Pros
Great retirement, pension, stock. Salary. Health program. I had a 3.5 day weekend, making over 50k (10 years ago), plus benefits. Average was a 2 night weekend, 2-3 nites home. Could do extra local/regional run to get a load of burgers for the warehouse, etc, ~$38/hr. Guys clearing 80k .
Cons
You go out even if governor's warning on road conditions, you can stop and wait and get overtime, but it's not that simple. You will be in shape, lazy don't cut it. You go out late afternoon or evening (but home several nights a week, too). I really can't say cons... IDK, moving a truck load a shift on a hand-cart ain't for everyone, but you will work with guys who can hack it, so it weeds out the riff-raff pretty quick. Good luck.

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.

Pros
Fair pay, great benefit package, scheduled work
Cons
Equipment is not assigned so it rotates to other drivers and there are several that have no business being on the road, management can sometimes micromanage

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.
