Profile

A Midwest carrier located in Fort Dodge, Iowa since 1984 Oberg Freight Company remains a family atmosphere. We know all of our drivers, and often their family members as well. As a Midwest carrier we run the twelve Midwest states listed below in order to get our drivers home on weekends, not just some weekends, each and every weekend. This allows our drivers to relax at home, be with their family, and be fresh for the coming week to meet our customers' needs. At Oberg Freight Company our Midwest carrier drivers are our culture, and as a result our customers speak very highly of their professionalism and service.

Not a one

All stated above... Oh except one, they take away your rental car the first day of orientation and just strand you at the hotel at night with no way to get anything to eat or drink... The hotel has frozen pizza for $10 that would cost you $2 at the store... This place is a joke... Too me less than a week to figure them out, the guy I went through orientation with has quit already too

I recommend you DO NOT WORK HERE !!! The recruiter Bill is a really nice guy, but will tell you anything you want to hear to get you there. I was promised newer equipment, no touch freight, mostly drop and hook, which may have been true if it was worth staying... You have to pay for your own scales, tolls, fluids, anything you need for your truck, no prepass, and the equipment is terrible... The truck that I was assigned had exterior damage, the paint was peeling off of it (all of the things Dot are looking for to pull you in for an inspection) I spoke with several drivers and they had all been fined, the inside had broken plastic, no fridge, and the Apu was under the bunk so your cords would be severed. They try to force you to move trailers around for free when you get to a destination, their hostiler is off on the weekend so guess who they want to move trailers with no pay.... And as far as no touch, you have to strap down these coils that will eat up at least an hour to 2 hours... They also charge you for the straps, a broom, a hardhat, vest, blower... I WOULDN'T WORK FOR THIS COMPANY !!!

Crappy equipment Clueless dispatchers Hometime is joke even if promised Promised pay is a lie No dental or vision ins just medical and it’s like $500 a month for family plan of ONLY medical.

The recruiter is s really nice guy and says all the right things to get you there, but the owners and safety director are full of crap when they tell you they value family. All they care about is getting their freight hauled regardless of the family cost to the driver. And they’ll cut you loose the second they realize your family comes first. They lie about the mileage wage too and rob you of several cents a mile after you agree to start. And dispatcher I had will send you to a customer to pick up 8 hours earlier than the appt, you’ll end up just sitting doing nothing. Don’t even get me started on the equipment either. Truck they gave me was trashed and had to have been driven til the wheels were damn near off.
