Last time I worked for SYGMA (Sysco food distribution's national restaurant division) was a decade ago, but I saw a lot since then, enough to know it was a good company that did not cheat employees. I went back to school/graditated kollege.
I get paid for every mile and every thing that I do. If I get caught up at a backhaul for a longer than reasonable amount of time, I get paid. If I have a breakdown or shut down for weather, I get paid. My 10 hour break is paid. I am not talking about some rediculous and insulting rate of pay either. For any faults this company has, the pay makes up for it. I also know where and when I will be on the road so I can have a life and make plans with my family and not worry about having break them. Did I mention that I get paid for major holidays? If the holiday falls on a scheduled work day I have to work it, but I also get the extra pay. This company works you hard but, in my opinion, the fair pay makes it worth doing. I am away from home for only two days out of the week and will make over 70k this year, including bonuses.
