Employees at Online Transport receive the following benefits:
New fleet of 2020's coming into the mix. Have lots of dedicated runs with guaranteed pay. Temp Control Drivers like myself can make at minimum 1200/week and still be home on weekends.
My review is for the Toyota Dedicated out of Georgetown KY. The office is ran for the company in mind FIRST, not the drivers. You will be ran to death or if you are new, as little as they need you. It is off of a bid system, so if your low man on the totem pole, you get the crap. It is 40 cpm, all miles. They don't tell you that holidays are NOT paid for and Toyota shut downs are NOT paid for. SO that is about 3 weeks un paid. You are expected to take vacations only during the toyota shut downs, no other time or it is severely frowned upon. The Equipment is severely below par. They have maintenance staff on site at the yard, but they are so back logged that they do not have the capabilities to keep up with the demand. The trailers are maintained by a non english speeking staff that does the bare minimum to get your trailers back on the road. The trucks are nasty. Most of them are all filled with filth from years of cigarette smoke. If asked to get a truck cleaned, they whipe it down and that is it. Dispatch will push you to get these trucks to just "run" and do what you need to in order to keep that contracted toyota load on time. Multiple times I was stuck with a truck with leaks, air leaks, and told theres no spares and had to do it or i could take the pay cut and go home and they would cover it. These trucks run 73 mph and sometimes you HAVE to run full speed no matter the speed limit just to make the time limits. They have some runs that are over 600 miles in one day.... nice miles but they don't want to hear anything about running out of hours.
It's been a few years since I've worked for them but I liked them a lot. Had a dedicated run with them for a few years until they lost the contract. I would've stayed but they had nothing in my area. They take good care of their equipment. Pay is ok. Not sure if things are still the same or how they are handling the new hos. One year with them when my brother and I teamed we ran 250,000 miles which still wasn't the highest within the company and we were home every weekend and 2 other times through the week as well. Good luck.
I was on their Toyota dedicated account. Their equipment is junk. They have new trucks, but give them to drivers that have been there for 10 yrs. New students get stuck with old 2008 international crap that are over 600k miles. They don't keep up with maintenance! I was broke down at least once or twice every, or everyother week.
Now for their school, they offer a live in campus school, pay you while training and than pay you at a lower rate ( believe it was 38cpm) coming out of school.
Only good thing is its the only company you can train with that gets you home every weekend.
