New drivers to the industry start out at .36 per mile. Then we have performance pay, which is based on mileage, mpg, being on time, safety, tickets, etc. up to .50 cpm. You are reevaluated every 4 months. Hazmat is required and you get an extra .05 cpm on hazmat loads. In 8 months I've hauled 3 hazmat loads. I'm kept plenty busy. I averaged 3041 miles/week over my first 6 months.

Pros
People that work with you, not against you! Great Equipment, Great Pay, Good Home time.
Cons
Normal Industry problems. Can't really complain about anything else.

The equipment for Ltd. drivers is top notch. The miles are great if you are willing to make yourself available. The folks in dispatch work hard to get you home when you want to be home, not just when it's easy for them. The pay is up to you, you decide by how much you drive, how safe you are, and following company guidelines.
